Decent idea but poor execution
It’s a fun game on the surface, but so much of what it actually is takes away from any enjoyable experience. It starts out relatively easy, but it quickly works up to taking quite a while clearing away planets. I'll break this into parts.
First, the upgrades are borderline useless after a while. Upgrading power eventually makes no difference the farther you get, gravity and spawn rate don't even do anything, as far as I can tell, and the accuracy barely increases as you upgrade that, and the offline earnings are a joke. You can level it up to 50 (which costs a lot over a long time) and you'll come back to maybe $1-2k, not even enough for an upgrade in further stages.
Second, there are 4 unlockable bombs, but the only way to get them is to spend $50 to get diamonds, and unlocking them that way. As of now there is no way to get them by playing, which is kind of stupid. I get they want to make a profit, but seeing as they hit you with an ad after every planet you destroy it becomes a little annoying.
In the game's defense though, I think it's a great concept that, with some work, can change a 2 star rate into a 4 or 5 star rate. This is voodoo though, so it could take a nose dive and get worse. I'll keep the game though, in the hopes that they do at least do something good with the game.
Almost.. but now quite
Theirs two issues I have with the game.
1. The time giving after aiming is almost non existent, you are forced to tap fairly frequently where you wanna hit while trying to select bombs/missiles and it’s annoying. I get the planets rotate but the time for the aiming could last slightly longer..
2. From what I’ve seen, there’s no way to get the diamond currency when playing the game. No small quest, or ever 10th planet 1 diamond or nothing. You want to use some cool power up weapons? You have to spend money for those diamonds. No grinding way at all.
Aside those, the game is interestingly satisfying and a nice time killer, stress reliever, plain ol’ game. And you get more weapons as you destroy certain amounts of planets. But once those are unlock, there’s no grinding way to get the weapons that cost diamonds :/

Fun concept. However, needs improvement. For example, money earned while away is atrocious. After having slept for 6 hours, i awake to see i earned a whopping $2144, so i watched a video to double that, and didn't get ANY of the money. Also, i earned that amount in 5 minutes of bombing a planet. Fix the amount earned and fix the issue with us not getting it.
No way to earn diamonds? Come on, there should ALWAYS be a way to earn “special in game currency” by playing. Hell, you have enough ads going and you have a lot of other fun games Voodoo, you can afford to let us earn diamonds, even if its slowly.
Also, amount of money earned per bomb should be upgradable. $5 no matter what level you’re on and how much each upgrade starts to cost, its a great way to lose players and downloads as well.
Good and fun but flawed
First things first you have to watch an ad after every level so unless you pay for the ad free version it is just plain awful. However, if you do pay for the ad free version (like I did, which was only a couple of bucks) it’s a fairly decent time passer and great to play now and then, especially while... sitting on the throne, shall we say?
Secondly, there are four weapons that you simply cannot unlock through playing the game. Doesn’t matter how long you play. Doesn’t matter how much you grind, unless you pay money, and a lot of it, you can not get these weapons. I did not pay for the unlockable weapons, but I can’t see a scenario in which $50 is worth it for a game I play while taking a crap.
That is my honest review.
This is a very fun game. I was planning to make one like this but voodoo or whatever did it for me. I love it!!!!! Only thing is i would like sound effects at least or music because i hate playing with no sound but besides that i love it!. Also another thing. Honestly fun at the beginning but as you get farther like planet 72 and higher it is hard to make money and upgrade stuff so i have to be honest lol i did use time and date and i cheated and my “bombs” where locked so i have to restart. I think maybe it would be better with a reboot like the other game but that has balls and you can buy a upgrader or something but resets the game but is worth it
Horrible execution of a good idea
PLEASE READ BEFORE PLAYING! TL;DR AT BOTTOM!
1. No reason to play the game after passing level 73 and getting the “All” unlock.
2. Other active items require you to spend upwards of $100. There’s no other way to get the currency.
3. “Offline earnings” only give you about 1% of what you would’ve earned if you had just left the game open. Completely useless.
4. Money you get doesn’t scale. You will always get $5 per rocket hit.
5. It is only to the consumers’ detriment to actually destroy the planet, the whole purpose of the game, because the player would earn more money doing nothing and grinding the layers away. On top of that, once the planet is destroyed, the player gets an ad 90% of the time unless they’re fast enough to destroy the planet within a few seconds, in which case you get an ad on the second planet you destroy 100% of the time.
6. No resets so no replayability.
7. All upgrades besides firing rate are useless since everything else actually lowers your profit.
8. Planets are harder than boss fights
TL;DR: Voodoo is a company who makes incredibly horribly designed apps, wants to squeeze everything out of the consumer, and to leave you wishing for your time back.

This could be a great game, but it falls wells short. The first couple dozen planets and bosses are a hoot, slicing through a planet and imploding it is quite satisfying.
Unfortunately a variety of design choices keep the game from being fun for more than a couple hours. Upgrading your abilities past level 50 or so is a pursuit of finishing returns, especially the laughable offline earning. While there’s some interesting variety in bosses, the planets are essentially all the same. Once you’ve unlocked all the bombs (the ones you can unlock without paying anyway) there’s no compelling reason to keep playing.
I really want to keep playing this game, but it doesn’t give me a reason to. There doesn’t seem to be a point.
A couple things...
It’s a good game just a few things I wish could happen.
1. Bigger explosions!. I level up and spend HOURS trying to get level 100 on “power” but the more I level the more I feel my time and effort on the game is going to waste.
2. “Offline earnings”. Sometimes I work 12-14 hours shifts at my job. When I go on break I won’t check it hoping the offline earnings will just dominate the income for me but when I look at it, it would only be 3-4,000 and that would also be a waste of my time.
3. Spawn rate. I completely maxed it out before I reached level 100 and I saw a slight difference just not a major difference. Just not as much missiles popped on my screen as I thought would happen.
4. More weapons. Maybe add some more weapons to the game instead of other players stuck with the same weapons every time.
5. Add more bosses. The ones now are cool but they get boring to look at after every time.
6. did I mention...BIGGER EXPLOSIONS!
Good from the looks of it but bad on the inside
Voodoo normally has good games, but this game is probably the worst game I’ve seen in my life. I got an ad before destroying a planet, the game thought I destroyed it so gave me an ad, when I come back without destroying it.
1. It took me like 3 minutes just to destroy the rock/crust layer of the planet... Seriously?
2. The ads make me want to quit before starting.
3. Look, I know you want to make a profit, but you should have added rebirth, where if you beat level 73, you rebirth to get diamonds, probably 10 for first rebirth, then keep adding 5 to your first rebirth and get that much for your second rebirth, 15, etc. etc, then you also get 1.5% more for each rocket hit.
4. What’s the point of upgrading, I upgraded the power and it did nothing, upgraded accuracy and I forgot why I even downloaded the game, did cash per idle, I went off the game for an hour and went back on and I literally only got 7$.
Now voodoo, don’t take any of this offensively, but you honestly should have added the rebirth to turn it into a 3-5 rating.
A Game Made to Make Money
From the advertisements for the game to the gameplay itself it’s clear the game is meant to do one thing, make money. Which is fine usually, that’s what most apps are built to do. But this one throws it in your face, and doesn’t even provide decent player oriented gameplay to make up for it. Even if you don’t watch an ad to double your earnings, it still shows an ad. It has a banner ad at the bottom which makes touching the bottom of the planet really inconvenient. And they have no save state. If you close the app and reopen it, the progress on the level disappears. Really hard for levels like 73 that take hours to beat.
A decent game but needs some work
I have been playing this game for a few now and got really far into it and it got to the point that it said prestige mode unlocked and there was nothing I could do because I didn’t want to prestige, I had no choice so it set me back to level 1. And the ads and the in app purchases are very terrible. Make a game that makes people happy and will come back to your games, not push them away with ads. I get some ads here and there for profit but not this many. Could use more levels and more unlocks for different missiles and them being more powerful.
It was an alright game, but the “pay to win” aspect is incredibly overpriced. And when you log on after being gone for a bit, you can get “offline earnings”. Half the time you don’t even get the earnings. And if the option to “double it” by watching a video pops up? Don’t click it. Because then you don’t get a single bit of money.
This game seems to have bugs like this that frustrate you to the point where it makes you feel like the only way to get ahead is to pay. I liked it at first. But now I feel cheated and no longer wish to play.

Wondering why when I open the game and it says I made 10,000 let’s call them dollars. And I hit to get it doubled and when I close out he ad I only have 4000 dollars?? Otherwise not a bad game. Giving 4 stars until that is fixed then 5 star game.
One more question. On your app support link, what if you just have ideas for games but don’t know anything about the next steps?? Do y’all help with those type situations??
Good for when your bored
It’s a good game for when your bored but WAY to many adds (I got 4 adds in a 5-8 min period) but overall is fun. The offline feature needs to be fixed a bit, I can go offline for 8-10 hours and only make about 5k so it’s not even worth upgrading till fixed. The weapons need to be a bit stronger, gets annoying how weak they can be. But overall a good game for free and good to play when bored
The game is enjoyable but the more you play the more tedious it gets and I think it’s because of the lack of control you have. The special weapons are fired from random directions and that makes it impossible to use them strategically. It becomes a process of waiting and tapping. The missiles that constantly go off can be controlled but the further you go along the less they do, even if you spend all your money on power upgrades, so they’re meh.
By AIG 4u2
This game is very fun in the beginning. But it starts to get tedious once you are trying to unlock all the bombs. As well as the continuous amount of ads that pop up, which gets annoying if you just want to keep playing the game.
Also I don’t know if it’s just my phone (IPhone 7plus) but I have not been able to collect my offline earnings especially when I try the 2x earnings. That could be a bug.
But overall enjoyable game to play.
Update broke the game
Fun game but that update today broke the game for me. It’s showing that I’m on level 1 planet except there is no planet there. I’ve still got all the upgraded things aka power, spawn rate, gravity and such but no bombs are dropping. No planet to drop the bombs on though. All the special bombs say they are ready to be used but clicking them doesn’t do anything.
By RexX Fury
This game was fun at first, but once you get all the bombs, the game is pathetic. $50 FOR ONE SHOT?!? HELL NO! YOU ARE JUST A GREEDY DEVELOPER WHO WANTS MONEY! YOU PURPOSELY PUT ADS IN YOUR GAMES SO IT FORCES PEOPLE TO BUY NO ADS! $3? FOR NO ADS?!? OUTRAGE! AT LEAST MAKE A BETTER LAST BOMB!! PLS IT WAS FUN BUT ONCE YOU GET ALL BOMBS ITS POINTLESS! It’s just the last bomb is pathetic. We work hard to get in but all we get is a repeat of what we already have? Why not make a way that every time you beat a galaxy, you earn 10 diamonds! Nobody will buy your trash in app purchases!
Voodoo, I love your games but how you put ads and the in app purchases make me hate you!
$100 to unlock 4 abilities
With no real intention or purpose besides idly blowing up planets, this is an odd game for sure. There’s no tutorial, but the lack of content renders that a non-issue. It’s repetitive, but oddly calming. The mechanics have a lot to be desired as there is minimal interaction with any of the abilities, including lacking the ability to aim them. My biggest problem with this game however is the lack of any way to make the in-game currency of gems besides straight-up buying them micro-transaction style, and it being horrendously expensive. To unlock 4 powers it would cost a player $100. No thanks.
Has so much potential wasted
First I didn’t even play this game yet but I always expect ads so voodoo can make a quick buck, however I love the games that they make if you guys in voodoo could focus on the game first instead of ads I think you could make even more money than you did. Next I rated 2 stars for all the other games I played from you all. And finally, I feel like having to play for stupid weekly memberships is a little much. I hope you all make the appropriate changes.
Dumb game mechanics
Whenever you close out the game, any progress on a planet you make is lost. So if you are close to destroying a planet but you have to leave the game for a while, you have to do the entire planet again. Also, offline earning is a waste of money. Never upgrade it. Which is dumb because it seems worthwhile. Also, I have played the game for a while and noticed that there is no way in the game to get diamonds other than in app purchases. Now that is just taking advantage of the players. Not cool
It’s a good game to waste time. Like most tap games it has the ability to play off line. Has. Unfortunately, it does not. You can play into getting extra money on passive play, and when you return it shows the extra currency you acquired. You can even watch an add for (x2) of the value. Here’s where the app glitches. You won’t get it. Somewhere in the app it won’t give you the passive money you’ve earned.
Ads, ads and more ads
Let’s cash grab the player after every completed zone with ads AND display ads at the bottom of the screen. I’m not going to shed out money to remove ads that is blatantly in your face like this, I’ll just find another idle app to play. I thought “tap to riches” was rediculous but didn’t immediately display ads after every step of completing an objective.
Stayed around playing this app until it asked for a review. Have fun if you enjoy ads or push out $$ just to get a feel of the game. Noping out here.
Doesn’t work properly
First off this game is kind of ridiculous with the amount of tapping they expect you to do. But they also have this offline earnings thing, where you earn in game currency while you’re offline. It said i had earned 2500 and i could watch an ad to double it. Well it looked more like it halved it. I only had 1000 after the ad. This game could be a lot more interesting if they slowed it down and made it more thought intensive rather than just how many bombs you can try to aim at one spot
