Ratings and Reviews

Very intuitive!


Very simple yet elegant game. Perfect for on the go but veritable enough to keep you hooked with upgrades that actually matter!



I normally don't write reviews but after playing this for 2 hours straight I decided to take a break. Absolute perfection!!! If you are a fan of the first BLUE DEFENSE, this is the comback you always wished for against those little red devils. I looked for something anything to improve on and there simply isn't. The developer has thought of everything. From your customizable fleet to your weapons options to multiple gameplay options for continued enjoyment. This is honestly the first app I've played that seemed to go out of their way to throw everything in I would of put myself. I would of paid 10$ for it. You have a devoted fan who will purchase any future additions to the blue planet franchise. Thanx. Marc from Jersey.

Controls a lil wonky


A great follow up to defense, but the controls aren't as accurate as you would want them to be. Trying to change your shooting (minor angles) direction while keeping your ship as stationary as possible is frustratingly hard (using touchscreen mode). By the time it does change direction, it was too wide of an angle change, and you're constantly trying to readjust. I suggest having two parts of the screen for controlling movement and shooting direction, keeping the ship in the middle for visibility. Controls would re-center whenever fingers are placed back onto the screen. This way, when you want to make an instant stop, it's just a matter of tapping. Same concept would apply to accelorometer(sp?) mode. Course, you'd need to replace the reverse shooting power-up. ;)
