Review from William J Greklek III
Absolutely awesome! If you love old school defender then you will love this game. Its basically defender on steroids. Its open ended and the controls work great. The visuals are great and on arcade the game is challenging. Definitely worth the money. No ads and no in game purchases. Ive not had any issues playing. Really good work devs! Thank you!
One of the best shooters period. This is one of the best side shooting games on android. It has a twist that you attack enemies from both sides instead of going foreword like in other side shooters. The music, graphics and gameplay is solid. A game like this should be on a PSP or 3DS but lucky for us its on android. That is how good the quality is. If your a fan of games like R-type you will love this. It works perfect with my blue tooth controller and the customer support is great should you have issues. This is an awesome game and high quality.
Jaw dropping Awsome... Worthy to be placed next to Gradius, Thunder Force, and all other AAA shmups. If you find something to complain about , you have issues. Touch screen controls are spot on and prove games like this can be pulled of with out a control pad. Music is Amazing. SOUNDS like Amiga500 music on steroids. The thought that these guys working on their next game is glorious news!!! Can't wait!!
Felt very old school I know I'm repeating what everyone else had said, but it's nice to play a game that's no grindfest and a homage to shooters of old such as Defender. While the controls felt loose they were still responsive and the game nearly matches the Steam version graphically. A great game that I bought twice! My only request to the devs is a loveletter to either Battle Squadron or Thunder Force 4! :)
Refreshing change from the norm.. I've been playing computer games since the early 80's. Every so often, a game comes along from nowhere and shakes the industry. This is one of them IMHO! Its easy to get into (no long video cut scenes to endure), controls are intuitive and gameplay is smooth and satisfying. The musical score is one of the best I've heard in recent years. Nostalgically, its a mix of some of the great classic scrolling arcade shooters like Defender, Vanguard and R-Type. Well done and thank you devs!
I'm not sure why but the controls don't feel super tight all the time. Maybe it's a bit of lag, running this on an S7. That being said I absolutely love this game! I'm always glad to find a highly playable arcade game that is this solid, on mobile. Bumped the difficulty to arcade from the getgo and died midway on stage 6. It was a decent challenge, well balanced, good variety. However, the game does not seem to connect to the leaderboards, which makes me kinda sad. Anyways great game.
Good side-scroller The joystick setting "mobile" should be default. And there's a crash bug still to be fixed. But overall it's a great game. I love a good side-scroller. The default joystick setting makes it hard to hover in one place, and seems twitchy. The "mobile" setting fixes this. The [skip] dialog button is very small. It seems like this was only playtested on a tablet, not phones. I only nit-pick because I'm a developer too. These minor issues don't get in the way of it being a very enjoyable game.
- Fixed: ships were all black on some android devices
- Added MOGA support ! (www.MOGAanywhere.com)
- Added new game option: GAME MODE (normal/turbo)
If you enable TURBO mode, the game will play at the same speed of the PC/Mac version. Only for pro gamers and/or gamers with MOGA controllers :) 25% more speed, 100% more fun!
- Fixed a bug in the last level that could cause a crash
- Better memory management and a new crash reporter
A free addictive space shooter with easy controls & retro 80s arcade gameplay!
Easy to play, Retro Arcade shooting game inspired by the legendary 1978 classic
