Fans of arcade-style shooters such as R-Type, DoDonPachi Resurrection, and Shogun: Bullet Hell Shooter will tell you that futuristic spacecraft are faster than a Ford Escort with go-faster stripes, and move with the kind of grace that would put the Red Arrows to shame.
However, the reality is that moving a large hunk of metal through zero-gravity is a difficult affair, requiring precision and patience - two attributes which will stand you in very good stead with Gene Effect.
Gene Effect is a challenging and often annoying experience, but it's worth sticking with and offers a gripping sci-fi storyline which is unique on the Google Play market
