App doesn't always start, but is FUN!

As a fellow developer I really appreciate this game.

There are some bugs however which prevent it from playing properly.

When I load the game from a fresh install the game usually runs for a few seconds after entering a level. And the phrase keep moving appears on the screen basically goes black except for the sprites on screen, and player graphic.

After that -- when starting the app -- the initial level fails to start. I can my the player graphic on screen but no shots are fired, and the timer does not start (stays at 5).

Would be fun if these minor bugs go away. :P

I love it!!! Wow!

Omg!!!! I am completely addicted. I have played it all day! It's a really fantastic game, though I'm not sure what category it is in. I would say it was a puzzle game. Most levels have trick to beating them. Some levels are very challenging, but once you learn the tricks, it's easier to get through the upper levels.

I really love the game. It's very unique in its controls and game play.
Highly recommended to all.

What the hell?!?

I found this game like half an hour ago, and downloaded it. I went to play the first level... and nothing happened. I could not shoot. I held down the right side of the screen, I dragged the thing everywhere, I was patient... and nothing happened. What the hell is this game?!? I was able to shoot once by accident, but then I died. Is it some kind of weird glitch for iPhone 6? I saw that others were having this problem as well... probably going to delete this game. I'll google it first, but probably gonna delete it. Real nice job guys, making the controls super vague. Stupid game.
