Ballistic SE - Radiangames (Universal)

Hi guys,

I'm the developer of Super Crossfire and Fireball SE. I wanted to announce the upcoming release of my next game, Ballistic SE. It'll be Universal and available on April 26th or May 3rd (not sure yet).

Ballistic SE is an intense twin-stick shooter. Some of the key features include:
• Infinite waves and 5 challenges stages
• 10 multi-level enhancements to customize your ship
• Ballistics mode unleashes extra firepower and slows down the action
• Enhanced graphics for iPhone 4S, iPad2, and New iPad (with Retina Display support)
• Game Center support with 20 achievements and 7 leaderboards
• Smooth virtual stick controls with seamless switching between auto-fire and manual firing
• iCloud support to ensure your progress is maintain across multiple devices

Here's a screenshot of the iPhone version:

I'll be doing a trailer when the game is launched. Here are the trailers for the 360 and PC versions:
360 Launch Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Km8eQmRel-Y
PC Gameplay Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvqLo-vGLhE

Keep in mind the game has changed a bit from those versions and will look a bit different (such as no bloom). Some of the major gameplay differences are described here:

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer them ASAP. Thanks!

Buying on launch day for sure.

RadianGames, mind giving us some more details on the quote below from your website?

With Enhancements, there are now 10 of them, the details of many of them have changed, and they all have two levels of activation. So there are potentially 20 enhancement points to spend, though you never get that many. I’ll leave the details for another time.

Any word on the release date? I think it was going to be either April 26th or May 3rd. Looking forward to the dual-stick overload.
