  • Come back, Devs! Jul 13, 2019

    By boy.creature
    TL;DR: I want the developers to pay attention to this game again and update it and fix some bugs. I’ve been playing this game since I got my first iPhone (an iPhone 5), and I love it! I just wish the devs would come back to it and update it. There’s only a few bugs, which I’m sure they could invest some time into tackling. Whenever I complete the bounty missions or the raid missions, I have to close the app entirely and re-open it, just to refresh the missions so they show up again. Also, it would make sense that the further in the game you are, the better gear you are awarded.

    Very fun once you get a decent ship and some items. My first suggestion is to make a cores to credits conversion, so that after you buy all of the core ships you can still use the cores for something. My second suggestion is to add more ships! After you get the core ships, anvindr, and the raikou (core ships plus 35 credit ships), the other ones are underwhelming. In other words add more late game stuff. Just a general note, regular crates are almost entirely useless, even in very late stages. The only usable accessories in the regular crates are the guns that give a chance for regular bullets to stun, which you then pair with a ship like the Akama for stun locks. It would be cool to make credits and regular crates a little more relevant.

    There are some ads between missions. But the game is pretty generous about giving you bonus coins if you watch the first ad after completing a mission when you first load the game each time. I spent a lot of time to saving up my coins so I could buy d-35 coin ship, which has been an amazing piece of equipment. Don't worry about getting any of the other ships. I'm in the mid-70s level right now, have not spent a dime on the game.

    This is one of my favorite games, the pacing is fine, the story still has my attention on sector 61, and despite being so small, the ships are sick. My only complaint is that this game hasn’t been updated in two years, but does it honestly need it? Refreshing the app to get the bounty and cargo missions nets you really quick loot and like every 10th run you get a secret item. Combine them with a ship like the mantis and you’re un-killable.

    Reminds me of Sky Force Reloaded, although it's pretty different, and the story's actually pretty engaging. Unfortunately, as thing's get harder, the pacing suffers, but that's not enough to give it a bad score. EDIT: So I’ve noticed a “bug” perhaps. When you exit out of the game and come back in, the bounty, cargo, and raid missions are all instantly generated. This definitely makes it easier to accrue things, but...I have to wonder...is it TOO easy...?

    Some of the best visual and sound effects of any shmup I've played. Tons of ships with their own unique stats and weapons plus a myriad of cool items make it an awesome RPG based shmup. This game also has the most detailed story line plus the campaign is so long and challenging which gives it long replay value. I started playing this 2 years ago and it has never grown old. I believe this is definitely one of the most underappreciated mobile shmups.
  • How to still enjoy Jan 21, 2019

    People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.

    I’ve played this game off and on for about 3 years. I’m currently on level/world 32. If you can beat the bounty and cargo missions consistently you’ll be ok, But around world 20 is when the gear starts getting harder to get. I’d spend days trying to get better gear of the cargo missions before moving on to the next world.

    This is one of this most challenging space shooting game I’ve played. It’s very fast paced, and CHALLENGING. But it has one flaw, the way to get credit is very hard. I know that you are able to watch an ad for extra credit, but those come very rarely. Overall, very amazing game, very challenging too, but credit is hard to come by.

    This game is amazing, great graphics, great story and amazing loot. My type of game. But there are some major flaws like after I complete or fail a mission, I always get a black screen. I also see some major AI balance that needs fixing, enemies are a bit hard to beat. Please fix some of these issues.

  • Could be a great game but, Oct 26, 2017

    By _Sir Cool_
    It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.

    This could be a seriously awesome game with a few tweaks, but as it is right now, I'm finding it very difficult to play this game. The idea is good, just not well executed. What I'd like to see the devs do is: 1. Make the freaking ship LARGER!!! You can barely see it on the screen. 2. Change the color of the ship so it doesn't blend in with the background. 3. Keep that darned screen still! It's movement is making me air sick. 4. Make it co-op capable, so friends can team up to play.
  • Still sad Oct 29, 2017

    By Guy65746
    I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.

    I would give the game a 4 star because of the awesome but repetitive graphics, gameplay and enemies. However, the story is 5 star amazing up to the end, when you get a giant slap in the face and a bug prevents you from ever seeing the final cutscene. This is a bug that's been around for years, and doesn't seem to have been fixed. Don't waste your time with this game, the story is the only great thing but you won't get to see how it ends after 600 levels.

    Pretty mediocre shooter that seems to repeat the same few levels over and over. I found out a way to cheat by duplicating epic and legendary weapons which entertained me for a bit longer, but even that got boring. This game has been abandoned by the devs for years now. Whoever wrote the stupid "story" dialogue in this game should be ashamed of themselves. It's so awful. Complete drivel.

    First off, when you play a level, I really think you should be able to keep your coins even when you die. Secondly, I really think that you should increase the amount of coins you recieve. Amongst a few other things. But I do dig the story lines and the little diverse things like weaponry and side missions.

    By Greg Wagner
    Terrible and very lacking ending. Almost 600 missions leading to nothing.....Gameplay is pretty good, it does get repetative with that many missions lol. Storyline kept me interested until the end.......... Good ship selection, gotta work for the good ones. You do not need to spend a dime to get best of the best. Full complete stand alone game here except for the ending..
  • Oct 29, 2019

    By Tim Dean
    Would have clocked an easy 4 stars for gameplay, except for the fact that the game seems to crash after I skip ads before they're finished. Seems like a scummy design move, and makes the game a less enjoyable overall experience.
  • Pay to Win Jun 8, 2021

    By Herp la derp
    Difficulty ramps up significantly within the beginning of the game (20 to 30mins), and as a result you will have to replay levels to grind for in game currency to upgrade your weapons or take the risk of paying for a lootcrate drop with 100 credits and getting a useless weapon/mod anyway. I’ve played this game since the iPhone 4S came out, I enjoy it time to time but the pay to win aspect makes it hard for me to WANT to play for more than a little.

    useless. chaotic. too much fire/missiles. hard to focus on movement etc. intentionally overly difficult to trigger ad options. pure cash grab game. story/dialogue is garbage. too bad, because the art department did it's job, and visually the game is very good.

    By Ur-Procyon
    One of the best shoot'em up games available today. It has everything a proper space drama fan could ask for. Modern yet classical UI, nostalgia inducing pixel designs, heart-pumping physics engine, engaging characters and storyline, great variety of ships and upgrades that prevents the game from becoming stale... It's magnificent.

  • Great game + graphics Nov 10, 2017

    By CoruscantII
    Graphics in this game are amazing and gameplay is really fun too, especially in higher levels, however I didn't really like the story mode or campaign part. Mostly kept going back through levels after I had completed the campaign, as that's what is more fun in my opinion..

  • Very unique. Great for those who are good at shooters Oct 13, 2014

    By Sscurry33
    This is one of the best top down shooters for the ios besides space invaders infinity gene. I love the unique style of this game as it combines a shooter with an rpg styled upgrade system. The graphics are nice too look at but can make it hard to tell whats going on at times. The added relative controls offer a better feel to the game and allow you to see the fighter instead of being covered by your thumb. The game can get frustrating at times, mainly at bosses that seem to be a little over powered. The game never manages to get too hard as over time you'll find better items, upgrade those items, and get better at dodging enemy fire. One specific feature I like and hope to be expanded upon is the surprise assistance from other players fighters. This not only makes the game more fun but gives a good reason to play as often as possible especially if you're stuck on a boss or level. I hope that a full multiplayer section will be made sooner or later, that would really make the game fun. The music is decent, I do like how the games music follows a main theme and fades into variations over time, It would be nice to have more themes that the game can use with the main theme during different sections and levels. I'd recommend this game to anyone who is in search of a new top down shooter to play. I know I'm happy with what I found.
  • Absolutely love it, plenty of room for improvements Sep 8, 2014

    By LozzaPowuh
    Gonna make this quick- the game is awesome, looks great, I haven't had any noticeable bugs as of writing this. This game has a lot potential, but it's still unpolished; black market stuff costs way too much (should be 1 credit, since it would mean an item per sector completed, instead of having it cost a dollar each), plasma weapons need to be toned down in damage, bosses need to have more designs, ships need to have personal upgrades (like upgrading the basic gun to have more shots, higher ROF, more speed, which would show on the ship so they would also be visible upgrades) there needs to be higher amounts of money gained from higher levels (I still earn roughly the same as I did in level 1 in level 7), there needs to be ships that can be bought with gems and you also need to be able to try their weapons and abilities out, there needs to be a shop for weapons and gear, items should have different upgrade paths, ships should be customizable, there needs to be a difficulty marker for each level, levels need to have a progress bar, missiles need to be destructible projectiles, and finally, give us different types of lasers like emp and plasma. If you read all of this you're a champ.
  • How to still enjoy Jan 21, 2019

    By glevan98
    People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.

    The game is difficult. It’s not an impossible “you lost a mission so it’s game over” but it is difficult. I would love a function where we can keep our “cargo” from mission until we can open them. It’s annoying to survive through one, only to find out I don’t have the credits or cubes to open the cargo. Good game, worth it if you have patience! -J

    Fun game for the first few levels. Then everything seems to hit a paywall with the boss of 3. Enemies far outrank your power and it gets to where you have to be incredibly good with spider sense or pay for upgrades.

  • Not A True RPG, And That’s Its Fatal Flaw Nov 10, 2017

    By Paradise Imminent
    I had this game once before, but I wanted to try it again, to see if the issues previously discovered had been resolved. In a word: no. The capabilities of your ship are almost completely dependent on the stats attached to the armaments from the crates; if you want a better ship, it will require better loot. You can get crates in a number of ways, but to get the loot FROM the crates, you’ll have to spend the game’s currency - either gems or credits. If you obtain a crate without having the gems or credits to open it, you’ll have to either spend real money to get the amount you need, or abandon the crate, as if any crate not opened is destroyed. Even if you do obtain the loot from the crate, the stats attached are a complete jumble, unless it is rare-grade loot or higher, meaning that the loot you may want to use may not make your ship any more capable to survive. This will mean spending a good amount of time simply grinding for the loot that will have the stats to keep your ship intact for more than a couple of hits. To raise the stats on the loot you get? LOTS of gems; 3,850 of them, to be exact, to get even standard loot to their max level. Without the gem doubler (a in-game purchase), amassing that amount would take longer than it is worth. I have made it to sector 26 for the first time, but the grinding and spending of gems and credits in the hopes that an armament that I want will actually improve my ship, instead of just giving me a desired weapon to use, actually makes the ‘tons of items procedurally generated’ a negative thing; it would be better to simply have a shop that allows to purchase what you want, so you have more control over your ship’s stats/chance of survival, or have a level-up system on your ship itself, so that you have a chance of making it better in between all the crate obtaining/opening. *sigh* I’ve had enough... again. :-(
  • Fun Game with Glaring Flaws Sep 7, 2014

    By TacoGuitarPlayer
    This game is a really fun bullet hell game, but it has some twists thrown in which makes it frustrating. My biggest problems are the controls. They work fine, but since this is a bullet hell game and you use your finger to move around, it can block part of the screen making it hard to dodge. The game has a equipment screen where you can change out 4 pieces of equipment. That's cool and you can adjust to the mission you are about to take on. The problem is that they also increase your stats and need to be upgraded in order to be good, because otherwise you are flying a tin can which can't take a hit from any of the stronger enemies. In order to upgrade you need money, which you get from FINISHING missions. So if you are stuck on a level you can not gain any money and move forward. This means you have to go back to older worlds or do special missions. The problem with that is that those special missions are hard, and if you have one on a world you need to go back to, you are forced to play it in order to go back. This can make you lose a guy and now you have to wait 15 mins to get him back, and with 4 guys good luck grinding the money you need in order to advance. This game is a fun game with an interesting concept, just the mechanics work against each other to the games detriment. Please fix these problems and make this game something to remember in the bullet hell genre.
  • Repetitive. Nov 6, 2015

    By Cloudcompeller
    For anybody to say this is the most unique game they've played would suggest they don't play many/any games. Certainly not the worst, but 60 chapters in and it's still the same. Same fire pattern, ships and background (minus a slight tint every so many chapters).Each chapter is broken into 6 levels with the 3rd always being a gauntlet to survive and the 6th being one of only a few bosses. On top of this repetition, the only way to realistically progress is to save up your "credits" to have a shot at better gear via the black market (or the bonus cargo missions for 1 less credit if you can make it through alive). From what I can tell, the best gear you can get outside of that is green quality. If it's even possible to get better via normal play, the rate is punishingly abysmal which sort of defeats replaying older levels to grind for it. All in all, it's a pretty solid game but it lacks steady or reliable progression. Would have worked better with a leveling system or a different system for gear. As it is, you can be stuck on a level with all 4 slots at level 5 and 50k gems to spend but no improved gear to upgrade and move on. Of course, if you spend money on IAPs you may have no problems but then what's the point if you pay to win.
  • Okay game with lots of potential Sep 8, 2014

    By Helryx
    I love the shooting and dodging aspect of the game and the graphics are really unique. The dialogue is super witty and overall it's pretty fun. However, there's something's that could make it better. First off, it's annoying that if you want to turn on the online settings you have to reset the whole game. Second, whenever you get a cargo box, you should have the option of selling it because 90% of the time I have to ignore a hard earned box. Third, show the ships in the store in action so you can tell what they do, because otherwise you buy one and realize it's actually pretty bad. In addition, why do you have to lose progress in a sector if you start a different one? It's kind of annoying when I wanna earn some money and I have to do all the missions again and again. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to choose what items I get, instead of randomly opening a box, getting a crappy item and wasting a credit. This game has big potential, but it needs work.
  • Could be a great game but, Oct 26, 2017

    By _Sir Cool_
    It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.

    This could be a seriously awesome game with a few tweaks, but as it is right now, I'm finding it very difficult to play this game. The idea is good, just not well executed. What I'd like to see the devs do is: 1. Make the freaking ship LARGER!!! You can barely see it on the screen. 2. Change the color of the ship so it doesn't blend in with the background. 3. Keep that darned screen still! It's movement is making me air sick. 4. Make it co-op capable, so friends can team up to play.
  • Still sad Oct 29, 2017

    By Guy65746
    I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.

    First off, when you play a level, I really think you should be able to keep your coins even when you die. Secondly, I really think that you should increase the amount of coins you recieve. Amongst a few other things. But I do dig the story lines and the little diverse things like weaponry and side missions.

    By Greg Wagner
    Terrible and very lacking ending. Almost 600 missions leading to nothing.....Gameplay is pretty good, it does get repetative with that many missions lol. Storyline kept me interested until the end.......... Good ship selection, gotta work for the good ones. You do not need to spend a dime to get best of the best. Full complete stand alone game here except for the ending..

    Would have clocked an easy 4 stars for gameplay, except for the fact that the game seems to crash after I skip ads before they're finished. Seems like a scummy design move, and makes the game a less enjoyable overall experience.
  • BIG PROBLEM Apr 7, 2019

    By Pig zombie
    On the new iPhone XS Max the game doesn’t fill up the screen and there'sThea black bars at the top and bottom. When you move your ship over them it gets stuck. It completely messes up the game and causes you too die. Please fix.
  • Garbage Nov 13, 2017

    By trapmaster.awebb
    As you progress through the game it becomes more and more buggy. By the seventh level I would die before the first enemy even spawned and lose a life. Utterly terrible game
  • Major Issues, Bugs, Etc. Sep 7, 2014

    By damanky
    First of all, very fun game in it's core essence. But my god, is it truly an incomplete game. Literally NONE of the items, ships, inventory menus work (including the game map). They all render a BLACK BOX. Completely useless - you must click on an item in your inventory to even see what it is. This is definitely a bug, and over site in testing. Your inventory simply does not show any items, and it looks like an empty inventory until you try to check on the "empty" inventory spaces. The ship particles are distracting, as well as the ship placement beneath your thumb. Could use HUGE bug fixes and improvement, if fixed - the game would be a super fun shoot em up space shooter with enjoyable gameplay, but otherwise entirely broken and worthless. Note after playing more; this game is really just monetized for making the dev's money. It's ridiculously hard to beat the second "real" boss, truly took me a week with the 4 lives an hour (or whatever) limit. Honestly, I love hack n slash and shoot em up games, my favorite genre of games to play ... But this game is truly a waste of time. I am disappointed in Armor Games for distributing this. Not worth the download or play-time past 5 minutes.
  • Another update not dealing with the intrinsic issues. Sep 29, 2014

    By noahsam
    I had such high hopes for this game... but after a lengthy wait for a second patch, with promises of dealing with some crippling issues (namely, boss/level progression and ship balance revisions), all we got was a minor interface option (which was admittedly being asked for by many people) and an INCREASE in the already exorbitantly priced upgrade system. A huge disappointment. Things you MUST (and stated) you'd fix: - Re-balance player ship mechanics so that unlockable ships are actually better than the default one. I spent a lot of time (and even some real money) to unlock the Fullbach ship, only to discover that the fire rate and bullet speed are cripplingly slow. -NERF THE 7.6 BOSS. The most definitive example of your gameplay imbalance: the boss fires EMPs faster than the previous stun wears off... once your ship is hit once, you can't shoot again. And I didn't even mention the purple bullet spreads that will destroy you in 2 shots. Not fun. I have been unable to pass this boss EVER, while frequently finishing the previous level at full health. Seriously unbalanced! This game has such great potential! But I'm going to have to quit playing until we get an update of substance.

    I would give the game a 4 star because of the awesome but repetitive graphics, gameplay and enemies. However, the story is 5 star amazing up to the end, when you get a giant slap in the face and a bug prevents you from ever seeing the final cutscene. This is a bug that's been around for years, and doesn't seem to have been fixed. Don't waste your time with this game, the story is the only great thing but you won't get to see how it ends after 600 levels.

    Pretty mediocre shooter that seems to repeat the same few levels over and over. I found out a way to cheat by duplicating epic and legendary weapons which entertained me for a bit longer, but even that got boring. This game has been abandoned by the devs for years now. Whoever wrote the stupid "story" dialogue in this game should be ashamed of themselves. It's so awful. Complete drivel.
  • Pay to Win Jun 8, 2021

    By Herp la derp
    Difficulty ramps up significantly within the beginning of the game (20 to 30mins), and as a result you will have to replay levels to grind for in game currency to upgrade your weapons or take the risk of paying for a lootcrate drop with 100 credits and getting a useless weapon/mod anyway. I’ve played this game since the iPhone 4S came out, I enjoy it time to time but the pay to win aspect makes it hard for me to WANT to play for more than a little.

    useless. chaotic. too much fire/missiles. hard to focus on movement etc. intentionally overly difficult to trigger ad options. pure cash grab game. story/dialogue is garbage. too bad, because the art department did it's job, and visually the game is very good.

    By Justin William
    The Boss ship of 1st Chapter has 2720 HP,while the player's ship starts w/50 HP,and after several waves of enemy swarms has less!Also the enemy Boss Arsenal is incomparable;the player is Totally underpowered!This is NOT entertainment,but rather a take-down/beat-down,and the player is the lucky pinata!!No thanks!
  • Horrible update Oct 4, 2017

    By Jjc1347138
    Most recent update messes everything up. Constantly kicks or back to home screen, watching video to continue doesn't work ever for special missions/rarely for normal levels.
  • Chang it now Sep 16, 2017

    By Carson lujan
    The bosses are to hard and I don't want to lose my progress change it now and the enemy missile do to much damage and are to fast and are hard to make them miss and go of the screen in I'm angry at you now change it
  • Great game though Nov 2, 2017

    By Gaming Guy0239
    This is a great game but sometimes it can be a little to hard and the ads really get on my nerves please remove them so I can have a solid gameplay experience. :)
  • This is nothing but a cash grab Nov 25, 2017

    By Qwerty1976
    This is no more than a mediocre shooter. After 1 hour of play the game goes from easy to near impossible. Your lives are on a timer to manipulate you to spend money on lives. There’s so many better shooters out there that aren’t a cash grab: Phoenix 2 Time locker Sky Force (any version) Infinity gene Plasma sky ... to name a few.
  • Was great, but the update has some problems Sep 9, 2014

    By Gemini Pilot
    I really enjoyed playing this game up until the most recent update (1.0.9, I believe). Everything was great, and more importantly, everything worked. Ever since I've installed the update, the game has been horrendously slow and had some weird moments. One of the most common occurrences is that when I'm fighting a boss or a miniboss, they just fly away and go off screen. I lose a life, and all of my progress through the level. It's kinda frustrating to be at the end of a level and the boss flies away, so all you can do is try to kill yourself with asteroids. I've had to do that a lot recently, and it gets tedious quickly. As for the massive slow down of the game, I have no idea. I just know that it takes my pilot a few seconds to follow my finger, and when he does, he either goes too far or not enough. Sometimes he even moves without my touching the screen! I do enjoy the game, and I'm sorry that I had to write a one star review. It was great, but the recent patch has made it completely unplayable. I'd be happy to come back and change it to five stars and talk about how I enjoy a bullet hell game having a plot and good music, but I need to be able to play it first. Thank you very much for your time, if you've read this far. I hope to see a fix sometime soon.
