____________________________________________
I submitted Occurro! earlier this week. It's a fast-action space-based top down shooter - my beta testers are addicted! Check out the screenshots below... (I'll post a new gameplay video in a few days.)

Details:
  • Endless hordes of enemies, all with different AI: Scouts, Cruisers, Battleships, Space Stations, Mines, Meanies, Jigsaws, and Stoopers
  • Player controls & ship motion are physics based & aerospace engineer designed - like a fly-by-wire fighter
  • Particle-engine explosions
  • 3D starfield background
  • OpenAL 3D-positioned sound effects & custom music (wear earphones!)
  • Control options
    • Tilt controls: Control your ship with tilt & your weapons with touch & aim controls
    • Touch controls: dual on-screen controls for motion & weapons
  • Lasers, quad-lasers, bombs & score power ups
  • Manage your laser energy by keeping your ship motion up - our testers love this twist
  • Online leaderboards powered by Geocade
    • Daily, weekly, monthly & all-time selections
    • Local, state, country & world-wide zones
It should be in the App Store next weekend for $0.99!

Nice! I have to say from the beginning of this post it looked a little bit like YET ANOTHER wannabe top down space shooter with little new to offer but now I see you have a number of interesting tweaks to the old standard up your sleeve!

@LordGek - I've tried to do lots of inventing along the way with the concept. I've thought a lot about how to make this genre more exciting...I think you'll like it.

@nattylux - My fingers are crossed for a speedy approval. I sent it in on Tuesday & asked for a July 4th launch. It's in their hands!

I just tried it on my 3GS for the first time...smooooooth & fast! Ok, everyone go get a 3GS so I can add lots of coolness with texture shaders, etc.

So that's at least two reputable devs backing this so far, must mean something.

Maybe... this actually looks pretty good. The art is really nice and controls don't seem too bad since you have options. Good luck!
