Ratings and Reviews
Update: The developer added new controls in addition to the old ones. I like the old ones better so fine by me.
Are you guys talking about the same app I've been playing for the last hour and am loving?!
I don't understand what is so difficult about the controls. It took me maybe 15 seconds to figure out that the ship automatically shoots and that I just have to tilt in the right direction and press the screen to get it to thrust. I actually LIKE the controls because it requires less thinking about where exactly on the screen I am pressing. (Also right now I have a 5-way shot going so sometimes I can just let the ship glide in one direction and just tilt to get it to fire in objects along the way. I really like being able to do this!)
The graphics are pretty sweet, too, and the gameplay is like asteroids on crack. The music is kind of...different, it's got a kind of techie feel (not to be confused with techno but there are some similarities), but you can always turn it off. I like the idea of upgrading the ship and collecting money, too.
Let's hope the controls are improved a bit because this game is loaded with potential. The "tilt-to-aim" scheme does take a minute to get used to but it's really not that bad. Its a shame everyone seems to want the same controls for every game these days just because they don't have the patience to learn something new. The graphics are great and the variety of worlds is really nice. You can tell a lot of work went into this so I really hope the developers stick through the thick and continue to improve the controls by perhaps providing options. Cheers.
Yes the controls take a little getting use to, and yes the menus are a little tough to navigate, but there is nothing Wrong with this game. I would appreciate a few more options and maybe a less cluttered and more aesthetically pleasing menu. But I think that those of you giving this one or two stars haven't given this game enough time.
