Digging the art style. Artistic and cute.

First impression: the chances of me downloading a game with not even one in-game screenshot on its page are somewhere considerably south of zero.

I added another screenshot to the App description. Also I have attached a couple of extra screens to this post ;-)

But I also love the art style. Is there a chance for a video?
We will get a video for you soon ;-)

Very nice game with a great artstyle. The normal gamemode is of normal length, but the survival mode keeps you coming back for more.

A really neat shooter, love how the bosses of the stages keep taunting you throughout the levels.

For 99 cents....give it a go.

And its from the guys who did Pocket Creatures, which was also great and had a cool artstyle.

Update: Played a few more levels and the game is just great. I like that you keep your upgrades, even when dying, so that you can try the levels you failed slightly more powerful than before. This game is turning out to be a real surprise hit.

Hi everyone,

Just played the game and killed the last boss, but then the game doesn't do anything. "Daisy" which I had to save flies around me, I take no damage, the background is moving but there is no ending to this. I waited quite a while nothing happend and after I restarted the game, the survival mode isn't unlocked because "You diddn't finished story mode" but I got the achievment for killing the last boss???

Is this a bug or do I have to do something to finish the story mode.

I liked the game very much until now...

Thanks everyone

Hi FuzzyBear,
Glad you liked our game :-)

It is not a bug :-)

Try not moving for a while and Daizy will eventually fall in love with you.


Cheers,
