PewPew 2 is the paid version of PewPew, a multidirectional shoot’em up game akin to Geometry Wars. It includes extra game modes and features
There’s no plot, there’s no script. We get a spaceship and the goal is to shoot all the triangles, circles and squares that are flying free on the background. That simple. But if you are a passionate of this kind of games you will know that its simplicity it’s its main strength. PewPew 2 includes 7 game modes (2 of which must be unlocked), 5 new unlockable ships with offensive defense, 1 extra campaign, with 3 levels of difficulties and boss figths and many other improvements regardings joysticks, music and rendering.
There are online leader boards to check other people scores, as well as online replays. The relaxing music is quite good and not intrusive at all. As you advanced through levels, you may unlock some new ships with offensive defense (bullets shot in every direction when hit). As the developer says in the app description (which, i have to say, it is gracefully complete and understandable), the high frame-rate is what defines this game. It is real and improve the user experience.
PewPew have been developed by Jean-François Geyelin, who has also launched PewPew (free version). It has to be said that he has well done those apps and his descriptions make clear all the game concerns.
If you’re a shoot’em up games lover, you will love this one. Simple, fast and reliable. Some aspects could be improved, but it deserves its 4 stars rating.
PewPew 2 is the best multidirectional shoot them up on Android.

A few notes:
-On older devices kill as many background app you can, this can considerably increase the smoothness.
-Seriously, kill them all.
-On some devices (such as the Nexus One) the touch screen has trouble handling touches on the same horizontal or vertical axis. That is why by default the joysticks are in diagonal. You can try moving the joysticks to the bottom using the settings menu, but it might result in poor controls.
-Changed Pacifism mode.
-Reset the scores for the Pacifism mode.

What could I say about this game that hasn't already been said about Tetris, Mario, Sonic or...uh...Space Invaders! That's it.
One of the most responsive games to Xperia Play analogue controls.
Very graphical Very Entertaining
Would love to play this but virtual sticks ruin an otherwise great game.
Happy valentines day.
Valentine's Day.... everything explodes into hearts. Nice touch.
Gameplay is smooth, the challenges are fun and the campaign is definitely worth paying for. I like how the visuals take over for sound effects, because there are none, but the visuals give the same feel, you barely even notice. I love it, but expecially o
