Game is now compatible with 14.4 iOS update
Many thanks for fixing the game !
Thanks for the bug fix very much appreciated
Good app, but crashed recently.
Tried to open the app, watch the logo, and all of a sudden, it crashed. Sorry for the inconvenience as I’ll never play it
anymore because of another bug.
Great Game, Devs please read
I used to play this game all the time. About 6 months ago, I played it very often until I won almost every time. Great game,
definitely worth the 4 dollars.
However, now whenever I open the game, it immediately crashes. Like right away, 100% of the time. I even redownloaded to make sure
'I enjoy the game a lot, but currently it crashes on startup every time. Even deleted the app and reinstalled'
'Was a 4 star shooter, but devs polished it to 5!'
'Awesome 80’s synth wave retro style space shooter! I liked it before the update, but now I LOVE it! The devs added a cool
intro and much better menu interface, plus the style and gameplay is really awesome! \n\n If you like solid polished space
shooters and 80’s synth wave style, this is for

'Exactly what the App Store needs'
'Awesome shooter. Some upgrading which is simple but allows you to customize your style of play. Amazing sound design and catchy
graphics that are retro in just the right way. \n\nGive. Me. More.'
'Great Soundtrack, Great Gameplay'
'No micro transactions ... worth the money. Great gameplay and upgrading your ship is a fair grind. Procedurally generated
environments keep things fresh.'
'Great game great updates'
'Thank for a premium game without in app purchases and thank you for the great updates that make the game so much better. Great
job developers !!'
'I have to apologize for my past review. \nThese developers are awesome. Very awesome.\n\nTo start-they originally released a
FANTASTIC take on the roguelike/shmup genre. It was a full premium experience from the get-go, and they\'ve released a few updates
that have just made it better and better, e
'Fantastic game, but...'
'It needs two straightforward things to be five stars.\n\nFirst, iCloud save support needs to be implemented. I have no interest
in grinding and getting better chips on my iPad and iPhone both. One unified save file would be ideal.\n\nSecond, controller
support!!\n\nThat being said, I love this game
'Black Paradox is a fun time kill. Doesn’t take long to play (win/lose) and the different droid, power-ups, and chips are fun to
tinker with. I’d like to see the ability to save previously purchased chips to further customization and add new bosses. Overall
great for a few dollars'
'Im afriad i wasted good 4 dollars on this game'
'I heard this game was fun so i downloaded it and played and then i figured out that you get killed so dam much and the pint is
that you keep dying and dying like kill loot and repeat i dont like that and theres no new ship you can get so im deepley upset
that i may wasted my money'
'Doesn’t save progress'
'Is this a bug?? I keep on repeating the game every time i close the app. I had to start over again with the first boss.'
'Update please!!! More levels. Awesome game.'
'Dead Cells in space!'
'Amazing presentation. From the VHS intro to the retro synth-rock soundtrack, the vibrant neon color palette, and the butter
smooth controls; this shooter is both a throw back to some of the very best side scroller shooters from the past to the present.
Some weapons seem “useless” at first, but
'Sooo good! Love the soundtrack.'
'Fast paced, fun to look at and play. Love the throwback vibe. Happy to spend what I did to get it. Great fun!'
'Ba du du du daa I’m lovin it'
'On the App Store there are only a few existing bullet hell games (which I love) and these games are my favorite genre of games. I
wish I could play a good bullet hell anywhere and Black Paradox lets me do that. 👍'
'This game compared to super hydorah is more fun, more action, the movement is more precise and responsive. It also delivers much
better pixel art graphic detail along with the amazing retro music soundtracks which makes this game superb. Let’s not forget to
mention that you have health bars in th
'Fun game with annoying behavioral bugs'
'This is a perfectly designed side scrolling shooter in my mind. I like that even though it’s Rogue-like, you can preserve
upgrades to make progressing through the game easier as time goes on. \n\nHowever, I have found that I have to force myself to
die in order to get the Garage to display new
'Beautiful 80s neon lights and particle bursts make this game look incredibly impressive on my Xs. Black Paradox is fun, quick,
and perfect for any fan of shoot em ups. I’m not sure if there are any additional characters or vehicles in the works, but I’d
definitely appreciate some other fun colo
'Still working out some bugs'
'Great game, I love the VHS-style design, the music, the gameplay, and the boss fights are challenging enough.\n\nSome issues:
\n\nWhen you beat the game and then play again right after, it takes you back to the final level. No power ups or anything, you
start the game over but in the last level. If
'Great game, needs cloud save.'
'Just beat the final boss! I’m hooked! Hope you guys keep adding to it...this game is awesome!'
'This game is so sick!'
'Love it. It is a thrill! Can be played in very short bursts. Doesn’t require internet access, perfect for playing in airplane
mode. And the touch screen controls are impeccable! Very, very responsive. Works great even on the tiny iPhone SE screen. Smooth

'Jamestown + Rogue Legacy = ❤️❤️❤️'
'If you like bullet hell games and roguelites, you should stop reading this and go play Black Paradox! Oh my god this game is
great. Controller support has me giddy. \n\nThanks for your incredible work, devs!!!'
'You guys did a very good job with the game. The soundtracks are cool and it is tough and addictive. Please add some cool stuff
into the game it will make this game more better for everyone. I hope you guys see this review. Keep up the good work.'
'Incredible and colorful'
'Super fun side scrolling space shooter. Very colorful and a easy time killer. Addicted to it since I bought it and I love how it
randomizes so you are never stuck with the same enemy patterns.'
'Please fix controls'
'Can you add an auto shoot feature so it’s easier to control the ship with 1 finger to dodge bullets? Other than that great
'I wanna know when the soundtrack can be downloaded if it is downloadable at all.'
'I was waiting for this thing to come out for a while, and when it finally did, It was just as good as I thought!'
'Great Game, Small Fixes'
'This game is actually incredible. It’s fun and fast paced with an interesting upgrade system. It can be challenging with just
the right amount of difficult and enemies. The only thing I’d look to fix is some frame drops!'
'⭐️Best Game Ever🦄!!'
'Such A Fun Game!! Provides Hours of Entertainment!! An Absolute Joy!! 10/10 Review⭐️🦄'
I feel like this game had a lot of effort input into it, however some things just don’t get along with me. The main premise is
awesome, a space craft game where you shoot enemies. However it is poorly thought out. This would only be a 4 star but after
getting an iPhone SE instead of my iPhone 6 (whi
I love the game, but can’t run it
I have an iPhone 11, and I remember I used to play this game all the time, then I got busy with moving. Now when I wanted to play
it again, I can’t because it immediately crashes.
Keeps crashing. I have a iPhone 11. Downloaded twice other than that awesome game when I could play.
The app is great and all but the only bad thing is that it drains your battery pretty quick. I played a 3 minute game from 66% and
it went down to 61%. My phone was getting hot too, while there’s others games like street fighter and NBA Jam, my phone never
gets hot and my battery is still great.
Too much dodging not enough shooting
Just feels like I’m only dodging bullets, I would rather be shooting amazing things rather than just being stressed out about a
million things hitting me on the screen (most of which I can’t see with my thumb in the way) I gave up after a couple bosses.
Wouldn't leave a review unless I had to pay mo
Doesn’t save my game
When I beat the “insane brothers” and close the app and I play again I have to go against them again even though I beat them
Fun game when I can move
It’s a great game but when you can’t move to dodge bullets it’s not that fun. Every run both sides of the screen are
unresponsive and the end result is death. I keep trying because I like the game. Hopefully it’s a bug that can be fixed. Playing
on an iphonex. Fix the controls and I’d give it five s
Runs great but makes the phone really warm
It’s good but not great in my opinion, I would like to see inclusion of a virtual analog stick and some virtual buttons for the
different functions. It might help if you didn’t have to have it in landscape or horizontal direction.
