Ios 8 only, so i can't tell you how good the controls are, though no relative touch are needed here. Found a little video:

Ahhh ios 8 only so i cant play this anyway

I do like retro games but i'm not sure how long this will stay on the app store as the official Raiden Legacy game is out on iOS, surprised they used the Raiden name with this one which could cause issues

Why would you handicap your potential profit by requiring the latest OS? No reason this game must use ios8...

After play testing my 18 remaining games with ios 8 on my old iphone, i updated my 5s to the latest version, as well. Though i played them only for less than five minutes each (hope that was no mistake), they all worked fine.

This is another of my wish-listed little games which i finally could buy now.
I'm a sucker for one-hander, and this might be one of my all-time's favorite. Might be biased a bit because it's a shmup, my most beloved genre.

Sanukus' video (great work as usual, thanks) doesn't show two things.
The colors are even brighter and more beautiful in real, and sliding your thumb all the way to the left/right makes you feel moving horizontally, while the screen actually is turning only. You always stay in the same spot with enough place for your thumb to control your ship from behind. This needs a few moments to get used to, how to dodge the bullets or aim the foes without moving your ship, but for my taste, they simply nailed these controls.
Did you watch the video and saw the touch/tilt controls on the ready screen? No option needed to switch between touch or tilt, they work as default together without hindering eachother, absolutely brilliant made.

As Snooptalian says it above, no favor beeing ios 8 only, pity.

Update is out, playable with ios 7. Great but late move ?

This game didn't strike me that much as Space Strafer just recently did, but i really do like it and recommend it from my heart to people with a faible for special games, specially shooter fans.

Keep in mind, what matters is the gameplay and not that menu screen, which lets me still shaking my head.

Edit: oh my...just realized my post count...gotta pm a mod fast.
