First impressions: From the period-perfect text and formatting imperfections to the dead-on attract mode to the challenge and addictive factors, the classic arcade sound effects and familiar but impressively enhanced gameplay, this is a textbook example of how to do a modern version of a classic '80s arcade game. An absolute must-buy for classic shooter fans!

Excellent game. Does anyone know how how to get into casual mode? I did it by accident and can't figure out how. Also, how do you pause? I just randomly tap until it happens

Is there any optional iPhone controls? This will be great with the iCade, but on the phone the control seems off somehow, with the ship being so slow to react and your finger obscuring the ship. Can't see any option screen or mode select.

There a menu when you pause with a difficulty toggle but I'm not sure how you pause exactly. You can access casual mode somehow from the main screen. You can access the two retro modes by turn got landscape (one each direction).
