Game Description

Listen up Cadet! This is your Captain speaking. You are the Gunner - leave the flying to me!

Galactic Gunner is a new space shooter from Ezone.com - developed by the Edis brothers Jamie and Simon from Australia. They decided to make the space game they’ve always wanted to play: no difficult flying controls, no gettting lost in space, no hits from behind, no complex instructions to wade through — just eye-popping 3D action from the get go!

In Galactic Gunner you shoot down targets by touching the screen. Your pilot is a seasoned veteran who handles the steering (and audio commentary) so you can concentrate on the fun part: destroying any targets that cross your path!

Galactic Gunner has something for all ages and skill levels, with intuitive but challenging game-play. Your skill and accuracy (not just trigger/tap-happy luck) will earn you one of 15 different medals — do you have what it takes to earn the 'SuperNova Supreme'?

And if you are looking for a great way to show off your iPhone, then look no further! The dynamic lighting, real-time 3D graphics and effects of Galactic Gunner will amaze you and blow your friends away!

Features:

- Eye-popping real-time 3D graphics
- Something for all ages and skill levels
- Cinematic camera angles and cut-scenes
- 7 challenging missions to unlock
- 15 different medals to earn
- Humorous salute to classic sci-fi movies and games
- Full dramatic soundtrack
- Over 200 lines of entertaining audio dialog
- Touch controls
- 3D menu system
- Dynamic 3D lighting and effects
- 3 game save slots
- Vibration feedback (iPhone only)

TouchArcade.com describes Galactic Gunner as: "an exciting flight through asteroid fields, battling the menacing Trepidoids, flying inside of a colossal space station, and other scenes reminiscent of classic science fiction movies."

Looking forward to this

I'll be buying this one once it hits the AppStore - reminds me of the arcade game StarBlade by Namco (spent some money playing this one in the arcades...)

Anyone know how long it is taking new apps to get approved - I imagine everyone at Apple is pretty busy with WWDC next week...

The review process typically takes about 10 days. Even with WWDC next week, I wouldn't anticipate that changing that too much.

It's about time This is an awesome game, and I hope the TA crowd (and everyone else with a reasonable mind and an iDevice) gives it lots of love. I'm glad someone finally made a first person flight shooter for people like me who aren't so good at first person flight shooters.
