    I like it a lot. However, it may need a little more work. There is no 'options' screen, so i can't turn sound on or off, there is no way to see highscores, etc. The game itself is a lot of fun though, i particularly like that i can rescue people from my contacts list. And it looks great.

    Very slick. The introduction to the controls makes it look quite tricky to move around accurately, but it works out being surprisingly intuitive, though still not easy. Being wireframe, the scenery graphics maintain a good, fluid framerate, whilst lending it that retro air.

    People will discover a cute trick the developer's played with naming the guys you need to rescue.. =:)

    i was a little bit upset when i recognized that its actual a 2D game with 3D graphics. but its also a lot of fun! i think i'll play it a lot =)

    @ daan: you can see your highscores in the left corner of each level. ok...theres no list where you can write your name in. i hope they will do it with an update.

    I think it's a good alternative to Chopper although the controls are not as easy as expected.

    I really *really* want to love this game ... it's the one I've been waiting for since the first news article.

    But I don't love it :/

    Actually I think I hate it, for trying to be more than it needs to be.

    Maybe it'll be better for kids, but I have man hands and it's absolutely infuriating to play - half the screen is covered by my thumbs, and it doesn't always do what you want it to do.

    The wandering camera is annoying, auto-zooming in and out - which just adds to not being able to see what you *want* to.

    I think it would have been much better if it fired in the direction you were moving - even with a seperate fire button.

    The lack of options - for a game that's been in development this long - is very disturbing... audio On/Off is a staple of mobile games. It's insane not to have it here.

    Sorry guys, but after trying to persevere for over an hour all I have is sore hands and a sad heart: This is a fail for me.

    Can you say ng:moco:( ?

    I like it - a lot.

    Its smooth, bright, quick and sharp and I'm finding it surprisingly easy to control accurately.
    The thing with the names is cool - don't want to spoil it here..

    Alright, this game is A LOT (!!!) of fun to play. The controls are very easy to use, and allow you to reposition the controlling elements if your big thumbs are in the way. This might be one of the more interesting titles to be released IMO.
