It is levelbased. The ship flys automaticly, you have to steer with a virtual pad. Tilt-Control isnt available - but would be a good option. One of the rare game where I wish there were tilt-controls!

At the end it is a really good game for oldschool arcade gamers and it deserves more attention! Go and buy
Hi Tobi!
Thanks for trying out the game!

We experimented with tilt controls, we've got them fully implemented, but we decided to scrap them since they really didn't worked as intended on Futuridium. The game requires total precision and very fast movements, and as hard as we tried we were not able to find the right balance to make tilt enjoyable enough.

However, we'll keep our attention on all the feedbacks after the relase, and we'll react accordingly.
