If it plays as good as it looks you are going to make many people very happy. Good shmups are rare on iDevice. When was it submitted?

I checked out the gameplay videos on your website and they look fantastic. I know they are vertical and that makes things a bit more difficult, but if you managed to rescale them somehow and place them in YouTube, you could actually embed them into the post and attract a lot more attention for the title.

Thanks for the tip... I'll look into doing that.

Visuals look great. Definitely bought pending some idea of the animation quality. Makes or breaks 2D games like this.

Speaking of great 2D animation, someone really should release a Metal Slug style game.

Another question:
Is it going to be touch controled or accelometer or both?
