Customer Reviews

Good game, could be better

While I do enjoy the game quite a bit, there's room for improvement. The upgrade system is nice, and the reward of upgrading is pretty good but are some what tainted.

For instance the fact that the Vulcan cannon and the Mass Driver are great upgrades and chew through enemies like crazy is a great pay off, The fact that the sights have no number system so you don't know where the bullets are going to go makes it more luck than skill you get a hit. And it's an easy fix, since the rounds travel at an angle to the sight it's a bit of trig and actually bothering to put up range marks on the sight and the game would become much more satisfying.

Next, While the overall UI is good, the graphics and sound are likewise good, I think the touch and drag method of targeting is a bit clunky. An easy fix would be a left hand thumbstick.

Modern Space Invaders?

Great update. Love the new missions! Keep up the good work!

This game is really fun! I highly recommend it!

The overall game is reminiscent of the classic game Space Invaders but with a much more modern approach.

You start the game in control of a ship with tons of different types of guns, lasers, torpedoes, tracking missiles, etc and your job is defend the star base from waves of alien invaders. As you progress you are able to unlock more powerful weapon levels and the waves get more challenging. I've only made it to the 11th wave at this point but it's really addictive.

Also, I love the overall aesthetic of the game, the graphics have a slick retro 3D style, the interface is simple and easy to use and the narration is great.

Amazing, Exciting & Fun!

Great update, love the new missions! I can't believe how awesome the graphics and sound are in this game! The weapons are cool too. It really has a feeling of infinite space and reminds me of scenes in Star Wars. It's exciting when I lock on a target before they hit me and escape destruction. My score keeps picking up each time I play-prety soon I'll be "The Queen of th Starbase!"
