App description: At the height of the Great War, you command a small, aging gunboat on it's final perilous mission. Fend off swarms of Imperial aircraft and clear the water of deadly mines and icebergs. For King and Country!

Flatiron is an easy-to-pick-up, swipe-based shooter game packed with frantic action, 3D graphics, full Game Center support, and some old-timey style.

The controls are as minimal as possible: Swipe on the boat to fire it's gun in any direction. That's it! It's great for quick pickup-and-play game sessions.

Shoot down acrobatic enemy aircraft before they can attack, blow up floating obstacles before your ship crashes into them, and keep an eye out for powerup crates dropped by downed planes. Powerful gun upgrades will wreak havoc on the field of battle, but be careful - bombers, icebergs, and mines will damage your deck gun and destroy your upgrades.

How long can you survive and how many of the Kaiser's men can you take with you?

The game seems fine but the controls are terrible. You have to swipe in a direction where you think the fighters will be or are but you can only do this by swiping the ship! It puts your entire hand in the way. By the time you swipe and guess the enemy planes are already diving to attack. It's frustrating. I wouldn't recommend this game until the dev changes the control scheme. It's not fun it's frustration.

I actually like these type of games. Especially with a World War I setting. That's why I just bought it. I've emailed the developer to see if maybe they would be willing to change the controls.

Gotta agree the controls are beyond terrible... Actually they suck comparing to the visuals.
