⚡️Nostalgic but the ads,,,,

Love the nostalgia and odd realistic feel from this game but the ads on the start screen are a little much considering there’s also ads whenever you die in game after a while. Other than that, it’s a good game and I would definitely recommend it if anyone I knew liked this kind of stuff 🎮

Ah, used to play this in the arcade back in the day. This is a great game, and nearly identical to the original. The only thing that could make this classic better, would be to upgrade the control of the ship from left/right arrows to touch control like nearly all modern iOS SHMUPS. With that said, the gameplay is simple to learn, hard to master, and a blast to play. The frustration level decreases as you master the game. The Devs have provided an excellent options menu, but I don’t see auto fire there yet. I know this has been around for awhile, but I’d really appreciate an update for that. Thanks! (Also, the paid version deletes the ads.)

Top Notch Retro Shooter

Being old enough to remember the heyday of arcade games I really appreciate the resurgence of old school games on the iPad, it’s the perfect format in terms of screen size and aspect ratio for this type of game.
Difficulty level does rise quickly but I found that it rewards repeated playing and the player learns how to tackle the various enemies in different ways.
All in all it’s well worth anyone’s time time to master and I found it a perfect game to dive into. Kudos to the developer, much appreciated
