I'm actually satisfied with that list you gave. Nano Fighter is technically a.. Body shooter? And cs.one is a network shooter =P

Damn this is really hard to choose just one...

I dunno, I mean not all of them are exactly the same. Some are built around high scores and traditional arcade gaming, others have certain strategy elements to them. Some try to be as realistic as possible. My favorites have to be (in no particular order):

Light Wars
Galaxy on Fire
Isotope
Circuit Strike.one

But it's hard to choose the "best" one, since the topic is so subjective. Gotta hand it to you, though, the poll's pretty comprehensive.

LOL wow we think alike

For me it's either

Nano Fighter
Blue Attack
Isotope
Circuit Strike.one
Light Wars
Dropship

I'm not even going to vote x.x
My brain power goes solely to Galactic Gunner contest clues =P

I was just trying to figure it out the best shooter to grab....

When I went to iTunes, the last section on the Games section is Best Space Shooter.....I am just trying to get the real selection based on gamers....

Personally, I like shooter games that makes me keep playing and trying to stay alive for more and more....kind of iDracula type of survival....

As far as I know, Light Wars and Isotope could be my choice. But suddenly I got second feeling about cs.one....

Anyway, I know that is a broad list and they are not perfectly comparable....lets just try.....

LOL I didn't even see that at the bottom =P

That's a great list for once from Apple =D

A good survival shooter, that makes you want more and more? Go with Nano Fighter then. It has the best controls, an update is along the way with a new fresh background, and spread fire mode as well =D

light wars or isotope is the best route to take. cs.one is good but it isnt the enemies that typically beat you, it is you messing up on the controls but this can be cuz im not the greatest but that is my experience.

i absolutely love geometry wars so light wars and isotope do seem the best for me
you cant go wrong with either

edit: i voted for light wars

Belowscape and Blue Attack have great replay value, two of my favorites.

I have all the other games, its just taking forever to get caught up playing the games I have then deleting them to make ICON room, at this rate I never will.
I'm still unhappy with apple not addressing this in 3.0, sure they give you more icons but no folders or a better way to manage games and save data.

Yeah they talk about a ton of stuff, but don't even mention there'll be TWO MORE pages of space? That's a huge part of the update.
