Relic creation causes crash

Update: I'm updating my review from 4 stars to 1 due to the relic creation crashes. Soooo tired of the crashes EVERY single time I create a relic. If I could use all of my relic pieces at once to give me a chance at creating a better relic, it wouldn't be such a big deal. As it stands, it takes me over a half an hour just to exhaust all of my relic pieces. Load the game (which takes a pretty long time itself), create a relic, app crashes, open game, wait for game to finish loading again, check if relic created is any good, delete lame relic, create another relic hoping for a good one, crash again, and repeat the process one at a time until all relic pieces are used up. This is maddening, a known issue, and doesn't sound like it's getting fixed any time soon. Multiple ios devices in my home on several different ios versions all having the same issue. I'm done with this game until the relic creation related crashes are addressed.

Difficult & Beautiful! By Highnessty👑👼♿

This game is sometimes difficult & sometimes easy. The artwork & music are beautiful & mesmerizing. The bosses are especially difficult. Abyss Attack is very unique both visually & in gameplay. Highly recommend! Oops. Spoke too soon. I paid ACTUAL $ 2 upgrade 2 always have 2 upgrades then I LOSE them?!?!?!?! SERIOUSLY?!?!?! I have 2 earn more gems 2 get my upgrades back after paying actual REAL $$?!?!?!?! No.

Update: The update was just ok. I like the new stuff but I'm sooo not shelling out more $ or going on FB. The ship is always @ the top of the screen causing me 2 crash & die all the time. I've already shelled out $8 for this game. Please fix.

Update; Finally the game is fixed & the calibration balance is balanced. I have finally earned enough gems 2 beef up my ship & get all the cool xtra upgrades. Now I just gotta beat boss Obscuro... Vey colorful too.
Ok... What's with BUYING relic pieces? Why am I prompted 2 buy 1 32 relic pieces 4 0.99 when I'VE COLLECTED RELIC PIECES WHILST PLAYING. This is stupid & greedy & from what I've read building a relic is way overrated; causes the game 2 crash. Let us build relics with what we've earned please.

Great Game!!

Not too easy, yet not too hard. Extremely well designed w/plenty to earn, yet it's not hard to earn, either. I spent $6 in in App purchases, but have played a lot and definitely got my money's worth!! The graphics and music are hypnotically soothing as well. I play tons of iOS games, and this is a hidden gem. At first it seems too easy, as if the guns are too strong & the enemies too easy to hit. But after some playing u discover Thats not the case, the special equipment u have to earn makes all the difference b/c the guns actually aren't near enough after a bit!!
