Awesome Retro Style Arcade Game
Having lived through the rise and fall of the electronic arcade era, I can attest with some authority that Saucelifter! would have fit right in during the 1980's as one of the more popular quarter munchers of the day.
You are the hope of your planet as you fly your saucer through enemy territory destroying tanks and mortars in order to rescue hostages from the advancing Earthling scum! Simple gameplay, terrific retro graphics, wonderful sound effects make Saucelifter! an awesome App Store find.
Adjustments can be made in the Options Menu to fine tune your saucer controls. It may take a few trips to find the settings that work best for you. Saucelifter! is fun to play, mildly challenging to learn, but well worth your effort.
Dev's; (1.) Please add an instruction screen explaining why hostages are not always ready to be rescued. (2.) Why is the Alien Transport Zone separate from the Saucer Landing Zone? Making these zones the same would eliminate any confusion. (3.) A "finger control" option to control the saucer would be a welcome addition. If you make these changes, I will have no choice but to upgrade my rating from 4 to 5 stars. : )
Hate the controls
Three stars because I LOVE the retro look of this game, and I like the developer. Have owned this game since it first came out. Keep coming back to see if the controls have improved at all. Unfortunately not. Prefer Chopper 2
Cool game love the sounds. How can i get the other saucers
