Wow. That was fast. I remember just reading about this! Something about using multiple fingers for additional ships? Gotta check this out - definitely downloading now. Thanks for the heads up PeteOzzy!

It plays pretty amazingly too! Just turn off the multi-finger gestures to get the most from it. Five fingers at once in a bullet hell is pretty wonderful!

Oh and it's a $0.99 unlock for the main game I believe. The trial is short but it's unique and definitely impressed me enough

Edit: Thank you ScotDamn for the price correction.

It's a $.99 unlock. I'm really digging it so far, but just as I suspected, it takes a bit getting used to holding the device when adding 4 or 5 fingers. Definitely a better experience on an iPad I would think but still fun so far on iPhone. I agree the trial is pretty short, but it was enough to sell me as well.

I hadn't thought of that, I imagine it does have a large effect on the ease of control. Kudos to them for still going ahead with an iPhone version, many devs would have not tried. Cheers for the price correction!

No problem man! I think $.99 is pretty darn reasonable!

I agree - I wish more developer would at least try and offer their "iPad Only" games to iPhone users with a disclaimer or something. So many great iPad only games I missing out on!

So just checking, the "free" game is a short trial? I haven't gotten to playing it yet. Just wondering what unlocking gets you.
