I have this on Steam for PC. Fantastic game, intense dual-stick shooter action, and over-the-top visuals.

I also have this on Steam, and if the game plays like its PC counterpart, it'll easily become one of the most popular shooters on the iOS platform.

Default Game Impressions

Never heard of this before, so fresh impressions here:

This is very much a very cool visual entertainment app first; game second.

I couldn't believe the player controlled ship when I first moved the left stick: zero animation? It feels like you're controlling a cardboard cut-out. What a way to break immersion, and what on earth were they thinking?

Controls leave something to be desired.

On the whole, again, more of a visual toy and something to show off your device. Gameplay-wise this has nothing on the top half dozen or so "proper" games in the genre.

Although I also need to get used to the controls... stick appears where you touch but only after your first thumb movement while touching... a bit weird. But besides that, I think I just found my new favorite dual stick shmup! Presentation is awesome, enemies are cool. You can upgrade a ton. There are IAP for more in-game money, but you definitely can ignore that.

Brilliant game.
