One of the better dual stick shooters I've played on the iPhone. Had no idea an iPad version was in the works. Don't really remember how the controls were setup on the phone version, but looking at the screens I hope those power-up buttons to the right can be moved? That's a deal breaker in a game as frantic as this if there's no config for the buttons.

We've wanted to do an iPad version for years really. Full time jobs, overtime and family time always got in the way.

Let us know what you think and what small improvements, for example in controls, you'd like to see.

Hope everyone enjoys the game!
