I am usually half joking when I through out the term Game of the Year, but I fully believe Kero Blaster is well deserving of such praise as it has completely redefined how I think about a certain type of gaming. I used to joke that the visual novel is the best genre for iOS gaming because it cannot be done wrong. And pixel came along and showed me that you can make a fun action game with touch controls. I feel like my eyes have been opened as both a gamer and a developer.
Kero Blaster is a pure joy and if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch. While it is great that there is a PC version for those who do not have iOS devices, I think skipping this on iOS is doing yourself a great disservice. And if you already picked it up on PC? Double dip. The guy deserves the money.
