Customer Reviews


Ok, first I thought it would be a little flash it's way better! This game obviously takes heavy influence from metroid, especially the intro and ship design :) great idea. And the life form 57 reminds me of X from metroid fusion. The music is amazing, and the controls (although a bit tough) are manageable...5 * keep em coming :)

Maybe good someday

This game definitely has the potential to be good but the controls are lacking in my opinion. They're slow and clumsy at best and having dedicated jump and fire buttons as opposed to what's offered would have been great. I feel out 3 bucks but sometimes taking a chance works out and sometimes the bad reviews are well earned.


This game is,by far, has the worse controls then anything I have tried in the app store so far!

The game is constantly pausing to load, the avatar is sluggish, and the music is annoying with no way I could find to turn it off.

Don't waste your money unless you like trying over and over to make it up stairs.
