Default Game Impressions

My experience so far:

The menu's are overly animated and take time to load.
The gameplay is pretty decent, and what you would expect from a twin-stick shooter.
Being able to enlist a "Bro" from GameCenter is agreat idea, even if it's not live multiplayer. However, your "Bro" AI is as dumb as bricks, and will usually die right at the beginning.

There is a nice selection of weapons and equipment, unfortunately most of it is locked behind ridiculous amounts of In App Purchases. IAP everywhere you look. Expensive too: around $10.00 for a set of high level equipment.

Glitchy. Just while writing this, my iPod fell asleep. On resume, it completely forgot all of my actions performed (equipping, weapons purchase) since my last battle. It even reset the tutorial popups. The game crashed twice while I was playing. And there's a short lag whenever you get hit by a badguy.

Wow, am I ever disappointed with this title.

Thanks strivemind for the impressions

Why does Glu do this ? I mean take for example Toyshop adventures, they create these amazing games, that are really impressive but require you to fork out so much money to be able to enjoy them. I do not mind paying for an app, (i know this one is free, but hopefully you will understand what I mean ) , but then let me be able to do everything, unlock all achievements etc.

This game has potential but the ridiculous IAP price is depressing, I mean why not a 1.99 game or something reasonable. I'm disappointed with Glu lately, because they create these fantastic games, and then it seems some marketing person gets hold of the app and ruins it.

PS : The glitches exist with my install to (iPhone 3GS), all in all quite disappointing

You don't have to purchase anything!
You can earn your money in-game while playing.
This game is pretty fun. Cool level/enemy designs.
Already one of the better dual stick shooters on this platform.

And it's free, why should anyone pass?! Test it for yourself.

I am fine with IAP as long as itīs optional.

But somehow I doubt Glu will follow that path.
I d/led it. Impressions later.

It doesn't seem optional. Most of the good weapons require war bucks and the only way i found to get them is through IAP

You can convert War Bucks to coins but you can't convert coins into war bucks

Was really looking forward to this! But, the stupidest little thing is keeping me from playing. The game won't flip screen! Not comfortable with the case I use. Waiting for update.
