Extreme ratings for Android version of Battle Squadron

Our award winning Amiga shooter Battle Squadron has received a staggering 4.8 star average from 50+ enthusiastic Android players !!
Since the recent release of Battle Squadron on Android devices, gamers are really starting to take notice of this great retro game. And like on iOS (Amazing App Store ratings for Battle Squadron ONE), an incredible 90% of the players are rating Battle Squadron with 5 stars… by far surpassing most other popular games on the App Stores !!
We are flabbergasted that a game originally developed in 1989 is receiving such ratings. Maybe the longevity comes from the excellent pixel graphics, or maybe just the large number of weapon upgrades? It could also be the excellent retro tunes, or the perfect adaptation of this classic game to contemporary mobile devices… or maybe it is just the one-of-a-kind game play?
If you have not yet checked it out for yourself then see what current players from throughout the world are saying about “The Amiga Shooter!!” of all time:

Setzt doch den Amiga Hit “Rock’n roll” um. Wäre ein super Titel um den gyroskop im Handy zu nutzen.” (German)

The attention to details like polished control options, music jukebox, display options, achievements, not to mention simultaneous 2 player on tablets make this a delight. Thank you so much for reviving my favorite Amiga shmup! Looking forward to this company (hopefully) doing many more games like this!”
