I’m addicted

I really love this game, it reminds me of the old Metroid games. The mechanics and progression is excellent, and the game is great as it is but, I believe there’s always room for improvement. I suggest to perhaps make two separate modes: survival mode, and story mode. Survival mode would work the same way the game works now, while story mode would allow players to save their spot so as to not have to start from the beginning every time they lose. Sometimes playing the same first three sections gets repetitive, which is why I’m suggesting this

Used to be 5 stars:

The game was one of my favorites to play from the App Store until I updated the game yesterday. I went from having zero problems playing the game to experiencing the game slowing down in the second world to a snail’s pace and even the game crashing on me.

I’m assuming this is a missed problem in resource clean up on the coding end for something new that they added in this update as it got a lot worse after multiple play throughs.

When an update comes through that fixes this, I’ll update my review back to a 5 Star.

Beat the game!

Was very addictive and I kept getting better the more I played. Was a good feeling when I finally reached the end. By the way, might take awhile but the shotgun, more enemy upgrade helped a lot
