^ I got that bug too, but I haven't played Time Attack yet. What happened was, I played missions 1-5 the first time, died on the boss, and then played 1-5 again, at which point it bugged out during the middle of the boss fight.

There is an achievement for cleaning 5000 enemy balls. I have no idea what this means, but it gives a piece of equipment, so I want to get this achievement. Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Quick tip: There's a hidden achievement for dying without killing anything, just like there was in ElectroMaster.

Thanks so much for making me aware of Electromaster. Love that, the classic font, the intro with the lines. Just like a classic 80s arcade game

I'll buy this now for sure

Couple of notes - it's not universal but going back between this and ElectroMaster I actually think the built-in filtering helps the arcade CRT effect on the iPad at 2x. And the control schemes have no trouble adapting.

I did run into a bug, at the first boss - the help/intro text sequence would play over every time I tried to tap. It may have had something to do with playing that section in Time Attack before I'd actually got that far in story, or it might have been a random thing, but it did happen a couple of times though I eventually got past it. I reported it to the author but he hasn't been able to repro.

Anyway, great game. I don't think anyone has done a better job of creating a "lost arcade game" yet.
i agreed..

I'm not mean to detour, but I'm really curious about Deathsmiles now, you have mentioned it more than three times!

This is a awesome game!! Tons of content. I have one question though....how do you pause in the story mode? The only way I can get out is dying and there's no menu!??
