Stuck on fourth lvl

Catastrophic haha

Well first of all this game is so wonderfully difficult probably the most difficult game I’ve ever played in my life. So I’m willing to share some brotherly slang to those out there who don’t understand what’s going on. “F***k!!!” means that I didn’t accomplish what I wanted. “What in the hell?!!!!!!!!” means I have no idea what hit me. “S**t!!!!!” means I missed a power up. “Are you freakin serious right now!!!!!!!!!” means I fought one of the bosses and died.

Best horizontal shmup on the App Store

Retro486

While RaidenLegacy is the best vertical this is the best horizontal for all the same reasons. No ads, great control, instant respawn. Worth every penny. Don’t waste your time with all the other in app purchase laden garbage.

So good

indieGamerX

One of the best old Japanese arcade games available on App Store. Would pay for it even if costs $4.99.
