Revolt.

Hand-downs, it's the best. With 20 survival maps and lotsa weapons and epic rolling techniques it's the bomb.

Wait till Max Adventure is out, that's no doubt the best one.

True! That one will definitely be awesome.

And Don't forget Bug Heroes and Etolis: Arena. Those look good too.

Agreed, they do look good, but I actually played Max Adventure, so I'm certain about that. :>

I can't wait to get my hands on that one. It's like my Number 1 most anticipated game.

my personal faves are and always will be (probably):
PEWPEW 2
and
METEOR BLITZ

noth games have awesome slick controls, and intense gamplay to match. pewpew 2 had LOADS of replay value for me, because of the medal system, and when i got tired of one mode, i just switched to another! the story missions were, though short lived, great fun!

meteor blitz has an arcade mode and a survival mode, but i mainly play the survival mode. and it rocks. think superstardust on an Idevice. superb graphics, effects, music, the lot.

get them both

also, having tested all of the aforementioned but unreleased dual stick shooters, i can say max adventure pwns for the casual dual stick shooter, bug heroes for the RPG dudes, and etolis arena is somewhere along the lines of revolt. my fave would be max adventure though, as it's great fun to get into once in a while, in between the more intense dual stick shooters, pewpew, meteor blitz, etc.

These are both excellent, I'm also partial to Isotope.
