Ratings and Reviews
Runs smoothly on my battered old touch 2g, good gameplay, some of the nicest 'dual stick' controls I've come across.
Would have been a 5 star rating, but I'm not convinced it won't get old quickly.
IT'S BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER!
First off, the old leaderboard system was ditched in favor of both OpenFeint and Game Center support for online high score and achievement tracking. The game also now supports multitasking and has received a decent graphical improvement in the explosion and particle effects department. The maximum number of enemies onscreen has also been increased for even more action, and many other minor tweaks and fixes have tightened up the overall experience.
Best of all is that Occurro! is now entirely free to download and play. There are no ads, no in-app purchases, and no plans to increase the price in the future. Acceleroto just wants to put the game out there for people to enjoy and hopefully spread the brand name around for a possible future release. As my mother once taught me, you never look a gift game in the mouth, and for the price of free you should definitely give Occurro! a try if you fancy a solid dual-stick arcade game.
Highly polished and fun!
What a great little game! I like that there are two control schemes, both touch and accelerometer. I seemed to be much better at the game using touch control, so give both modes a try to see what fits you best. The attention to detail is high in this game, which shows a level of care that is rather rare on the App Store. Great job Acceleroto!
UPDATE: A great game is now even better! Thanks for all the fun new additions, Acceleroto!
