Well I've just played through with your first set of energy and I got to play 8 battles now I've got to wait 15 mins for it to recharge.
The graphics and gameplay are very nice and I can see the ship upgrading being addictive. Can't complain about anything so far as it all looks great.
I'll be keeping this around for a while as it seems like its a good pick up and play loot/upgrade game.

Just picked it up (UK App Store)and played the first few missions/tutorials. Lots of fun so far - not played for long enough to comment on IAP but it's very polished and has a cool cel-shaded visual style. Runs great on my iPad 4 too...

...so far so good! Highly recommend having a go as it's free and seems like a great little looting game with a lot of personality.

I played through the first two sectors, and while the timer is pretty annoying, I never felt the need to buy anything. The timer is rough, with only 5 energy, and energy recharging one bar every 20 minutes...I was able to earn enough of the second currency to buy a second ship and do various upgrades. There is a cool crafting system that lets you combine 3 of the same piece or turret to build a better version...all in all, I am excited for this to finally launch!
