10 word description: Endless faller. Tilt controls. Unlocks, outfits. Game Center leaderboards / achievements.

10 word review: Decent looking but incredibly dreary to play with loathsome controls.

The good news: The “Metal Slug was a great game” graphic style is not too bad.

The bad news: The tilt controls – plus tapping to deploy parachute, trigger weapons – are horrible. I persevered and fiddled with the responsiveness but I just couldn’t face playing the game any more than I needed to for this review. The gameplay, such as it is, is so tedious that even perfect controls wouldn’t salvage it. Every drop/run/whatever I was praying for death rather than striving to fall further than the last time.

Arcadelife verdict: I didn’t like it. That’s probably fairly obvious.
