GamerBytes Top 5 Games Launch XNA Community Games - "Despite the ridiculous premise (alternate universe where e-mail is sent via galactic battles), this game is quite fun."

Gamasutra's Top 10 XNA Community Games Of 2008 - "It forgoes the usual twin stick arena fare that we've come to know and love -- instead showing an intriguing set of game mechanics melded into a rather sweet maze game."

Destructoid - "If you're in the mood for some back-to-basics shooting with a few cheeky new adjustments and a difficulty level tweaked to perfection, then this is definitely a game for you. (8/10)"

Diehard GameFAN - "Sometimes a simple idea is also the one that is the most fun."

PlayThisThing - "The most original aspect of the game is the difficulty setting, which ranges from 0 to 100; at 100, this is an amazingly frenetic game, while at 0, even a useless wanker like me can play."
