Due to the very exciting pre-release promo code hunt here at TA, I was rewarded a promo code before Ezone's Galactic Gunner release. Here is a a brief review for those who are interested. Galactic Gunner is a touch-to-shoot Sci-Fi action game. You play the role of a rookie gunner on a space fighter defending the galaxy from the evil invasion of the Trepidoids. The game plays out very cinematically. You have no control over your ships direction, only when and where your ship fires. You merely touch the screen to fire your lasers. This may sound boring to some, but, I find it exhilarating. The game is very action packed, and your ship zooming around and veering left and right makes the game very engaging. To me, it feels like a little simplified version of Star Fox, and just as fun. A thing that may remind me of Star Fox is your wingmen's constant interference and intrusion on screen, so you will have to watch your fire, or assist them. The graphics are very nice. Detailed and smooth, my iPhone 3G runs them great without any lag or skipping. The presentation is clean and responsive. The break down of each battle is perfectly in-depth, and contain's icons that looks suspiciously similar to the stars in Crazy Snowboard. There is a ranking system, which is based on your performance in game. There is also a points system based on target completion, and accuracy, so you can't just go tapping away willy-nilly. This adds a level of challenge, as having 100% accuracy is difficult and shooting a few too many times can make you unable to move on to the next level, because you need a certain amount of points to reach each level. There is a good level of humor in this game. It keeps it from being too serious, which is nice. It feels like it's poking fun at itself and games of a similar style. There are many lines of over-the-top cheesy dialogue, which I found myself chuckling inwardly at as i blasted the Trepidoids who spouted them. This attitude is always something I admire, and so, I liked this game just a little bit more. The funny thing is, as Ezone is an Australian developer, all of the MANY lines of voice acting have Australian accents, and there are many Australian colloquialisms mixed in to the menus and dialogue. Your ranks, whihc you attain through excellent performance, are even named after Australian terms. I find this particularly amusing, as I am good friends with an Australian and happen to know all of the slang. I have not yet finished the game, so I have no idea how many levels there are and the true extent of it's content. I'll be back to detail this once I do. However, the earlier levels can play out in a minute or less, so I do hope there are quite a few. So, right now, with these impressions, I give this game a 8.5 out of 10. It has a good bit of fun and humor, and it looks great, feels good, and has a pleasing level of challenge. If you like arcade shooters and are into cheesy Sci-Fi, i'm sure you will love this. And, at only $.99 (on its release), I would suggest it to anyone. The Trepidoid's Will Rule The Universe! Things that should be included in an update: -Online Scoring system. -(Possibly) More levels.
