Fixed iCade Core button issues!
A great pewpew kinda game, sort of a mix of Galaga and Space Invaders, very fun. The graphics, music and gameplay will please devotees of the 80's arcade experience.
The two things I DON'T like, however, are that there doesn't seem any way to save one's game, and if one is foolish enough to do something else on one's iPhone with a game paused, that game is GONE. Since a game can be pretty lengthy, this seriously compromises it's casual use, which is what makes so many games great. Also, it doesn't look as though there's any way to upgrade weapons or capabilities...and being a "retro" game that really isn't something that's expected, but I did find myself, after several levels, wishing I could change it up some.
There IS an alternate weapon, the Laser, which is very powerful but a little clumsy to get to. Otherwise, the controls are exquisite!
$1.99 seems a little steep for a game this simple, but I'm certainly enjoying it!
TEN STAR GAME
Wow, just a fantastic game! Graphics, gameplay, music, difficulty curve all spot on. This game might be one of the top shooters in the App Store. Old school retro feel, get this baby.
Great game! One thing though if I try to pause going into a battle with a boss the boss does not go to the top of the screen like normal but goes slightly below mid screen. Makes it hard to beat 3rd boss!
