Awesome game

This game is like a classic shooter but much better. It's one of those games that has much better gameplay than graphics. I must have gone through 20 games so far in the App Store both paid and free but this was the only one that stood out. I am up to wave 7 and so far have not experienced any ads or anything crazy. Hopefully it will get better from here on out but so far this game is awesome. It's simple yet fun to play. If your looking for something better than the old classic arcade shooters than this is it! I hear that at some point they will ask me to pay 1.99 for an extra 50 levels but to be honest I really don't mind supporting the developers for this game because it's worth it. I would pay $5.00 for a game like this. What could make the game better is having huge boss battles. I like big bosses that are interesting and take a long time to shoot down but regardless this is a great game. Keep up the good work!

Great game.. Until


It's great up until wave 46 where they have just given you a new shield special, and let you test it out in a complete bullet hell, the only issue is if you have reflective bullets it's literally impossible to do any damage and you basically just wait to die, over and over and over. I even went and payed .99¢ for some in game currency to try and beat that level by quickly switching between specials and it's not possible. So now I'm completely stuck and have to start over and not buy reflective bullets, witch may I point out don't reflect they just delete your bullet and the enemy's. Complete waste of .99¢ because of a game crippling bug.

Awesome Game!!!

Love this game, it's very addicting! I started playing it 2 days ago and I have already passed all 50 levels without having to spend any real money!!! The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it only goes up to level 50, and then you have to pay $1.99 for additional levels!! 😩😩 But other than that I personally love it and can't stop playing it!!! 😃
