For those hard-core gamers that bored by slow start; an update is on the way that gets you into the middle of the action...

If you have problems with the game being slow, please let me know the iPhone model & iOS you are using either via an email to or in the comments. As an independent developer I have a limited number of devices to test on. It's been tested on a iPhone 4, 2nd Gen. iPod Touch with iOS 4.1 and an iPhone 3G with iOS 3.1.3. It runs great on the iPhone 4 & iPod Touch; good on iPhone 3G with an occasional slowdown.

Customer Reviews

What a shame.

A cool idea hampered by the most unresponsive controls I've come across to date in the AppStore. Strange that ASCII games developed some 30 years ago were more responsive than this piece of junk. One bullet at a time, and they move so slowly that you pretty much are forced to wait til the invaders get close enough that you can reliably hit them. Shame shame shame. And the nerve, actually charging people for this crap. Thus reinforcing my point that Apple needs some kind of quality assurance for the AppStore.

Slow and unresponsive

Makes me thankful we got past the days of ASCII games. Though I recall those games were more responsive than this one.


This game is okay but it's a little slow. I would still keep it.
