    Graphics look great but we should see how the gameplay and the controls are. :)

    It's not compatible with the 1st gen iPod touch.

    *sighs

    Developers have got to stop making such silly ass mistakes. It hurts their bottom line.

    I like touch to shoot games.

    It's as close to gallery shooters and light gun games as we can get on this platform. And some are really good (that WWII gallery shooter is really fun, IMHO).

    but this looks like a 3rd person shooter....touch to shoot seems out of line with this type of game, dont you think?
    if thats the case, then its probably on rails too....yuck :)


    i guess im just itching for better 3rd person shooters...like the mercenary mode in Resident Evil, its great!

    Ok first impressions

    There are from what I can tell no sounds whatsoever. The main screen gives you three choices, Story Mode, Survivor Mode and How to play. How to play gives you 5 lines of text which says " Touch anywhere to shoot, but watch out for the shoot meter so you don't overload". Something like that. The game itself is basically 3D models with 2 animations each. Not kidding. The aliens/monsters look like they should need some textures cause they are all grey, with the exception for level 2, which is how far I played, they have green glowing eyes, and 2 animations.

    So, first impressions last they say, well, I was expecting a touch-the-screen-to-shoot-everything kinda game, and boy was I wrong. This is basically touch-the-screen-and-hope-the-monsters-die-but-I-have-no-idea-if-I'm-hitting-them-or-wait, well you get my point. It doesn't do anything right in that area. The overload metre is something special aswell. You got one shot, yes one shot, and then your gun is overloaded. Not kidding. This means that the aliens are standing in your face right away and doing something that barely resembles hitting.

    Final verdict. If you want a 2 animation-touch-screen-and-nothing-really-happens-and-die-after-20 seconds-game then this is for you...

    Otherwise stay away...

    Peace out

    No aiming, no challenge, no nothing...just tap at the bad guys, with 2 animations.

    Too bad because the 3D models looks pretty ok, except for the 2 animation per character work that is.

    Did I mention the characters only have 2 animations? ;)

    I can't do a gameplay video I'm afraid. But trust me, I've played ALOT of better similar games, if this "game" hits top hundred then I'll just shoot myself. ;) thank god it was only $.99. My first TOFTT and I end up with joke of the day. Sorry devs but that's the way I feel...

    Seriously though, thanx for the nice review comment. This is my first day here at TA so any warm reception is very welcome! :)

    Cheers! I'm off to bed now

    With love

    To think I nearly picked this one up hoping it would be in the same style as Resident Evil/Terminator...... glad I didn't. :)
