App description: In the far future, armadas from surrounding systems have suddenly waged war on Earth, destroying crucial installations and major cities - Earth is quickly brought to its knees. You are a pilot from the Ares Squadron, flying the fastest, most dangerous crafts ever made. You pilot the TV-202, a fighter few can handle. Given that the previous model, the TV-101, has chalked up more dead pilots than any experimental craft in history, many consider you lucky to be alive. You're outgunned, outmanned, and strapped into a flying coffin.

I looked it up, and this actually looks pretty sweet based on the '95 version here:

Those graphics make me want to cry. They're so beautiful.

Must be nostalgia kicking in.

I used to love this game, but I can't imagine it holding up all that well.

What a port. It feels like such a 1995 game. Even the menus haven't been changed. I love it. It's funny they didn't remove the references to key boards and old school joysticks. Definitely has a tie fighter feel.

The mfi controls definitely makes this a really good buy. I forgot how pixelated mid 90 computer games were. Some of the enemy's are hard to see because of this.

Works great on iPad Air and iphone 6+. Really benefits from using an mfi controller, it's definitely the way to go. Ahhh the nostalgia
