A Simplistic Triumph
My, my what a tremendously great app! While admittedly simplistic, this game is profoundly enjoyable. The game is at a perfect difficulty level, being neither ridiculously challenging nor mind-numbingly easy. This game will appeal to most. The saucer and the turret is pretty retro, hearkening back to the days of vintage video-gaming. The moving clouds are a nice background, making a more vivid sky. In all, the aesthetic of this is nice. It is worth noting that this app up converts to the iPad well: no blockiness. It is marvellous that in it's simplicity, it utterly triumphs over more complex games in fun and replay value.
As another reviewer has said, I look forward to Mr. Schrage's future applications. May they have the fun and retro aesthetic visibly present here. I have a feeling that success lies in your future since you have channeled an undeniable force through this app that big developers do not have a monopoly over: fun.
This game is absolutely tremendous. In my humble opinion, it is the best game to hit the app store since Angry Birds in 2009. I love this game and have spent many hours playing it with my friends and grandmother (she just can't get enough of it). I await the release of Mr. Schrage's future iPhone apps with great eagerness. Thank you for providing so many great and fun-filled hours.
It's a pretty good app, but I wouldn't change it's price how it is. It reminds me of space invaders, more elements like said game may be sufficient to raise the price so the developer can eat.
