Good Game! Just need less loading time to get 5 stars!

My new review after update. The graphics and storyline are good, gameplay is great now (with new/updated control system) just loading times are excessive (for a mobile game) but its probably the limitation of game engine. If you re fan of Metroid and platform games you should have great fun playing this one. Great job developer with this update!


This is the most addictive side-scrolling game I've ever played this year. It reminds of the classic Metroid series. The graphics is good, could be better. The sound effect is great. The control is simple. With the latest update dual sticks control is finally provided. Good work. The loading time is longer than I expected. The gameplay is short. I'm looking forward for more chapters in the future updates. Highly recommended.


I bought into the whole nostalgic "oh, it's just like Metroid" thing. COMPLETE BS!!! What you actually get is a clunky, non-responsive controlled wannabe Metroid game. Like not even 5 minutes into the game I couldn't get my guy to go up a plain set of stairs? A set of stairs for god's sake. And then couldn't get the stupid scanner thingy to turn off. The controls are not only non-responsive, they're poorly mapped & difficult to use. I just have nothing good to say about this game (if you can even call it that). Seriously, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!

After trying the game again with the new update.... SAVE YOUR MONEY, Still Terrible!!!

And BTW, what's up "5 Star" guys? You give a game 5 stars because "you really like the music? Really??? Did you play the same game I did? And other 5 Star guy, are you like CEO of Monster Robot Studios? Seriously, really???
