5/5 stars

Best Retro Shooter Period!!!

This game still rocks after 10+ years! If you like shooters look no further! This is it!

3/5 stars

Awesome game...

but there is one glitch that bugs me. I have it on the iPad, and there are no left and right arrow buttons to upgrade the power of weapons. I can't get much further in the game without doing so. It is a possibility that I'm missing it. Still an awesome game and once that part is fixed, will get all 5 stars.

0/5 stars

iOS 4 Incompatible

Great game and port, but it no longer works due to it's incompatibility with iOS 4.
