Seems to be, I don't think scam apps tend to have lite versions: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/id601510108?mt=8&affId=2049622

Yeah it's real

I got this game a while back and it's really fun. I thought I would make a thread for it so more people could know about it. It even has game center

Edit : I am NOT the developer

The description of the controls confuses me. Do you just tap and the ship flies toward where you tapped? I guess I'll try the lite. Wish it were RT though...

Basically, you hold your thumb on the screen (ship will appear in front of thumb) and you can move up/down left/right backwards

The ship always faces fowards

You tap and it moved to just to the right of where you tapped. If this had relative controls it would be great for us oldie who remember this

Controls aren't the worst (at least your finger doesn't cover the ship)
