Awesome, but a shame...


I was flipping through my games today and decided to give this one another go after sooo long. It could sure use a little TLC after all this time. Flawless little shooter with incredible polish and depth. It feels a little incomplete though, and for a little while it seemed like content updates were coming.. but this game was one of the first I ever downloaded, once-upon-a-time. I still think it's a great game, and 100% deserving of the 5 stars I still give it. I'd just like to see it get the attention it deserves. Obviously a talented game designer/writer/creator/programmer here. Should be a cakewalk to update this gem to fit some of the new screens. And while you're at it (while I'm wishing on a star), make us an IAP add-on. :)

This was once one of my favorite games on the iPhone, with a much older iOS. It was addicting, intuitive, and a challenge.

Now it is just a challenge. Not even gameplay-wise.

It is not worth the price you pay to purchase it, because it does not work on the newer iOS. You can try to change settings for controls, but the app will freeze as soon as you tap one thing, forcing you to restart the application.

You literally cannot access shops. You may view the different ones, but you can't actually see what they have to offer.

The default controls aren't easy to play with, and the ones that are best are the ones that force you to reset because it freezes when you select them.

A great game has died, because the developers will not update, and has become a waste of money.

I would ask for a refund, but it simply won't happen because the developers either don't care, or are unwilling, or simply gone.

I do not recommend this game until it has finally been updated to iOS 8.


i or me

I am triple totally amazed at the epicocity of this app! Pure awsomeness. Extremely fun gameplay. Awesome ships, modules, abilities, satellites, enemies, bosses, levels, and names. Already *************************stars, but with a level editor, more equipment and ships it would be ***************************************************stars. I haven't seen content updates yet, though. Oh, by the way, it says I already beat "Carbamaldehyde".
What do all these wierd words mean? Trinitrotoluene? Pentaerithritol? Thiophosgene? Decaborane? I would really like to know.
