Ratings and Reviews

I eat flies

A poor effert...

This was an iOS title, but this OS X port was ill-conceived. The controls are goofy, with the mouse pointer left-clicked down to control the ship. No A,D,S,W here; no arrow keys, just a left-clicked pointer - which means my programable gamepad is no good here because it cannot be set to continually be left-clicked with mouse movement. There are other keys involved, but what they do is unknown. There's no manual to be found online, and result of testing what keys do what is inconsistant; sometimes a responce, sometimes no. I really do not think this game is worth trying to figuare it all out - especially if I am stuck having to hold the left-click down all the time.

Look elsewhere - you'll thank me. The only other reviewer here (to date) must have an uncle that works for the company that made this game. There is no other logical reason to give this game Five out of Five Stars.


Version 1.1.1 like a missle, hits the mark

Update to my prior review. This version allows keyboard control of your fighter which means it also allows gamepad control.
Its a fun game in the genre of classic arcade slider with very nice graphics and smooth action. The new control options are a welcome fix and make this a great value.



For a 2.99$ game, it's entertaining with alot of nice graphics sounds and simple controls..I made 40 waves my first play!!
I'm familiar with this game since it does resemble Darus Twins a lot.
I purchased the mac. version and it runs and plays as it should.

I toggled with the fullscreen option from the mac but I'd still appreciate using the whole monitor as a map.

The customer service is helpful and in summary I'm satisfied and entertained by this game! 2.99$ is a steal!
