Excellent, but with a few rough edges
Firstly I'll say it's great to see another top quality shooter on iOS. This is a very solid game indeed, as you would expect from Suda and Level 5.
That said, there are a few small problems. Firstly there's no screen rotation Secondly, when running on an iPhone 5 (60fps btw) all of the 2D assets are stretched poorly to fit the screen, leading to scruffiness. And finally the UI is super low res (3DS resolution presumably) and looks rather poor.
Still, this is an excellent game all the same and well worth the money.
Suda51 makes a classic
I love this game. It runs flawlessly and looks great. The menus feel a bit low-res (ported from 3DS?) but everything in the actual game is nice and crisp. It's a classic arcade shooter with loads of things to kill and colourful visuals. I think it does that sort of game just right. If that's the sort of game you want I'd definitely recommend this.
Brilliant but needs some work
Game is excellent and I'm really enjoying it, but had it freeze on me first time I played. Seems a bit stretched graphically on iPad
