145.2?

This game is fairly fat in disc space. I might have bought it if it were smaller in size (20 - 30 MB).

I'd still love to hear impressions!

What does size have to do with if you will buy the game or not?

Is this a scored survival like game or an adventure game with endless continues?

It's a role-playing game, where you can collect upgrades. If you find all the five boss upgrades, then you can play in survivor mode.

If you know where you're going, you could get all of the upgrades in about an hour.

To get all of the gun and defensive items would take about a day.

Based on feedback, here's some play advice...
  1. Hold the touch to shoot, don't tap. Touch directly behind TANK to shoot his gun, with the touch held, you can aim.
  2. Touching TANK directly makes him use his sword. This can be used to create combos. Lead off with the gun and then use the sword when an enemy is in close.
  3. Collect the 5 upgrades to unlock the survivor area. Those upgrades come from bosses.
  4. Quests are quick way to get a lot of gold.
  5. Maybe work together to figure out the secrets faster. Maybe post cool info here

Apple's new cloud feature might help you out.
