    lol wtf?
    you guys are seriously good of overhyping something that you fond of
    I support indie games too i get it, but you people are ridiculous, It's just a normal 2D bullet dodge game with some meme and pop stuff
    $3 is better off with some other apps

    Different opinions to yours. That's all.

    And why call this a "bullet dodge game"?
    That's like calling a fighting game "fist dodging game." It's missing half the description. :eek:

    Wow, this has got to be one of the most idiotic things I've read on TouchArcade in a LONG time and I'm surprised no one commented on it. You want a refund? The game is, by all intents and purposes, a shmup. How did you buy it without knowing it was a "bullet dodge" game?

    Gamecenter fix and small update soon™

    Hi fellow Star Shooters,

    we and our genius partners Noodlecake have been busy tracking down the issue with Gamecenter crashing the game when having a lot of friends in your list. We fixed it and an update will come out soon™.

    Because updates only with fixes are not that much fun and some things happened we also added 2 new bosses to the game.
    For his very insightful review and for all of his fans here at the TA forums we added Carter as a boss. Looks like the aliens infested him too, but that's understandable, because he is definitely a star worth infesting. And before you ask, he is fine with being in the game, we asked for permission. I was having a blast creating a special bullet pattern that fits his style :D!

    Shortly after our launch I had the pleasure to meet Rami (wait for it) Ismail of Vlambeer in Vienna and he played Shooting Stars! and gave me very good feedback. The best was, that the game definitely needs a Vlambeer in it. I asked him if he's cool with beeing a boss, and he said sure. So I took a picture of him and Tscherno

    [​IMG]

    and did what I was told:

    [​IMG]

    On top of that I buffed some of the weaker active items. The update is small and the main reason for it is the bugfix, but if we can add a little more awesome to the update sauce, why not!

    Expect a really big content update later this year. We have some awesome things to bring to Shooting Stars! And btw: YOU GUYS ROCK. It's always a pleasure to revisit this thread.

    Until laterz, all the best from the rainbow unicorn research labs
    Michael

    PS: Please tell me you see the Vlambeer logo in the Rami boss pattern, because I do :)

    I can sort of see the logo, might need to be a little denser like the 3.5 though.

    Update 1.0.2 out - fixes GC issue and adds 2 new bosses

    Hi all,

    as promised, the update is out. We fixed the a lot of gamecenter friends issue and added 2 new bosses Carter and Rami, as introduced in an older post of me. And I balanced a lot of active items.

    To celebrate Bloodirony Games being at GDCEurope and Gamescom we also put the game on sale for 0.99. So if you did not buy it because of the gamecenter issues or the price, NOW IS THE TIME.

    enjoy
    Michael - leaving the rainbow unicorn research labs for one week of geekyness in Cologne.

    btw: the game is out on Android too, so more competitors in the daily run. The leaderboards are global and include players of both platforms :)

    I'm genuinely having a lot of fun with this. Great time waster for fans of old school shooters, though I don't have the reaction times I used to apparently! It helps that the visuals, audio and theme are funny and playful. A very solid shooter and a steal at 99 cents. I wouldn't mind seeing the option of a virtual joystick though!

    Already bought but haven't played, any mfi support?

    Also props to any devs that care about the people that love and play their products. I wish apple would just fire whoever is in control of the AppStore and hire a curator from Touch Arcade. Thanks for the game!

    Picked this up and love it. Pixel artwork always catches my eye and it's been a while since I played a good Shmup/Bhell game.

    At first the bosses were tough, but after learning their firing patterns and making better use of super attacks/weapons I'm dropping them...

    Except Belieber! Of them all I think he has got to be the most deserving of death by Lazer Kitty. But I just can't beat him. Has anyone?

    So I was just playing and really what an awesome game this really is. I'd love to see more content even if we had to pay for it.
