^I dont see any "vsticks" so i hope it is relative touch. God forbid if this is tilt-controlled.

70 missions on a $1 game is a pretty good trade though.

I think after me blabbering on and on in the Sine Mora thread only to have people not take my word for it, I won't post impressions about this. :3

Quick first impression: Lovely. It isn't a shmup, so let's get that out of the way. Think a high-scoring "avoidance" game like Doodle Jump, with tilt controls () that are fantastic. It's got a mission system like any "freemium" game, with a chance to "save" your runs by spending souls...but the catch is that are no IAPs. Just hit the first boss, and I can't wait to see where this game goes. It's awesome.





Oh, and there are "tap on either side of your screen to go left or right" touch controls.

Did a quick TOFT. And only played five minutes.

It is tilt or a control scheme where you hit either right side of the screen or left side to steer to the sides. The hero stays at the bottom of the screen and will switch between running and flying. It feels more like an endless runner than a shoot 'm up. Though it has shooter elements.

I do think the sprites are a bit too big, it feels cramped. Not a bad game so far though.

Thanks, this sounds like my type of game. Bought

There's an IAP "soul buying" system that seems to be implemented, but not working. Expect this to have IAPs soon.

Who knows. The game's generous though.

Oh, and yeah...of course it feels cramped Leegames...there's a "Vision" upgrade.

Liking it a lot. I don't think it's randomly generated though and there's a story, so I think there'll be an ending. Either way, 70 "missions"...so there's always something to do.
