Ok but a money machine
Hurricane1376 on 6/21/2018
The fact you have to pay for repairs or wait for a timer or pay to speed up with real cash says it all. Shame cause the underlying game is kinda interesting.
pretty good
kilplyztym on 6/19/2018
first off, not a money grab if you have any kind of patience and skill at strategy. if you are quick switching through your weapons and support mods, you can absolutely compete with other players as well as complete solo game missions. if you want a brand new big gun ship right away and you want to decimate everyone, then yes you could spend a lot of money. and honestly if you play anybody’s game regularly, you should spend some money, even say a couple bucks, don’t be a leach if possible, just a thought. you can tip a buck to some barista for a drink that took less than 2 minutes to make, but you can’t pay anything for a game months in the making? weird. now to my critiques. thanks for making some of the bonus items accessible by watching an in game ad. now fix it. often i watch the ad, and then a “sandstorm” error occurs and the gsme resets, and i have to watch a second ad, which usually works the second time. other than that, good job on a fun game.
Arena problems
CJRoland on 6/12/2018
This is a great game I love playing it, it’s just that 4 out of 5 times I try to battle in the arena it kicks me out of the app, besides that it’s an awesome game.
And the game flew over the nest

Hasn’t been updated in a year....bai sandstorm
Bullet r
Dw61623 on 3/14/2018
The bullet r is cool but I can only use it on the alytes but I want to use it my other ships so plz fix this
It’s alright
GR-T8 on 3/5/2018
There’s a large variety of weapons and the ship abilities are each unique so that’s awesome, but there are a few game breaking glitches that have left me stuck in some places and some of the weapons are imbalanced
Gamerkid2277 on 1/13/2018
Good game but very frustrating the controls are pretty bad you can tap on place to shoot and then 20’s later the guns not shooting anymore plus the faction war paring is really bad but it’s a good game idea and has decent graphics.
Money grab oh yeah
Fender B40 on 11/22/2017
I gave this game a chance and like so many others found out what it all about a big money grabbing no go nowhere you go to the arena only to be shot down by someone who’s ship is a little more powerful than yours no thanks
Needs an update
Fennelli11 on 9/2/2017
It's an ok game. Once you hit level 7 things start getting too expensive. The tavern missions are the same over and over again. There needs to be more with better rewards. Not just bolts. The loot after completing a fight is never above level 6. So you have to use crates to get current level weapons and shields. Pretty much the makers of this game made it so you are forced to spend money and it's wrong. It needs an update to be fair.
A con
Lancey-pants on 8/26/2017
Isn't it odd you always "lose your connection" after watching a video for repair and it resets to the point where your ship has to be repaired again? Wait the 20 minutes or watch another video? Even more odd is that it only does just the one time. It is a con just to make you watch a video again. Screw this!
Legit365 on 8/11/2017
I absolutely love this game
Not bad

I love how it's a game where YOU get to choose, it's just a big relief.

Good game
Pretty good game so far
Abaquerizo on 8/6/2017
Been playing for a couple days now, and haven't had any problems with it yet. Load time is quick, upgrades aren't too expensive, and there's a lot of quests to grab that are relatively easy
Great game so far
The gradeschooler on 8/6/2017

m4tty4 on 8/5/2017
A fine game that is playable at least early on without IAP.
vt_cubam on 8/4/2017
Epic is all I need to say. Very addicting, a Must Have 🙌🏽
molstaf on 8/3/2017

Good so far
Game Center connect does not work, not way to save
snedjb on 8/1/2017
Played for awhile. You can grind and build up resources for ships without paying money, but there is no way to save and pick up fresh on different idevice.
This is a awesome game
Deeser66 on 7/29/2017
It is a good game if you are adventurous

This is a great game the only thing is the videos don't work so I'll give it 5 stars when it does
So far so good
Gonzo4285 on 7/20/2017
Good game so far
ProWC on 7/20/2017
This game is overall pretty great but to be able to buy a bronze box cost a lot of cash and the mission we do have to be like 3-5 of all difficulty added together to get it.
It tricked me
Vajvu on 7/20/2017
It tricked me
It's pretty good

I am really enjoying the game so far.
Killjoyv on 7/16/2017
Great games thank you
Garbage Game
Reviewer6934 on 7/16/2017
Quickly become a garbage game. You can not win without buying (with real money) the bolts to try your luck at getting the rare equipment.
Good game
njdavies43 on 7/15/2017
Well made and very enjoyable
Pretty nice
Ethandoan on 7/13/2017
It's ok. It would be nice if there were more ships which would make the game more competitive.
ImmortalArgon on 7/11/2017
Pretty good pretty good passes time for me and i can coast at a good pace
AramisTheGreat on 7/9/2017
It's alright, definitely a time killers but fun game 🕹

Should be called Crash Storm
Mr. Izakaya on 7/9/2017
Crashes or fails to connect to servers multiple times a day, interrupting gameplay. Connected to FaceBook, now it won't open at all. Running on iPhone 7+, iOS 10.3.2
Why you need wi fi?
Miro Gicain on 7/8/2017
This is weird why you need wi fi if you can just disable multiplayer and the leaderboard?
Awsome and easy
Joshufvjgdvhd on 7/7/2017
This game starts off really easy and I thought I was good at it but it got really hard later in the game and it's really a. Challenging game:)
