Thanks for adding this, but does anyone else find it very twitchy and hard to control? I found myself having to be so delicate with the analog stick to aim correctly. It seems like these controls need to be tuned more.

I think it's probably just down to your own taste... I'm using a Mad Catz CTRLi micro so I had to crank the sensitivity up about two notches... if you're finding it's too twitchy, I'd suggest knocking it down a couple of notches

Amazing!

I purchased the game earlier today and I just had a 3hr solid play session, playing with the Steeleseries nimbus. Definitely best purchase i've made on the apple tv so far. I really hope there are more games like this on ATV in the future!

It seems Nintendo switch is our future then and they nailed it !

Yesterday, we also added some new content to Manticore RISING, namely a Christmas level. With an "ugly sweater"-styled ship painting and jingle-bells-y auto-cannon sounds, it is of course not meant to be taken serious at all. But hey... 'tis not the time to be all grave and earnest! So we hope you enjoy this little flight through the Trim sector's winter wonderland.

Also, we published a couple of blogs dealing with various key features and aspects of Manticore RISING. Here's the links in case you're curious.
