No there aren't bosses right now. Main goal is to survive as long as possible while the waves of enemies become more and more quick.

You control the plane simply by tilting the device and tap anywhere on the screen do drop a Pumpkin-Bomb!

Damn.. Was interested until you said tilt. Why, oh why do devs try and make shmups with tilt controls? There's not one shmup that works well with tilt controls.

Any chance for an update to include relative touch controls? Not a big fan of tilt controls in a shmup!

I've choosed tilt control becouse of the little screen of iphone, with a finger on the screen is much more difficult to see the enemies and bullets from behind in my opinion.
Especially becouse of the enemies that spawn from the lower angles.
I think that with the option to choose the agility and size of the plane you can build a plane nice to control also with tilt control

If it is a much requested feature I can implement it. I thought, however, to put it in a future version for the iPad becouse of the bigger screen.

Wow I'm a dick... Nothing against you, just bad experience with devs all last night...

But I will say you're wrong about the small screen... And if you add touch controls, your game will sell better. That's all I'm gonna say...

Well I can see your point, but it's always good to give players options on controls, I've played a ton of shmups and I can't think of one that uses tilt controls that's still on my device.

Thanks for the replies and good luck on your game!

Oh, any chance of a "lite" version? Would at least give it a try then.
