App description: Hypership was nominated by PocketGamer as a finalist for Best Arcade / Action game of the year in 2012. Here is what else the press has to say about Hypership:

**148apps.com: 4 out of 5 Hypership Out of Control is a gem of an iOS game.

**PocketGamer.co.uk: 9 out of 10 Gold Award "A tremendous port of a great indie game, and a must-buy on iOS"

**TouchArcade.com: 4 out of 5"It's crazy fun."

**TouchGen.com: 4 out of 5 "I love everything about the presentation."

Space is a dangerous place for even the most seasoned starship pilot, full of asteroids, multicolored floating blocks, and space mines. It's even more dangerous when your accelerator is stuck to the floor and your brakes are out. Can you survive long enough to get that elusive high score or are you destined to add a new crater to the face of an unsuspecting asteroid?

It's not tilt! It plays like the Cave shooters do, you put your finger anywhere on the screen and drag it around, and the ship moves in relation to how you move your finger, so there's no need to touch or obscure your view of the ship or anything. It's basically perfect to be honest! I promise that this will be the best game that comes out today.

That trailer is from the XBLIG version, by the way. The waves have been redesigned (see the screenshots) to fit the iPhone screen.

And finally:

HYPERSHIIIIIP! I'm really excited to buy this, still another 12 hours to wait here

Any chance on seeing a video of the actual iPhone version? The one at the top of the thread is definitely not the same as the screenshots. For one, it's in landscape, but the screens are portrait. And secondly, the iPhone version seems to be zoomed in a lot more, which could seriously affect gameplay, judging by all of the multiple paths in the video.
