Phew this has saved my day. I'll be getting this one instantly later

Roll on midnight !! (I presume it has relative touch controls !)

Note for people - 25% off launch sale!!! Lets not moan about the price (Like Adventures of Pip !) when it goes up in price after the launch

Looks spectacular, I'll wait for some impressions before taking the dive.

(Respectfully)
You lucky bastard! I've still got 7 hours to go.

I give a little cold flyfart to MFI support and rather would like to read as well "Top-notch relative touch controls with sensitivity slider" in the description.
Judging from some videos, we won't be disappointed **thinks positive only**

Happened upon this through a couple TA Tweeters. Looks awesome. Definite purchase for me when it's released.

Haha, yeah...it's insane to think that I've been going through the same motions every week for the last 5 years and the wait never seems to get easier.

This one has my attention but lately it seems when I play this style of game I don't like it like I did back in the day. Maybe it's just the couple I tried sucked but this one looks rad. Can someone suggest some good Japan shoot em ups like this one?

Most of the cave shoot em ups are brilliant and similar to this. Eg dodonpachi
