"This is old school video gaming at it's best! Simple to learn, difficult to master. It takes strategy and some fast moving fingers, especially on the "hard" setting. Sometimes it's nice to be able to distract yourself for a few minutes with a good, simple video game - this one delivers." -----Bruski

Simple, no-frills arena shooter. Graphics and enemy AI are nearly identical to Geometry Wars. No IAP. 3 difficulty levels. Game Center.

The only problem is the awkward controls. This is not a dual stick shooter. One finger must be positioned over your ship, dragging it around. The other needs to touch the screen in the direction you desire to shoot, locking in that direction until you touch again (not a joystick). This makes your fingers constantly get in the way.

A pretty nice "twin-stick" type shooter but it doesn't control like one. Instead of using sticks you tap and hold on the ship with one finger and move it around the playfield, and tap anywhere other than the ship to fire in that direction.
It's very similar to most every TSS you've played except for the control scheme which I have some trouble using due to the fact that I always have a problem with one or more fingers that will slowly droop down and contact the playfield. A move that in this game sets of the big bomb.
There are also multiple power-ups that add various abilities such as extra guns, bouncing shots, and the like.
Good music and everything else on this one, I just have a problem with setting off the bomb before I'd like to. That and fingers constantly blocking the screen are my biggest complaints.

Oh and it looks like psj3809 is in serious need of a patience pill. I can't speak for the folks that didn't say thanks though.
