A classic gets a modern upgrade. Watch out, interstellar insects.

I am so happy about I cloud sync! I can't wait to try it. Not having it was a real problem.

This also will make it easy to fix the space issue. Over time, its cache just grows. Now you can just reinstall the app to fix that. Easy. It's still a problem, but with a makeshift solution.

I guess the only bad thing I can say is that the Xevious and Galaxian ships feel under powered. For instance, the Xevious omni-shots are too slow to effectively kill probes for 👑 coins; the Galaxian's bomb has weak offenses, forcing you to dodge rather than aim. I always start with the Xevious ship so that I can kill it while paired with a better ship.

Second, I just saw that they made a compromise on the high score rewards. I'm actually ok with it as it now is in the hundreds. That may be a fraction of what it was, but this more lives, an opportunity for higher scores is created.

Old Review:

It's a fun game, but killing the high score hurt. I finally fully upgraded the new ship. Not bad. Not perfect, but decent and free. You have to really like the genre to like the game. It takes a minimum of around 45,000 coins to deck it out, but less than 90,000 to insta upgrade everything.

What makes that problem worse is this: it takes up almost a gig of space over time.

Great game except


Like everything about the game and I don’t mind paying for good work, my only grip is takes to long between lives to start the next ship to start going I thought after I purchased a ship it would get rid of that but instead of going into the next life to continue you have to hit 3 different confirmations and after that it does a count down as if your going to fight right where it let off but no it starts a complete level over again, why do I need a count down if it’s just going to clear the screen anyway to start the level over again, count downs our normally used when your going to continue fighting from the very point that you died or paused at, other then that the game is alright.
