I am now concerned with the new access that is (necessary?) with the update. Avast has flagged it as a Trojan. This was one of my favorite games, I hope you address this issue, until then uninstalling the game
Can someone had idea about this thing? It doesn't make any sense lol. I don't have any idea what is the reason this app uninstall itself. Pls fix this. I like this game much. I'll rate 5 star for you if u do asap :)
This is one of the best top down shooter games that I have played in a long time!! So awesome! Only once complaint, the grinding is to hard, everything costs too many stars. If you please, could y'all please make stuff a little cheaper. Also could y'all maybe slow the game play down just a hair. Thank you; for making an epic, FREE, super addicting game. And good luck with future games and updates.
Gorgeous game with addicting levels. Love the upgrade system and levels of difficulty for repeat plays. One complaint is that there's an upgrade waiting time. I understand it's meant to get us to spend stars, but it would be nice to be able to purchase the ability to turn off the wait. Otherwise solid game! Another issue is that there seems to be an arbitrary limit on how powerful the ship weapons can get.
I got connected with my old account and I lost everything, i only got some achivments and open levels, I lost stage points and all ship upgrades (it was fully upgraded) . Everything else very good, I still have old Sky Force on old Nokia and it's still little more player friendly and you can choose more type of ships.
After months of playing this game, I can say, without doubt, that this game is absolutely the best of its kind... quite possibly the BEST mobile game, period. This game replicates the old arcade plane shooters perfectly, all while giving the genre a much appreciated makeover with incredible graphics and near infinite replayability. I literally can't say enough good things about it. Just try it out, you won't be disappointed.
I've enjoyed this games. It has a progression system, Challenging levels, and even an upgrade screen, where you can unlock new stuff to cause more havoc in the skies. The controls only requires one finger, even if you have manually activated upgrades. The best part about this game, is it rewards skill. You have 10 planes that if you crash you'll have to wait before your ship replenishes in order to play another level. However,not dying let's you keep your planes, thus allowing good players to play infinitly
This is the best bullet hell shooter there is in the play store. I've tried alot of them none could be compared to the quality of effort that these devs have put into the game. Gameplay is smooth. Music is amazing.interface is great. Overall it is nostalgic. BUT (there is always a but....ikr) the games pacing has problems. it is the grind simulator 2015. Anyway its advantages just overshadows it's huge (I mean HUGE) disadvantage. Nuff said.
If you're looking to scratch the old arcade style shmups, then if you have patience or some spare change lying around this is the game for you. The main gameplay is overtop view of your ship. Game features upgrades which are balanced well, not great at the start though. There's a very clear pay wall, but if you get pass that you'll have an excellent experience.
...There wasn't a limit on how many planes one gets, there wasn't an insane wait time for a plane, there wasn't a limit to how many commercials one could watch in order to get a plane, the game didn't lag out so one dies, one didn't lose star-purchased shields, lasers, and megabombs when one died. Basically this game would be sweet if the devs wanted you to actually play it instead of just trying to con you into making micropurchases every chance they get.
Overall it's a fun game to play, especially when you need to do something to pass the time. However, sometimes the game suddenly closes, without Android informing me that the game unexpectedly stopped. I hope this is not a problem with my device and can be fixed through an update.
I play it all the time! Best plane shooter out there and graphics are awesome! Will probably slow some devices down as graphics does get intense. I play on the Sony Z1 and it works great! I've also played on the Samsung S5 and it slows down when the fighting gets intense. Also, it's a battery drainer so keep device fully charged.
Good graphics, increasingly challenging levels with cool mini bosses. It feels great to defeat bosses that first seem to be impossible to beat. You need to collect stars on the map to upgrade different parts of your plane. I ended up buying a 'star doubler' that helped a lot to speed up the progress. You really need to upgrade a lot to do the later levels and this can become a bit tedious. Still a great game and very enjoyable.
Love the game. And I'm not really a gamer. However I just changed phones and this app doesn't have a login so I will loose all my levels unless there is an update soon to include a login. Kind of bummed that I may have to start all over. Love to keep playing too so please keep making more levels.
Love it! Great graphic design. Stages are quite challenging, especially the nightmare level. Playing again and again . Look forward more new stages come out. Never see any of "VIP" once.. My all Stars collected all gone when I start playing this game in my new device.. Please fix it.
Best top down shooter. Tried a few and they all have bad graphics. With exception of this. I do wish they would have more levels. Even If it was paid add on. galaxy Note 3 t-mobile
You will drain your battery by playing this so much. This game is truly superb... we'll done! Mechanics are perfect. UI is stylish, fitting and intuitive. Challenging but still fun. Support this group of talented developers and purchase in app items at a reasonable price. I've recommended it to several friends and they're easily as hooked as I am.
Crash fixed. But waaayyy too much lag even on a super high end device. Change to 1* for no update. Love the game but unplayable. Update: picked this game up after a long time. Game is much improved. Absolutely no lag, phone doesnt heat up anymore and uses less battery now. 1* less because some progress was lost after restoring from cloud.
Can't play more than 5 min, finger gets stuck to screen. That being said, it's a fine game, really nice graphics, decent gameplay. I'd give 5 stars but it has some problems: progress is really slow, you have to play the same stages over and over until you can upgrade and unlock the next. Also powerups collected in game get lost after finishing the stage.
As title says, my favourite Shmup game available. Had to reset my phone and thought I'd lost progress but spoke to developers and they were able to restore. Awesome people. Game can be a little repetitive if you don't want to pay for upgrades but I don't mind. Highly recommend this game.
Seriously perfect. I was afraid that it was going to bombard me with in a pp purchases but really they're not necessary at all. The only currency is the stars which are very easy to obtain and there's tons of achievements to earn. Definitely in the top 3 apps I've ever downloaded.
Highly recommended. A rare Android game that plays like a game instead of a business scheme. Really pretty visuals, neat voice effects, very nice to play. No cheap addictive trick, no spammy interface trying to promote IAPs, but a game you keep playing because you feel good playing it. Doesn't burn out on you; nice progression and rewards systems, enjoyable difficulty, especially when things get hectic. In short: very nice to look at and a solid, great game. I hope these guys find success with this one.
Awesome game. The dev has done a great job at balancing the advert to game ratio. I only have 1 negative thing to say.... Don't use your stars to get the mega bomb. Its 2000 stars, then u still don't have a mega bomb to use. You then need to use another 500 stars at the start of your lvl, to get a bomb. If u don't use it in that lvl... Its gone! Doesn't even carry over to your next game!
In a world of terrible mobile gaming, this truly stands out as a gem. The controls are perfect, the sound effects are wonderful, the graphics are wonderful, and there is subtle but rewarding replayability. Maybe the only thing I could ask for as an improvement is let me unlock skins for my ship, or let me change the color of the projectiles my weapons shoot.
There are lots and lots of free mobile games out there that are super fun. . . until you hit the pay wall. "Give me a dollar," the game says, "or this is about as far as you get." This game avoids that. You CAN fork over a few bucks for a bunch of stars or perks, but you never reach a point where you basically have to in order to proceed. Candy Crush this ain't. Brilliant game, and I've recommended it too pretty much everyone I know.
This the best game of this genre! One of those rare games that are a challenge yet the learning curve is just right. The depth of strategy and complexity builds as you progress so you never feel lost or overwhelmed . Also they've keenly built in reasons to go back and redo previous levels in a way that doesn't feel like a grind. Truly top notch game design and programming.
Probably the best game with neat HD graphics I've ever seen on a mobile. You can see each and every detail from the tiniest bush to massive explosions. The game is quite addictive and the gameplay is also great. Except that it's a big pain in de ass collecting stars as you require lots of 'em for your upgrades and encourages you to buy them.
This game is fantastic. I love old arcade-style games and this one delivers everything I could ask for. There are good difficulty and learning curves that ramp up appropriately; the player never feels coddled or completely overwhelmed. The real-time counters are a nice touch to help to moderate the pace so that you don't get sucked into a black hole. Adverts and in-game purchases never get in the way or break the flow. Very well done!
New update was a huge disappointment. When I saw an update I was excited, and hoping for new levels, and bonuses. However after opening the game following the down.load I have not seen a single difference. Very disappointed. Game is awesome and challenging but needs new levels in order to keep me interested. Also please figure out a better way to open up the tournaments, none of my Facebook friends play.
Oh my, where do I start. I played a very similar game a long time ago on the snes and was looking for an updated, similar game. Then I found SkyForce and really enjoy this game niw. It's a bit different than your usual danmaku games: grazing is particular hard due to your ship's chunky size. Better do a circle around salvos. Also, an upgrade system and collectible cards allow permanent buffs and extra weapons or shield. That also requires some grinding but higher levels give more stars which helps.
Very nice gfx and sound fx, easy controls but challenging gameplay Upgrades which you can complete by playing and collecting stars or... buying for real money The latter is not mandatory Ads not annoying at all Music... only weak point for me a bit too electronic, rock music would make perfect couple with this game Overall very good time killer :)
If you look for a nice shmup, you can't go wrong with this one. Very nice visuals and engaging game play. I can really recommend it. However, if you are like me and have no friends that play this game, you cannot enter the tournament. Which is quite a bummer. What is also kind of ruining the game, is the long waiting times for new "charges" to actually play the game. That should not exist. 1 hour to play 1 game and 10 hours for full charges is quite a chore. and no way around other than spending the currency which you need for upgrades.
This game is amazing! Great HD graphics and replay value is through the roof. It's affordable. It's doable without paying. A must have app for all my devices. I recommend. *Update* a long time ago I paid for this game. It's well worth it. Haven't played it in a while. Now, even though I paid for it, there are still pop up ads you have to press X to close. Minus 1 star. That's not how it works. You pay to get rid of the ads.
I loved playing the game until Avast! virus scanner kept flagging this as being infected with a Trojan - Android: Agent - IPL [Trj]. Basically the dev can access your Identity, deets and other sensitive info phone info. I'm playing it safe and deleting app.
Was expecting hardcore SHUMP game, but instead got a wonderful, creative and beautiful table top shooter instead. Not even disappointed. This game is worth the money and your time. I would like to see an Arcade mode, where it adds more enemies, fully upgraded ships and longer levels to give us a bullet hell! experience. I would like to see a slider to reduce the delay when controlling your ship as-well. All in All 4/5 Stars
PROS: Gorgeous graphics, great game-play, intuitive controls. Costs a fair price at the end of the day. CONS: Energy system, pay to play pay wall, feels like the game is 'playing you', one of the worst I've played for battery consumption and makes you phone very hot. SUMMERY: Spend just under £4 and the game becomes devoid of an energy system and most grinding mechanics with the star doubler and life timer reducer (also doubles life total). This I think is a very fair price for a very good game IMO
Why oh why do you need all the access you demand? It's one hell of a big downside and might make me uninstall. Fix it please because it's a direct violation against your private rights. You shouldn't be forced to give you those rights unless you want to. Yeah I want to play the game but why the hell should you get access to everything?
The only thing I could wish for in the game, is more levels. I also wish I got the upgrade cards when I still had upgrades to do.
This game is so fun and has lots of upgrades that are easily obtained with a few rounds on level 3 on the hardest setting. ALSO I HIGHLY SUGGEST A 0.99$ CENT PURCHASE ON DOUBLE STARS!! TOTALY A STEAL AT THAT PRICE!!
When the plane shoots, it goes pew pew. There's just nothing like it. This game inspired me to join the U.S. air force and I currently fly a KC-10. Unfortunately it does not go pew pew as I expected and I decided that I would have to leave considering the dangers of the operation. Also, as I was parachuting away from the incident that made me leave the air force, I took out my phone to play this game and dropped it. Had to write this review in a Best Buy but still 10/10 or 5/5 whatever you call it.
