    ok well the game needs some fixing up map wise. you find yourself wandering alot looking for keys to doors. I tend to get lost easily in the dark (toodark) and scatterd halls as they fork thru the level.

    THINGS THAT WERE FIXED:
    -make the turn sensitivity the same as the forward and backward
    -smoother finger slide around the arrows to make turning and moving
    smoother then tapping


    NEEDS FIXING:
    -weapons button (majic stick is the only weapon ingame)
    -multiplayer (not before release but maybe in a future update)
    -easier aim (slightly hard to get direct angle to hit an enemy)

    GOOD NOTES:
    -seems liek a long game
    -average graphics (it is the first FPS)
    -auto save on exit (big yes)
    -Different respawn points everytime you start a new game. (adds variety)

    In general its only a beta so it needs some work. Don't expect this to be a $10 app. Its a long game but seems most of the time your lost walking thru halls you cant see in. Is fun for FPS fanatics like me. seems entertaining, even though I was lost alot it was puzzlign to find my way out. and the controls arent that bad once you get used to them. on the Beta alone I rate it a 6/10. needs work, definetely room for improovement but really inst that bad overall.

    yea its interesting. fairly entertaining. I would range the app to be between $1.99-$3.99 as he asks the beta testers for price ranges (what we would pay for it)

    eh not quite as epic as you think, but fun. I rated it a 5/10 since its only a beta. if the developer fixes the bugs and suggestions then it will be epic

    what was the size of the beta group? I'd like to see a few other reviews. Sounds like a great game. 5/10 for a beta is a pretty good score. Especially when it's a fps player rating the game.

    10 is a mighty small beta test group. But having a smaller group decreases the risk of someone sharing the game, so I can understand that. Is there any clipping or lagging when you change rooms, come from dark hallways to a light room? Smooth movement throughout play? the last vids I saw looked rather jerky. Any use of accelerometer at all in the game?

    no accelerometer use at all. and nope everything is smooth. although dude to the sensitivity levels it seems a little laggyish at times but u can tell its not. smooth when u go thru doors (they just sorta dissapear with a jerk) and then theres no difference from going from light to dark

    if you look at the bottom left it shows that the game stays at around 30fps. it changes too fast tonotice a true difference even when constantly shooting.

    Sounds good. Hopefully he's working on all the glitches and can release this month.
