This should be getting more attention. It's a beautifully done horizontal (free) Shmup. No brainier.

The artwork is gorgeous and I'm loving exploring the areas that come when campaign mode is unlocked, I also like that there are two control options but I'm finding its a bit sluggish when I use the joystick option. I'm also getting a lot of freezing where the dude won't move left, right or jump and the only thing I can do is close down the app, I've just finished a shoot run and then got a green screen.
A lot of work has gone into this, and if it's possible to make the ship the same speed as touch controls when using the joystick and the bugs are fixed I'll be keeping this on my device for a long time.
