A 'classic arcade shooter', without so much shooting...
App DescriptionA classic arcade style space shooter! Collect crystals and destroy swarms of enemies, in this highly addictive game!
"Excellent in-app documentation, very well done and humorous, meaning you feel inclined to read it"
"It has a lot to offer and it's at a quality price, and it's very well made, no bugs here to speak of. It has been baked well. It gets 4 out of 5 star rating and a healthy reccomendation! This is a nice remake of a classic" - Luke Patrick, TheiPhoneAppReview.com (4/5)
"The on-screen controls are great. [..] I love the basic concept, art-style and the nice arcade-like background music" - Bobby Gooding, 148apps.com (3/5)
