APP SPY (Rating: 4/5):
"...for those who consider themselves fans of the shmup genre, this is without a doubt a must buy."
"Anyone who enjoys a nice 2D shooter should grab this one instantly."
WHATSONIPHONE (Rating: 4.5/5):
"rRootage is a classic game faithfully rendered on the iphone"
"rRootage offers much more variety than the typical App Store shoot-’em-up [...]. Shooter fans should definitely check this one out."
"The fact that this gem is available on the App Store is great news."
"If R-Type was too simple for you, or DoDonPachi Resurrection was something you completed with one eye closed while doing one handed pushups, then this is worthy of your time and money."

Control your ship and avoid the barrage. Use the laser to destroy the battleship of the enemy. You can cause more damage if you fire the laser close to the enemy. When all ships are destroyed, the game is over. The ship extends at 200,000 and every 500,000 points.

Essential bullet hell
This game has a huge range of difficulty, from casual to near impossible, all immediately playable. Great if you're a bullet hell veteran, but also a great entry point for people who are intimidated by the genre.
The iOS port does have a few issues. The biggest is that lifting your "joystick" finger while your "ability" finger is down will cause the ship to slide in one direction, often resulting in death. It also lacks an area to place your thumbs, and it is possible to accidentally exit.
Minor issues aside, it's still a great port of an incredible game. Hours of gameplay.
I'm having a lot of fun playing it. The vector graphics look gives the game the retro feel of the original.
Y does it remind it of tohou
