Ion Assault reviews and comments

Interesting idea, but with the gameplay and management of some kind of dislike. The Charges are digging too long, the enemies are too thick. Quickly bored. Judging by the screenshots further on the game begins something interesting, but take such a simple laziness.

Personally, despite his old school side, I have well appreciated ion assault! Obviously, it is not enough to shoot everything that moves without thinking, you have to anticipate a minimum... and love scoring for wanting to come back when finished...

I Bought it for a penny on a coupon. Years so 10 ago it would be fun to play, but not now. Its Real price does not justify. The Only Advantage-there are collectible cards to the value in about 10r. Thing, so that the purchase with a discount pays off.

You woke up an hour before the gathering on the Runbot, univer, meeting or other event and do not know how to spend this time-you are greeted by Ion Assault. A Fun time killer toy. All about the game is clear on the screenshots. The Hour has passed-forward on business, and this game you never again run = D

Shiny, but disappointing. This game is really nice to look at, but the gameplay is just not there. It feels like Asteroids confined to a tiny box. There was very little sense of urgency, and the controls were awkward. If you're interested in shooters with good particles, I recommend Shatter or Beat Hazard instead.

A Mediocre flying shooter. I didn't like the combat system At all. There is only one weapon that can kill enemies. And to shoot them must fly half, and then all the space. Not like the management system. It is Necessary that the cursor was visible, and then so constantly lost sight. Upset. Not happy.

This is a awesome game of one idea, which, in other things have already managed to melt other developers. The Meaning of the game is very simple, it is a space action arcade with a view of the top, where you fight on a small ship with waves of various enemies and asteroids. Unlike the Sonma of other such games weapons in your fight is your own environment, and more precisely the smallest cosmic particles that your ship as a vacuum cleaner collects and throws out of itself with great acceleration in the enemies. The Game is quite complex, graphically beautiful and bright and has a good physics engine. She's been missing from the steam for a long time, and she's finally back in the THQ collection for a new generation of players. I Advise to buy (especially the price is more than Democratic) and play a couple of evenings.
