It's weird... And great! The controls feel really weird at first since shooters like this usually stick a ship out in front of your thumb, but it's a really cool idea and works really well. Definitely want to see updates... This has untapped potential.

Sweet I'm really picky about touch controls, this game does it right. The gameplay is pretty simple, but looks smooth and clean and easy to understand right away. Plus the nature of the thumb controls introduces some limitations that are interesting rather than frustrating (like how you can shoot straight down, but it's easier to quickly maneuver your ship-thumb to aim at what is below you). Overall, a pretty sweet take on traditional space-shooters using a touch screen.
THIS is how you do touch controls! Instead of just adding a digital pad or making you drag an object, having your hand limit its visibility, your finger is the ship and your finger is what has to avoid all the obstacles and enemy fire. Brilliant idea and excellent execution. Just when i thought touch-based gaming had hit a wall and got stuck in a rut, i find this game. if i were to make a suggestion, it'd be nice to see more colors, at the very least to differentiate enemies from asteroids. That's about it. Great job, devs.
Difficult yet Amazing and Fun This game is addictive and fun. From the start this game provides a challenge. It can be frustrating at times but once u overcome the obstacle you get a feeling of accomplishment. Not a lot of games like this out there.
Meh Ok don't like it that you can't really tell what's going on of you either have a small screen or big hands, your screwed if you have both! No power ups, that would make it feel more old school
Not for me Its too difficult to distinguish what is the enemy, what is stuff you can pick up like weapons etc, and what is background as for some unknown STUPID reason its all black and white! What a stupid idea! Still, it was fun for 30 seconds.
Good game Took me a sec to understand controls. (Your thumbs really are part of the game!) Def recommend. One suggestion: wish you could turn off haptic feedback/vibration. (EDIT: These guys are onto something here, with these new controls. Take the two seconds to figure it out, and you'll be rewarded with excellent gameplay.) Thanks guys!!!
Masterpiece. I didn't ever like a mobile game, but this..this is a masterpiece. I am completely taken by this game. For the first time i liked a mobile game this good. The concept is excellent, graphics are good(i personally liked the black and white tone), gameplay is fantastic, i don't think any game out there make this good use of touch. I would be absolutely delighted to see more superb games like this from this developer.
Hectic! After I worked out that there was no ship to see (that my thumb was the ship) it was all good! Starts fast and goes from there. I'd pay to see it without ads. Excellent time waster.
Bugs? I love this game so much and downloaded it again a few days ago to my new device. However the game keeps resetting my progress so I have to keep it open and that chows my battery. Then, it glitched so that the bosses fly off the map without apparent reason and I'm left flying through space for ages with nobody to fight. It would go on forever but I exit each time after 5-10 min of nothing but space. Please fix this I'm so disappointed :( I love this game
Good game Quite difficult to start of with but gets better as you go. Only issue I have is it doesn't save my progress so I get to the 4th ship and lose so I gotta start all over again, other than that I love it
Addictive Sweet and simple, but challenging. LOVE the music. Finger for ship (release for slow-mo), another for shooting. Best game I've found on android yet.
Nice idea of making my thumb the ship itself. The black-and-white graphics and the soundtrack make a very cool retro style too. I got to be at 7th place in high scores and it made me very happy XD. I'd definitely buy a larger version of this game.
Solid play, great use of touch Like other have said, your thumbs are part of the game - which makes it almost feel like an old-school game for some reason (in a good way). Agree on adding colors to make objects stand out, but otherwise fantastic for getting the user more involved for each run.
Love it! Awesome job! Did have an issue where I couldn't resume playing after a phone call interrupted.
Best game I've played in a long time. Unique gameplay, good music, addicting, free. What more could you ask for?
Great game Love the idea and slow motion, love the black and white theme. It seems like you guns stop upgrading after a certain point. If so i wish it would have more upgrades for the guns.
The only downside is my phone is too big, so I can't dodge across the entire screen at once very easily.
I like the game don't get me wrong The game itself keeps showing up in portrait mode and doesn't show up in landscape mode and I just really wanna play this game without the problems please & thank you :D
Absolutely entertaining and a must have This game is a unique arcade action game and truly a standout form the crowd in today's android games. Small and simple yet so engaging and dynamic. Worth a try.
Fun Fast paced and entertaining, yet simple enough not to take up too much of your time or space on your phone. Also the touch concept is pretty awesome.
Nice simple concept Nice concept game, a little simplistic but fun enough for a few minutes at a time
Question What does the power up thats not fire power or health mean?
Creative fun What mobile gaming had been lacking as of recent.
Good idea but too hard and too much asteroid, those not need, only enemy much better
great game really unique shootig game, one of the best scroll shooting game on the phone, work best on the touch screen
Amazing Best controls ever. Point. Wish only for more levels. Retro b/w look FTW.
Simple and fun What a mobile game should be
Immersive game A really nice game and good for passing time.... one doesn't easily bored by this game
Good game The game is great but is there a way to turn off vibration?
Omg! Now i have to say: that's a game!
A must-have app Incredibly fun, cool and free
Excellent I love this game. So cool. More more games please.
