I love this game, don't mind that I paid $5.99 for it at all.

Play on hard, I found it too easy otherwise.

This is one of the best arcade games on the iPhone and I want everyone to have it.

Version 3.0 has been submitted to the App Store, so it's getting cheaper AND better.

I was wondering what people's opinion of this game was...
I guess for $.99 it sounds like a great bargain. I'll pick this puppy up when I'm off work tonight. Hopefully the sale lasts the entire day and evening.
There's nothing more frustrating than seeing a sale last only a few hours.

Developer, please keep it on sale for the next 24 hours so I can purchase this tonight!

"one of the best arcade games..." - Nice self-promotion there. I'm really pleased to hear that we're getting another major update! What's in this new version?

Strafing, ability to pause in game and adjust options and accelerometer calibration, better hud, requires less memory, ability to continue levels in arcade mode.

My only complaint with the game is that it gets boring after a while, your basically doing the same thing each level with a harder difficulty. I have beat it arcade mode twice, once on the original version and once on the updated one, unless theres some drastic change in the new version i probably wont play it again because it's boring. There has to be some sort of challenges, for example in chopper you rescue people, you need something more like that. Hope that helps.

I liked the lite version and just may have to give a buck to upgrade to this version

Me too Renare, but one thing i'm wondering is how much the Cash part plays into the game.. you can buy new weapons and then go back and play the same guys as before, or is it kinda like it's inevitable for you to have to upgrade to beat the next level...

Does that make sense?

This is just a minor update. I'd like to add more interesting things like rescue missions, boss levels and some different weapons like homing missiles in the future. There are also plans to port this game to Xbox Live
