No IAP Feces, Hooray!

I bought and played this game on my iPod Touch 4 quite a while ago, and it was a blast (pun intended). So when I just bought my new iPad, and I was searching for "space shooters", I stumbled upon this again and knew I had to buy the HD version!

Of course, knowing all app markets and developers are now infected with the greed-filled, corrupt disease known as "In-App Purchases", well the first thing I did when I came upon this game, was scroll down to the very bottom and check to see if the app contains IAP crap. Luckily for this developer, he was smart enough not to ruin this game and include that trash, so I ended up buying the game. But if I had seen even a hint of IAP, I would have run for the hills, never to look back again. Nothing good has ever come from this IAP sickness that has plagued gaming everywhere, and the sooner people realize that once you've bought enough rigged, manipulative IAP crap in an app to enjoy it. Well, you've easily spent more than the app could ever be worth, and you have basically become an ATM for the developer, who can withhold features from you, charge for what should be included as updates, anytime they need some money. It's completely immoral, unethical, evil, and rarely used responsibly. Stop Supporting This Con of A Selling Tactic!!!!

this game does everything right

Where to start? The graphics are amazing, full of color and charm and character. The sound effects are awesome through a good pair of headphones -- every weapon, every hit, every explosion is spot-on and rewards you for blowing stuff up. The controls are tight and responsive once you get past the initial learning curve. The story is funny and entertaining, with well-drawn characters and well-written dialogue.

Best of all? How the devs treat the people who buy this game. There is no additional paywall where you have to shell out for IAP to progress further. There is no constant nagging to share your scores on Facebook, no pop-up ads for their other games during loading screens. There is none of the customer-gouging that is so prevalent in the App Store. They respect the players. For this, and for the fact that the game is great on its own, I would give this app ten stars if I could. Anyone who doesn't buy it is missing out, and that is an understatement.

A must try game!

I'm not a gamer in any sense especially on iPhone/iPad but I got hooked and found it hard to put down. The story line does get a little repetitive and the baddies could have used more variety but overall a fun game with a short learning curve. You will lookup and notice hours have passed.

Price 5 stars, got it free but would be worth original 4.99 price
Gameplay 5, hours of shooting fun, customizable weapons, choose the sector you want to go to next so pick easier one if you need cash or hard if you want to find rare alien items.
Replay value 4, some repetition of gameplay but it does offer 60 trophies you can earn(beat a lvl without moving is on my list though that might take awhile)
Visuals 4, weapons fire could be better not just a pink line though I use the explosion more for kicks than effectiveness.
Storyline 3.5, could use more depth and variety/animation rather than thought bubbles.

Overall a solid 4.0 it!
