Sold.
I second that!

Minter followed up to say that the update has been submitted. So any day now I guess... depending on review process.

Minter's Minotron also uses this system. I agree, it's a really great idea.

Honestly, I can't think of any reason not to throw another $1.99 at Minter after he put out three of the best games of the last year or so.

Absolutely this^^^ and...

But after reaching cavern 6...

The only thing I'd change is the "clank" when you bump into walls or don't land correctly. In fact it's bad enough I'm about ready to rewrite clang0.wav with a quieter version...
+1 lol me too

Nice to have an update soon. Recommended !

Agreed!
I thought the controls were good on the iPad...then I fired up the iCade and WOW...Simply amazing!
If you have an iCade, get it now! Great retro goodness
Yet another amazing Jeff Minter game! Still can't figure out why his games don't have more buzz & popularity.
They are all great! The only one I don't have (yet) is deflex. The nice thing about his games is you know what you're getting and he doesn't add any lame IAP's. Just a nice, well polished, fun game(especially on the iCade)!

This didn't grab me as much as the other Llamasoft goodies to be honest, but the more I play, the more I'm enjoying it. Anyone who's just playing the easy levels, try the others. The ships handle differently and add a lot to the game.

Yak really knows how to make a great game, just like he did all these years ago!

All I want is the option to move thrust to the top left and steer to the bottom right!

Just downloaded the update and it now has new control options. To change them you need to pause the game.

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up because I've been falling behind on keeping up with updates.
