It's a unique shmuppish/runner-ish hybrid and i think it's pretty good.

Controls... Left side, swipe up and down to move up and down (similar to Dead Ahead). Tapping on the right side moves you forward, letting it go moves you back. I should add you're on a jetpack so the controls will make more sense.

What i like in this game is the arcade nature of it, and the cool action your in for. What i dont like, is that it can get very difficult.

There's a variety of stages with the usual side-scroller, and then there's the bossfight which i havent seen yet, but instead on the screenshots.

Anyways, it's a good pickup for a buck, but i cant give it an easy recommendation.

Paywalls or mandatory IAPs?

Game Impressions

Shame this isn't getting more love on here, especially on a slow week (unless you're into crafting). This is a cool little 2D shooter with awesome hand-drawn animation. Very cartoony, with lots of parallax scrolling. It's really reminiscent of the 16-bit era, but with sharper graphics. The gameplay is tough, but fair, and the levels are bite-sized so the one-hit deaths aren't so crushing. Still, it's pretty hardcore. It's basically a shmup, but with a unique control scheme (which suits it perfectly) and some platforming elements. And no IAPs! This is gonna be on my device for awhile. TA should do a review
