This looks frickin' awesome! Here's a video of the PC version:

Does look pretty cool. Wish it had some extras like Game Center, iCade support or iPhone 5 optimization. Anyone comment on the controls?

The giant opaque dual D-Pads on the screenshots looks pretty ugly. Wish they had controls that didn't obscure so much.

And of course, a Universal/iPad version plus Game Center would be great.

I see maybe 13 mb of game here; what's taking up the other 100?

Well, the game is fully voiced, for one.

Yessir...I could be wrong, but I think there's voicework and a cutscene between each of the game's 26 levels.

As for the game itself...controls perfectly fine, ton of attitude, great retina enabled pixel graphics, no IAPs. Don't have time to get into it right now, but I'm really looking forward to picking up some firearms and kicking some ass.

Oh, and of course my main concern was the size of the D-pads, but absolutely nothing is obscured.

thanks, sold... looks like an amazing week so far (true skate not even out)

as for the cut-voices/file-size (@Devs): if i had the choice, i would pick a small-size version with text only

(file-)size does matter (especially with 3-5 "keepers" every week)... the alternative is a quick play-through/removal and your games are forgotten pretty soon

Having played, I'd say it is the music that's the main culprit behind the size of the file. Good news is it's worth it. Installed size is 116 mb by the way.
