Max sensitivity does work much better but I can't wait for some buttons. I'm liking this a lot, unlocking and upgrading parts pretty quickly. I hope we can get some additional ships and components before long

We submitted an update that includes button controls, as well as a Scanner system for missiles that automatically targets enemies directly in front of the Jet. Allows to play on the iPad (and iPhone/iPod Touch) quite comfortably and without blocking the screen with your hands.

Also added checkpoints on Normal difficulty when you reach the boss.

Update out with new helicopter which allows full movement, and 3 new weapons. One of the new weapons is a flame thrower, and the other is a rocket launcher that homes in on targets after launching (no need to target).

Also made changes to shields which allows it to take multiple hits and recharge over time. Finally, the hangar upgrade and weapon prices have been reduced so you can enjoy them faster.

See attached pics.

Really enjoying this game now, wasnt keen on the original ship (could only go vertically), the helicopter i'm loving. Relative touch, press the right hand side of the screen to shoot, its turning into a classic horizontal shooter now.

Looking forward to playing a few levels

I'm really enjoying the game. The flamethrower is probably my favorite weapon. I thought my scores were really good until I looked at the leader board. At least I'm in the top 5% though = /.
