"Project Sanctuary puts a lot of fun back into a genre that hasnt been too enticing lately and easily deserves a spot on your device if youre into exciting top-down shooters." - 4/5 AppAdvice.com

" It's quick and responsive, and it's got a surprisingly solid back-end, which includes four different characters to choose from, multiple game modes and settings, and even an in-game talent tree where you can specialize your characters and weapons as necessary in order to bring the best fight that you can." - Mike Schramm

"Project Sanctuary is a should buy at $0.99 and is one of the finest games in its genre." Felix Xiao

Hmm. Why no interest in this? Usually folks around here fall over themselves at dual stick shooters...with rpg elements to boot. And this one seems to look good. Would like to see a video personally though.

Yep, does look good. Alive 4-ever with a sci-fi twist?

In a nutshell.

The gameplay is solid. Good controls and smooth framerate. Monsters are badly in need of some extra frames of animation, but the variety between different types is very good so far (not just in looks but also in behaviour.)

Difficulty seems fairly brutal, even on normal, and even in the first few levels, particularly if you are trying to achieve all the objectives. Previous levels can be replayed however, for extra experience.

Multiplayer appears to be local only, wifi or Bluetooth.

I'd say overall there is a lot to like here, particularly if you're an Alive4Ever fan. Not a whole lot of originality, as well as the token cheesy storyline and characters, but the gameplay is definitely solid as well as challenging, and warrants a recommendation if you like this kind of thing.
