Reviews for rRootage Online

EUROGAMER (Rating 9/10):
"rRootage Online is why Kenta Cho releases his games in the way he does; it's now got a chance to hit a new audience, and be enjoyed by many more people, in what feels like the definitive version."

APP SPY (Rating: 4/5):
"...for those who consider themselves fans of the shmup genre, this is without a doubt a must buy."

TOUCHARCADE:
"Anyone who enjoys a nice 2D shooter should grab this one instantly."

WHATSONIPHONE (Rating: 4.5/5):
"rRootage is a classic game faithfully rendered on the iphone"

FINGERGAMING:
"rRootage offers much more variety than the typical App Store shoot-em-up [...]. Shooter fans should definitely check this one out."

POCKETGAMER:
"The fact that this gem is available on the App Store is great news."

THEPORTABLEGAMER:
"If R-Type was too simple for you, or DoDonPachi Resurrection was something you completed with one eye closed while doing one handed pushups, then this is worthy of your time and money."


Controls:

* Touch and hold to move ship
* Second touch to trigger special
* Double tap to pause game

Menu:
* Touch the squares to select mode/stage

Game:

Control your ship and avoid the barrage. Use the laser to destroy the battleship of the enemy. You can cause more damage if you fire the laser close to the enemy. When all ships are destroyed, the game is over. The ship extends at 200,000 and every 500,000 points.

. Normal Mode

This is the standard game mode.
- Special -> Bomb
The bomb wipes enemyies bullets. The number of bombs are displayed at the left-down corner.


. PSY Mode

As your ship grazes a bullet, the graze meter (displayed at the right-down corner) increases. When the graze meter becomes full, the ship becomes invincible for a while.
- Special -> Rolling
This movement widens the range the ship can graze.


. IKA Mode

Your ship has two attributes, white and black. All bullets also have these attributes, and your ship can absorb bullets that have the same attribute. Absorbed bullets are changed into lasers automatically.
- Special -> Attribution change
Change your ships attribute.


. GW Mode

Your ship can use the reflector. The reflector reflects bullets around your ship.
- Special -> Reflector
To use the reflector, you have to activate special until the reflector meter (displayed at the left-down corner) becomes empty. You can use the reflector only if the reflector meter displays 'OK'.

Just wanted to revive this thread since not many peeps on gamecenter. I highly recommend this game, its only $.99 and has a a ton of levels. It would be nice if people bought this, more cave shooter fans should buy this. It has all sorts of mechanics, each is special in its own fun way...

Enough of my rambling, try the free version and then buy the hd version.
