Control issues blemish an otherwise good experience

I really want to like this game. The gameplay is right up my alley. However, it has drag to move controls and, unless I’m missing something, there is no way to set it so that movement matches 1:1 with the position of my finger and my ship stays where my finger is. This may not bother everyone, but it renders the game almost entirely unplayable for me. Precise movement is very important, and my brain absolutely refuses to adapt to this control scheme and allow movement to feel tight, predictable, and intuitive.

If I were basing my rating entirely on how much enjoyment I get out of the game it would be 1 star. I just can’t enjoy playing the game at all due this issue. However, that seems pretty unfair to the devs of what otherwise seems to be a great title, and I know this won’t bother everyone, so I settled on a middling 3 stars. I really hope a future update adds a 1:1 movement option, but until then, this game will sadly have to hang out in the ‘not on this iPhone’ section of my purchase history :(


Pretty great

Not usually a big fan of this genre, but this game is awesome. Some of the guns I avoid 99% of the time or even start a run over if I see something awful for my first gun drop. I’d say I put in 10-12 hours before getting the #10 iOS score. It gets progressively harder the farther you go, in a very balanced, good way. Fun-to-learn patterns give this high replay value. If you’re skeptical about the controls, this is also available on Steam, but I rarely had problems with the intuitive touch controls.


Really fun so far...

Should I start out by saying “I never leave reviews, but for this game...”? Umm nah 😝. In short, this game is pretty amazing so far. Old-school mixed with some enticing new weaponry, phenomenal pixel art, and a metal soundtrack? Sign me up! Two super minor complaints and then I’ll shut up. 1) The Arena seems to be just one boss fight and done? A “Boss Rush” mode similar to Beat Hazard would be gosh dang swell. 2) We’re in space. Bullet casings don’t just fall straight down in space I’m pretty sure. C’mon devs 😁. Seriously though very nice work with this!
