Fast paced action game inspired by Robotron, Smash TV, Crimsonland, and Geometry Wars.
"Belowscape is a very fun game that needs no great investment of your time or thought, and aims to provide fulfilling, if simple, fun."
"Control options work very well and in my opinion are the best of their type available on the iPhone/iPod Touch platform. Excellent Control Methods. Sleek, Attractive Look & Style."
-Game Forward 4 out 5
The relentless legions of glowing rectangles, circles, pentagons and more are pursuing a lone ship in the polygonic depths of retrospace.
You're the pilot of that heroic ship. Dodge, thrust and let your pixel blasters send those geometric abominations into the abyss.

I like it, but...and...
Its a great Geo Wars copy. If your a fan of Geo Wars your probably gonna like this to. Its far from perfect but after spending a little time getting used to the controls it becomes easier and easier to execute the circular "run for your life" game style familiar to GW fans. It could use some of the spectacular particle effects that GW has and MUST have wepon upgrades in future updates. But what i would really LOVE for the dev to do, is to make the tumb touch pads move with your thumb, but not the stick itself in relation to the thumb pad. This would help with the anoying thumb migration which makes sterring difficult. I have to go 3 stars because there is no 3 and half. and its not quite a 4. If the dev impliments the features i described above i would give it a solid 5 star. And it would become a app i would be willing to pay 5 dollars for.
This is a nice Geometry Wars-like game. The movement is smooth and solid, and the game offers a way to customize your control scheme. This is a feature that I wish developers would include more often. So, what can improve? For one, I'd like the joysticks to return to center when finger contact is broken. Returning the 'fire' joystick to center should stop the firing. Second, some delicious powerups and bombs and things would be a very welcome addition. I think this app is a worthwhile boredom buster. Check out AppVee's review if you're unsure of buying. Anxiously awaiting the next update!
version 1.10 is awesome. I asked for double joysticks and in 1.10 they are here! finally. Makes playing the game so much fun. Also love the mix of tilt, touch, or joysticks so everyone is happy. Sound FX are a nice bonus and I love the ability to turn "off" motion blur, or leave it on if I prefer. This version 1.10 also fixed my crashing issue which I emailed about. Now 1.10 loads up and plays beautifully. Thanks for the hard work!
