Classic shnup with balanced updrade system Oh my, where do I start. I played a very similar game a long time ago on the snes and was looking for an updated, similar game. Then I found SkyForce and really enjoy this game niw. It's a bit different than your usual danmaku games: grazing is particular hard due to your ship's chunky size. Better do a circle around salvos. Also, an upgrade system and collectible cards allow permanent buffs and extra weapons or shield. That also requires some grinding but higher levels give more stars which helps.
Amazing Game After months of playing this game, I can say, without doubt, that this game is absolutely the best of its kind... quite possibly the BEST mobile game, period. This game replicates the old arcade plane shooters perfectly, all while giving the genre a much appreciated makeover with incredible graphics and near infinite replayability. I literally can't say enough good things about it. Just try it out, you won't be disappointed.
This game would be good if... ...There wasn't a limit on how many planes one gets, there wasn't an insane wait time for a plane, there wasn't a limit to how many commercials one could watch in order to get a plane, the game didn't lag out so one dies, one didn't lose star-purchased shields, lasers, and megabombs when one died. Basically this game would be sweet if the devs wanted you to actually play it instead of just trying to con you into making micropurchases every chance they get.
Say goodbye to life.. You will drain your battery by playing this so much. This game is truly superb... we'll done! Mechanics are perfect. UI is stylish, fitting and intuitive. Challenging but still fun. Support this group of talented developers and purchase in app items at a reasonable price. I've recommended it to several friends and they're easily as hooked as I am.
If you look for a nice shmup, you can't go wrong with this one. Very nice visuals and engaging game play. I can really recommend it. However, if you are like me and have no friends that play this game, you cannot enter the tournament. Which is quite a bummer. What is also kind of ruining the game, is the long waiting times for new "charges" to actually play the game. That should not exist. 1 hour to play 1 game and 10 hours for full charges is quite a chore. and no way around other than spending the currency which you need for upgrades.
Still loving it! I've spent more time playing this for the past two years than any other mobile game. Only issue I have with it is there's no way to verify the state of your cloud save. Twice I've switched to a new phone only to lose many many hours of play time. Maybe add a "back up now!" button? Otherwise PERFECT game!
