It's simple man, just take a deep breath and visualize urself playing both games. The answer will be obvious then...

ok, i tried sci fly lite but the controls are kinda strange. for some reason, the sound turns off after halfway through the round, does this happen in the full version?

I think the controls are great, btw you can change them in the options menu.
Yes unfortunately SciFly is buggy as hell, the sound turns off at will and it crashes like every five minutes.
But despite all this its still better then BiiPlane...

Both, I just did. Thanks for tellling me about the price drop. I was reading a post about yo-yo pricing on apps, and BiiPlane is a prime example, it started at $4.99 and has dropped a dollar every few days. Yet to figure out why. I don't recommend getting BiiPlane exclusively. Its betaware. Its on like version .9, so yea, the price is great, but don't expect it to be flawless. bootant has an issue with letting paying customers beta test.

Bought Biiplane yesterday and enjoy it. Only drawback so far is that because I donīt touch the screen it dims after a minute.

Scifly has not impressed me and I am happy there was a free lite version.
