Default Lightning Assault New iPhone/ iPad App from indie dev

I am part of a new 3-person development team (Prism Game Studios) and we just released our first game (Lightning Assault) to the App Store (Really excited about it! =D )

The app is currently $0.99

Lightning Assault is a 360 degrees 2D air combat game that allows the player to select 1 of 4 different jets (each with a unique arsenal of weapons) and complete missions around the world map by strategically combating alien aircraft (including giant alien Motherships!) Weapons can be upgraded with credits earned from in-game kills and combo-maneuvers, and there are many achievements to unlock.

Official iTunes URL: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lightning-assault/id561474052?ls=1&mt=8

We are very new to this industry and would appreciate any and all feedback on the game. Thank you!

Official Game Website: lightningassault.com
Official Studio website: prismgamestudios.com

Suggestions for the sites are also warmly welcomed!

You mean shmup?

Bought it but have to get to work now so I'll post some impressions later.

Yeah, it's a shmup. Got a little complicated on the wording.

Thanks for trying it out! Can't wait to see impressions!

Nah this is NOT a shmup. Its more of a 2D dogfighting game. I like the concept but the game needs some work. I think the interface is too cluttered. Why is there a missile icon? You fire missiles with another button and it doesn't even show the remaining missiles (which would have been helpful) so its useless.

The bullet count (for the weapon currently in use) is displayed in the upper left corner of the game screen.

Do you have any suggestions as to how we can clean up the interface?

Also, if you tap on the missile icon, you can change the secondary weapon. If you tap the missile icon and hold it down, you can open an in-game menu that shows you all the weapons (the ones you unlocked with game credits) and allows you to select from 3 unique weapons (unique to each ship)
