The Good: Sexy approach to dual stick shooters works, good amount of guns, aliens are weird, grindhouse feel is a nice touch, OpenFeint support
The Bad: Controls are a tad stiff, the game is pretty hard pretty fast, that sexy power move is awkward, almost no content
Dual stick shooters are very popular on the Apple touch devices and Daisy Mae tries to cash in on that with a sexy flair. The game doesn’t fail hard, but there are better ones out there. The game has a grindhouse feel to it with the 50’s style background and grain filter. The game is supposed to look bad ass and edgy and pulls it off pretty well.
Daisy Mae is a busty alien womper that you control with dual Tommy guns. You just shoot every alien on screen and rack up the highest score you can get. Yep, that’s it. There is only one background level and the music gets monotonous. You can use your own music, but at the cost of the game’s sound effects. There is a good foray of guns, but most casual players won’t be able to survive long enough to see most of them. The aliens look weird, but they have neat designs. Once you shoot enough baddies Daisy does this weird crouching thing that kills all enemies on screen. It’s supposed to be a sexy move, but there’s nothing sexy about it. The game’s controls are a bit funky and a tad stiff, but there are options to even have the game practically play itself.
The game does support OpenFeint which is great and has leaderboards, but with the menial amount of content you could feel like your two bucks could have been spent elsewhere. I hope the sequel allows for more content and more sexiness, and if you play long enough you unlock some pretty sexy costumes.
