A tendril of black smoke belching from the bullet-riddled hide of my Hawker Hurricane, I swoop dangerously close to terra firma before jerking my iPod clockwise just before I hit the dirt. Soaring back upwards through the sky, I eviscerate a Jerry bomber with a hail of machine gun fire... Hell yeah! This truly is exhilarating, edge-of-your-seat stuff!
They say cats always land on their feet but that certainly ain't the case for intrepid feline adventurer Ace, the star of Astro Crow's innovative twist on the endless running genre, who having come a cropper on an alien planet instantly finds himself under attack and on the run from an outlandish array of extraterrestrial nogoodniks.
Not since Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" has it been this important to prevent leakage of story spoilers, and iFanzine dutifully complies in this in-depth review. If you're familiar with the terms "Metroidvania" or "Castleroid," then heads-up, because you'll surely want to look into this one!

What's this then, an iPhone game that takes a timely satirical swipe at the unscrupulous financial fat cats who've all but brought the world economy to its knees? Sadly, and in spite of Greedy Bankers boasting a unique political cartoon-ish art style, in name only. Instead Alistair Aitcheson's assured debut is a surprisingly compelling and sassy twist on the ol' Tetris style falling block/color matching puzzle mechanic.
