This is a copy of SSI:Zero which i had on my iTouch before. :/

Edit: The weird part is that this is the same game, same seller, but different name. :/ If it has retina graphics, thats pretty messed up asking me to pay 1.99 more for it. :/

SSI:Zero was the beta/demo... it says in the lite version description that it's "...a relaunch version of the previous SSI:Zero. For those who had downloaded SSI:Zero, you will find new things in Space Ship Ion Lite.
- All weapons and equipments in weapon shop are enabled for upgrade now!
- Touch control has been improved.
- A new "Game Guide" section is available now.
- Watch Space Ship Ion new game trailer."


In the SSI:Zero description, it clearly said that it was a demo of the upcoming FULL VERSION Space Ship Ion.

Damn!
The game looks great but with no retina support I am not getting it. Hopefully devs add it later.

Thanks, syntheticvoid.

lol

I think there's only 2 shmups in the AppStore that are retina enabled... Never thought of that as a deal breaker for fans of the genre...

lol yeah, when I hear hardcore shmuppers looking for monitors that run 320x240, I never thought resolution would be a dealbreaker for a shmup. though I do have to say the graphics in this game are clearly meant to be viewed in high resolution. so it's a tossup.

I bought it, but I just can't get used to the huge hitbox and tiny bullets.
