A deadly new terrorist group has emerged. The Talon seeks vengeance for an unknown crime, commanding seemingly unlimited resources and striking against innocents with precision, efficiency, and savage force. They take no prisoners.

But neither do we.

Game plays similar to the old arcade classic missle command , except you are on water firing from ships. There is a decent story but what stands out is the ability to purchase better ships , upgrades and you can also replay any mission to gain more resources and better stars.
Taking down enemies gets a bit hard with the regular missiles so will be depending support attacks and powers.
Overall a decently priced game that works fine and is a good time killer.

An awesome remake of a classic, I dare even say, "the classic". The game I refer to is missle command. Yes, the 1980 classic gets some rennovations in Bane's side-scroller action shooter, though the "side-scrolling" is simulated but still a game that really tests your timing and prediction skills. Best played with a touchscreen but works equally as well with a gaming mouse or decent track pad or track ball (my fav). It's a fun little escape game, that will have you going "just one more time." At $8, its worth the price, on sale - it's a "no pass up."

Graphics = Decent (runs smooth on my i5-HD3000 lappie)
Sounds = Very good (immursive)
Gameplay = Missle Command style Shooter
Replayability = Yes (in challenges this game presents)
Controls = Yes (just point and click, the rest is up to you)

A Simple Game but Fun! [KAMGUSTA's REVIEW]

I'll begin by saying this is an iOS port, so it was thought for touchscreens. By the way, it works great also with the mouse! :-)

I am very impressed by how much fun this game is. You play as the artillery man of a battle ship (in later part of the game, of a fleet!) and you have to shoot down enemy ships, helicopters and aircrafts... taking also care of all they can throw at you! While you advance the game you will be able to upgrade you ships and to gain access to different weapons: beaconing, EMPs, time distortion bombs...

Graphic is nice, sound is pleasant, story is unobtrusive (i skipped all the cutscenes... all you need to know is that you have to destroy the usual villain and his personal army!) and there are also last level's bosses to fight against!

Yes, it is not a blockbuster nor an AAA game (it should be a port of a mobile game!), and this should be clear by by now, thanks also to videos and screenshots from the game page, but it's fun and addictive and I evaluate this as the most important aspect of a game!
It reminds me of some neo-geo coin-ops of the '80, and this is definitely a plus!

Unfortunately is does not last long: just 2-3 hours. It also does not have a great repeatability because there aren't different difficult levels or different game modes. :(

Advice: use the keyboard for launching the special attacks!

Best played with Mouse (and Keyboard) (or iOS)

This game is simply amazing. Get this one on a Steam sale, and you will have great fun playing it. Even though it's a bit short it sure is a great "old school" shooter. 9/10 .

Fun game, but it is rather short, you can play through the whole campaign in around 4 hours, which is a bit dissapointing for a game that costs $8. There is however room for replayability trying out the different ships once you earn enough oil to unlock them with all the upgrades.
What is a bit annoying is that you can't get all the achievements even if you do a full playthrough earning four stars on all levels; you need at least another full playthrough to get the neccessary kills for the achievements.

Overall I would give it 7/10.

Good awesome challenging game. Felt like an old school shooter but with a tactical feel. Loved it, better than what I expected. Reminds me of old arcade games like 1942 but with battleships, and reminded me of games like jackal from nes. Pure nostalgia & old school game feel but with a modern awesome twist. It is definitely worth the price. Great and smooth graphics.

I like boats and ships very much, I enjoyed the main ship with flak gun backup and the 2nd ship with the flak gun and the helicopter. I never used any other ships because they seemed inferior all around. I beat the entire game on the first playthrough I enjoyed it that much! I only wish there was more ships, that was my only complaint :).

Decent time killer. When they say "Over 30 levels" they mean 31.. There are just 31 levels in this game. I've run through it twice just to save up oil and buy and fully upgrade every ship. Now that that's done I wish there was some endless mode or wave mode where it gets harder and harder. It's not a bad game just needs a little more content. Grab it while it's on sale though, worth every bit of $3.19, not sure if I'd pay the $7.99 or not.

Decent missile defense game, but very short - I finished all 31 levels in about 2 hours (I think it was over 2, not certain how steam rounds that), with replaying a few levels in that total. There's ratings on the levels to go back and shoot for, but after that unless replaying levels for numerical achievements holds your attention the game's done.

I wouldn't suggest at full price, but worthwhile if picked up at a price that matches the 2-3 hour length.

Great little 2-D naval battle game. Didn't expect much in the beginning but as upgrades became available, missions became more enjoyable.

This one allows you to succeed, so all achievements are attainable without a significant investment in time.

While there are a few keyboard options available (Reload, EMP, and Time Warp), all you need is a mouse to play (but be prepared to do some clicking...lol).

Only drawback that I can see is that there is no "Quit" button, but hitting the [esc] key is their substitute for one (gives you the option to quit). Not mentioned anywhere, but hey, now you know...

Fun game. Check it out.

(Tip: to get the hardest achievement "Skyhawk Massacre" without a lot of grinding, replay Mission 17 over and over and let your Harriers from the carrier do the work. There are 12 skyhawks that attack right off the bat, so you can rack them up fairly quickly without an unreasonable amount of effort...)

An enjoyable mashup of missile command meets 1942 that will suck you in an cripple your wrists.

Far from perfect the lack of hotkeys for specials means you will require twitchy and acurate wrist flicks and a certian degree of grinding, replaying levels is required to purchase upgrades if you want to get max stars for each level.

About 1/3 the way through and its already starting to get a tad ott with what goes on at once.

Runs fine FHD with max settings on an i7 2.4ghz, r9 265x laptop.

Recived as part of a bundle well worth a buy if your an old school arcade game fan and is avail under £3.49, not sure I would pay more for it than that.

Yeah, OK. I love this little game. It's quirky, fun, and easy to play. Got it in a very inexpensive bundle. way, WAY worth it. Got my giggles and fun.

A mix of 1942, missle command and a few others. WELL worth playing.

pros:
-definately fun. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
-runs on linux
-simple controls
-easy learning curve
-kids say female lead is "way awesome"

cons:
-scaling issue? (FIXED!)
-Achievements do not work under Linux
-Devs have no Linux test box. Uh... takes 20 min to fix that?...It's unity3d?
-no overall volume control (can adjust music only)
-cannot shoot into/under the left side overlay. Needs "expert mode" where keys are used instead of the overlay.
-game is somewhat short. 31 levels. Could use more.

Have yet to try Big Picture'ing it or using a gamepad. But so far, AWESOME!

"Thank you Taxpayers!"

This game is surprisingly fun. It plays a bit like Missile Command. You play the part of a ship or fleet trying to defend against incoming enemies. You have to fire ahead of them because your weapons have travel time. You can upgrade your ships, buy new ones. It's a very short game, 2-3 hours. There's not a lot of variety in the ships. But it was a fun way to pass the time. I certainly wouldn't recommend this at full price, but if it hits 75%+ off, one of the Steam sales, then it may be worth a look.

If your looking for a little game that will make you feel a little challenged with some basic aspects of gaming this will do it for you, but if your looking for a game with more playtime than 2 hrs this will not do it for you.

Bite size bit of fun, buy if you like bullet hells and missiles a-plenty. 1 Con, no save feature, so end the game in one sit if you wish to go all the way.

A great way to kill a couple hours if you get it on sale. I thoroughly enjoyed the few hours it took to play it.

This is a fun casual game that can be finished in 3 or 4 hours. It's worth $4 priced at $1 / hour of fun.

You play a gunner, on a ship that is captained by a lovely and competent young woman. The enemy faction is named Talon and headed by a guy who wears a red tablecloth on his head. Talon delights in hijacking airplanes and your ship. You have to defend against small bomber planes, fighters, stealth bombers, helicopter gunships, 747's, small inflatables and various missiles.

The challenge comes from the fact that your captain is steering the ship from left to right and the enemy tends to attack right to left and eventually from all directions. Your missile launcher holds a maximum of 5 missiles ( before needing to reload ) and different enemies can take 1,2 or 3 shells before they are destroyed. You have to prioritize targets and make judgements, based on relative velocity, regarding the impact point of when and where your missiles will hit.

You can use barrels of oil, to purchase friendly ships, that will sail beside you. You can purchase power ups such as one that will slow down time.
