Needs better controls
This should be a good game - it looks good, but it plays poorly.
First, sliding the control UP/DOWN to move your spaceship LEFT/RIGHT is just wierd! Mostly I just left the spaceship in one place - which is fine because the second problem is that the aliens are really not much of a threat and the game is not that fast or challenging.
Maybe it gets harder in later levels, but I only tried this free version, and I won't pay for the full game while the controls remain so strange.
I was looking for a good old fashioned asteroids game. This looked good and the idea is good. Even the graphics are really decent. But up is left and down is right, while you shoot with the opposite hand by tapping. Similar to tapping your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time. I'm usually pretty coordinated and do quite well with these type games, but I'm giving up on this one. I do NOT recommend this game.
