Rated 5 / 5 stars

This has to be one of the funniest games that I have played in a very long time. I love the concept, the game play was great and while I don't really care for music in games (I usually mute it), I found myself loving it. And it's one of the few games that offers great replay. When can we expect a sequel?

It's kind of challenging, but it's the same old plane shooting game. **BORRRING!** Except there is the brake feature that gives you more control and less frustration. But still why do we need MORE of these games? It's time for something NEW.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

The game was great the first 4 or 5 levels, after that it got too boring to finish. Perhaps you should add more different types of ammo and enemies more challenging
