What's New in Version 1.9.5
Fixed a few bugs triggered by later iOS versions, mostly in Bluetooth & Wifi multiplayer games.
If you haven't at least downloaded and tried this game, you are depriving yourself of The best hidden gem on the App Store. I played this game back when iPhone 4s was newish, and why I didn't get it on my new phone until now is beyond me. The controls are friendly, the gameplay is fast, the game is great. If you don't like it, it's an issue of taste, not the game.
I probably won't ever delete this app!!!
I love this game! It's best mode is on sandbox you can drive any vehicle you see! I would love this game even more if the buildings had windows and when shot at would fall over and hit other buildings and also I can barely see the bullets when I am tapping the black button (hint make them bigger plz!) but over all its an amazing game!!!!!!! 👍
I love just goofing around shooting buildings and flying UFOs! I wish the bullets were more visible and that the missiles would travel longer. Besides that, great game! Not sure I'll ever delete it. :)
