Customer Reviews

Finally beat it on normal (tips)

Took an in-app purchase of 3 extra credits and a lot of practice, but that was a satisfying win. Be patient and have fun. Then when you think you can win with extra credits, buy em. It was worth the .99 cents. Great experience.

Boss one is easy once you know his routine. I keep to the left when things get crazy. Easier to dodge.

If you don't care about points, boss 2 can easily be beat by running the clock and looming behind him until he shoots missles.

Boss 3 all I can say is baby steps all around. Resist jumping all over the place.

Boss 4 his first move is aimed at you so time it so you move far away just as he launches those missles. That will ease the pain. I go to the upper left corner when he launches bombs.

Last guy is pretty easy. Stay left when he uses bats. You can dodge easy from there. The rest is just gently dodging bullets.

Great Shmup!

Great shmup with high octane action right from the start. Seems impossible at first, but as you learn to do small, precise dodges and use your specials and bombs often and wisely it gets really fun. I have a few specific gripes about individual moments (boss 4's "fake" bullets come to mind) but overall this game is a blast. The soundtrack is awesome too, and the game includes a music player with unlockable tracks.

Terribly designed, too much clutter

This is a terribly designed shmup. Unlike other, better made bullet hell games, this game FPGAs way too much going on at once. Thimgs constantly pop onto the screen and shoot an insane amount of bullets at once.

The first boss has a laser attack that gives no warning, and will almost always hit you because you need to be right in front of it to actually hit it with your weapon.

Avoid this one. Go buy dodonpachi or something instead.
