Terrible the way these people take codes and don't post opinions

Anyway just bought the game. Reminds me of Alien breed. Nice twin stick shooter, keys, ammo, the usual. I'd you like top down shooters you should like this

A fair few spelling mistakes in the tutorial but nothing huge

1) Shot the walls, or
2) Don't leave that reactor to the end, or
3) Destroy the other 3 reactors, and do not deal with the upper one at all, it is enough to destroy 3 out of 4

More promo codes

More promo codes
Last time I did not get too much feedback, so for those who like top down dual stick shooters (not just arena shooters) so games like Alien Breed, Tower Assault, Counter Strike 2D or Alien Swarm here is the deal:
Download the free version of the game, complete the first 3 levels, post a feedback about:
-gameplay
-controls
-difficulty
and you will get a Promo Code for the full version (you can save incredible value of 1$!!!) . I have only 5 Promo Codes for this reason, so the first 5 wins!

As far as the controls go....they work well. I really think you could drop the action button for the doors you don't need to shoot or have a key for.
Just walk into them and they should open.

The difficulty is pretty easy. I did not die while playing the three levels.

As far as game play goes, I think you could consider the following.

I have alien breed and really like the game, but not very many people talk
about it on the forums. Not sure why? Perhaps the game would have done better
If it had co-op play or multiplayer.

Lets face it, Alien Breed came out before your game , and did not make a huge splash....though I find it fun....played the Amiga version to death!

Considering the above Info, If I was developing the game I would have the
ability to play co-op or versus mode. In co-op give the team objectives. Rescue
a scientist and escort them to the lift. The rescued scientist then gives you the access card into the next bay where you must restart 3 generators
to power up the laser door that stops the aliens from entering the level. Once done, the level Boss appears , perhaps breaking through a wall ,and you must
work as a team to take it down. This thing is not slow. It moves fast! Doors can be closed to slow it down. The boss will have to break through the doors to continue the chase. You may
need to lure it into a room where your team mate will operate the console that
powers up the laser beam door that takes a good chunk of health off the boss
or kills it .


If your team mate goes down , you can revive him or her if you get there in time.

You could even tell a story through logs found on computers or give new
objectives this way.

Also, consider having more types of enemies. Some may spit goo at you. Others explode when they get near you.

Anyway , I think you get the idea

Good luck with your game guys!

I already have the full version but wanted to say that I am enjoying it. The levels are more puzzle driven and immersive than typical iOS dual stick shooter fare. The controls are smooth. At first it seemed the the main character walked too slow but i enjoyed that it gives a good sense of horror/mystery exploration. I agree the gameplay so far feel a tad too easy with enemies only occasionally feeling threatening. I recommend it for DSS completist or those new to the genre. It reminds me a lot of Doom from a top down perspective.

Thanks for the feedback, promo codes sent in PM.

The free version is not too difficult, that should give just a taste of the gameplay.
The full version has different levels starting from the second level, with respawning monsters from the third, that should be more challenging. I would be happy if you would post your feelings about that difficulty level too.

And still some promo codes left for testers!

Wow! Thanks for the confirmation undead! The game plays great! A lot better than I thought, and a LOT smoother than Alien Breed, which was one of the things that turned me off of it...
