2.0 out of 5 stars Low end of the scale.... January 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Compared to other space shooter games offered by Amazon as the FAOTD (e.g. All My Enemies, Overkill, Meteor Blitz) this game is on the low end of the scale. Just saying that an app is "old-school arcade" is no excuse for lousy graphics and "nothing-new" game play. It reminds me of those apps someone would write when they are just learning to program games on the Android platform. And when is outer space the color blue? With the ships looking more like fish then cruisers, you could rename this app something like "Underwater Blast."

I gave this app 2 stars instead of 1 because it did run OK--it didn't crash and all the buttons work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs a lot of work January 16, 2012
By Bacchus
Verified Purchase
I just can't get into this game. The game needs a lot of work. Your ship just doesn't move smoothly at all and I felt like I had to pay too much attention getting it to move correctly that it interfered with actually playing the game. It is also odd how your ship doesn't fire straight. As you move up the screen you shoot at a downward angle and as you move down you shoot at an upward angle. This makes shooting the objects at the top or bottom of the screen unnecessarily difficult. There are power ups for your ship but they don't add much to the gameplay as they are used up so quickly. The graphics are also very basic and quite honestly not nice to look at.

There is a good foundation here for a game that could one day be fun. The developer just needs to work on the controls and gameplay. It could also use a graphics upgrade. For free it is worth trying out but as a paid app I cannot recommend anyone downloading it.

I mean, for what it does, it does well. It leaves something to be desired but it's kinda fast paced and the music is kinda cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great January 16, 2012
By Keith
Verified Purchase
I got it for free, so I'm not gonna complain but it is a rather low quality game. I think that I've made some games on the computer with my own artwork in MS Paint that could rival this game. It's an interesting concept though, if it got better graphics and maybe made a bit more interesting and fun it would be a really good game.

2.0 out of 5 stars bad interface January 16, 2012
By E. Aine
Verified Purchase
The games looks fun and moving the ship is fluid. But as soon as I tried to shoot with the other finger, the game loses track of the ship. The ship is all over the screen. Unplayable.
