Game Impressions

Bought and played for awhile. Like everything but the controls aren't responsive enough. Maybe I need to use the enhancement for ship speed.

Tried adjusting right stick sensitivity in options?

The default ship speed is quite slow, but gets a HUGE boost after picking that upgrade so, ramming into enemies is now a possibility!

Well, I've tried everything to get this game to work but it never gets past the title screen. I tried restarting my iPod, deleting the app and reloading it etc...

This usually never happens.. First time a game has never worked...

I'm playing on ipod touch 4th gen iOS 4.3 have room and everything, I was reAlly looking forward to playing this...just wondering how do I go about figuring out how to get it to work?

Try fiddling w/ the options until you find something you'd like.

Controls are one of the big reasons I dig Radiangames stuff.
I have not played any other title that controls as silky smooth as their stuff.

'Not responsive' would be the absolute last thing I'd expect to ever hear in relation to their games.

Anything from Radiangames is an instant purchase for me. It doesn't disappoint either. Looks beautiful and plays really smoothly too.

Speaking of controls, does this give the option to swap "sticks", i.e. aim on left, move on right? As a left-hander I'm kind of hardwired to want to do that.

Yes they are swappable; and both sticks and the Ballistic button can all be repositioned; and both sticks have independent sensitivity settings.

So is this really that GG, top notch worthy? Reason I ask is, I am fairly naive to a lot of these games, even infinity field. I had no idea what it was, till I saw people post it multiple times. And figured to bite that. Which is pretty great so far. [I also love beat hazard ultra]. Having bought a lot of games, you tend to get more and more wary on what you spend your money on. And I can see why people limit themselves every month, it starts to really add up. It almost feels like when you feel guilty after eating sweets lol! For those who have been playing it for a while now, do you feel it gets boring seeing similar circles over and over? And one other thing I haven't seen much of is, how are the variations in weaponry? Thanks for your input guys
