My first impressions of this game were completely wrong. At a glance, it would be easy to write this off as a cross between Geometry Wars and Asteroids. Now I love Asteroids knock offs; done well they are all about speed and momentum. At first Ion Assault seems slow and confusing. Rapid fire is completely useless, and if you want to deal any damage in this game you will need to charge your shots."
