Quite frankly, this is the best shooter that you can play on mobile. It looks incredible, it plays brilliantly, and it's got the sort of compulsion loop that's going to have you sucked in and drooling for more in just a few rounds.

A super-tough platformer that wears its love for the 16bit era on its sleeve. If it's not referencing the classics of the genre, it's refreshing them with some fantastic ideas of its own. You might get stuck, you might get frustrated, but you're going to love almost every second of it.
