Ratings and Reviews
Stuck on fourth lvl
Well first of all this game is so wonderfully difficult probably the most difficult game I’ve ever played in my life. So I’m willing to share some brotherly slang to those out there who don’t understand what’s going on. “F***k!!!” means that I didn’t accomplish what I wanted. “What in the hell?!!!!!!!!” means I have no idea what hit me. “S**t!!!!!” means I missed a power up. “Are you freakin serious right now!!!!!!!!!” means I fought one of the bosses and died.
Best horizontal shmup on the App Store
While RaidenLegacy is the best vertical this is the best horizontal for all the same reasons. No ads, great control, instant respawn. Worth every penny. Don’t waste your time with all the other in app purchase laden garbage.
Fun but limited
Massive dead zones on either side of the display that could be used for touch navigation makes this game too hard because your finger blocks enemies
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
