Press Reviews:

"The game’s visuals are, quite simply, awesome. Each planet is highly detailed and every weapon and explosion is a dazzling treat of lighting and particle effects. I would have unequivocally recommended Darkside if it cost any reasonable amount. However, considering you can download it for free, you have no excuse not to check out this most excellent arcade shooter." : Touch Arcade : 90%

"This is a fantastic twin-stick shooter, both in its free and paid versions, and if you have any kind of love for the genre then it cannot be resisted. With 100 missions to play through, and indeed missions which are challenging right from the off, Darkside is absolutely ravenous for attention." : 148 Apps : 90%

"With the use of lighting and particle effects, this is a feast for the eyes. With no barrier to entry, and no in-app purchase design model, it's easy to recommend Darkside to all fans of arcade games and twin-stick shooters." : AppSpy : 80%

"Darkside is a great-looking game, the glittering light show of explosions and weapons fire is a sight to behold." : Pocket Gamer : 80%

"Darkside is a wonderfully smooth game, with some breath-taking nebula backdrops and barely a drop in the frame-rate, even when the action is at its most frantic. There's an awful lot to love about Darkside!" : Modojo : 90%

"Get the free arcade mode. Play it for a few minutes. Shove your eyes back into your head. Buy the full game." : Arcade Life : 95%

"It's great for a quick dose of asteroid blasting and the mission mode provides a good balance to the game which should keep you coming back for more." : AppGamer : 80%

Customer Feedback:

"The graphics are beautiful, and the lighting fantastic, on the new iPad this is a gem."

"All in all the game is a little diamond and for sure, great eye candy! The unlock price makes this game a steal."

"The gameplay is like things you've played, and yet not really like anything you've played. It's hard to explain, which is frankly a very good thing!"

"The arcade mode is one of the nicest shoot'em'up style games I've played in a while."

"This game offers a true and very enjoyable arcade experience with drop dead eye popping graphics that you'll drool over. Awesome fun!"
