I love and hate this game. This is a good time-waster game in the beginning, but near the end it feels like a chore just to get to the boss.

Pros:
Guideline is pretty accurate.
MECHANICS; Enemies with no helmet/mask are stunned when hit, enemies with helmet/mask aren't stunned. Bombs are more effective when shot at enemies underneath others.
Combos are fun to watch and satisfying.

The small details in the mechanics make this game challenging and fun in my opinion. "Should i use my lightning to take out the 3 eyed purple one? or the 2 eyed with helmet?"

Cons:
MECHANICS; you have to predict your shots because the guideline doesnt compensate travel for your shot and the rising of enemies.
Hit box is too small; there have been a bunch of times where i have a screen full of enemies but i end up hitting only 2-3 because my character seems to fall through every hole there is.
The gravity is weird in this game, if you shoot at an angle that is 90 degrees or so, your character will float for quite some time and wont bounce on enemies as much. If you shoot at a flatter angle, it will be as if your character is a rock skipping across water at 100 mph.
Lack of variety of enemies. There are 8 different enemies, but half of them are upgraded/variants of the basic enemies.
Power ups are kind of useless, especially the acorn one. It's so random that sometimes they dont hit enemies at all.

It took me about 4-5 levels to finally get a feel of the bounce/aim mechanics and another 3-4 to get the bounce combos i wanted. If the guidelines compensated for travel time/enemy rise time, i think it would be funner and easier to grasp. I didnt get to the boss, i found this game too boring and too frustrating to even try to get to the end.

Fun but a bit too easy. The boss was easier than some levels.

The concept is unique and does work, even though its silly and a bit repetitive. The problem is, there is too many problem within the game.

The power ups are random, so doesn't matter how much you upgrade it, if you don't get what you want (or worse, no power up cone), the situation is still doom. Sometimes it came a lot, and it was all about luck or not, which is obviously not what I like. This simply sometimes work and mostly useless.

I had nothing to complain for the design and art, even though the helmet they used are really weird for an alien. I mean, they use some fucking rugby (or whatever) helmet and one use skull like a tribesmen or something. Its just illogical on why the hell they would use it? But I don't mind much since the game isn't serious or having story anyway.

Talking about story, the plot is....irrelevant to the max. Alien ship crashed, and all they do is spending whatever they have to invade a single tree that guarded by squirrels. It would make sense if they are the defender of the whole forest or something....or maybe the alien are just so much obsessed with these squirrels...like revenge?

Setting everything about the plot, lets talk about if the game work or not. Upgrade need coin, and the amount of coin you receive is ridiculous. The coins upgraded to gems, but their worth is so low! Its only suddenly have such high worth on the 2 final stages before the boss fight. I understand that you could get point from making combo, but that one is only a lucky strike. The fact that you can't replay the stages isn't helping at all for gathering more money.

Last one.....wtf is that Max Game banner doing on the top!? Put it somewhere else, I can't attack by clicking the top of the screen!! arrrghhh.....=_=

the boss is impossible

It's fun, but there are really limited upgrades, no real sense of progression, and that Max Games link in the upper right opens a new tab and lags the game if you try to aim there, making it easy to accidentally lose lives. Please remove links from the playing area, and add some upgrades and some more interesting enemy variety.
