    Simple Fun ( w/no ad issues)

    Fun way to kill time. A tried and true fun type of game. Fly around and shoot the enemy. I personally have had literally no problems with ads like I read in some reviews on here. That’s why I wanted to make a review here. I enjoy the game. There ARE better flight shooter type games for free on the App Store, but I’m satisfied with this, as it is more of a casual thing for me. Fun game!

    Love it except for the glitches

    I have experienced the following glitches: - The blue forward or advance (after completing a mission) button does not work. - Several times the app has suddenly closed while in the middle of a mission. This has happened repeatedly and been extremely frustrating when playing an Infinity Mission with a score near 300,000 and full power and fuel. - - - The issue above also negates any mission completions since the last time the app was closed. This happens repeatedly when trying to complete missions during the Event time periods that lead up to being awarded the V-22 Osprey. - No gems are awarded when completing an Intercept Mission. - I have reached the MAX upgrade level on DMG but it doesn’t actually increase damaging power especially when playing the Crazy mode .


    Love the game... BUT...

    I am nearing the end of the 50 levels... would love to see more levels added ( as would many others I have read on the reviews ) ... With that said... here of late... the game sometimes hangs up after a failed mission, and I click leave... I have to kill app and restart... not knowing if I received the medals and gold I acquired and losing the option to watch video for multiplier... Please address...

    Very glitchy

    Game play is good and fun but so many very frustrating glitches that never get fixed and there seems to be no way to report the issues. Two main ones I experience are in: P vs P - constantly get opponent failed to load. The most frustrating is in watching adds - constantly watch adds and don’t get credit for it or rewards sometimes have to watch 4 or five adds to get credit for one!! Then all too frequently there are no ads available. :(

    To Many Ads

    On the PACK screen it lets you watch 5 videos and every video is worth 10 blue gems. In my game after you watch the video I DO NOT receive any gems at all. I still play it though but now it’s getting boring, especially after needing those blue gems to upgrade your plane. Was a good game at first but got boring real quick and like I said w/o those gems it took me longer to upgrade. Please fix this glitch so other people don’t have to go through the same crap.

    Effort Needs to Be Rewarded Without Glitches

    I have enjoyed this game a lot. It’s a great take on the classic arcade game, with some cool updates for newer planes, head-to-head battles, etc. That all being said, the GLITCHES AND THE SUBSEQUENT INCONSISTENCIES KF THE GAMEPLAY ARE A SERIOUS NEGATIVE AND FRUSTRATION . Constantly one is offered the opportunity to watch ads to increase their rewards, and many times there is no payoff at all. It just goes right back to where things are and it is throughout the gameplay, on gold boost and on gift and chest rewards. I GENUINELY WONDER IF IT IS SET UP AS CLICK BAIT SUCH THAT MORE AND MORE ADS ARE VIEWED IN THE HOPES OF GETTING THOSE REWARDS. Also inconsistent is the head-to-head play. Sometimes I dominate in a way that is almost too easy, other times I shoot a plan 10 times and it doesn’t explode when it took one shot to destroy the same plane the day before. This is incredibly frustrating. Finally, and not glitch-related: THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE LEVELS! I’ve exhausted the 50 levels and I’m forced to just play the same ones over and over, and they are even less challenging as I get more boosts and better planes from the points from replays.

    Rip Off...update wipes out progress

    Let’s begin by explaining that the latest update wipes out most of what you spent money and time on, basically taking your money and providing no return. Second is the many glitches of the update which include how the game gets stuck with an enemy that you can’t kill cause it’s too off screen and the level won’t end, or you just fly with no enemies and level never ends. This happens on Levels 12, 17, 22, 23, 26, 29, and 40. It may occur on later levels but that’s as far as I have gotten so far. The developers need to give back our hard earned money or fix the features lost by the update, which include my weapons lasting 30 seconds, the weapons effectiveness back to same power, the dozens of magnets, double stars, power ups, and emps (lightning strike) that I’ve earned and/or paid for and so on. Finally, provide help pages to explain the ways to earn features, planes, what other new things you’ve done, and so on. I almost think it is not included so they can take your money and not give you what is expected. I don’t mind the ads as long as the rewards actually work as advertised following watching the video. Right now 1 out of 3/4 don’t pay off. A game with nostalgic potential but reverse of update or serious attention to issues need to be executed.

    Don’t bother.

    Unless you like spending lots of money and/or watching 4 hours of ads a day for little more than table scraps, this game wouldn’t be for anyone. You literally have to watch dozens of 30 second ads for the “freebies”. But the problem is you only get credit for watching every other ad or every third ad. And the rewards for the hours of ads you’d watch each day will take years to accumulate enough to advance. Update: started tracking. Watched 96 ads (mostly 30 second ads) got credit for 31. In general I would have enjoyed the game but due to the fact it takes 3x+ ads to get the credit for watching them and the rewards for the ads should be 3x+ better, not only am I deleting, but I’m so annoyed I’m writing a review for the first time.

    Fun for what it is

    I pair the extra to put the kibosh on ads, and it worked for a while. A long while. With the recent update, after every map, there’s an ad now though. Every. Single. Map. When intentionally watching an ad for a free chest opening, it won’t register the watch, and make you rewatch a video to move to the next screen. Maybe it can be addressed in a future bug fix or something, as the “restore purchases” button does nothing. I don’t have Facebook to message about it, so maybe a review will work? That could be another thing, have a way for people without Facebook to message about the app maybe. Regardless, app is deleted, I’m over it. Tired of ads after everything, AFTER paying for the ad free content and plane upgrade.

    Fixed 1 problem, ran into another

    Recent patch finally fixed level 25 on my iPad Pro. Was finally getting back into enjoying this game until I got to level 33. THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING! The end of the level has 6 subs surface. I can sink 5 of them, but the middle top one doesn’t come down far enough from the top of the screen. So, once again, I can’t shoot the guns off the screen that I can’t see, but they can shoot me. Nothing to do but fly around until I run out of fuel or am shot down. What fun. After waiting nearly 3 months for level 25 to get fixed, all I got was 8 levels further just to have to wait again for the same problem to get fixed. PLEASE FIX LEVEL 33 ON IPAD PRO. Consider doing a run-through on iPad Pro to make sure the product works.

    Absolutely Terrible Update - Disappointing

    The new update is awful. If I knew the new update was going ruin the game I never would have updated it. The old layout was fun with a true arcade feel to it. Before the new update, It was easy to navigate between levels and earn coins and jewels. Now, it seems you have to use medals just to play and the bosses are not loading at the end of a level. Also, it is too busy and seems you have to pay for everything. After playing this game for almost a year, I’ll be deleting it now. A word of advise for the developer(s): if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Highly Disappointing.

    There odds are way wrong

    How is it possible in the gem wheel for free gems that there are 12 spots to win 4 spots for 10 gems, 4 spots for 25 gems, 2 spots for 50 gems and 2 spots for 100 gems but yet the odds of getting anything higher than 10 gems is extremely low. Out of ten spins you get maybe one spin that is over 10 gems which is only the 25 gem wedge the odds of getting something over that is very very very low maybe 1 in 50 if your lucky. POOR POOR POOR odds. Developers need to make it fair. Shame on them for making it take months to get anywhere unless you spend your hard earned money.

    It’s annoying enough that I have to pass each stage with out being shot and destroying anything that appears in my screen as an enemy. But when I try to continue and your ads have fake Xs thats just the last draw. I have to wait for the ads some times when I in between stages. I talking about ads that just pop up for 40 seconds and it wasn’t a continue or a bonus or free spin or anything that would make benefit me in the game and make me want to click and watch an ad. Please fix the fake Xs. I sit through it and then I cannot continue my game. In mean come on now I did my part of the deal.

    TERRIBLE: Complete Redesign

    I don’t know why you’ve done what you’ve done but you’re breaking my heart with this update. I wish you had focused on the current glitches and kept this game as classic as possible. This is now a COMPLETELY different game and not what I originally signed up for. For that, I’m now deleting your game. Be aware newcomers: there will be a lot of disruptive ads throughout the game, not just here and there, but ALL the time rendering the flow almost unplayable. Also, don’t pay for any upgrades, it’s not worth it and a waste of your money. Player be aware.
