MAJOR EDIT: OK, I'm an idiot and couldn't figure out how to set Tap to Aim / Tap to Thrust...

Still, you can't beat this game for Free, it's a good'un!

Also, it's the only game where I've seen an option to reverse tilt to turn, which is really bizarre to play...

I still like it though.

Maybe I'm dense, but I miss the turn and thrust controls - is there a way to set that? I haven't been able to figure that out since the recent update. Now it thrusts based on how far I move my thumb for direction...

Hey drelbs, nothing about the controls has changed, the update hasn't been released yet. It's probably just a setting in options. Try using the settings "Touch to Aim" and "Touch-Thrust ON". That's the default setup so one finger aims the ship and a second finger will give you thrust.

Hope that's what you were looking for. =) If not let me know and I'll try and figure out what the deal is.

I figured it out.

id10t error.

Still the best control of the single-stick fighters I've played on the iPod Touch!

Hey everyone, this free offer is very shortly going to expire. I would try to jump on it if you haven't downloaded it yet.
