The matches are nice and short; I can see myself playing this often.
Good game Square

For any who have already played this, how does it compare to N.O.V.A. Multiplayer ?

I played NOVA multiplayer only for a bit; way too much cheating.

This games FUN! And looks AMAZING on retina display. Need to learn the maps, and I've had a couple wonky respawns, but so far so good. I'm JaredN on their if anyone wants to add me (apparently Boardumb was too racy a name to be accepted )

I bought this at least to support the devs. This game looks great, and I love that there is a radar: helps speed up the game. Idk how much or how often I will play, but I bet it plays great

loving this game

$2.99 for all this! I can't wait tell it's morning and even more people get on. Smooth controls, very fun gameplay, everything looks polished and well thought out. No NG-annoyance and way more enjoyable than Nova's multi - this is how a handheld FPS is supposed to feel. I like my sensitivity at 7 and the control stick visuals off.

Everything as mentioned looks nice and polished, something about shooting feels weird for me though

Ok after a few more matches, melee seems way too powerful. So does the sniper. And I had the game almost lag out to where everyone was just frozen but you couldn't hurt anyone, then I just died out of nowhere.

Still having fun though
