I'm enjoying the hell outta this one. =oD

There's a pc+Mac version if you want to watch some YT vids. The controls are perfect (the joystick is great, and I couldn't imagine playing with relative touch, especially in survival and the last half of the campaign, with enemies coming at you from every-which way, the speed increase pickups, ect...)

It's a fantastic game...

3 ships, 4 difficulties, 6 campaign stages and an endless survival level.

Definitely easy to recommend.

Just bought and tried. Definitely good, and i recommend it without doubt.
Only thing that misses in my opinion is iCade compatibility. With that feature included the game is perfect.
Keep up the good work guys!

Well bought this last night.

Nice little shoot em up, controls work really well, a lot of enemies to kill, you then get a large 'end of level baddie' to attack.

Onto level 2, i'll play more later. Hopefully there'll be more variety later but so far a nice polished game.

Nice pick up

Nice. Will you add iCade support?

Game Center: masvil - feel free to add me telling you are from TA.
Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.

iCade support is on the todo list, so it's coming on a future update. No ETA yet.

Game Impressions

I already have the PC version.. and this port looks really good !

Fluid 60 fps on my iPhone 5... that does it for me

Definitely worth more than the $0.99 price tag.

btw.. little service communication, the FB link doesn't seem to work.
It's a problem I had, too. It may be something related to iOS 6 and/or having the FB app installed.
I suggest removing www. from the URL.

Here is a more complex example of what I do (I use the profile ID when possible).

void OpenURL( const char *pURLStr )
    NSString *pBSString = [NSString stringWithUTF8String:pURLStr];

    [[UIApplication sharedApplication]
                               [NSURL URLWithString:pBSString]];

bool CanOpenURL( const char *pURLStr )
    NSString *pBSString = [NSString stringWithUTF8String:pURLStr];

    return YES ==
            [[UIApplication sharedApplication]
                    [NSURL URLWithString:pBSString]];

// ...
#if defined(TARGET_OS_IPHONE)
    const char *pFBCustomURL = "fb://profile/137849396274028";
    if ( IPHUT::CanOpenURL( pFBCustomURL ) )
        DUT::OpenURL( pFBCustomURL );
        DUT::OpenURL( "" );
    DUT::OpenURL( "" );

Achivements aren't working for me.

Despite this small bug, the game is really pretty and fun to play. At that price it's a no brainer.
