    The reviews I have read say the controls and art/graphics are first rate, but not much to do.

    It looks fairly similar to Dropship.

    For anyone who wants to watch a video on it, here ya go. :)

    I bought it. It's pretty cool. Pretty much a Zombie Invasion type game except your the Zombie and you can move. Worth a look, but not a must have. Overall just a vey nice looking time waster with ok controls, but could be improved. I think they should turn in into a RTS game thing so you can control a whole army of zombies etc. still, good enough fir a buck twenty tho.

    It's one of those games that you just play cause its fun, not b/c of beating a highscore or to gain achievements. Yes this game would be a LOT better if it had those features but then it also would be worth way more that .99 cents

    LOL, that was my review. :D

    The game is actually really fun, but there's only one never ending level and no high score board. The high score board would make it a lot better. That way, you'd at least have a goal. With an update (lke with Fieldrunners) this could an amazing game!

    I still recommend it though. The controls are like 2079 and Dropship.

    @ Pablo
    I started a thread when it came out, but nobody seemed that interested.

    It basically is 2079 with better eye candy

    Not really similar to Dropship in my opinion; maybe in it's controls (which I find a little better in this game, maybe because of the view).

    I would say it is similar in play style to Geometry Wars (I know Dropship is supposed to be a mixture of Thrust and the fore mentioned GW, but it's really only similar to GW in its style of graphics).

    As mentioned before there are no stops, levels or a goal of any sort. So while fun for a while, it looses it's edge due to lack of any real reason to keep playing. You can only strive to beat your own high score so many times.

    Now, if say a little multiplayer was thrown into the mix, we'd have a real winner here.

    I agree.
    Can you imagine this game with capture the flag? I would never get anything done because I'd never stop playing it.

    The thing I get paid for
    CANADIA
    Best control ever

    This has to have the best control scheme ever....it is very responsive. I would love to see more games have this kind of responsiveness and visual flair.


    A protect the flag game would be nice ---even multiplayer!

    Rapture. It sucks.
    It crashes every time I start it. I don't know why and it's making me mad.

    I think the title is just the developer testing the waters. If this one does well perhaps they will turn it into a fully fledged game.

    I've got the same problem; restarted, reinstalled, redownloaded; always the same. :(
    I note there's a review posted by someone who can use it on an ipod touch, but not their iphone. As I'm using an iPhone3G (2.2), has anyone got it to work on theirs?

    I'm using it on an iPhone 3G firmware 2.2. I still can't get it to start. It starts playing the music then freezes and crashes.

    I wish you could scoot around and build towers.. like ZA! but a larger scale... and also NotYou and I agree that if this had multiplayer, it would certainly have the highest replayability out there!
