just think of it as a horseshoe crab and buy it youll like it

genres are not to be seen as forms of textual codifications, but as systems of orientations, expectations and conventions that circulate between industry, text and subject.

tilt to live + spirit = silverfish?

What has the player to do? I'd think (judging by the trailer) that one has to reach bombs that will crush the chasing hordes. Subject: survive!? right?

Yeah like you said, and it's really a great game. I have been playing "Reaper Mode" for about an hour now, beautiful game and soooooo addictive

Cheers for the kind comments folks! I'm really hoping to have the opportunity to keep working on the game as I've got a ton more content planned.

And clearly I did something right if certain folks are too creeped out to even try the game Only way to overcome your fears is to face them head on! You may even learn to love the sweet little buggers

Really love the game, but is there ways t add more controls? I'm horrible with the swipe.

Other than that, well polished! 3 modes, a whole bunch of achievements and fantastic visuals. I could totally see Spirit and Silverfish eventually meeting for an epic teamup. ;-)

Favorite: Doodle Jump, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Battle Bears, Hook Champ, Incident, Minigore, Helsing's Fire, Monster Dash, Tilt to Live, PvZ, Super Mega Worm, Age of Zombies, Wispin, Cut the Rope & Rogue Runner

Gotta admit, I'm with you there about hating silverfish, but I like the icon, and I picked up the game and it's pretty good! Like it! As the one guy said 'face your phobia'!
