(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full-fledged iOS game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a mobile game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
Space Wingmen is a classic SHMUP (shoot em’ up) by Dreamplay Games with a modern and unique twist. Like most shooters, it can be played with one hand, but in this game, you control your ship on a small touchpad at the bottom of the screen. Most of your controlling is of the wingmen on all sides of you. Your main ship can only move left to right, while you slide your thumb to spread and tighten your wingmen’s formation. It’s kind of tough to describe, but once you actually play the game, the controls are kind of cool. Of course, you can collect gems and upgrade/buy new ships and squads. My only real issue is the usual F2P shenanigans. There are no timers and the ads aren’t bad, but there are 4 different currencies. Yes, FOUR! These are all used for different types of upgrades and purchases. You can earn a lot by just playing the game, but I’m guessing things will change the further you get. Regardless, Space Wingmen is a beautiful looking shooter that is a lot of fun to play. If you don’t mind the usual F2P stuff, it’s definitely worth checking out.
