There's no relative touch option - the ship snaps to where you place your finger, and is completely hidden under it...

**if I'm wrong, please correct me, but I can't find an options menu

How does this compare in gameplay to Sky Force? How's the feel of the game so far?

This game is crap. Total and utter crap.
No relative touch controls and your helicopter only seems to to fire when aiming directly at an enemy, not like literally every other shmup I have played where your craft fires continuously.

How does it compare to Skyforce? It doesnt't. Skyforce was an ok shmup, this is nearly unplayable.

I'll stick with the CAVE games, those are still the best shmups on iOS, uncontested.
