I'm tempted but its strange that no major websites have reviewed it. The review on binaryjoe.co.uk is the PC version from 2009 and that sites just a blog

Bit at that price i'll wait for one of the big iOS sites to review it. Hope it's good though

Yeah, I only saw 1 review (can't seem to find it on google now, might have been using bing) it praised the pc version mostly. Reviewer said he was only half an hour in, game was a lot like the pc version, but, cited some control issues.

Edit: found it.

No IAP offered is almost enough to have me try it. If no one else does, I'll D/L tomorrow.

Thanks for that. Doesn't sound too bad and I'm tempted but I'll wait for a review from a mainstream site.

Ahahaha! I remember playing this on the PC YEARS ago! Cant remember when exactly, but i believe it was over 5 years ago.

It was a blast playing this before, and one of the first twin stick-ish shooters (actually, it's directional for movement, and mouse for aim, iirc) i have played.

Yup... same here... Downloading now.

Watched one of the videos and nostalgia gushed through and put a smile on my face. That's exactly the game i loved before, and will have a chance to, again, today

One thing i remember about this game when i got it was that it was packaged as one of those Yahoo games. I remember buying a CD for my mom (she loved dynomite and luxor) and this game was a part of that bundle.
