Great idea,poorly executed. 2/5
Game has the potential to be incredible but the gameplay needs a rework. The grind to get upgrades just for them to feel so useless, you feel like you just wasted your time playing. On top of that the upgrades to the gun itself are so poorly thought out it will leave you dumbfounded. For instance you upgrade the fire rate of your machine gun which by doing so increases the rate it produces heat. But then that requires you to upgrade the cooling system, which does nothing. The game itself punishes you for upgrading the fire rate that by the 3rd upgrade for the fire rate and cooling it overheats within seconds. So by the 3rd level your gun just overheats rapidly and not upgrading it will just leave you overwhelmed and game over. Now the worst part is how it handles bullets you need to buy each round individually for each special round such as Armor piercing and explosive rounds even grenades. The game requires you to use a ridiculous amount of upgrade points to buy 1 round for those special bullets instead of just making them permanent and letting you just obliterate aliens. But no the game pretty much just prefers you to grind for everything even bullets. I would highly recommend waiting this one out till some future update actually makes this fun. But until then, avoid otherwise.
Horrible game 1/5
By Lloyd suh
Waste of frekin money. I paid 2 dollars for this crap?!?!!! The controls are difficult and it’s boring
This game is ok I guess. It certainly has its moments, but the game suffers from not allowing the player to replay previous missions and waves. Also I’ve found the controls (even the menu controls) to be very counter-intuitive. I just feel like this game could have been a lot more fun if it weren’t so limited.
Let them come 1/5
To small. To dark. Up n down aim and trigger. Have fun. Refund please.
Fix the crash 2/5
By Bad games.....
Crashes on level 2 boss after you beat the octopus
Great Job, but... 4/5
This is a wonderful game, well worth the money. Exactly what I’d expect from something of this genre, and the gameplay is well driven. Here’s the but... The problem is, the game needs more upgrades, and the menu that shows new notes and whatnot needs to be calibrated. Aside from that, the game is excellent, the art style and fighting is great. It just needs to be updated.
Great game. But. 4/5
I love the game. Really quick but hard and I love the ability to fight the bosses again.
Having a massive problem with the “intel” redownloaded the game twice and I can’t read the intel at all. It just bugs back and forth and won’t let me read anything. It’s annoying me so much I’m actually getting angry because I want the small story.
Fun, intense shooter 4/5
This game is a lot of fun and really feels like a game I would love to play at the arcade (if one still existed in my area). The music adds to the intensity as well. Honestly the main feature I wish this app had was mfi controller support, that way I wouldn't have to worry about my thumbs blocking the screen and could focus on the horde of monsters.
By Justin A taylor
One of the worst games on the App Store! Played for 30 mins and the only fun I had was deleting the app.
Half and half 3/5
By Alla Akbar (not the real)
This game has such great potential but 10 minutes in I can already obtain end game items and I feel like they really didn’t want to make the game have purchases but that would have been a LEGENDARY opportunity to add infinite annoying for 1-5 dollars cause it would make the game a lot easier because with the ammo it’s a trade off because only using upgraded ammo limits the money you get but also sometimes you don’t make as much as you spend which is why I dislike the idea of not having this paid feature and plus some of the weapon upgrades like charge shot and cluster shot are underpowered...
Thank you for your time!
Really good, couple of rough edges 4/5
This is a blast. There’s a couple nits though: please please can the hit box on the weapons be larger. PLEASE. I fail waves because melee weapons are useless, it’s darn near impossible to hit the button in time. Second, the voice acting on a couple of line reads sounds like David Cross as Tobias Fünke. It’s just weird.
This is a really fun game to play while idle.
Bland and repetitive 1/5
I played for like an hour and got bored not worth 2 dollars if it was free it would get a 5 it was 1 dollar a 3
Fun... but Limby 4/5
By Ayden Grauer
Limby honestly took away from the game, the hectic shooting throughout waves is so much fun, but Limby requires a really fast click and a lot of luck, other than Limby it’s so much fun
A really good shoot them up 5/5
One of the best pixel games I’ve ever played
Amazing game but a little too hard 4/5
By ITALIA cat
I have only had this game for a couple days and I love it but I’m stuck at one of the levels it is just really hard but it’s fun and one of the good things about hard games is when you accomplish something it makes you feel really good so I see that if stuff like this doesn’t upset you I say it’s amazing and you should get it. a small thing that makes this game that better is that the music in the game actually comes from a boom box nothing big but I just like and I thought I would point out.
Great Game, but.... 4/5
By The Italian Wedge
I absolutely love this game. Only problem I have is the fact that the boom box doesn’t work anymore, and that the melee is pretty odd. Besides that, its a great game. I’ll give this a 5 Star if the boom box gets fixed.
Fun but has some bugs 4/5
By Biogear 9808
The game is enjoyable for the most part.
The blue tab below the shop tab above the monster info tab is a bit glitchy. When I try to read or listen to tapes and notes it jumps to the next page like I hit the next button.
Over all the main part works just fine.
Work on making the game crash less on the second boss 4/5
By PLS add blank
If been working on getting the second boss but the game crashes when I'm in mid fight or when I finish the fight and it goes to the cut seen of it getting destroyed. Hopefully the developer team could resolve this issue because other than that this game has some pretty good potential for a fun slightly challenging arcade nonstop shooter.
Lots of fun 5/5
Great animation work. Game is fun and lasts a couple of hours. Saw some people complaining it’s too short. There is good value at a dollar an hour plus an arena mode. I’m sure there will be updates if it sells well. In its current state it is worth the price.
By Snow Leopard117
- Hold out survival gameplay (if you liked the old flash games Last Stand, Defend the House, Kill All Bunnies, etc. you'll love this game)
- Hardcore strategy and gameplay (if you're a fan of roguelike dungeon crawlers with fast and fun gameplay, character growth and upgrades, and some pretty cool lore then you'll like this game)
- Amazing music, (the game gives you mix tapes through the levels and allows you to custom the tracks that come on, honestly the game gets a star simply for the beautiful music)
- No in-app purchases, (no sellouts here)
- Only problems I have are in the UI, issues like buttons not registering cause the hit boxes are small, not being to hit some enemies close cause you can't aim that high (need to use different melee choices I assume), not being to read the lore messages you receive cause the system bugs out and keeps switching pages - if the UI gets some updates this game is an easy 5 star
Overall: Beautiful gritty gameplay, amazing music, fun strategy and upgrades, and just a few release bugs that'll probably be fixed soon - don't let these people complaining about the first boss get to you took me probably 6 tries (a matter of 30 minutes) to get the pattern down and master him, so many options to choose from to deal with the bosses cause of the load of upgrades you're given access to. Hint: Explosive rounds OP happy bug hunting boys
Not terribly engaging 3/5
Really easy to die. Nicely animated. Got a very definite Aliens (the movie) vibe. About 5 minutes in with some upgrades and still only lasting 20-30 seconds per wave - had to ask myself why I was still playing it. So stopped. Always appreciate no micro transactions, extra star just for that, but I don’t know... something’s missing here.
The visuals are fantastically well done, the sound and music are top notch, and the eery dark environments with occasional light and hectic alien killing all adds up to one of the most fun experiences I’ve had on mobile in awhile. I didn’t think I’d like it this much but it’s quite good. The unlock and upgrade system is very well done, allowing you to return items and unlocks (thus locking the item again), basically re-spec’ing your characters abilities, and gives you the cash you spent back, so you can spend it somewhere else. I love the items received after losing consecutive rounds that give you a boost next game...the drone is my best friend. The combo meter that maxes out gives you a chance at a permanent upgrade for the duration of the run (like life leech, which is literally a life saver). And the little back story from tapes and disks (dating myself here, but like the old floppy disks from the ‘80s) is awesome (Limby!!) I can’t speak for the previous review about whether it’s too short or not but really, for $2 you will get more than your $$ worth. This is a must own and will be a cult classic! 👍🏻👍🏻
Not good on iPhone X 3/5
Sliding the aim bar up and down is a nightmare for me. It is unresponsive and doesn't seem to track my finger. I'd prefer if I didn't have to only slide my finger on that bar only. Also disappointed it doesn't use more of the screen.
Soo bad 2/5
By Baby stuck in a toilet
One of the worst $2 I have ever spent
Was enjoying it up until the first boss fight where it seems I’ve progressed to quickly and then just had a metal walled placed in front of me.. Standard rounds have little to no effect on the first boss and I don’t have much of a ability to buy armor-piercing rounds when the score gain on this portion is so low especially when you’re stuck on it.
If I had a way to just go back to be able to build up points again I’d re-rate this game. Of course there’s still some problems like melee being a little finicky and hosts just shooting me right when they spawn.
Note: Beat the game just a few hours later.. charged shot with any special ammo makes the game a joke honestly. Bosses have patterns but theirs not much to learning them when you can just rush through their health bar.
Did not like it 1/5
Needs more work.
Let me tell you something 3/5
(The problems begin at the bottom)
This game isn’t for the weak hearted, the people who want to play something on break, kids who don’t know death. this game is by far the most intense gorifed shooter on the App Store it’s art and design are amazing, and it’s music makes it that much more “exhilarating”. I never leave such reviews on games, they never lead me to do such a thing. this game reminds me of dead space and as I’m not a person who loves a super deathly visuals, if It’s good, i keep coming back. anyways this game really caught my eye and I loved it enjoyed and over played it hahaha, anyways there’s always a but and here it is.
The game was short, very short, I beat it in 2 hours most likely less, I wish to see a part two, also for paying 1.99$ I kinda don’t think it was very worth it, i loved the art but the game again, very short, just my opinion, the “arena” mode is pretty dull too, maybe more money or chances to go back to get new things so people can last longer, I don’t know but as I said 1.99$ for me to delete it in less than two hours is alittle disappointing anyway thanks guys
Pro Tip 4/5
For thoes of you stuck on the first boss, Charge shot and piercing rounds do the job real quick!
Buggy but fun 4/5
So, I’ll start by saying that this game has tons of potential. It’s a pretty decent concept which is simple, yet engaging. The lack of micro transactions is a huge plus. (That actually earned an extra star in and of itself.) The downside is that numerous bugs keep popping up (pun slightly intended) that detract from the overall experience as well as get you killed in-game. Nothing is game breaking that I’ve discovered yet. I’ve seen others that complain they can’t get past the first boss, but the bosses have strategies, and patterns that you have to learn in order to do real damage and protect yourself.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
The games just came out, so bugs are to be expected. I look forward to when the devs address the bug issues and increase my enjoyment of this game even more.
Good game but needs improvements 4/5
By The angry muffin
Dear Developers,the game is balanced and fun but the option to sell the item you bought and buy it again is annoying.please remove that.moreover I would like to say that the knife which you get at the beginning of the game after you buy it you also have the option to sell it and buy again.but it is a very good game and with some new updates and improvements and bug fixes this game has a chance to be the best retro arcade shooting game.and also the exit game button does not work.pls fix those and I’ll change my star rating to five stars
Boss 1=game over, man! 3/5
By All good screen names are taken
Can’t go back and get more coins to purchase the necessary equipment to kill the first boss? Stinks. I was enjoying it till then.
Fun but buggy 4/5
Good arcade style game. They could have easily made another unending game where you just grind for more and more stuff. Instead they gave us level progression and lore and strategy. Great!
Unfortunately it has come with some bugs though. Nothing game ending but annoying nonetheless. Like I first bought the game on my phone where the audio just never worked. Moved to my iPad where the audio worked but various controls in the inventory panel seemed to have the wrong actions on them. Little but obvious things like that.
Doesn’t hurt the actual gameplay but it does take away from the overall experience.
Really hard 2/5
Cool concept but really hard!
Not support for iPhone X 1/5
By BB Mark
Bugs on gun control
Not support for iPhone X
Ok game 3/5
By Gamer tech 3618
The game play is easy, but the gun control lever should be made easier to maneuver up and down to quickly destroy enemies on the floor and on the ceiling.
However my biggest disappointment is over having the main character smoke, why in the world would you promote smoking? It’s not the best thing in the world to do and it destroys your health, especially teens who will probably be playing this game.
Please change the character by having him not smoke.
Thank you for reading.
