Recommend a good premium space shooter?

I love flying and shooting games, I don't really dig the intense space sims and I like progression ( ship customization, upgrades etc) and I don't do pay to play at all so they gotta be premium

I posted this in that other shmup thread, they're all premium. The only freemium there is pay once to unlock the entire game.

Decluster Zero
Danmaku Unlimited 2
Phoenix HD
Plasma Sky
Touch Force
Galactic Nemesis

Here are some 3D options...

ARC Squadron (there is a premium version)
Star Horizon
Ace Ferarra
Strike Wing
Futuridium EP

I'll second .Decluster -- both games. They're essentially flawless. Hard as nails though, at least on hard, which is good.

ARC Squadron all the way. It's like Star Fox for iOS.

I just downloaded inferno 2 ,I love the leveling up aspect it's almost like a shooter/ dungeon crawler mix. Don't know why it took me so long to get this one.

Inferno 2 is an awesome game! The first one was great too, but the second improved upon it in every way.
