Gemini Strike: Space Shooter
Description
Blast your way through enemy ships, evade fiery asteroids, sneak through blockades and face-off against epic bosses in this action-packed space shooter! Then when the blasting is done, raid cargo ships to find procedurally generated items to customize your fighter. With a zillion different modules to mix and match (shields, missiles, lasers, beams, healing, EMPs) you are never short of ways to turn squads of enemies into beautiful cosmic fireworks.
 With a catchy techno soundtrack and enemies that fill the screen with projectiles as dazzling as they are deadly, it's perfect old-school action for as little or as long as you have time to spare. Classic arcade action with a modern stylistic flair, Gemini Strike is a challenging space shooter that will test your skills but keep you coming back for more. * Destructive physics - enemy ships spin out of control and smash into each other * BIG boss fights * BIG explosions
 * RPG Hybrid - tons of procedurally generated items * Secret boss and cargo missions appear on the map 
* Engrossing characters and storyline 
* 100 sectors of glorious destruction
Don’t understand the negative reviews

Best space shooter game you can find. Absolutely ZERO need for purchases.
Lots of potential
by Lil N8TV on 2019/05/16 09:30
There’s a lot that can be added the game seems cut and dry and has been for a while, if they got onto adding different aspects to the game it would be much more interesting
BIG PROBLEM
by Pig zombie on 2019/04/07 14:12
On the new iPhone XS Max the game doesn’t fill up the screen and there'sThea black bars at the top and bottom. When you move your ship over them it gets stuck. It completely messes up the game and causes you too die. Please fix.
Very good
by SurpriseFluffyKitty on 2019/03/19 23:21
Reminds me of Sky Force Reloaded, although it's pretty different, and the story's actually pretty engaging. Unfortunately, as thing's get harder, the pacing suffers, but that's not enough to give it a bad score. EDIT: So I’ve noticed a “bug” perhaps. When you exit out of the game and come back in, the bounty, cargo, and raid missions are all instantly generated. This definitely makes it easier to accrue things, but...I have to wonder...is it TOO easy...?
I love this but...

I really want a multiplayer mode and can you make the Black Friday sales cheaper? Pls
How to still enjoy
by glevan98 on 2019/01/21 17:51
People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.
Come Back!!!!
by Flycotic on 2018/07/03 06:20
Please come back and update this app. It needs some lovin and fixes and more content. Been here since day 1 and love this game to death. I can’t bring myself to delete it
Amazing game
by hiliwaka Kill on 2018/06/27 13:22
So l love this game and won’t stop playing it (99%) off the day
Great but could be better
by oscarbman on 2018/04/27 06:50
This game is fun but it gets repetitive after a while. I like this game because of the story driven characters, but I wish Gemini Strike was way more story driven.
Could be better
by JNutter3006 on 2018/04/07 21:39
The game is difficult. It’s not an impossible “you lost a mission so it’s game over” but it is difficult. I would love a function where we can keep our “cargo” from mission until we can open them. It’s annoying to survive through one, only to find out I don’t have the credits or cubes to open the cargo. Good game, worth it if you have patience! -J
So much fun
by Awesome kingdomrush game!!!277 on 2018/03/21 02:14
Lots of potential... please keep updating and adding to it. More ships, maybe a screen that allows you to view the current ship with the upgrades on it! More background scenes. More special weapons!!!
Abominable Space Shooter!
by AcEMaNz on 2018/03/15 12:02
I read some of the other reviews and I do not understand their complaints. It is shooter with RPG style stats. You can get credits and bounty quickly by completing bounty hunt missions and cargo missions which are plentiful. Once you save enough credits (which does not take long), you can unlock stronger ships. There are so many ships to choose from and they have a variety of special weapons and stat bonuses. Also, the reactors are powerful and are crucial for victory. The raid missions are fun and give you power cores which unlock some of the best ships in the game. The bounty hunt and cargo missions get progressively harder as you unlock more sectors so a good strategy is to play these missions early on to collect credits, bounty, ships, and rare items. Then once you become more powerful, beat a few more sectors, then play more of the side missions again so you can become even stronger. Repeat this process and you will progress throughout the game like a blood thirsty falcon. Visually, the game is stunning. The weapon effects are awesome, the sound is strong, and the gameplay is intense. The screen is always filled with a variety of unique and great looking enemy weapons. The bosses and their weapons are wild and their music is intense. Another great aspect in the game is the story line. The game contains dialogue throughout the entire campaign which is witty and entertaining, and the story itself is intriguing. The characters are well developed and interact in interesting manners. I am absolutely stunned by players saying that they couldn't get past the first 6-10 sectors. There are 100 sectors! I am equally as surprised by how many players said that the developers are greedy and how they force you to spend money to progress throughout the game. This is simply not true. The time it takes to collect credits and bounty is reasonable if you play both the campaign and side missions. Plus, you must get better items and ships as you progress throughout the game. It does not take too much time to get and upgrade items that will help you progress through the next few sectors. It takes a while to beat the entire game because there are so many missions and tiers of items. Whenever you do need to get better items, it does not take too long. The side missions are fun, change as you progress, and help you get better items and credits pretty quickly. Plus, the items get better and never get old because there are always new types of awesome stats and weapons. A smart strategy is too equip a combination of items and ships that have a chain-link effect (powerful stats that power other powerful stats). I don't mean to degrade these gamers, but I hope to get more people to understand the strategies needed to conquer this amazing game. I never had to grind much or spend money, and even though its challenging, I never got stuck on one level for a long time. More people would enjoy it if they would understand the proper strategies and appreciate the myriad of RPG style items. There are an incredible amount of amazing stats, weapons, and missions. How could you not enjoy this game? There are so many gameplay elements. The developers deserve more credit. This is the most underrated vertical shooter. Anyway, I love this game. It is perfect and no other vertical shooter is like it. I appreciate the compelling story line, awesome items and stats, myriad of ships and weapons, great sound and graphics, and very smooth gameplay mechanics. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
Amazing Game
by Wudhdjakdkddu on 2018/03/03 20:28
This is one of this most challenging space shooting game I’ve played. It’s very fast paced, and CHALLENGING. But it has one flaw, the way to get credit is very hard. I know that you are able to watch an ad for extra credit, but those come very rarely. Overall, very amazing game, very challenging too, but credit is hard to come by.
This is nothing but a cash grab
by Qwerty1976 on 2017/11/25 08:07
This is no more than a mediocre shooter. After 1 hour of play the game goes from easy to near impossible. Your lives are on a timer to manipulate you to spend money on lives. There’s so many better shooters out there that aren’t a cash grab: Phoenix 2 Time locker Sky Force (any version) Infinity gene Plasma sky ... to name a few.
Garbage
by trapmaster.awebb on 2017/11/13 17:51
As you progress through the game it becomes more and more buggy. By the seventh level I would die before the first enemy even spawned and lose a life. Utterly terrible game
Great game + graphics
by CoruscantII on 2017/11/10 20:45
Graphics in this game are amazing and gameplay is really fun too, especially in higher levels, however I didn't really like the story mode or campaign part. Mostly kept going back through levels after I had completed the campaign, as that's what is more fun in my opinion..
Not A True RPG, And That’s Its Fatal Flaw
by Paradise Imminent on 2017/11/10 06:46
I had this game once before, but I wanted to try it again, to see if the issues previously discovered had been resolved. In a word: no. The capabilities of your ship are almost completely dependent on the stats attached to the armaments from the crates; if you want a better ship, it will require better loot. You can get crates in a number of ways, but to get the loot FROM the crates, you’ll have to spend the game’s currency - either gems or credits. If you obtain a crate without having the gems or credits to open it, you’ll have to either spend real money to get the amount you need, or abandon the crate, as if any crate not opened is destroyed. Even if you do obtain the loot from the crate, the stats attached are a complete jumble, unless it is rare-grade loot or higher, meaning that the loot you may want to use may not make your ship any more capable to survive. This will mean spending a good amount of time simply grinding for the loot that will have the stats to keep your ship intact for more than a couple of hits. To raise the stats on the loot you get? LOTS of gems; 3,850 of them, to be exact, to get even standard loot to their max level. Without the gem doubler (a in-game purchase), amassing that amount would take longer than it is worth. I have made it to sector 26 for the first time, but the grinding and spending of gems and credits in the hopes that an armament that I want will actually improve my ship, instead of just giving me a desired weapon to use, actually makes the ‘tons of items procedurally generated’ a negative thing; it would be better to simply have a shop that allows to purchase what you want, so you have more control over your ship’s stats/chance of survival, or have a level-up system on your ship itself, so that you have a chance of making it better in between all the crate obtaining/opening. *sigh* I’ve had enough... again. :-(
DEVS PLEASE FIX URGENT
by Ju_k1 on 2017/11/05 15:36
My facebook save isnt popping up! i cant find it anywhere and i had so much progress! please help!!!
Great game though
by Gaming Guy0239 on 2017/11/02 21:55
This is a great game but sometimes it can be a little to hard and the ads really get on my nerves please remove them so I can have a solid gameplay experience. :)
Still sad
by Guy65746 on 2017/10/29 15:23
I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.
Could be a great game but,
by _Sir Cool_ on 2017/10/26 14:57
It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.
Fantastic
by Ur-Procyon on 2017/10/24 01:48
One of the best shoot'em up games available today. It has everything a proper space drama fan could ask for. Modern yet classical UI, nostalgia inducing pixel designs, heart-pumping physics engine, engaging characters and storyline, great variety of ships and upgrades that prevents the game from becoming stale... It's magnificent.
Horrible update
by Jjc1347138 on 2017/10/04 19:40
Most recent update messes everything up. Constantly kicks or back to home screen, watching video to continue doesn't work ever for special missions/rarely for normal levels.
Chang it now
by Carson lujan on 2017/09/16 07:18
The bosses are to hard and I don't want to lose my progress change it now and the enemy missile do to much damage and are to fast and are hard to make them miss and go of the screen in I'm angry at you now change it
Abandoned game don't bother
by Kermit007 on 2017/08/15 02:35
Developer wiped out all paid for content, requires purchase again, now is an ad after almost every mission which winds up crashing the game. Used to be an awesome game and now just greedy dev trying to squeeze every penny out of a game while dropping features. Amazing game before and just trash now.
Idek
by coolstreet on 2017/08/01 06:50
How did this get on my purchased list? I've never seen this game before, much less downloaded ir
Too many adds! Please remove!
by True_Gamer 135 on 2017/07/16 17:56
Gemini Strike is a great game with fantastic graphics and gameplay. This was one of my favorite games, that was until adds were introduced. Half of the game is spent watching adds, and every other time one closes, the game freezes with a gray screen, and forces me to force close the app. Not to mention, multiplayer and PVP should be added to the game. Without adds, I would definitely rate this game 5 stars. Please take into account what I have said. It would be such a shame to see such an amazing game ruined by adds.
Eh...
by Masterjakefinn on 2017/06/24 05:25
It's ok I hate the ads thought good idea and fun
Last update removed data
by Zcy01 on 2017/06/06 15:55
I lost all my in app purchases and progression with the removal of the social tabs because that is how my account progress was saved. I should get a refund or a credit. Other than that the game would be more addicting if it wasn't so repetitive.
Stupid Ads Ruined Everything
by K.R.S_1 on 2017/06/06 02:43
This was a fun and addictive classic arcade shooter with a cool story, great graphics and sweet weapons. Now there are stupid ads that pop up after every level every time and when you try to skip them it turns the screen black and you have to force quit. What a pathetic shame to ruin such a unique game.
Enjoyable
by Seat flames on 2017/06/04 02:54
This is a favorite of mine.
Coming Back
by Random-w-LoL on 2017/05/27 15:01
I honestly gave up on this game even though it was really fun to me when it was first released. And this last update said it "no longer requires internet connection to play" which really was the only thing holding me back. So I'm glad to see one of my favorite bullet hell games once again!
Huh
by StreetKing: Lionhawk on 2017/05/25 00:00
Thought this game was abandoned guess not. It's a good game.
One of my favorites
by Canthor on 2017/05/24 03:35
I really enjoy this game, and consider it and Isotope my favorite spaceship games on iOS.
Well thought out.
by Abe Lever on 2017/05/06 21:12
It seems as though this was a thought out game with the level ups and so forth. I like that you can go back to easier levels to sort of build up your abilities before moving on.
update thissss
by Frupfrut on 2017/04/26 14:21
i love this game but it needs new features and stuff
Update?
by Vantady 12/19 on 2017/04/15 00:07
I really love this game and have been playing it for a few years but the servers seem to be down for the game ): . Although I can play on offline mode, I'd rather continue my progress online. I hope to see the developer(s) return to this game and update it
Update
by Danny"A" on 2017/03/30 23:31
Plz make the app compatible with new iOS
Work in progress... maybe?
by Minecraftfreak91 on 2017/03/29 13:10
This game has a lot of potential there are soooo many glitches in this game and it can be extremely frustrating. Another reason this game gets two stars is you could barely call this game a "freemium game" as it's nearly impossible to get a good collection pace of the premium currency. (Boooooooo and shame on the developers!). Lastly I've been playing for about a while and it's not had a single update the entire time
Good!
by 😨😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 on 2017/03/18 01:06
It's a very good game got to say but I think you could make it a bit easier yeah! Ok.
Great
by PapaOink on 2017/02/01 00:27
It's a great game no words
Fun game almost perfect
by Demonicflash on 2017/01/29 00:15
The game itself is great except that it is frustrating having to wait 15 min for extra lives when you die.
Best RPG and iOS game
by Abe Lares on 2017/01/23 19:29
This game is a really great I love it, it's an RPG space shooter. All I have to say it's a great experience for me, also it's challenging!
Best space shooter I've found. Keep comin back to it.
by Kingjoshua45 on 2017/01/18 20:40
Nice balance. Fun and still challenging. Like the weapon system. Haven't spent very much money and didn't need to spend that just did.
SUPER FUN!!
by Pseudospectrin on 2017/01/17 15:08
I play this thing literally too much. It's Galaga on crack! It can be a bit difficult at times but is very exhilarating and action packed. My only con is that you have to wait a while if you run out of lives. Other than that. I love this game!!
Meh
by Ngilman18 on 2017/01/11 16:56
Is ok but the secret missions should be easier or if you die you keep the money because I used a lot of lives only to get nothing
Y?
by Brasif on 2016/12/01 20:53
Why on earth is it necessary for this game to be only available when online?
BEST MOBILE GAME PLOT
by PRXYMTY STRKE on 2016/11/29 06:14
Everything was beautiful in the game, graphics, plot and equipment. However, as you got nearer to finishing, the game was very monotone and had little challenge. Also there is a minor bug on the very last sector that makes you go back to the beginning of the sector after you finished it. FYI sector 100
Great
by uncles warm touch on 2016/11/24 03:34
So much fun. I really wish they'd keep adding to it. The purple reactor is the best!
Great game, didn't like lives system
by LelGamer300 on 2016/11/10 05:35
The game is addictive, well-made and thought out. It is easy to pick up and entertains for hours-until your lives run out. I didn't like the fact that once you die, you have to wait 15 minutes to play again. It may not seem long, but once you encounter harder levels, it becomes a pain to not be able to try over and over again. This feature disappointed me as it is pretty obvious that it was made to get money. In order to refill lives, a player pays in a valuable virtual currency that has a freakishly similar value to real money. The game itself is fun and well made. I wouldn't really call it an RPG, but it certainly has some elements of one. The beautiful art and zero ads make it a likeable game overall. I would recommend the game, but expect to pay some money-just to play it.
Not bad, but game is dead
by Fukmonkey on 2016/11/08 04:34
I played & beat this game about a year ago, but have been farming the boss battles. As of 2 weeks ago or so, the game erased my data. It won't connect, & tells me to create a new nickname. I believe this gave is now dead & should be removed from the App Store. Also yes, the developers never bothered to fix the glitch in the final cutscene.
There is no "p2w wall"
by Powersbehind on 2016/11/06 20:25
Yea great game but slightly repetitive, I played this game in the beginning when it came out and finished all the 600 total levels with out paying. It's really not that hard but it's pretty fun when you are able to get new ships and such
My game won't work anymore
by 👻🤖👽☁️🛰 on 2016/11/02 21:59
This game is great but there is one problem. The problem is whenever I try to play this game it asks me to create a nickname and when I press ok it says error! This game is really great but I can not play it anymore thanks to this! Please fix this thank you
Fun...
by 12Stonesfan on 2016/10/24 23:17
But hasn't connected for days. The developers facebook page is inactive, so no way to report problems.
Awesome sauce
by 8ty5ive on 2016/10/10 11:46
Very addictive
Great old school-like shooter
by musesearch on 2016/10/10 00:46
Great game. Shooter in the old arcade vertical shooter mode Many ships and weapons to earn. Even a little story. But the last bit of story or dialogue to wrap up the game will not play! Just disappears! Lost a star for that. Can someone at Armor Games explain themselves?
5 stars.
by JasonNashJr on 2016/10/09 20:57
Love it.
Best game I've ever played on ios
by Apples8404 on 2016/08/18 08:34
Beat the game. Absolutely loved it. Really want you guys to expand the storyline. It doesn't have to end at 100.6. Keep it going! I was a completely free to play player and was able to progress all the way through the game in just a few weeks. The skill cap is very high and not for the faint of heart. New ships, weapons, and an expanded storyline could really increase the life of this game. I want more!!!
Plz remove or add more lives
by Jccj013 on 2016/08/02 22:33
hello creators if your reading this plz eemove or add more lives this game is very fun but i cant play it all the time because oof the lives i die all the time in these kind of games and four lives are not enough so plz if you see this plz add more lives or remove them.
Great game!
by Sir_Theori1527 on 2016/07/29 14:12
Very well made and a ton of fun to play. Good job!
Mhm I like it,no no love it!
by Pkskdndbdbfjf on 2016/07/26 07:39
Yes!Good...well everything!
Like it
by klen0929 on 2016/07/16 01:46
My childhood favorite! I miss galaca game :)
Its an ok game.
by Rentaroli on 2016/07/06 15:55
I was stuck on level 2.6 for the logest time, and was about to give up on it and delete the game, but then I survived the boss with 1 health and I was so happy :D
Huge Fun Factor!
by Jiminix83 on 2016/07/01 06:16
A lot of useless items that end up being sold for a huge loss. Story line's pretty cheesy. It is a lot of fun to play though. Beautiful graphics!
Great game but....
by Ren873642 on 2016/06/24 22:40
I think it's a great game but the fact that you have to wait until you get more lives really stinks. I would have given it a five star rating if you didn't have to wait to play again.
One word "FUN"
by Alex1joy on 2016/06/01 19:16
A total gem! This game has a great soundtrack and sound effects. It has comedy within the cut scenes which was unexpected. The comedy gives the game personality. It is well scripted and gameplay is excellent. This is one of the best games I have ever played...it reminds me of Super Nintendo and that is saying a lot. Good job!
Fun, Addictive, Creative and A Bit Unfair
by Jjvjtfchgvg on 2016/05/28 17:47
I am a big fan of top-down shooters. When I saw this one I had to just try it out. I like the creative story line and also the fact that I can put the silly disgusting name as the pilot and read it every time they see my name. Hee hee. The game gets a little unfair because you have such little energy to take hits from the bad guys. Whereas they have thousands and thousands and thousands of points that you have to keep smack him around until they blow up. All in all it is a very fun game. It's a free game! Download it.
Eh
by Jakombi on 2016/05/26 07:26
Pretty fun overall. I like it.
Very disappointed in last level
by Fjjssod11 on 2016/05/25 12:55
After you beat the last level 100.6 nothing special happens at and they bring you back to 100.1. This happened to me twice already. I wish I never started this game. Maybe they're doing this so people continue to buy. Wish I never started it honestly.
Great game!
by Air0110 on 2016/05/21 17:37
This game has great graphics, and scaling difficulty based on level which adds to the challenge. Have been playing for a couple years now and they have fixed many glitches and added to the story through lvl 100.6. Difficulty levels off after about lvl 50.. saved up for better ship after that. Play previous levels to earn credits to enhance weapons. I never payed a penny and fairly easily beat bosses after sector 70 once my weapons were upgraded. Use black market to buy better cargo. Can't wait to see the next update to add more levels past 100.6! Keep it going!
Best. Game. Hands. Down
by sunofgun on 2016/05/20 00:27
At first I was like what is this? But then the game took me in its muscular arms and hoisted me to the heavens and showed me what a game could really be. Ever since I've been changed 😂😂
Great game
by Rikyyrick on 2016/05/16 21:55
I don't ever write reviews but this is a great game. Wonderfully challenging but not impossible. This has kept my attention for a couple weeks now.
Awesome
by Allc1865 on 2016/04/25 02:37
Awesome game
Solid all around great game
by Anwerthedamnquestion on 2016/04/23 17:50
The game is amazing. Even the glitches are amazing. You can actually get credits off of glitches and this is a problem I personally dont want them to fix. Only thing I can conplain about is the void bomb, a rare weapon most people dont get or dont use. If you could just make it so that it fires and explodes at an exact distance no matter what (like a grenade launcher) that would be great. Because sometimes Im attacking a cargo ship and it fires and kills me and the cargo ship. Also dont make it fire during blockades and asteroid missions please.
Needs some Tweaks
by XxGamefreckxX on 2016/04/22 21:55
Shields need nerfing they should take damage as they deploy Example Green-Healthy Light green- slightly damaged Yellow-Damaged Red-Warning Also regular crates should have increased rarity drops
Great game!!!!
by MegaDrMonsterMan on 2016/04/08 04:11
I love this game! It's free and very fun to upgrade your ship and earn new ships. Much better than some of the other space pilot games I've played recently. You either have to be a crazy skilled pilot or spend your time getting rare items to make your ship better. Great way to pass the time.
Wow, what the heck?!?
by Prefektt on 2016/03/31 04:27
You've gotta be kidding me. This game is no longer fun to and is now just complete garbage. After deleting the game for space, there was no option to keep the game on game center. After reinstalling the app, I lost ALL OF MY PROGRESS and was around sector 40 - 50. I lost ALL MY SHIPS, even after restoring my purchases, it did nothing. Did I just get scammed? Yes, I spent money on this game. Now, all the money I spent on the game is gone. And the time I spent playing this game was wasted and nothing came of it. I am VERY UPSET, ESPECIALLY after spending money and not getting my stuff back. Wouldn't recommend if you will just end up deleting in the future. Thank you so much for wasting my time and money, Armor Games.
Sweet game!
by Badness2002:P on 2016/03/25 19:17
Loads of fun. Interesting story plot. Would recommend to everyone
Amazing
by Hunterkiwi on 2016/03/20 23:42
This game is just amazing. It's one of the best mobile games I've played in a while that has a story behind it. I'll start with the graphics. The retro like style is so nostalgic yet new. The flow of the animation is so smooth and constant as well and I've never had to deal with and rendering. Moving on to the play style of the game. It's an arcade style shoot em up in space. Now you can go through many different levels and worlds and even replay old levels. The characters are so well developed and fluent that it feels so surreal. You can also select from a wide range of ships and find new upgrades. The only problem I have is the virtual forcing of purchasing. You'll need to purchase credits for ships or parts sooner or later or it'll be nearly impossible to progress any further. Though I have made purchases, that won't stop me from enjoying this beautifully crafted game.
Pretty good but...
by MinecraftPro129 on 2016/03/16 23:00
This game is really good, well made and extremely fun. But once you find EMPs it goes downhill. Once you hit one you go slow and get hit by everything at least when you're facing a boss or mini boss ship. Also, it takes a long time to earn the orange credits it should be alot easier. Other then that its a pretty good game.
Best Game for Free
by Juberymo on 2016/03/13 06:22
Very fun and exciting. Only gets better as you upgrade you ships and weapons, recommend to anyone!
Veeeery good
by Random dude XD on 2016/03/08 02:23
Very good game, reminds me of the difficult japanese games of this type and resembles it in a good way. Thought its hard and i would like to have a shop where you can buy other equipment, overall is pretty good
This game is great but...
by Garr4 on 2016/03/06 03:39
This game is so much fun! The only thing that is wrong with the game is that you have to be on an Internet connection to play, if you could make a cloud save type of thing I would give this five stars because it's kinda annoying that I can't play this game offline without starting over again. But overall great game!
Yeah..no.
by theclintwhite on 2016/02/22 03:42
Sector 2.6? You guys need to do something about those missiles. They keep following you. It's one thing if it's just the missiles but when you have a boss sending a crazy amount of them, along with exploding yellow, red, green, you name it at you, no. I'm not going to buy an in app purchase for this game. Such BS.
Very unique and fun
by Herpy Derpity on 2016/02/20 20:07
Worth a try!
Shameful pay-to-win
by Amy Shan on 2016/02/18 03:10
Absolute most lousy pay-to-win game I've ever played. Don't expect to get anywhere without spending a whole lot of $$$. Or alternatively, collect the astonishing daily reward of 1 credit to save up for a ship (ships cost 30). So in 30 days, you can finally beat level 3... maybe. Absolutely shameful. Forget these shills and apologists giving it 5 stars.
Good but has some issues
by Sajuukhar on 2016/02/10 15:05
The positives: bright colorful graphics, decent storyline, easy to play. No real paywalls. The negatives: repetitive, there are 100 zones of 6 levels each but there are very few mission types. Almost all just destroy the targets, but once per zone there is a asteroid, or mine field mission which are seemingly identical zone to zone or a blockade mission. The story goes entire zones without updates. The ending is bad, I won't give out a plot detail but you get a 2 text line ending and then the game lets you replay the last 6 levels over and over again without any story. For those that think you need to spend money. You can get 4 credits per day, the high end ships cost 30 credits and you are just fine with the starter ship for a while.
One of my favorites
by Frothychair on 2016/02/05 01:25
I'll make it 5 stars when I don't have to redeem my purchases every time I turn the game on to get my double gems I paid $5 for..
Great game but don't expect a walk in the park
by Whoever made this rules😊😃😄 on 2016/02/04 04:07
This game deserves a five star rating, it's got the graphics, ships, multiple enemies, scenery, and decent customization. The main issue is that sure it's easy in the beginning on purpose, but eventually the game gets very tedious in the fact you are facing impossible odds and the only way to continue is to equip all defensive such as healing, shielding, and the one ship that offers lock on bullets. And that issue is annoying but forgive able since it appears later on in the game you get the full experience before hand, my only complaint is I want to finish the story lol but it's too hard to go on. Fix that and this game will be the best I've ever played in this genre of gameplay great job!
Great game
by Stabbing u in da foot on 2016/02/03 23:43
I love this game thair is so much content I never get board
Bullet hell
by Tatorous on 2016/02/03 22:26
Rightfully so, the challenge to stack 5 seconds sitting still (item that gives 50 hp per 5 non-consecutive seconds sitting still) gets progressively harder as the enemies vomit projectiles at you and have more ion shields (play it). 8/8 m8
Yes but also no
by Brutus rules on 2016/02/03 13:41
This game, I admit it's fun and addicting but why make these bosses harder than ever I remember the old arcade games and they were a whole lot easier I see this game and there's constant die, die, die, and die during the bosses there's like a million bullets getting shot each second and it's kind of immense bull crap that I can't shoot and kill the first boss because there's bullets getting shot in every direction I can't even concentrate on what the purpose is...
Stupid
by Edicxkcvf on 2016/02/01 18:01
This game is just dumb what else can I say? When the 2nd boss at the very beginning of the game disables your ship for 3 seconds every time you get hit, and all every single missile chases you around the screen 35 times, I delete a piece of trash app from my device
Bullseye
by Gehrehmeigh on 2016/01/29 01:24
A superbly challenging & entertaining space shooter. Absolutely worth a try, though you'll have to choose between online or offline mode, & I don't believe you can switch back (with that particular game file). But even offline, the game is reminiscent of retro, in a very good way.
This game is amazing
by Mollyjeanrn on 2016/01/23 00:07
I was just looking for a simple space game but then I found this and saw it was like Galiga and started playing really got into the story and mechanics and think it's the space shooter ever
Plz update addicting game
by Matcdt on 2016/01/17 14:50
Best app EVER need an update
Sweet
by Sweet creamer on 2016/01/04 20:38
This game is sweeter than sweet cream!
Can't get past the first level
by ndusr on 2016/01/03 02:29
I think I'd like it well enough, but I can't get past the boss on the tutorial.
Most addictive space game ever !
by JoBenavi on 2015/12/29 21:20
I love this game I specifically requested to find something like Galaga or better this is actually much more better than I expected ! I'm always playing this game instead of being on Facebook or playing candy crush , this is a must have for every iPhone 6 user !
Could be a great game but,
by _Sir Cool_ on 2017/10/26 14:57
It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.
Still sad
by Guy65746 on 2017/10/29 15:23
I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.
Very good
by SurpriseFluffyKitty on 2019/03/19 23:21
Reminds me of Sky Force Reloaded, although it's pretty different, and the story's actually pretty engaging. Unfortunately, as thing's get harder, the pacing suffers, but that's not enough to give it a bad score. EDIT: So I’ve noticed a “bug” perhaps. When you exit out of the game and come back in, the bounty, cargo, and raid missions are all instantly generated. This definitely makes it easier to accrue things, but...I have to wonder...is it TOO easy...?
How to still enjoy
by glevan98 on 2019/01/21 17:51
People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.
Amazing Game
by Wudhdjakdkddu on 2018/03/03 20:28
This is one of this most challenging space shooting game I’ve played. It’s very fast paced, and CHALLENGING. But it has one flaw, the way to get credit is very hard. I know that you are able to watch an ad for extra credit, but those come very rarely. Overall, very amazing game, very challenging too, but credit is hard to come by.
Could be better
by JNutter3006 on 2018/04/07 21:39
The game is difficult. It’s not an impossible “you lost a mission so it’s game over” but it is difficult. I would love a function where we can keep our “cargo” from mission until we can open them. It’s annoying to survive through one, only to find out I don’t have the credits or cubes to open the cargo. Good game, worth it if you have patience! -J
Great game + graphics
by CoruscantII on 2017/11/10 20:45
Graphics in this game are amazing and gameplay is really fun too, especially in higher levels, however I didn't really like the story mode or campaign part. Mostly kept going back through levels after I had completed the campaign, as that's what is more fun in my opinion..
Fantastic
by Ur-Procyon on 2017/10/24 01:48
One of the best shoot'em up games available today. It has everything a proper space drama fan could ask for. Modern yet classical UI, nostalgia inducing pixel designs, heart-pumping physics engine, engaging characters and storyline, great variety of ships and upgrades that prevents the game from becoming stale... It's magnificent.
So much fun
by Awesome kingdomrush game!!!277 on 2018/03/21 02:14
Lots of potential... please keep updating and adding to it. More ships, maybe a screen that allows you to view the current ship with the upgrades on it! More background scenes. More special weapons!!!
Come Back!!!!
by Flycotic on 2018/07/03 06:20
Please come back and update this app. It needs some lovin and fixes and more content. Been here since day 1 and love this game to death. I can’t bring myself to delete it
Lots of potential
by Lil N8TV on 2019/05/16 09:30
There’s a lot that can be added the game seems cut and dry and has been for a while, if they got onto adding different aspects to the game it would be much more interesting
Great but could be better
by oscarbman on 2018/04/27 06:50
This game is fun but it gets repetitive after a while. I like this game because of the story driven characters, but I wish Gemini Strike was way more story driven.
BIG PROBLEM
by Pig zombie on 2019/04/07 14:12
On the new iPhone XS Max the game doesn’t fill up the screen and there'sThea black bars at the top and bottom. When you move your ship over them it gets stuck. It completely messes up the game and causes you too die. Please fix.
I love this but...
by tripleA4321 :P on 2019/01/31 04:34
I really want a multiplayer mode and can you make the Black Friday sales cheaper? Pls
DEVS PLEASE FIX URGENT
by Ju_k1 on 2017/11/05 15:36
My facebook save isnt popping up! i cant find it anywhere and i had so much progress! please help!!!
Horrible update
by Jjc1347138 on 2017/10/04 19:40
Most recent update messes everything up. Constantly kicks or back to home screen, watching video to continue doesn't work ever for special missions/rarely for normal levels.
Chang it now
by Carson lujan on 2017/09/16 07:18
The bosses are to hard and I don't want to lose my progress change it now and the enemy missile do to much damage and are to fast and are hard to make them miss and go of the screen in I'm angry at you now change it
Garbage
by trapmaster.awebb on 2017/11/13 17:51
As you progress through the game it becomes more and more buggy. By the seventh level I would die before the first enemy even spawned and lose a life. Utterly terrible game
Amazing game
by hiliwaka Kill on 2018/06/27 13:22
So l love this game and won’t stop playing it (99%) off the day
Great game though
by Gaming Guy0239 on 2017/11/02 21:55
This is a great game but sometimes it can be a little to hard and the ads really get on my nerves please remove them so I can have a solid gameplay experience. :)
This is nothing but a cash grab
by Qwerty1976 on 2017/11/25 08:07
This is no more than a mediocre shooter. After 1 hour of play the game goes from easy to near impossible. Your lives are on a timer to manipulate you to spend money on lives. There’s so many better shooters out there that aren’t a cash grab: Phoenix 2 Time locker Sky Force (any version) Infinity gene Plasma sky ... to name a few.
Not A True RPG, And That’s Its Fatal Flaw
by Paradise Imminent on 2017/11/10 06:46
I had this game once before, but I wanted to try it again, to see if the issues previously discovered had been resolved. In a word: no. The capabilities of your ship are almost completely dependent on the stats attached to the armaments from the crates; if you want a better ship, it will require better loot. You can get crates in a number of ways, but to get the loot FROM the crates, you’ll have to spend the game’s currency - either gems or credits. If you obtain a crate without having the gems or credits to open it, you’ll have to either spend real money to get the amount you need, or abandon the crate, as if any crate not opened is destroyed. Even if you do obtain the loot from the crate, the stats attached are a complete jumble, unless it is rare-grade loot or higher, meaning that the loot you may want to use may not make your ship any more capable to survive. This will mean spending a good amount of time simply grinding for the loot that will have the stats to keep your ship intact for more than a couple of hits. To raise the stats on the loot you get? LOTS of gems; 3,850 of them, to be exact, to get even standard loot to their max level. Without the gem doubler (a in-game purchase), amassing that amount would take longer than it is worth. I have made it to sector 26 for the first time, but the grinding and spending of gems and credits in the hopes that an armament that I want will actually improve my ship, instead of just giving me a desired weapon to use, actually makes the ‘tons of items procedurally generated’ a negative thing; it would be better to simply have a shop that allows to purchase what you want, so you have more control over your ship’s stats/chance of survival, or have a level-up system on your ship itself, so that you have a chance of making it better in between all the crate obtaining/opening. *sigh* I’ve had enough... again. :-(
Abominable Space Shooter!
by AcEMaNz on 2018/03/15 12:02
I read some of the other reviews and I do not understand their complaints. It is shooter with RPG style stats. You can get credits and bounty quickly by completing bounty hunt missions and cargo missions which are plentiful. Once you save enough credits (which does not take long), you can unlock stronger ships. There are so many ships to choose from and they have a variety of special weapons and stat bonuses. Also, the reactors are powerful and are crucial for victory. The raid missions are fun and give you power cores which unlock some of the best ships in the game. The bounty hunt and cargo missions get progressively harder as you unlock more sectors so a good strategy is to play these missions early on to collect credits, bounty, ships, and rare items. Then once you become more powerful, beat a few more sectors, then play more of the side missions again so you can become even stronger. Repeat this process and you will progress throughout the game like a blood thirsty falcon. Visually, the game is stunning. The weapon effects are awesome, the sound is strong, and the gameplay is intense. The screen is always filled with a variety of unique and great looking enemy weapons. The bosses and their weapons are wild and their music is intense. Another great aspect in the game is the story line. The game contains dialogue throughout the entire campaign which is witty and entertaining, and the story itself is intriguing. The characters are well developed and interact in interesting manners. I am absolutely stunned by players saying that they couldn't get past the first 6-10 sectors. There are 100 sectors! I am equally as surprised by how many players said that the developers are greedy and how they force you to spend money to progress throughout the game. This is simply not true. The time it takes to collect credits and bounty is reasonable if you play both the campaign and side missions. Plus, you must get better items and ships as you progress throughout the game. It does not take too much time to get and upgrade items that will help you progress through the next few sectors. It takes a while to beat the entire game because there are so many missions and tiers of items. Whenever you do need to get better items, it does not take too long. The side missions are fun, change as you progress, and help you get better items and credits pretty quickly. Plus, the items get better and never get old because there are always new types of awesome stats and weapons. A smart strategy is too equip a combination of items and ships that have a chain-link effect (powerful stats that power other powerful stats). I don't mean to degrade these gamers, but I hope to get more people to understand the strategies needed to conquer this amazing game. I never had to grind much or spend money, and even though its challenging, I never got stuck on one level for a long time. More people would enjoy it if they would understand the proper strategies and appreciate the myriad of RPG style items. There are an incredible amount of amazing stats, weapons, and missions. How could you not enjoy this game? There are so many gameplay elements. The developers deserve more credit. This is the most underrated vertical shooter. Anyway, I love this game. It is perfect and no other vertical shooter is like it. I appreciate the compelling story line, awesome items and stats, myriad of ships and weapons, great sound and graphics, and very smooth gameplay mechanics. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
Back for the 3rd time
by Gamemasterinfinity on 2014/11/08 16:01
I'm back just wanted to say great game and I still think you should make these improvements: first make black market stuff cheaper maybe 1 credit. To even out the black market stuff being cheaper, you need to make the bounty hunts give you 1 credit, the cargo mission boxes need to be opened with gems and the daily reward turns into gems (at the end of the week the daily reward returns to 1 credit, but only if you collected the reward each day and only for 1 day). Not only should you make black market cargo cheaper you should also add new black market cargo, let me explain. Make more expensive cargo, but they must guarantee a certain type of item examples: cargo box that costs 1 credit guarantees a rare item, cargo box that costs 3 credits guarantee a super rare item ect. Also bounty hunts need be easier: remove the elites you have to battle. Also add a transfer market: where you can transfer credits into gems and vise versa. Also reduce the difficulty of some ships example: lazer beam support needs to lose the shield. Add an option where you can buy ships with gems (for those who spend a lot of credits and save a lot of gems) Finally add a multiplayer mode where it is pvp and coop.(player vs. player) and (cooperative battle). If you read till the end of this thank you and please add the ideas that you agree with to your review, so there will be a greater chance of these ideas getting used.
The greatest, most unique space shooter app
by abcforeverz on 2015/10/18 13:54
Love this game. I'll give it 5 stars. Some of my generally very mild complains and/or suggestions include the following: the background art of the stages always appear the same from one chapter to the next minus a change in color tint perhaps. Not too big of a deal. Then that seemingly unnecessary persistent connection that seems to be popular in so many apps these days. Bigger deal, still not the end of the world lol. Lastly, sometimes it won't connect at all, even when my internet connection is perfect, but this isn't that often, really. Offline play should be included, it's one of a few faults that modern apps are including these days almost universally, for whatever reason. Keep the updates coming PLEASE! Seems to have been awhile since a significant content update. Hope the developers haven't stopped progress in developing new content, unless they are working on a sequel coming soon of course then keep it up! lol. Anyway I love the game, very unique, many weapons, ships, stages, ongoing story that seems compelling Enough for me so far. I always wonder what's going to happen next. It's the perfect space shooter app out there in my opinion. If you enjoy such games, DEFINITELY get this app. Thank you for making this game as well developers! Keep up the great work and to all the players out there, happy hunting!
Low expectations initially
by djdeclan100 on 2015/04/11 18:52
I really didn't expect much from this game initially as I downloaded several other space shooter type games, re-initiating myself into the genre after many years break. It slowly has become more and more intriguing and I am hooked now. I am not a P2P or P2W gamer and like everyone else says, the game is very hard the first few nodes. I had to replay missions frequently in order to buy the crates and upgrade items. However, you get credits for getting past nodes and also for watching ads (which I kind of like), which on the weekends lets you watch an ad about once every hour. Once I got my first credit-purchased ship (the green one that shoots shot-gun rounds and self-heals) I quickly began advancing nodes (on 13 currently). The game mechanics are challenging, the storyline is actually pretty comedic and compelling, the secret missions are a great way to get lots of $ and rare crates at reduced rates, and the raid encounters are fun without being too hard. Plus other pilots join from time to time to help you, though I think they're AI controlled. I understand there are 100 levels so I am wondering if I can get through them all without getting burnt out but for now I'm holding strong. The only complaint is the game is glitchy sometimes and I have to perma-exit the game to fix it, but its a quick loading game.
Very unique. Great for those who are good at shooters
by Sscurry33 on 2014/10/13 21:16
This is one of the best top down shooters for the ios besides space invaders infinity gene. I love the unique style of this game as it combines a shooter with an rpg styled upgrade system. The graphics are nice too look at but can make it hard to tell whats going on at times. The added relative controls offer a better feel to the game and allow you to see the fighter instead of being covered by your thumb. The game can get frustrating at times, mainly at bosses that seem to be a little over powered. The game never manages to get too hard as over time you'll find better items, upgrade those items, and get better at dodging enemy fire. One specific feature I like and hope to be expanded upon is the surprise assistance from other players fighters. This not only makes the game more fun but gives a good reason to play as often as possible especially if you're stuck on a boss or level. I hope that a full multiplayer section will be made sooner or later, that would really make the game fun. The music is decent, I do like how the games music follows a main theme and fades into variations over time, It would be nice to have more themes that the game can use with the main theme during different sections and levels. I'd recommend this game to anyone who is in search of a new top down shooter to play. I know I'm happy with what I found.
Fun Game with Glaring Flaws
by TacoGuitarPlayer on 2014/09/07 20:05
This game is a really fun bullet hell game, but it has some twists thrown in which makes it frustrating. My biggest problems are the controls. They work fine, but since this is a bullet hell game and you use your finger to move around, it can block part of the screen making it hard to dodge. The game has a equipment screen where you can change out 4 pieces of equipment. That's cool and you can adjust to the mission you are about to take on. The problem is that they also increase your stats and need to be upgraded in order to be good, because otherwise you are flying a tin can which can't take a hit from any of the stronger enemies. In order to upgrade you need money, which you get from FINISHING missions. So if you are stuck on a level you can not gain any money and move forward. This means you have to go back to older worlds or do special missions. The problem with that is that those special missions are hard, and if you have one on a world you need to go back to, you are forced to play it in order to go back. This can make you lose a guy and now you have to wait 15 mins to get him back, and with 4 guys good luck grinding the money you need in order to advance. This game is a fun game with an interesting concept, just the mechanics work against each other to the games detriment. Please fix these problems and make this game something to remember in the bullet hell genre.
Fun, but needs some tweaking.
by ydarb10 on 2014/09/07 13:51
Really fun game, but I think a few things should be fixed/ changed. First off, the text in the star map and the ship hangar is black, as well as the pictures of your items and ship upgrades. Also, I think the game gets too hard too fast. It is nearly impossible to survive the third and fourth boss without paying for black market items or getting really lucky in a standard crate. Also I find the blockade missions VERY hard as well. I love the idea of the black market, but I think it should be expanded and have different kind of crates you can choose from. It would also be pretty cool if every 2 weeks or so there would be a new and super powerful ship upgrade in the black market. You would have to buy a special crate for 5 credits and there would be a 10% chance to get this special weapon upgrade. I think the credits are a bit too expensive. Only 2 for 2 dollars isn't worth it really. I think it should be 3 for 1 dollar. It gives you 3 life refills or 1 chance at a black market crate. Lastly, this game is very pay-2-win. The father you get into the game, the harder the levels get, but your ship does not get better. There is no way to get a good ship without paying for black market crates. Maybe a shop should be added so you can but rare items for an expensive amount of credits. Other than those issues, the game is really fun!
Absolutely love it, plenty of room for improvements
by LozzaPowuh on 2014/09/08 17:17
Gonna make this quick- the game is awesome, looks great, I haven't had any noticeable bugs as of writing this. This game has a lot potential, but it's still unpolished; black market stuff costs way too much (should be 1 credit, since it would mean an item per sector completed, instead of having it cost a dollar each), plasma weapons need to be toned down in damage, bosses need to have more designs, ships need to have personal upgrades (like upgrading the basic gun to have more shots, higher ROF, more speed, which would show on the ship so they would also be visible upgrades) there needs to be higher amounts of money gained from higher levels (I still earn roughly the same as I did in level 1 in level 7), there needs to be ships that can be bought with gems and you also need to be able to try their weapons and abilities out, there needs to be a shop for weapons and gear, items should have different upgrade paths, ships should be customizable, there needs to be a difficulty marker for each level, levels need to have a progress bar, missiles need to be destructible projectiles, and finally, give us different types of lasers like emp and plasma. If you read all of this you're a champ.
Love it
by Dandan237 on 2015/07/11 06:31
When I first saw it in the App Store I thought oh it's a space shooter and I thought to my self well there's other good space shooters I can get but this one look very good to play so I downloaded it and when I first played it, it was confusing at first but when life went on I started to get the hang of it and now I really like the game and wish there is more content in the future it's just the same thing over and over again go through the levels and defeat the boss I really wished that there was new modes to the game you can play and more easier ways to get credits and cores but it really is a fun game and should be put out there more with updates and new modes new boss like one idea a snak like battle ship boss or new ships and different types of weapons and meeting new people and also there should be a coop mode for up to 4 people and or raid boss mode where if you defeat the boss you can get cores or credits or different types of weapons as you go on and defeat the boss and also there should be different power ups and or different sectors with new people or even Nevermind I'm going a little bit crazy over this review but this isn't my game it's the creators game 😄
Repetitive.
by Cloudcompeller on 2015/11/06 22:14
For anybody to say this is the most unique game they've played would suggest they don't play many/any games. Certainly not the worst, but 60 chapters in and it's still the same. Same fire pattern, ships and background (minus a slight tint every so many chapters).Each chapter is broken into 6 levels with the 3rd always being a gauntlet to survive and the 6th being one of only a few bosses. On top of this repetition, the only way to realistically progress is to save up your "credits" to have a shot at better gear via the black market (or the bonus cargo missions for 1 less credit if you can make it through alive). From what I can tell, the best gear you can get outside of that is green quality. If it's even possible to get better via normal play, the rate is punishingly abysmal which sort of defeats replaying older levels to grind for it. All in all, it's a pretty solid game but it lacks steady or reliable progression. Would have worked better with a leveling system or a different system for gear. As it is, you can be stuck on a level with all 4 slots at level 5 and 50k gems to spend but no improved gear to upgrade and move on. Of course, if you spend money on IAPs you may have no problems but then what's the point if you pay to win.
Was great, but the update has some problems
by Gemini Pilot on 2014/09/09 11:56
I really enjoyed playing this game up until the most recent update (1.0.9, I believe). Everything was great, and more importantly, everything worked. Ever since I've installed the update, the game has been horrendously slow and had some weird moments. One of the most common occurrences is that when I'm fighting a boss or a miniboss, they just fly away and go off screen. I lose a life, and all of my progress through the level. It's kinda frustrating to be at the end of a level and the boss flies away, so all you can do is try to kill yourself with asteroids. I've had to do that a lot recently, and it gets tedious quickly. As for the massive slow down of the game, I have no idea. I just know that it takes my pilot a few seconds to follow my finger, and when he does, he either goes too far or not enough. Sometimes he even moves without my touching the screen! I do enjoy the game, and I'm sorry that I had to write a one star review. It was great, but the recent patch has made it completely unplayable. I'd be happy to come back and change it to five stars and talk about how I enjoy a bullet hell game having a plot and good music, but I need to be able to play it first. Thank you very much for your time, if you've read this far. I hope to see a fix sometime soon.
Love!
by Johnnieboyee on 2014/09/24 13:36
I love Gemini Strike!! Such a great game and actually challenging! I've missed that! But there are a couple things, the power-ups and the boss for the bounty hunt! I've been in the situation where I have the power up I want but then it gets switched for a really inopportune one! Like some power-ups are better for some situations, for example if there are too many enemies on screen, a burst or shock orb are awesome! But against a boss you're going to want missiles or plasma beam. I think that you should have to use your current power-up before another can come in, rather than any power up coming in and replacing your current one. Now, the boss of the bounty hunt! I consistently kill him off screen with missiles or a plasma ball and he'll drop all his gems off screen.( :/ ) I think the best way to solve this problem would be to do some sort of animation where he returns to his starting position before he explodes. Just some thoughts! I'm addicted to your game and I intend to play it until I complete it! Thank you for being great game producers!! It's five stars from me!
Meh...
by Scootzzs on 2014/10/10 17:57
It's fun for about 15 levels, until you hit a point where 99% of the upgrades are poorly itemized and don't come close to scaling with the difficulty. To make matters worse they recently increased the cost of upgrading items significantly, making progression even more difficult and frustrating. The boss fights are the same 3-4 models with the same 3-4 attacks every level, the only difference is the damage and rate of fire, which become impossible to evade & mitigate due to items poorly scaling with difficulty and only moderately responsive controls. You can buy Credits which can be used to purchase items, but again 99% of even these items will be discarded/sold as they are also poorly itemized and don't scale to the difficulty. The story line is abysmal and should be removed. It also pauses the game with no warning during mid-combat (not during an intermission, transition, or beginning/end of a level) by opening a window in the middle of the screen. If you want decent shooter to keep you busy for a few hours, or don't mind re-playing the first 12 levels over and over, than this games for you. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend. I'll be shelving this one hoping they make some significant changes, but if not if not it's getting deleted.
Major Issues, Bugs, Etc.
by damanky on 2014/09/07 10:32
First of all, very fun game in it's core essence. But my god, is it truly an incomplete game. Literally NONE of the items, ships, inventory menus work (including the game map). They all render a BLACK BOX. Completely useless - you must click on an item in your inventory to even see what it is. This is definitely a bug, and over site in testing. Your inventory simply does not show any items, and it looks like an empty inventory until you try to check on the "empty" inventory spaces. The ship particles are distracting, as well as the ship placement beneath your thumb. Could use HUGE bug fixes and improvement, if fixed - the game would be a super fun shoot em up space shooter with enjoyable gameplay, but otherwise entirely broken and worthless. Note after playing more; this game is really just monetized for making the dev's money. It's ridiculously hard to beat the second "real" boss, truly took me a week with the 4 lives an hour (or whatever) limit. Honestly, I love hack n slash and shoot em up games, my favorite genre of games to play ... But this game is truly a waste of time. I am disappointed in Armor Games for distributing this. Not worth the download or play-time past 5 minutes.
Very fun, addicting shooter
by Sykezzzzzzz on 2015/08/25 04:34
I had low expectations... I found this game on a whim...used to play Sky Force for a similar game, but this game is a lot better. It's surprisingly deep and challenging. The item hunt aspect ads a lot of replay value to it and a sort of dungeon crawler feel. You always get excited when you find some cargo and unlock it to find out whats inside. The game is very challenging...by the 6th or 7th world i found myself franticallt darting around the screen trying to avoid missles and stuff...the graphics are a good blend of oldschool with some colorful backgrounds and effects. The sound effects and music are also very good. Good to play with headphones. The RPG elements come in the form of upgrading items, ans combining 4 different gear slots with custom ships that also have unique abilities...its surprisingly deep and satisfying yet also still simple enough to play in small spurts and still make progress. I also found its easy enough to progress without spending any real life money. I occasionally hit a wall, and have to play through a previous world or two again to earn money to upgrade my items more, but so far its never been tedious or excessive. I usually get one or two more upgrades and then get back to progressing further in the game. I am not in Sector 11 and still having fun. Random challenges and events spawning on the map in precious sectors ad variety and challenge as well. Great game guys, hopw u continue to update it!
Best game Ive played on mobile
by Skittlez0304 on 2015/05/24 13:49
So I had been searching for a spaceship arcade shooter for a while, I played Galaxy On Fire 2 for so many hours and I'm a huge fan of space sims on PC like Elite Dangerous so I downloaded this game with a number of others and this one by far was the most fun. It's polished, the mechanics are easy to understand, the storyline while pretty cheesy with the dialogue is compelling enough so that I know Im playing FOR something. The paid currency is also pretty easy to get in game through daily quests like bounty hunts or just by beating the regular bosses or watching ads. The game is really fun to play and I recommend this to everyone. Oh! I almost forgot the visuals are stunning. While the backgrounds can be a bit lack-luster that's not really what you're looking at most of the time. The retro graphics and crazy cool particle effects combines with the explosions just make the game feel so active and alive.
Okay game with lots of potential
by Helryx on 2014/09/08 10:15
I love the shooting and dodging aspect of the game and the graphics are really unique. The dialogue is super witty and overall it's pretty fun. However, there's something's that could make it better. First off, it's annoying that if you want to turn on the online settings you have to reset the whole game. Second, whenever you get a cargo box, you should have the option of selling it because 90% of the time I have to ignore a hard earned box. Third, show the ships in the store in action so you can tell what they do, because otherwise you buy one and realize it's actually pretty bad. In addition, why do you have to lose progress in a sector if you start a different one? It's kind of annoying when I wanna earn some money and I have to do all the missions again and again. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to choose what items I get, instead of randomly opening a box, getting a crappy item and wasting a credit. This game has big potential, but it needs work.
Hell yes!
by greenfrigate on 2015/05/21 01:12
I initially thought this game wouldn't be much. However, upon starting it, I became hooked, and the feeling progressed much more as the story continued. It has an intriguing storyline, and the gameplay is fun. The credits are hard to get, but worth it in the end. The black market and cargo boxes make it suspenseful in what type of special item you will get. The different ships and items allow anyone to customize the ship to fit their fighting style. I have finished the entire game (beat sector 100), and also love the fact that you can reset your data on a facebook connected account, and still come back later if you want. The only thing I would suggest is to make golden cargo boxes easier to obtain, I'm on sector 100 and have not found a single one. Also, make the items better higher up. I've seen people with triple plasma chainers on sector 29, and can't find a single one myself.
I don't always review but...Let's be objective
by iphone_ralliartist on 2015/03/01 13:14
Let me start with this. Yes, the game is not easy. You will lose a lot until you get better and get items. That's part of the RPG element which is in the game title. It's either you play games like this or are used to being spoonfed with angry birds type of games. I've read many reviews saying the Devs "jacked" up the difficulty for people to spend money and that its P2W. Right now I'm at Sector 5.1 with the first ship, all items that are found in the stages and no premium currency bought. Yes, you have to go to the first sector and replay all the stages to get gems to upgrade the items. After that you need to get better at fighting. The game is pretty good in terms of graphics and sound. The controls could be better. The story is on the "comedy" side. The game reminds me of the R-type games and nintendo era difficulty. Defenitively would recommend.
Great game! Here's some ideas to make it better!
by Raizuji on 2014/09/26 18:18
First, why can't we choose our power ups? That would be a lot more helpful to save power ups for certain situations. Add more power ups too like a shield or something. Second, why can't we choose a specific level. To rerun a level you have to go back to the sector and play stages in order to reach the stage you want. I like the asteroids but I can't just click on the stage after I beat it, I have to rerun an entire sector. Third, if possible, make this multiplayer. I like the ally ship that helps you out but i would like it more if it has a mind of its own. Playing with a friend in this game could be really fun. No split screen though because that's just wont do for this game. Allow for another iPhone to connect to same stage and you guys can see each other on your own screen like how you see that AI allies when they help you.
Great game but glitches are frustrating.
by BoLoFan4evah on 2014/09/15 00:55
I have been enjoying this game greatly and have made in-app purchases, but have been frustrated recently. When you die mid-mission, you have the option to respawn immediately (for a credit, the premium currency) rather than try the level over. When you spend the credit and respawn, you are momentarily stuck in place with a couple seconds of invulnerability, but the invuln doesn't kick in immediately, so most of the time you're almost dead by the time you can move. Also, on the time-released bounty hunt missions, several times I have killed the boss, and will die immediately after the boss suffers the killing blow, and am not offered a chance to respawn for a credit although the mission says it is a success, so that beautiful royal cargo just floats out there in space and cannot be collected. Super frustrating. Other than that, excellent game and will be playing for quite a while.
Good.
by Cloudcompeller on 2015/10/15 19:04
The biggest downfall of this game and others like it, is the whole finger over the playing area. There's just so much going on and having your finger blocking anything is bad. Not much to do to counter this however besides a control area separate from the action, which would just further reduce the play area. IAPs aren't forced, but you do hit essentially a pay wall. The only other way around this is to repeatedly do earlier levels and hope for better gear and in-game currency to upgrade said gear. This problem along side limited lives that replenish on a timer is why I give it only 3/5. I understand the need for IAPs on a freemium game, but it doesn't make it less frustrating. If it's a grinder, don't limit lives so that I can continuously play when I'm on standby or off work and grind away. The IAPs will still appeal to those not wanting to put in the effort. In short, charge up front for the game, remove lives and still offer IAPs for those that don't wish to grind.
Good game
by Jase S on 2014/09/15 14:39
Gemini Strike is a pretty fun game, but it has a few problems. First, it doesn't scale well. The enemies become progressively stronger, however you don't. The items you receive (through missions, bounties, and via credit purchases) are underwhelming and barely help after a certain point. Even the Super Rare items are inadequate. The item lottery is also seemingly working against you. More often than not you weak or outdated items compared to what you need to just survive--much less out-damage the enemies. And that's in reference to the rare and super rare items. Second, the game itself becomes unavoidably difficult. As you progress, enemies gain the ability to fire EMP weapons, which disables your ship for two seconds. It's a nice challenge, except when half of the screen is filled with EMP shots and many of them can follow your ship (missiles and chains). So after a certain point, you come to a level where you will be chain stunned for several seconds until you die. One shot is all it takes, and there are a few dozen EMP shots coming at you. So far, I haven't found a practical mechanism to mitigate this. Anyway, despite these problems, the game is still rather fun. The story is interesting too. I've written this review since I'm finished with the game. I haven't completed it yet, I've just reached a point where I feel the amount of time I'm putting into grinding and playing isn't paying off or helping me progress.
Seems people are having trouble with the item section glitch
by The Brain Doktor on 2014/09/23 00:55
Allow me to put all your concerns to rest and make you filthy rich(with gems at least). After upgrading an item as far as you want it, quickly go back to the main menu, as theres some kind of error with the upgrade system. Second, when you upgrade something to level 4, click the button to upgrade again but don't try upgrading, just wait for a minute. You will get an error message, click cancel and your item will be back to the previous level, but if you look to your gems you'll notice there are 400 more than when you started. Repeat and enjoy infinite gems for as long as it lasts. This makes collecting cargo on the actual levels a lot more fun as you can actually afford to open them and get a chance at free rare gear I love this game so much!
Eh
by Wupaku! on 2014/09/08 21:00
I'm a little jaded going into this review, because my last experience with this game is downright frustrating. The controls are mediocre, the storyline is cheesy, and so far it's just one of those games that makes you feel as if forking over your wallet is the only way to get anywhere. Needless to say I did not finish it. Nevertheless it has it's qualities. Gameplay itself is smooth even in the graphically intense bits, and even my iPad 2 can appreciate the thoughtful programming behind this game. It takes a different approach to online coop than most games, it's difficult to explain, but the game is free, and I'll leave you to your opinions on that. Overall I didn't think it was worth 4 or 5 stars because I don't feel that the only way to justify in-app purchases is through insanely difficult gameplay within a few minutes of playing, and the controls just aren't intuitive enough. I will rewrite my review after an update, although I don't expect very many changes.
Awesome game
by erlose on 2014/10/25 06:31
This is a fun game if you like shoot em ups. But if you're like me and like to play games to finish the story this will be disappointing because of how hard it is to advance to the next sector. There are a couple things that should be worked on. Sectors become increasingly harder than the previous ones and it doesn't take long to make cool new upgrades obsolete. Adding another equip slot or two would help with getting through levels without spending a ridiculous amount of money for credits that wont even guarantee to unlock a good item. I've spent ~$15 to try and unlock cargo that could help me get through a few levels but even if i do get lucky and land a sweet item it quickly becomes useless against the huge amount of damage and life next sector enemies have and because if this im not spending another dime for credits. I definitely think this game should have a story mode and challenge mode. The story mode (something not as hard as the game is now) being for people who like to casually play good games and finish the story and challenge mode for the more hardcore gamers. Please also fix the logging out issues. Any time i complete a level and pick up random cargo i'll go and see what i got and when i go to play another level it logs me out and says i've been logged into another device which doesnt make sense because i only play this on my phone. If its any help im playing on an iphone 5 ios 8.1
Great game
by 60thchip on 2015/06/01 22:13
I love it, it's so much fun, so colorful and so lively, I just get confused every once in a wile cause half the time I can't comprehend witch lasers/rockets I'm suppose to avoid, but other than that Iv never seen someone I can friend request, most of the time no one has an active profile I can friend, I play as a guest but have the data save option activated, I don't know if it's because I'm not connected to Facebook (witch I refuse to do) or if no one really has an active account, other than that, i started a new game after re downloading (played a year ago and it won't let me redeem my last game even though it is saved in Game Center) and it seemed to become 10X harder, I had to restart the story mode a few times just to get past the first boss If you get past the intense difficultly of the first few levels and wait a few days to earn credits, buy a ship and the game gets extremely enjoyable

Don’t understand the negative reviews
by Crimsonted on 2019/05/22 17:46
Best space shooter game you can find. Absolutely ZERO need for purchases.
Lots of potential
by Lil N8TV on 2019/05/16 09:30
There’s a lot that can be added the game seems cut and dry and has been for a while, if they got onto adding different aspects to the game it would be much more interesting
BIG PROBLEM
by Pig zombie on 2019/04/07 14:12
On the new iPhone XS Max the game doesn’t fill up the screen and there'sThea black bars at the top and bottom. When you move your ship over them it gets stuck. It completely messes up the game and causes you too die. Please fix.
Very good
by SurpriseFluffyKitty on 2019/03/19 23:21
Reminds me of Sky Force Reloaded, although it's pretty different, and the story's actually pretty engaging. Unfortunately, as thing's get harder, the pacing suffers, but that's not enough to give it a bad score. EDIT: So I’ve noticed a “bug” perhaps. When you exit out of the game and come back in, the bounty, cargo, and raid missions are all instantly generated. This definitely makes it easier to accrue things, but...I have to wonder...is it TOO easy...?
I love this but...
by tripleA4321 :P on 2019/01/31 04:34
I really want a multiplayer mode and can you make the Black Friday sales cheaper? Pls
How to still enjoy
by glevan98 on 2019/01/21 17:51
People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.
Come Back!!!!
by Flycotic on 2018/07/03 06:20
Please come back and update this app. It needs some lovin and fixes and more content. Been here since day 1 and love this game to death. I can’t bring myself to delete it
Amazing game
by hiliwaka Kill on 2018/06/27 13:22
So l love this game and won’t stop playing it (99%) off the day
Great but could be better
by oscarbman on 2018/04/27 06:50
This game is fun but it gets repetitive after a while. I like this game because of the story driven characters, but I wish Gemini Strike was way more story driven.
Could be better
by JNutter3006 on 2018/04/07 21:39
The game is difficult. It’s not an impossible “you lost a mission so it’s game over” but it is difficult. I would love a function where we can keep our “cargo” from mission until we can open them. It’s annoying to survive through one, only to find out I don’t have the credits or cubes to open the cargo. Good game, worth it if you have patience! -J
So much fun
by Awesome kingdomrush game!!!277 on 2018/03/21 02:14
Lots of potential... please keep updating and adding to it. More ships, maybe a screen that allows you to view the current ship with the upgrades on it! More background scenes. More special weapons!!!
Abominable Space Shooter!
by AcEMaNz on 2018/03/15 12:02
I read some of the other reviews and I do not understand their complaints. It is shooter with RPG style stats. You can get credits and bounty quickly by completing bounty hunt missions and cargo missions which are plentiful. Once you save enough credits (which does not take long), you can unlock stronger ships. There are so many ships to choose from and they have a variety of special weapons and stat bonuses. Also, the reactors are powerful and are crucial for victory. The raid missions are fun and give you power cores which unlock some of the best ships in the game. The bounty hunt and cargo missions get progressively harder as you unlock more sectors so a good strategy is to play these missions early on to collect credits, bounty, ships, and rare items. Then once you become more powerful, beat a few more sectors, then play more of the side missions again so you can become even stronger. Repeat this process and you will progress throughout the game like a blood thirsty falcon. Visually, the game is stunning. The weapon effects are awesome, the sound is strong, and the gameplay is intense. The screen is always filled with a variety of unique and great looking enemy weapons. The bosses and their weapons are wild and their music is intense. Another great aspect in the game is the story line. The game contains dialogue throughout the entire campaign which is witty and entertaining, and the story itself is intriguing. The characters are well developed and interact in interesting manners. I am absolutely stunned by players saying that they couldn't get past the first 6-10 sectors. There are 100 sectors! I am equally as surprised by how many players said that the developers are greedy and how they force you to spend money to progress throughout the game. This is simply not true. The time it takes to collect credits and bounty is reasonable if you play both the campaign and side missions. Plus, you must get better items and ships as you progress throughout the game. It does not take too much time to get and upgrade items that will help you progress through the next few sectors. It takes a while to beat the entire game because there are so many missions and tiers of items. Whenever you do need to get better items, it does not take too long. The side missions are fun, change as you progress, and help you get better items and credits pretty quickly. Plus, the items get better and never get old because there are always new types of awesome stats and weapons. A smart strategy is too equip a combination of items and ships that have a chain-link effect (powerful stats that power other powerful stats). I don't mean to degrade these gamers, but I hope to get more people to understand the strategies needed to conquer this amazing game. I never had to grind much or spend money, and even though its challenging, I never got stuck on one level for a long time. More people would enjoy it if they would understand the proper strategies and appreciate the myriad of RPG style items. There are an incredible amount of amazing stats, weapons, and missions. How could you not enjoy this game? There are so many gameplay elements. The developers deserve more credit. This is the most underrated vertical shooter. Anyway, I love this game. It is perfect and no other vertical shooter is like it. I appreciate the compelling story line, awesome items and stats, myriad of ships and weapons, great sound and graphics, and very smooth gameplay mechanics. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
Amazing Game
by Wudhdjakdkddu on 2018/03/03 20:28
This is one of this most challenging space shooting game I’ve played. It’s very fast paced, and CHALLENGING. But it has one flaw, the way to get credit is very hard. I know that you are able to watch an ad for extra credit, but those come very rarely. Overall, very amazing game, very challenging too, but credit is hard to come by.
This is nothing but a cash grab
by Qwerty1976 on 2017/11/25 08:07
This is no more than a mediocre shooter. After 1 hour of play the game goes from easy to near impossible. Your lives are on a timer to manipulate you to spend money on lives. There’s so many better shooters out there that aren’t a cash grab: Phoenix 2 Time locker Sky Force (any version) Infinity gene Plasma sky ... to name a few.
Garbage
by trapmaster.awebb on 2017/11/13 17:51
As you progress through the game it becomes more and more buggy. By the seventh level I would die before the first enemy even spawned and lose a life. Utterly terrible game
Great game + graphics
by CoruscantII on 2017/11/10 20:45
Graphics in this game are amazing and gameplay is really fun too, especially in higher levels, however I didn't really like the story mode or campaign part. Mostly kept going back through levels after I had completed the campaign, as that's what is more fun in my opinion..
Not A True RPG, And That’s Its Fatal Flaw
by Paradise Imminent on 2017/11/10 06:46
I had this game once before, but I wanted to try it again, to see if the issues previously discovered had been resolved. In a word: no. The capabilities of your ship are almost completely dependent on the stats attached to the armaments from the crates; if you want a better ship, it will require better loot. You can get crates in a number of ways, but to get the loot FROM the crates, you’ll have to spend the game’s currency - either gems or credits. If you obtain a crate without having the gems or credits to open it, you’ll have to either spend real money to get the amount you need, or abandon the crate, as if any crate not opened is destroyed. Even if you do obtain the loot from the crate, the stats attached are a complete jumble, unless it is rare-grade loot or higher, meaning that the loot you may want to use may not make your ship any more capable to survive. This will mean spending a good amount of time simply grinding for the loot that will have the stats to keep your ship intact for more than a couple of hits. To raise the stats on the loot you get? LOTS of gems; 3,850 of them, to be exact, to get even standard loot to their max level. Without the gem doubler (a in-game purchase), amassing that amount would take longer than it is worth. I have made it to sector 26 for the first time, but the grinding and spending of gems and credits in the hopes that an armament that I want will actually improve my ship, instead of just giving me a desired weapon to use, actually makes the ‘tons of items procedurally generated’ a negative thing; it would be better to simply have a shop that allows to purchase what you want, so you have more control over your ship’s stats/chance of survival, or have a level-up system on your ship itself, so that you have a chance of making it better in between all the crate obtaining/opening. *sigh* I’ve had enough... again. :-(
DEVS PLEASE FIX URGENT
by Ju_k1 on 2017/11/05 15:36
My facebook save isnt popping up! i cant find it anywhere and i had so much progress! please help!!!
Great game though
by Gaming Guy0239 on 2017/11/02 21:55
This is a great game but sometimes it can be a little to hard and the ads really get on my nerves please remove them so I can have a solid gameplay experience. :)
Still sad
by Guy65746 on 2017/10/29 15:23
I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.
Could be a great game but,
by _Sir Cool_ on 2017/10/26 14:57
It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.
Fantastic
by Ur-Procyon on 2017/10/24 01:48
One of the best shoot'em up games available today. It has everything a proper space drama fan could ask for. Modern yet classical UI, nostalgia inducing pixel designs, heart-pumping physics engine, engaging characters and storyline, great variety of ships and upgrades that prevents the game from becoming stale... It's magnificent.
Horrible update
by Jjc1347138 on 2017/10/04 19:40
Most recent update messes everything up. Constantly kicks or back to home screen, watching video to continue doesn't work ever for special missions/rarely for normal levels.
Chang it now
by Carson lujan on 2017/09/16 07:18
The bosses are to hard and I don't want to lose my progress change it now and the enemy missile do to much damage and are to fast and are hard to make them miss and go of the screen in I'm angry at you now change it
Abandoned game don't bother
by Kermit007 on 2017/08/15 02:35
Developer wiped out all paid for content, requires purchase again, now is an ad after almost every mission which winds up crashing the game. Used to be an awesome game and now just greedy dev trying to squeeze every penny out of a game while dropping features. Amazing game before and just trash now.
Idek
by coolstreet on 2017/08/01 06:50
How did this get on my purchased list? I've never seen this game before, much less downloaded ir
Too many adds! Please remove!
by True_Gamer 135 on 2017/07/16 17:56
Gemini Strike is a great game with fantastic graphics and gameplay. This was one of my favorite games, that was until adds were introduced. Half of the game is spent watching adds, and every other time one closes, the game freezes with a gray screen, and forces me to force close the app. Not to mention, multiplayer and PVP should be added to the game. Without adds, I would definitely rate this game 5 stars. Please take into account what I have said. It would be such a shame to see such an amazing game ruined by adds.
Eh...
by Masterjakefinn on 2017/06/24 05:25
It's ok I hate the ads thought good idea and fun
Last update removed data
by Zcy01 on 2017/06/06 15:55
I lost all my in app purchases and progression with the removal of the social tabs because that is how my account progress was saved. I should get a refund or a credit. Other than that the game would be more addicting if it wasn't so repetitive.
Stupid Ads Ruined Everything
by K.R.S_1 on 2017/06/06 02:43
This was a fun and addictive classic arcade shooter with a cool story, great graphics and sweet weapons. Now there are stupid ads that pop up after every level every time and when you try to skip them it turns the screen black and you have to force quit. What a pathetic shame to ruin such a unique game.
Enjoyable
by Seat flames on 2017/06/04 02:54
This is a favorite of mine.
Coming Back
by Random-w-LoL on 2017/05/27 15:01
I honestly gave up on this game even though it was really fun to me when it was first released. And this last update said it "no longer requires internet connection to play" which really was the only thing holding me back. So I'm glad to see one of my favorite bullet hell games once again!
Huh
by StreetKing: Lionhawk on 2017/05/25 00:00
Thought this game was abandoned guess not. It's a good game.
One of my favorites
by Canthor on 2017/05/24 03:35
I really enjoy this game, and consider it and Isotope my favorite spaceship games on iOS.
Well thought out.
by Abe Lever on 2017/05/06 21:12
It seems as though this was a thought out game with the level ups and so forth. I like that you can go back to easier levels to sort of build up your abilities before moving on.
update thissss
by Frupfrut on 2017/04/26 14:21
i love this game but it needs new features and stuff
Update?
by Vantady 12/19 on 2017/04/15 00:07
I really love this game and have been playing it for a few years but the servers seem to be down for the game ): . Although I can play on offline mode, I'd rather continue my progress online. I hope to see the developer(s) return to this game and update it
Update
by Danny"A" on 2017/03/30 23:31
Plz make the app compatible with new iOS
Work in progress... maybe?
by Minecraftfreak91 on 2017/03/29 13:10
This game has a lot of potential there are soooo many glitches in this game and it can be extremely frustrating. Another reason this game gets two stars is you could barely call this game a "freemium game" as it's nearly impossible to get a good collection pace of the premium currency. (Boooooooo and shame on the developers!). Lastly I've been playing for about a while and it's not had a single update the entire time
Good!
by 😨😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 on 2017/03/18 01:06
It's a very good game got to say but I think you could make it a bit easier yeah! Ok.
Great
by PapaOink on 2017/02/01 00:27
It's a great game no words
Fun game almost perfect
by Demonicflash on 2017/01/29 00:15
The game itself is great except that it is frustrating having to wait 15 min for extra lives when you die.
Best RPG and iOS game
by Abe Lares on 2017/01/23 19:29
This game is a really great I love it, it's an RPG space shooter. All I have to say it's a great experience for me, also it's challenging!
Best space shooter I've found. Keep comin back to it.
by Kingjoshua45 on 2017/01/18 20:40
Nice balance. Fun and still challenging. Like the weapon system. Haven't spent very much money and didn't need to spend that just did.
SUPER FUN!!
by Pseudospectrin on 2017/01/17 15:08
I play this thing literally too much. It's Galaga on crack! It can be a bit difficult at times but is very exhilarating and action packed. My only con is that you have to wait a while if you run out of lives. Other than that. I love this game!!
Meh
by Ngilman18 on 2017/01/11 16:56
Is ok but the secret missions should be easier or if you die you keep the money because I used a lot of lives only to get nothing
Y?
by Brasif on 2016/12/01 20:53
Why on earth is it necessary for this game to be only available when online?
BEST MOBILE GAME PLOT
by PRXYMTY STRKE on 2016/11/29 06:14
Everything was beautiful in the game, graphics, plot and equipment. However, as you got nearer to finishing, the game was very monotone and had little challenge. Also there is a minor bug on the very last sector that makes you go back to the beginning of the sector after you finished it. FYI sector 100
Great
by uncles warm touch on 2016/11/24 03:34
So much fun. I really wish they'd keep adding to it. The purple reactor is the best!
Great game, didn't like lives system
by LelGamer300 on 2016/11/10 05:35
The game is addictive, well-made and thought out. It is easy to pick up and entertains for hours-until your lives run out. I didn't like the fact that once you die, you have to wait 15 minutes to play again. It may not seem long, but once you encounter harder levels, it becomes a pain to not be able to try over and over again. This feature disappointed me as it is pretty obvious that it was made to get money. In order to refill lives, a player pays in a valuable virtual currency that has a freakishly similar value to real money. The game itself is fun and well made. I wouldn't really call it an RPG, but it certainly has some elements of one. The beautiful art and zero ads make it a likeable game overall. I would recommend the game, but expect to pay some money-just to play it.
Not bad, but game is dead
by Fukmonkey on 2016/11/08 04:34
I played & beat this game about a year ago, but have been farming the boss battles. As of 2 weeks ago or so, the game erased my data. It won't connect, & tells me to create a new nickname. I believe this gave is now dead & should be removed from the App Store. Also yes, the developers never bothered to fix the glitch in the final cutscene.
There is no "p2w wall"
by Powersbehind on 2016/11/06 20:25
Yea great game but slightly repetitive, I played this game in the beginning when it came out and finished all the 600 total levels with out paying. It's really not that hard but it's pretty fun when you are able to get new ships and such
My game won't work anymore
by 👻🤖👽☁️🛰 on 2016/11/02 21:59
This game is great but there is one problem. The problem is whenever I try to play this game it asks me to create a nickname and when I press ok it says error! This game is really great but I can not play it anymore thanks to this! Please fix this thank you
Fun...
by 12Stonesfan on 2016/10/24 23:17
But hasn't connected for days. The developers facebook page is inactive, so no way to report problems.
Awesome sauce
by 8ty5ive on 2016/10/10 11:46
Very addictive
Great old school-like shooter
by musesearch on 2016/10/10 00:46
Great game. Shooter in the old arcade vertical shooter mode Many ships and weapons to earn. Even a little story. But the last bit of story or dialogue to wrap up the game will not play! Just disappears! Lost a star for that. Can someone at Armor Games explain themselves?
5 stars.
by JasonNashJr on 2016/10/09 20:57
Love it.
Best game I've ever played on ios
by Apples8404 on 2016/08/18 08:34
Beat the game. Absolutely loved it. Really want you guys to expand the storyline. It doesn't have to end at 100.6. Keep it going! I was a completely free to play player and was able to progress all the way through the game in just a few weeks. The skill cap is very high and not for the faint of heart. New ships, weapons, and an expanded storyline could really increase the life of this game. I want more!!!
Plz remove or add more lives
by Jccj013 on 2016/08/02 22:33
hello creators if your reading this plz eemove or add more lives this game is very fun but i cant play it all the time because oof the lives i die all the time in these kind of games and four lives are not enough so plz if you see this plz add more lives or remove them.
Great game!
by Sir_Theori1527 on 2016/07/29 14:12
Very well made and a ton of fun to play. Good job!
Mhm I like it,no no love it!
by Pkskdndbdbfjf on 2016/07/26 07:39
Yes!Good...well everything!
Like it
by klen0929 on 2016/07/16 01:46
My childhood favorite! I miss galaca game :)
Its an ok game.
by Rentaroli on 2016/07/06 15:55
I was stuck on level 2.6 for the logest time, and was about to give up on it and delete the game, but then I survived the boss with 1 health and I was so happy :D
Huge Fun Factor!
by Jiminix83 on 2016/07/01 06:16
A lot of useless items that end up being sold for a huge loss. Story line's pretty cheesy. It is a lot of fun to play though. Beautiful graphics!
Great game but....
by Ren873642 on 2016/06/24 22:40
I think it's a great game but the fact that you have to wait until you get more lives really stinks. I would have given it a five star rating if you didn't have to wait to play again.
One word "FUN"
by Alex1joy on 2016/06/01 19:16
A total gem! This game has a great soundtrack and sound effects. It has comedy within the cut scenes which was unexpected. The comedy gives the game personality. It is well scripted and gameplay is excellent. This is one of the best games I have ever played...it reminds me of Super Nintendo and that is saying a lot. Good job!
Fun, Addictive, Creative and A Bit Unfair
by Jjvjtfchgvg on 2016/05/28 17:47
I am a big fan of top-down shooters. When I saw this one I had to just try it out. I like the creative story line and also the fact that I can put the silly disgusting name as the pilot and read it every time they see my name. Hee hee. The game gets a little unfair because you have such little energy to take hits from the bad guys. Whereas they have thousands and thousands and thousands of points that you have to keep smack him around until they blow up. All in all it is a very fun game. It's a free game! Download it.
Eh
by Jakombi on 2016/05/26 07:26
Pretty fun overall. I like it.
Very disappointed in last level
by Fjjssod11 on 2016/05/25 12:55
After you beat the last level 100.6 nothing special happens at and they bring you back to 100.1. This happened to me twice already. I wish I never started this game. Maybe they're doing this so people continue to buy. Wish I never started it honestly.
Great game!
by Air0110 on 2016/05/21 17:37
This game has great graphics, and scaling difficulty based on level which adds to the challenge. Have been playing for a couple years now and they have fixed many glitches and added to the story through lvl 100.6. Difficulty levels off after about lvl 50.. saved up for better ship after that. Play previous levels to earn credits to enhance weapons. I never payed a penny and fairly easily beat bosses after sector 70 once my weapons were upgraded. Use black market to buy better cargo. Can't wait to see the next update to add more levels past 100.6! Keep it going!
Best. Game. Hands. Down
by sunofgun on 2016/05/20 00:27
At first I was like what is this? But then the game took me in its muscular arms and hoisted me to the heavens and showed me what a game could really be. Ever since I've been changed 😂😂
Great game
by Rikyyrick on 2016/05/16 21:55
I don't ever write reviews but this is a great game. Wonderfully challenging but not impossible. This has kept my attention for a couple weeks now.
Awesome
by Allc1865 on 2016/04/25 02:37
Awesome game
Solid all around great game
by Anwerthedamnquestion on 2016/04/23 17:50
The game is amazing. Even the glitches are amazing. You can actually get credits off of glitches and this is a problem I personally dont want them to fix. Only thing I can conplain about is the void bomb, a rare weapon most people dont get or dont use. If you could just make it so that it fires and explodes at an exact distance no matter what (like a grenade launcher) that would be great. Because sometimes Im attacking a cargo ship and it fires and kills me and the cargo ship. Also dont make it fire during blockades and asteroid missions please.
Needs some Tweaks
by XxGamefreckxX on 2016/04/22 21:55
Shields need nerfing they should take damage as they deploy Example Green-Healthy Light green- slightly damaged Yellow-Damaged Red-Warning Also regular crates should have increased rarity drops
Great game!!!!
by MegaDrMonsterMan on 2016/04/08 04:11
I love this game! It's free and very fun to upgrade your ship and earn new ships. Much better than some of the other space pilot games I've played recently. You either have to be a crazy skilled pilot or spend your time getting rare items to make your ship better. Great way to pass the time.
Wow, what the heck?!?
by Prefektt on 2016/03/31 04:27
You've gotta be kidding me. This game is no longer fun to and is now just complete garbage. After deleting the game for space, there was no option to keep the game on game center. After reinstalling the app, I lost ALL OF MY PROGRESS and was around sector 40 - 50. I lost ALL MY SHIPS, even after restoring my purchases, it did nothing. Did I just get scammed? Yes, I spent money on this game. Now, all the money I spent on the game is gone. And the time I spent playing this game was wasted and nothing came of it. I am VERY UPSET, ESPECIALLY after spending money and not getting my stuff back. Wouldn't recommend if you will just end up deleting in the future. Thank you so much for wasting my time and money, Armor Games.
Sweet game!
by Badness2002:P on 2016/03/25 19:17
Loads of fun. Interesting story plot. Would recommend to everyone
Amazing
by Hunterkiwi on 2016/03/20 23:42
This game is just amazing. It's one of the best mobile games I've played in a while that has a story behind it. I'll start with the graphics. The retro like style is so nostalgic yet new. The flow of the animation is so smooth and constant as well and I've never had to deal with and rendering. Moving on to the play style of the game. It's an arcade style shoot em up in space. Now you can go through many different levels and worlds and even replay old levels. The characters are so well developed and fluent that it feels so surreal. You can also select from a wide range of ships and find new upgrades. The only problem I have is the virtual forcing of purchasing. You'll need to purchase credits for ships or parts sooner or later or it'll be nearly impossible to progress any further. Though I have made purchases, that won't stop me from enjoying this beautifully crafted game.
Pretty good but...
by MinecraftPro129 on 2016/03/16 23:00
This game is really good, well made and extremely fun. But once you find EMPs it goes downhill. Once you hit one you go slow and get hit by everything at least when you're facing a boss or mini boss ship. Also, it takes a long time to earn the orange credits it should be alot easier. Other then that its a pretty good game.
Best Game for Free
by Juberymo on 2016/03/13 06:22
Very fun and exciting. Only gets better as you upgrade you ships and weapons, recommend to anyone!
Veeeery good
by Random dude XD on 2016/03/08 02:23
Very good game, reminds me of the difficult japanese games of this type and resembles it in a good way. Thought its hard and i would like to have a shop where you can buy other equipment, overall is pretty good
This game is great but...
by Garr4 on 2016/03/06 03:39
This game is so much fun! The only thing that is wrong with the game is that you have to be on an Internet connection to play, if you could make a cloud save type of thing I would give this five stars because it's kinda annoying that I can't play this game offline without starting over again. But overall great game!
Yeah..no.
by theclintwhite on 2016/02/22 03:42
Sector 2.6? You guys need to do something about those missiles. They keep following you. It's one thing if it's just the missiles but when you have a boss sending a crazy amount of them, along with exploding yellow, red, green, you name it at you, no. I'm not going to buy an in app purchase for this game. Such BS.
Very unique and fun
by Herpy Derpity on 2016/02/20 20:07
Worth a try!
Shameful pay-to-win
by Amy Shan on 2016/02/18 03:10
Absolute most lousy pay-to-win game I've ever played. Don't expect to get anywhere without spending a whole lot of $$$. Or alternatively, collect the astonishing daily reward of 1 credit to save up for a ship (ships cost 30). So in 30 days, you can finally beat level 3... maybe. Absolutely shameful. Forget these shills and apologists giving it 5 stars.
Good but has some issues
by Sajuukhar on 2016/02/10 15:05
The positives: bright colorful graphics, decent storyline, easy to play. No real paywalls. The negatives: repetitive, there are 100 zones of 6 levels each but there are very few mission types. Almost all just destroy the targets, but once per zone there is a asteroid, or mine field mission which are seemingly identical zone to zone or a blockade mission. The story goes entire zones without updates. The ending is bad, I won't give out a plot detail but you get a 2 text line ending and then the game lets you replay the last 6 levels over and over again without any story. For those that think you need to spend money. You can get 4 credits per day, the high end ships cost 30 credits and you are just fine with the starter ship for a while.
One of my favorites
by Frothychair on 2016/02/05 01:25
I'll make it 5 stars when I don't have to redeem my purchases every time I turn the game on to get my double gems I paid $5 for..
Great game but don't expect a walk in the park
by Whoever made this rules😊😃😄 on 2016/02/04 04:07
This game deserves a five star rating, it's got the graphics, ships, multiple enemies, scenery, and decent customization. The main issue is that sure it's easy in the beginning on purpose, but eventually the game gets very tedious in the fact you are facing impossible odds and the only way to continue is to equip all defensive such as healing, shielding, and the one ship that offers lock on bullets. And that issue is annoying but forgive able since it appears later on in the game you get the full experience before hand, my only complaint is I want to finish the story lol but it's too hard to go on. Fix that and this game will be the best I've ever played in this genre of gameplay great job!
Great game
by Stabbing u in da foot on 2016/02/03 23:43
I love this game thair is so much content I never get board
Bullet hell
by Tatorous on 2016/02/03 22:26
Rightfully so, the challenge to stack 5 seconds sitting still (item that gives 50 hp per 5 non-consecutive seconds sitting still) gets progressively harder as the enemies vomit projectiles at you and have more ion shields (play it). 8/8 m8
Yes but also no
by Brutus rules on 2016/02/03 13:41
This game, I admit it's fun and addicting but why make these bosses harder than ever I remember the old arcade games and they were a whole lot easier I see this game and there's constant die, die, die, and die during the bosses there's like a million bullets getting shot each second and it's kind of immense bull crap that I can't shoot and kill the first boss because there's bullets getting shot in every direction I can't even concentrate on what the purpose is...
Stupid
by Edicxkcvf on 2016/02/01 18:01
This game is just dumb what else can I say? When the 2nd boss at the very beginning of the game disables your ship for 3 seconds every time you get hit, and all every single missile chases you around the screen 35 times, I delete a piece of trash app from my device
Bullseye
by Gehrehmeigh on 2016/01/29 01:24
A superbly challenging & entertaining space shooter. Absolutely worth a try, though you'll have to choose between online or offline mode, & I don't believe you can switch back (with that particular game file). But even offline, the game is reminiscent of retro, in a very good way.
This game is amazing
by Mollyjeanrn on 2016/01/23 00:07
I was just looking for a simple space game but then I found this and saw it was like Galiga and started playing really got into the story and mechanics and think it's the space shooter ever
Plz update addicting game
by Matcdt on 2016/01/17 14:50
Best app EVER need an update
Sweet
by Sweet creamer on 2016/01/04 20:38
This game is sweeter than sweet cream!
Can't get past the first level
by ndusr on 2016/01/03 02:29
I think I'd like it well enough, but I can't get past the boss on the tutorial.
Most addictive space game ever !
by JoBenavi on 2015/12/29 21:20
I love this game I specifically requested to find something like Galaga or better this is actually much more better than I expected ! I'm always playing this game instead of being on Facebook or playing candy crush , this is a must have for every iPhone 6 user !
Could be a great game but,
by _Sir Cool_ on 2017/10/26 14:57
It's sad as this game has potential. However, the dev's. set the game up to make money through in app purchases(which are expensive) and a constant barrage of ads. I would spend some money on in-apps upgrades but I can see myself deleting the game because of the ads shortly after. You essentially get 2 lives per level, but you have to watch a 30 second ad to get the second life(or chance, whatever). Some of the higher levels are nearly impossible to complete in 1 chance(or two depending on the strength of your upgrades)so you are constantly watching ads only to fail and have to do it again. You can spend an hour trying to get past a level, but you spend 45 minutes of that hour watching ads so you never get into a rhythm. Offer an ad-free version and I will spend some money on upgrades.
Still sad

I had this game I think two or three years ago and enjoyed it very much. But sadly once you get any kind of deep into the game you will slowly realize this app (like 90% of the rest of the game app market) gears you toward in app purchases. The game becomes so incredibly frustrating dealing with OP enemies while you’re still trying to deal with making your ship any kind of stronger than when you start the game off. If you can make it farther into the game then world 6 then I congratulate you. Major changes to the gem and credit system and nerfs to the black market to make it very less expensive to buy an upgrade would make me re download this game again. Until then this is just another game with EXTREME POTENTIAL that goes to waste with greedy developing.
Very good
by SurpriseFluffyKitty on 2019/03/19 23:21
Reminds me of Sky Force Reloaded, although it's pretty different, and the story's actually pretty engaging. Unfortunately, as thing's get harder, the pacing suffers, but that's not enough to give it a bad score. EDIT: So I’ve noticed a “bug” perhaps. When you exit out of the game and come back in, the bounty, cargo, and raid missions are all instantly generated. This definitely makes it easier to accrue things, but...I have to wonder...is it TOO easy...?
How to still enjoy
by glevan98 on 2019/01/21 17:51
People talk about how they have trouble upgrading, getting lives, ads, and micro transactions. If you want to enjoy this I’d recommend doing the cargo and bounty hunt missions. But after doing them change the date ahead a day to do another to keep getting gear. That’s the best way to enjoy this game unless the devs come back and make changes. I’m okay with the ads as a way for them to get money. But without changing the dates to get good gear. The game is just gearing you up for pay to progress.
Amazing Game
by Wudhdjakdkddu on 2018/03/03 20:28
This is one of this most challenging space shooting game I’ve played. It’s very fast paced, and CHALLENGING. But it has one flaw, the way to get credit is very hard. I know that you are able to watch an ad for extra credit, but those come very rarely. Overall, very amazing game, very challenging too, but credit is hard to come by.
Could be better
by JNutter3006 on 2018/04/07 21:39
The game is difficult. It’s not an impossible “you lost a mission so it’s game over” but it is difficult. I would love a function where we can keep our “cargo” from mission until we can open them. It’s annoying to survive through one, only to find out I don’t have the credits or cubes to open the cargo. Good game, worth it if you have patience! -J
Great game + graphics
by CoruscantII on 2017/11/10 20:45
Graphics in this game are amazing and gameplay is really fun too, especially in higher levels, however I didn't really like the story mode or campaign part. Mostly kept going back through levels after I had completed the campaign, as that's what is more fun in my opinion..
Fantastic
by Ur-Procyon on 2017/10/24 01:48
One of the best shoot'em up games available today. It has everything a proper space drama fan could ask for. Modern yet classical UI, nostalgia inducing pixel designs, heart-pumping physics engine, engaging characters and storyline, great variety of ships and upgrades that prevents the game from becoming stale... It's magnificent.
So much fun
by Awesome kingdomrush game!!!277 on 2018/03/21 02:14
Lots of potential... please keep updating and adding to it. More ships, maybe a screen that allows you to view the current ship with the upgrades on it! More background scenes. More special weapons!!!
Come Back!!!!
by Flycotic on 2018/07/03 06:20
Please come back and update this app. It needs some lovin and fixes and more content. Been here since day 1 and love this game to death. I can’t bring myself to delete it
Lots of potential
by Lil N8TV on 2019/05/16 09:30
There’s a lot that can be added the game seems cut and dry and has been for a while, if they got onto adding different aspects to the game it would be much more interesting
Great but could be better
by oscarbman on 2018/04/27 06:50
This game is fun but it gets repetitive after a while. I like this game because of the story driven characters, but I wish Gemini Strike was way more story driven.
BIG PROBLEM
by Pig zombie on 2019/04/07 14:12
On the new iPhone XS Max the game doesn’t fill up the screen and there'sThea black bars at the top and bottom. When you move your ship over them it gets stuck. It completely messes up the game and causes you too die. Please fix.
I love this but...
by tripleA4321 :P on 2019/01/31 04:34
I really want a multiplayer mode and can you make the Black Friday sales cheaper? Pls
DEVS PLEASE FIX URGENT
by Ju_k1 on 2017/11/05 15:36
My facebook save isnt popping up! i cant find it anywhere and i had so much progress! please help!!!
Horrible update
by Jjc1347138 on 2017/10/04 19:40
Most recent update messes everything up. Constantly kicks or back to home screen, watching video to continue doesn't work ever for special missions/rarely for normal levels.
Chang it now
by Carson lujan on 2017/09/16 07:18
The bosses are to hard and I don't want to lose my progress change it now and the enemy missile do to much damage and are to fast and are hard to make them miss and go of the screen in I'm angry at you now change it
Garbage
by trapmaster.awebb on 2017/11/13 17:51
As you progress through the game it becomes more and more buggy. By the seventh level I would die before the first enemy even spawned and lose a life. Utterly terrible game
Amazing game
by hiliwaka Kill on 2018/06/27 13:22
So l love this game and won’t stop playing it (99%) off the day
Great game though
by Gaming Guy0239 on 2017/11/02 21:55
This is a great game but sometimes it can be a little to hard and the ads really get on my nerves please remove them so I can have a solid gameplay experience. :)
This is nothing but a cash grab
by Qwerty1976 on 2017/11/25 08:07
This is no more than a mediocre shooter. After 1 hour of play the game goes from easy to near impossible. Your lives are on a timer to manipulate you to spend money on lives. There’s so many better shooters out there that aren’t a cash grab: Phoenix 2 Time locker Sky Force (any version) Infinity gene Plasma sky ... to name a few.
Not A True RPG, And That’s Its Fatal Flaw
by Paradise Imminent on 2017/11/10 06:46
I had this game once before, but I wanted to try it again, to see if the issues previously discovered had been resolved. In a word: no. The capabilities of your ship are almost completely dependent on the stats attached to the armaments from the crates; if you want a better ship, it will require better loot. You can get crates in a number of ways, but to get the loot FROM the crates, you’ll have to spend the game’s currency - either gems or credits. If you obtain a crate without having the gems or credits to open it, you’ll have to either spend real money to get the amount you need, or abandon the crate, as if any crate not opened is destroyed. Even if you do obtain the loot from the crate, the stats attached are a complete jumble, unless it is rare-grade loot or higher, meaning that the loot you may want to use may not make your ship any more capable to survive. This will mean spending a good amount of time simply grinding for the loot that will have the stats to keep your ship intact for more than a couple of hits. To raise the stats on the loot you get? LOTS of gems; 3,850 of them, to be exact, to get even standard loot to their max level. Without the gem doubler (a in-game purchase), amassing that amount would take longer than it is worth. I have made it to sector 26 for the first time, but the grinding and spending of gems and credits in the hopes that an armament that I want will actually improve my ship, instead of just giving me a desired weapon to use, actually makes the ‘tons of items procedurally generated’ a negative thing; it would be better to simply have a shop that allows to purchase what you want, so you have more control over your ship’s stats/chance of survival, or have a level-up system on your ship itself, so that you have a chance of making it better in between all the crate obtaining/opening. *sigh* I’ve had enough... again. :-(
Abominable Space Shooter!
by AcEMaNz on 2018/03/15 12:02
I read some of the other reviews and I do not understand their complaints. It is shooter with RPG style stats. You can get credits and bounty quickly by completing bounty hunt missions and cargo missions which are plentiful. Once you save enough credits (which does not take long), you can unlock stronger ships. There are so many ships to choose from and they have a variety of special weapons and stat bonuses. Also, the reactors are powerful and are crucial for victory. The raid missions are fun and give you power cores which unlock some of the best ships in the game. The bounty hunt and cargo missions get progressively harder as you unlock more sectors so a good strategy is to play these missions early on to collect credits, bounty, ships, and rare items. Then once you become more powerful, beat a few more sectors, then play more of the side missions again so you can become even stronger. Repeat this process and you will progress throughout the game like a blood thirsty falcon. Visually, the game is stunning. The weapon effects are awesome, the sound is strong, and the gameplay is intense. The screen is always filled with a variety of unique and great looking enemy weapons. The bosses and their weapons are wild and their music is intense. Another great aspect in the game is the story line. The game contains dialogue throughout the entire campaign which is witty and entertaining, and the story itself is intriguing. The characters are well developed and interact in interesting manners. I am absolutely stunned by players saying that they couldn't get past the first 6-10 sectors. There are 100 sectors! I am equally as surprised by how many players said that the developers are greedy and how they force you to spend money to progress throughout the game. This is simply not true. The time it takes to collect credits and bounty is reasonable if you play both the campaign and side missions. Plus, you must get better items and ships as you progress throughout the game. It does not take too much time to get and upgrade items that will help you progress through the next few sectors. It takes a while to beat the entire game because there are so many missions and tiers of items. Whenever you do need to get better items, it does not take too long. The side missions are fun, change as you progress, and help you get better items and credits pretty quickly. Plus, the items get better and never get old because there are always new types of awesome stats and weapons. A smart strategy is too equip a combination of items and ships that have a chain-link effect (powerful stats that power other powerful stats). I don't mean to degrade these gamers, but I hope to get more people to understand the strategies needed to conquer this amazing game. I never had to grind much or spend money, and even though its challenging, I never got stuck on one level for a long time. More people would enjoy it if they would understand the proper strategies and appreciate the myriad of RPG style items. There are an incredible amount of amazing stats, weapons, and missions. How could you not enjoy this game? There are so many gameplay elements. The developers deserve more credit. This is the most underrated vertical shooter. Anyway, I love this game. It is perfect and no other vertical shooter is like it. I appreciate the compelling story line, awesome items and stats, myriad of ships and weapons, great sound and graphics, and very smooth gameplay mechanics. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
Back for the 3rd time
by Gamemasterinfinity on 2014/11/08 16:01
I'm back just wanted to say great game and I still think you should make these improvements: first make black market stuff cheaper maybe 1 credit. To even out the black market stuff being cheaper, you need to make the bounty hunts give you 1 credit, the cargo mission boxes need to be opened with gems and the daily reward turns into gems (at the end of the week the daily reward returns to 1 credit, but only if you collected the reward each day and only for 1 day). Not only should you make black market cargo cheaper you should also add new black market cargo, let me explain. Make more expensive cargo, but they must guarantee a certain type of item examples: cargo box that costs 1 credit guarantees a rare item, cargo box that costs 3 credits guarantee a super rare item ect. Also bounty hunts need be easier: remove the elites you have to battle. Also add a transfer market: where you can transfer credits into gems and vise versa. Also reduce the difficulty of some ships example: lazer beam support needs to lose the shield. Add an option where you can buy ships with gems (for those who spend a lot of credits and save a lot of gems) Finally add a multiplayer mode where it is pvp and coop.(player vs. player) and (cooperative battle). If you read till the end of this thank you and please add the ideas that you agree with to your review, so there will be a greater chance of these ideas getting used.
The greatest, most unique space shooter app
by abcforeverz on 2015/10/18 13:54
Love this game. I'll give it 5 stars. Some of my generally very mild complains and/or suggestions include the following: the background art of the stages always appear the same from one chapter to the next minus a change in color tint perhaps. Not too big of a deal. Then that seemingly unnecessary persistent connection that seems to be popular in so many apps these days. Bigger deal, still not the end of the world lol. Lastly, sometimes it won't connect at all, even when my internet connection is perfect, but this isn't that often, really. Offline play should be included, it's one of a few faults that modern apps are including these days almost universally, for whatever reason. Keep the updates coming PLEASE! Seems to have been awhile since a significant content update. Hope the developers haven't stopped progress in developing new content, unless they are working on a sequel coming soon of course then keep it up! lol. Anyway I love the game, very unique, many weapons, ships, stages, ongoing story that seems compelling Enough for me so far. I always wonder what's going to happen next. It's the perfect space shooter app out there in my opinion. If you enjoy such games, DEFINITELY get this app. Thank you for making this game as well developers! Keep up the great work and to all the players out there, happy hunting!
Low expectations initially
by djdeclan100 on 2015/04/11 18:52
I really didn't expect much from this game initially as I downloaded several other space shooter type games, re-initiating myself into the genre after many years break. It slowly has become more and more intriguing and I am hooked now. I am not a P2P or P2W gamer and like everyone else says, the game is very hard the first few nodes. I had to replay missions frequently in order to buy the crates and upgrade items. However, you get credits for getting past nodes and also for watching ads (which I kind of like), which on the weekends lets you watch an ad about once every hour. Once I got my first credit-purchased ship (the green one that shoots shot-gun rounds and self-heals) I quickly began advancing nodes (on 13 currently). The game mechanics are challenging, the storyline is actually pretty comedic and compelling, the secret missions are a great way to get lots of $ and rare crates at reduced rates, and the raid encounters are fun without being too hard. Plus other pilots join from time to time to help you, though I think they're AI controlled. I understand there are 100 levels so I am wondering if I can get through them all without getting burnt out but for now I'm holding strong. The only complaint is the game is glitchy sometimes and I have to perma-exit the game to fix it, but its a quick loading game.
Very unique. Great for those who are good at shooters
by Sscurry33 on 2014/10/13 21:16
This is one of the best top down shooters for the ios besides space invaders infinity gene. I love the unique style of this game as it combines a shooter with an rpg styled upgrade system. The graphics are nice too look at but can make it hard to tell whats going on at times. The added relative controls offer a better feel to the game and allow you to see the fighter instead of being covered by your thumb. The game can get frustrating at times, mainly at bosses that seem to be a little over powered. The game never manages to get too hard as over time you'll find better items, upgrade those items, and get better at dodging enemy fire. One specific feature I like and hope to be expanded upon is the surprise assistance from other players fighters. This not only makes the game more fun but gives a good reason to play as often as possible especially if you're stuck on a boss or level. I hope that a full multiplayer section will be made sooner or later, that would really make the game fun. The music is decent, I do like how the games music follows a main theme and fades into variations over time, It would be nice to have more themes that the game can use with the main theme during different sections and levels. I'd recommend this game to anyone who is in search of a new top down shooter to play. I know I'm happy with what I found.
Fun Game with Glaring Flaws
by TacoGuitarPlayer on 2014/09/07 20:05
This game is a really fun bullet hell game, but it has some twists thrown in which makes it frustrating. My biggest problems are the controls. They work fine, but since this is a bullet hell game and you use your finger to move around, it can block part of the screen making it hard to dodge. The game has a equipment screen where you can change out 4 pieces of equipment. That's cool and you can adjust to the mission you are about to take on. The problem is that they also increase your stats and need to be upgraded in order to be good, because otherwise you are flying a tin can which can't take a hit from any of the stronger enemies. In order to upgrade you need money, which you get from FINISHING missions. So if you are stuck on a level you can not gain any money and move forward. This means you have to go back to older worlds or do special missions. The problem with that is that those special missions are hard, and if you have one on a world you need to go back to, you are forced to play it in order to go back. This can make you lose a guy and now you have to wait 15 mins to get him back, and with 4 guys good luck grinding the money you need in order to advance. This game is a fun game with an interesting concept, just the mechanics work against each other to the games detriment. Please fix these problems and make this game something to remember in the bullet hell genre.
Fun, but needs some tweaking.
by ydarb10 on 2014/09/07 13:51
Really fun game, but I think a few things should be fixed/ changed. First off, the text in the star map and the ship hangar is black, as well as the pictures of your items and ship upgrades. Also, I think the game gets too hard too fast. It is nearly impossible to survive the third and fourth boss without paying for black market items or getting really lucky in a standard crate. Also I find the blockade missions VERY hard as well. I love the idea of the black market, but I think it should be expanded and have different kind of crates you can choose from. It would also be pretty cool if every 2 weeks or so there would be a new and super powerful ship upgrade in the black market. You would have to buy a special crate for 5 credits and there would be a 10% chance to get this special weapon upgrade. I think the credits are a bit too expensive. Only 2 for 2 dollars isn't worth it really. I think it should be 3 for 1 dollar. It gives you 3 life refills or 1 chance at a black market crate. Lastly, this game is very pay-2-win. The father you get into the game, the harder the levels get, but your ship does not get better. There is no way to get a good ship without paying for black market crates. Maybe a shop should be added so you can but rare items for an expensive amount of credits. Other than those issues, the game is really fun!
Absolutely love it, plenty of room for improvements
by LozzaPowuh on 2014/09/08 17:17
Gonna make this quick- the game is awesome, looks great, I haven't had any noticeable bugs as of writing this. This game has a lot potential, but it's still unpolished; black market stuff costs way too much (should be 1 credit, since it would mean an item per sector completed, instead of having it cost a dollar each), plasma weapons need to be toned down in damage, bosses need to have more designs, ships need to have personal upgrades (like upgrading the basic gun to have more shots, higher ROF, more speed, which would show on the ship so they would also be visible upgrades) there needs to be higher amounts of money gained from higher levels (I still earn roughly the same as I did in level 1 in level 7), there needs to be ships that can be bought with gems and you also need to be able to try their weapons and abilities out, there needs to be a shop for weapons and gear, items should have different upgrade paths, ships should be customizable, there needs to be a difficulty marker for each level, levels need to have a progress bar, missiles need to be destructible projectiles, and finally, give us different types of lasers like emp and plasma. If you read all of this you're a champ.
Love it
by Dandan237 on 2015/07/11 06:31
When I first saw it in the App Store I thought oh it's a space shooter and I thought to my self well there's other good space shooters I can get but this one look very good to play so I downloaded it and when I first played it, it was confusing at first but when life went on I started to get the hang of it and now I really like the game and wish there is more content in the future it's just the same thing over and over again go through the levels and defeat the boss I really wished that there was new modes to the game you can play and more easier ways to get credits and cores but it really is a fun game and should be put out there more with updates and new modes new boss like one idea a snak like battle ship boss or new ships and different types of weapons and meeting new people and also there should be a coop mode for up to 4 people and or raid boss mode where if you defeat the boss you can get cores or credits or different types of weapons as you go on and defeat the boss and also there should be different power ups and or different sectors with new people or even Nevermind I'm going a little bit crazy over this review but this isn't my game it's the creators game 😄
Repetitive.
by Cloudcompeller on 2015/11/06 22:14
For anybody to say this is the most unique game they've played would suggest they don't play many/any games. Certainly not the worst, but 60 chapters in and it's still the same. Same fire pattern, ships and background (minus a slight tint every so many chapters).Each chapter is broken into 6 levels with the 3rd always being a gauntlet to survive and the 6th being one of only a few bosses. On top of this repetition, the only way to realistically progress is to save up your "credits" to have a shot at better gear via the black market (or the bonus cargo missions for 1 less credit if you can make it through alive). From what I can tell, the best gear you can get outside of that is green quality. If it's even possible to get better via normal play, the rate is punishingly abysmal which sort of defeats replaying older levels to grind for it. All in all, it's a pretty solid game but it lacks steady or reliable progression. Would have worked better with a leveling system or a different system for gear. As it is, you can be stuck on a level with all 4 slots at level 5 and 50k gems to spend but no improved gear to upgrade and move on. Of course, if you spend money on IAPs you may have no problems but then what's the point if you pay to win.
Was great, but the update has some problems
by Gemini Pilot on 2014/09/09 11:56
I really enjoyed playing this game up until the most recent update (1.0.9, I believe). Everything was great, and more importantly, everything worked. Ever since I've installed the update, the game has been horrendously slow and had some weird moments. One of the most common occurrences is that when I'm fighting a boss or a miniboss, they just fly away and go off screen. I lose a life, and all of my progress through the level. It's kinda frustrating to be at the end of a level and the boss flies away, so all you can do is try to kill yourself with asteroids. I've had to do that a lot recently, and it gets tedious quickly. As for the massive slow down of the game, I have no idea. I just know that it takes my pilot a few seconds to follow my finger, and when he does, he either goes too far or not enough. Sometimes he even moves without my touching the screen! I do enjoy the game, and I'm sorry that I had to write a one star review. It was great, but the recent patch has made it completely unplayable. I'd be happy to come back and change it to five stars and talk about how I enjoy a bullet hell game having a plot and good music, but I need to be able to play it first. Thank you very much for your time, if you've read this far. I hope to see a fix sometime soon.
Love!
by Johnnieboyee on 2014/09/24 13:36
I love Gemini Strike!! Such a great game and actually challenging! I've missed that! But there are a couple things, the power-ups and the boss for the bounty hunt! I've been in the situation where I have the power up I want but then it gets switched for a really inopportune one! Like some power-ups are better for some situations, for example if there are too many enemies on screen, a burst or shock orb are awesome! But against a boss you're going to want missiles or plasma beam. I think that you should have to use your current power-up before another can come in, rather than any power up coming in and replacing your current one. Now, the boss of the bounty hunt! I consistently kill him off screen with missiles or a plasma ball and he'll drop all his gems off screen.( :/ ) I think the best way to solve this problem would be to do some sort of animation where he returns to his starting position before he explodes. Just some thoughts! I'm addicted to your game and I intend to play it until I complete it! Thank you for being great game producers!! It's five stars from me!
Meh...
by Scootzzs on 2014/10/10 17:57
It's fun for about 15 levels, until you hit a point where 99% of the upgrades are poorly itemized and don't come close to scaling with the difficulty. To make matters worse they recently increased the cost of upgrading items significantly, making progression even more difficult and frustrating. The boss fights are the same 3-4 models with the same 3-4 attacks every level, the only difference is the damage and rate of fire, which become impossible to evade & mitigate due to items poorly scaling with difficulty and only moderately responsive controls. You can buy Credits which can be used to purchase items, but again 99% of even these items will be discarded/sold as they are also poorly itemized and don't scale to the difficulty. The story line is abysmal and should be removed. It also pauses the game with no warning during mid-combat (not during an intermission, transition, or beginning/end of a level) by opening a window in the middle of the screen. If you want decent shooter to keep you busy for a few hours, or don't mind re-playing the first 12 levels over and over, than this games for you. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend. I'll be shelving this one hoping they make some significant changes, but if not if not it's getting deleted.
Major Issues, Bugs, Etc.
by damanky on 2014/09/07 10:32
First of all, very fun game in it's core essence. But my god, is it truly an incomplete game. Literally NONE of the items, ships, inventory menus work (including the game map). They all render a BLACK BOX. Completely useless - you must click on an item in your inventory to even see what it is. This is definitely a bug, and over site in testing. Your inventory simply does not show any items, and it looks like an empty inventory until you try to check on the "empty" inventory spaces. The ship particles are distracting, as well as the ship placement beneath your thumb. Could use HUGE bug fixes and improvement, if fixed - the game would be a super fun shoot em up space shooter with enjoyable gameplay, but otherwise entirely broken and worthless. Note after playing more; this game is really just monetized for making the dev's money. It's ridiculously hard to beat the second "real" boss, truly took me a week with the 4 lives an hour (or whatever) limit. Honestly, I love hack n slash and shoot em up games, my favorite genre of games to play ... But this game is truly a waste of time. I am disappointed in Armor Games for distributing this. Not worth the download or play-time past 5 minutes.
Very fun, addicting shooter
by Sykezzzzzzz on 2015/08/25 04:34
I had low expectations... I found this game on a whim...used to play Sky Force for a similar game, but this game is a lot better. It's surprisingly deep and challenging. The item hunt aspect ads a lot of replay value to it and a sort of dungeon crawler feel. You always get excited when you find some cargo and unlock it to find out whats inside. The game is very challenging...by the 6th or 7th world i found myself franticallt darting around the screen trying to avoid missles and stuff...the graphics are a good blend of oldschool with some colorful backgrounds and effects. The sound effects and music are also very good. Good to play with headphones. The RPG elements come in the form of upgrading items, ans combining 4 different gear slots with custom ships that also have unique abilities...its surprisingly deep and satisfying yet also still simple enough to play in small spurts and still make progress. I also found its easy enough to progress without spending any real life money. I occasionally hit a wall, and have to play through a previous world or two again to earn money to upgrade my items more, but so far its never been tedious or excessive. I usually get one or two more upgrades and then get back to progressing further in the game. I am not in Sector 11 and still having fun. Random challenges and events spawning on the map in precious sectors ad variety and challenge as well. Great game guys, hopw u continue to update it!
Best game Ive played on mobile
by Skittlez0304 on 2015/05/24 13:49
So I had been searching for a spaceship arcade shooter for a while, I played Galaxy On Fire 2 for so many hours and I'm a huge fan of space sims on PC like Elite Dangerous so I downloaded this game with a number of others and this one by far was the most fun. It's polished, the mechanics are easy to understand, the storyline while pretty cheesy with the dialogue is compelling enough so that I know Im playing FOR something. The paid currency is also pretty easy to get in game through daily quests like bounty hunts or just by beating the regular bosses or watching ads. The game is really fun to play and I recommend this to everyone. Oh! I almost forgot the visuals are stunning. While the backgrounds can be a bit lack-luster that's not really what you're looking at most of the time. The retro graphics and crazy cool particle effects combines with the explosions just make the game feel so active and alive.
Okay game with lots of potential
by Helryx on 2014/09/08 10:15
I love the shooting and dodging aspect of the game and the graphics are really unique. The dialogue is super witty and overall it's pretty fun. However, there's something's that could make it better. First off, it's annoying that if you want to turn on the online settings you have to reset the whole game. Second, whenever you get a cargo box, you should have the option of selling it because 90% of the time I have to ignore a hard earned box. Third, show the ships in the store in action so you can tell what they do, because otherwise you buy one and realize it's actually pretty bad. In addition, why do you have to lose progress in a sector if you start a different one? It's kind of annoying when I wanna earn some money and I have to do all the missions again and again. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to choose what items I get, instead of randomly opening a box, getting a crappy item and wasting a credit. This game has big potential, but it needs work.
Hell yes!

I initially thought this game wouldn't be much. However, upon starting it, I became hooked, and the feeling progressed much more as the story continued. It has an intriguing storyline, and the gameplay is fun. The credits are hard to get, but worth it in the end. The black market and cargo boxes make it suspenseful in what type of special item you will get. The different ships and items allow anyone to customize the ship to fit their fighting style. I have finished the entire game (beat sector 100), and also love the fact that you can reset your data on a facebook connected account, and still come back later if you want. The only thing I would suggest is to make golden cargo boxes easier to obtain, I'm on sector 100 and have not found a single one. Also, make the items better higher up. I've seen people with triple plasma chainers on sector 29, and can't find a single one myself.
I don't always review but...Let's be objective

Let me start with this. Yes, the game is not easy. You will lose a lot until you get better and get items. That's part of the RPG element which is in the game title. It's either you play games like this or are used to being spoonfed with angry birds type of games. I've read many reviews saying the Devs "jacked" up the difficulty for people to spend money and that its P2W. Right now I'm at Sector 5.1 with the first ship, all items that are found in the stages and no premium currency bought. Yes, you have to go to the first sector and replay all the stages to get gems to upgrade the items. After that you need to get better at fighting. The game is pretty good in terms of graphics and sound. The controls could be better. The story is on the "comedy" side. The game reminds me of the R-type games and nintendo era difficulty. Defenitively would recommend.
Great game! Here's some ideas to make it better!

First, why can't we choose our power ups? That would be a lot more helpful to save power ups for certain situations. Add more power ups too like a shield or something. Second, why can't we choose a specific level. To rerun a level you have to go back to the sector and play stages in order to reach the stage you want. I like the asteroids but I can't just click on the stage after I beat it, I have to rerun an entire sector. Third, if possible, make this multiplayer. I like the ally ship that helps you out but i would like it more if it has a mind of its own. Playing with a friend in this game could be really fun. No split screen though because that's just wont do for this game. Allow for another iPhone to connect to same stage and you guys can see each other on your own screen like how you see that AI allies when they help you.
Great game but glitches are frustrating.

I have been enjoying this game greatly and have made in-app purchases, but have been frustrated recently. When you die mid-mission, you have the option to respawn immediately (for a credit, the premium currency) rather than try the level over. When you spend the credit and respawn, you are momentarily stuck in place with a couple seconds of invulnerability, but the invuln doesn't kick in immediately, so most of the time you're almost dead by the time you can move. Also, on the time-released bounty hunt missions, several times I have killed the boss, and will die immediately after the boss suffers the killing blow, and am not offered a chance to respawn for a credit although the mission says it is a success, so that beautiful royal cargo just floats out there in space and cannot be collected. Super frustrating. Other than that, excellent game and will be playing for quite a while.
Good.

The biggest downfall of this game and others like it, is the whole finger over the playing area. There's just so much going on and having your finger blocking anything is bad. Not much to do to counter this however besides a control area separate from the action, which would just further reduce the play area. IAPs aren't forced, but you do hit essentially a pay wall. The only other way around this is to repeatedly do earlier levels and hope for better gear and in-game currency to upgrade said gear. This problem along side limited lives that replenish on a timer is why I give it only 3/5. I understand the need for IAPs on a freemium game, but it doesn't make it less frustrating. If it's a grinder, don't limit lives so that I can continuously play when I'm on standby or off work and grind away. The IAPs will still appeal to those not wanting to put in the effort. In short, charge up front for the game, remove lives and still offer IAPs for those that don't wish to grind.
Good game

Gemini Strike is a pretty fun game, but it has a few problems. First, it doesn't scale well. The enemies become progressively stronger, however you don't. The items you receive (through missions, bounties, and via credit purchases) are underwhelming and barely help after a certain point. Even the Super Rare items are inadequate. The item lottery is also seemingly working against you. More often than not you weak or outdated items compared to what you need to just survive--much less out-damage the enemies. And that's in reference to the rare and super rare items. Second, the game itself becomes unavoidably difficult. As you progress, enemies gain the ability to fire EMP weapons, which disables your ship for two seconds. It's a nice challenge, except when half of the screen is filled with EMP shots and many of them can follow your ship (missiles and chains). So after a certain point, you come to a level where you will be chain stunned for several seconds until you die. One shot is all it takes, and there are a few dozen EMP shots coming at you. So far, I haven't found a practical mechanism to mitigate this. Anyway, despite these problems, the game is still rather fun. The story is interesting too. I've written this review since I'm finished with the game. I haven't completed it yet, I've just reached a point where I feel the amount of time I'm putting into grinding and playing isn't paying off or helping me progress.
Seems people are having trouble with the item section glitch

Allow me to put all your concerns to rest and make you filthy rich(with gems at least). After upgrading an item as far as you want it, quickly go back to the main menu, as theres some kind of error with the upgrade system. Second, when you upgrade something to level 4, click the button to upgrade again but don't try upgrading, just wait for a minute. You will get an error message, click cancel and your item will be back to the previous level, but if you look to your gems you'll notice there are 400 more than when you started. Repeat and enjoy infinite gems for as long as it lasts. This makes collecting cargo on the actual levels a lot more fun as you can actually afford to open them and get a chance at free rare gear I love this game so much!
Eh

I'm a little jaded going into this review, because my last experience with this game is downright frustrating. The controls are mediocre, the storyline is cheesy, and so far it's just one of those games that makes you feel as if forking over your wallet is the only way to get anywhere. Needless to say I did not finish it. Nevertheless it has it's qualities. Gameplay itself is smooth even in the graphically intense bits, and even my iPad 2 can appreciate the thoughtful programming behind this game. It takes a different approach to online coop than most games, it's difficult to explain, but the game is free, and I'll leave you to your opinions on that. Overall I didn't think it was worth 4 or 5 stars because I don't feel that the only way to justify in-app purchases is through insanely difficult gameplay within a few minutes of playing, and the controls just aren't intuitive enough. I will rewrite my review after an update, although I don't expect very many changes.
Awesome game

This is a fun game if you like shoot em ups. But if you're like me and like to play games to finish the story this will be disappointing because of how hard it is to advance to the next sector. There are a couple things that should be worked on. Sectors become increasingly harder than the previous ones and it doesn't take long to make cool new upgrades obsolete. Adding another equip slot or two would help with getting through levels without spending a ridiculous amount of money for credits that wont even guarantee to unlock a good item. I've spent ~$15 to try and unlock cargo that could help me get through a few levels but even if i do get lucky and land a sweet item it quickly becomes useless against the huge amount of damage and life next sector enemies have and because if this im not spending another dime for credits. I definitely think this game should have a story mode and challenge mode. The story mode (something not as hard as the game is now) being for people who like to casually play good games and finish the story and challenge mode for the more hardcore gamers. Please also fix the logging out issues. Any time i complete a level and pick up random cargo i'll go and see what i got and when i go to play another level it logs me out and says i've been logged into another device which doesnt make sense because i only play this on my phone. If its any help im playing on an iphone 5 ios 8.1
Great game

I love it, it's so much fun, so colorful and so lively, I just get confused every once in a wile cause half the time I can't comprehend witch lasers/rockets I'm suppose to avoid, but other than that Iv never seen someone I can friend request, most of the time no one has an active profile I can friend, I play as a guest but have the data save option activated, I don't know if it's because I'm not connected to Facebook (witch I refuse to do) or if no one really has an active account, other than that, i started a new game after re downloading (played a year ago and it won't let me redeem my last game even though it is saved in Game Center) and it seemed to become 10X harder, I had to restart the story mode a few times just to get past the first boss If you get past the intense difficultly of the first few levels and wait a few days to earn credits, buy a ship and the game gets extremely enjoyable
