- tap 'back' and you 'quit'
Icarus-X is a classic vertical scroll shoot'em up game.
Icarus-X is a simple game about a flying a single spaceship blasting everyone of the million enemies you'll meet. Controls are as intuitive as they can be since you just need to slide your fingertip around to move your ship and fire at the same time. Background 3D graphics are great and sound is what we may expect, in other words, a retro midi music sprinkled with pewpews and booms and so on. Boss fights are really old-school boss fights, filling the screen with so many shots that the game nearly slows down.
Icarus-X has a few draws, though. Of course, we don't mean that it's a unworthy game, but it's true that you have to take care about some little things when you make a conversion from iOs to Android. To pause the game you must tap a tiny button next to the ad instead of just tapping 'menu'. Also, Android users are used to 'back' meaning 'back', not 'quit'. This little things prevent the gain of the fifth star.
This complete version has several game modes, two campaigns and it's ad-free. If you want to test it out first, check out the ad supported version.

One of the best arcade shmups on Android.
It's a wonderful game seems impossible at first but if you persevere you will complete the game . Play on regular mode you'll get used to it. The controls are fine it's a hard game but that's what makes it fun. I loved it on iPhone and now love it on android. Only lets have a world leader board support for android like we get on iPhone please.
Love the old school feel
Beautiful, breathtaking graphics and gameplay. Practice modes, lives, levels, bosses- best raiden style shooter...
Great engine and gfx. Very poor ballancing - can be fixed... Am waiting for devs to play a shooter and wise up in next ver I mean FFS you die instantly when something hits you... Add a shield/life for crying out loud I would so like my money back :'(
