Missile command type game.
I think that the game has potential. It's missile command with some repair and upgrade ability, which is a neat concept. A bit fast paced given the interface, and too few credits to do many repairs or upgrades...this should be corrected. I'd recommend waiting for an upgrade before buying.
Revised after trying the update...
A solid, fun game with great graphics. Definitely worth buying! Still a bit hard for my taste; Perhaps the ability to choose an easier mode.
The game is fun, enjoyable, and solid. I've had no crashes or stability issues. The graphics are great. The missile command with upgrades/repairs is a cool concept.
Fun but flawed app.
A real blast from the past game that is fun for little while. Unfortunately after a few minutes of getting the snot kicked out of you it gets tiresome fast! You never get enough credits to really do anything, especially with the constant repairs. I've also noted that "random" asteroids are not random but seem to seek out remaining cities like cruise missile and I think thats unfair. At the very least the dev shod increase credit awards and create difficulty levels. If these items were fixed my rating would increase to 3 or perhaps 4 stara.
Missile Command + Asteroids
A good combination of classic games. It took me a while to learn how to destroy the asteroids... shoot as many rockets as you can at them! The technology tree is an interesting addition.
