PowerManga - 2D retro-style shmup

Hi guys,
Just wanted to let you know of another game that we just submitted for the AppStore review.
As always, your feedback is much appreciated.



Blast through the streams of meteorites, pirates and parasites in this intense retro-style vertical space shooter.



You are a member of elite space unit, named Powermanga.
Your objective is to clean up space from trash, meteorites, small parasites, runaway robots and pirate ships in order to allow safe passage through the region.
You have powerful ships at your disposal with sophisticated weapon systems.
The weapons must constantly be upgraded to match the ever increasing enemy hostility.



Features:
- 42 levels
- More than 200 sprites
- 14 powerful bosses (guardians)
- Sophisticated weapon upgrade system with hundreds of weapon/strength combinations.
- 3 different control schemes (tilt, swipe, finger-top)
- 3 difficulty settings

well... the game is a port of an older game from TLK for Windows and Linux: http://linux.tlk.fr/games/Powermanga
The original version runs at 320x240 resolution, so we had to stretch it to better fit the iPhone screen (as we did with other our ports)
The game seems pretty crisp on our iDevices...

Hmm.. sometimes screenshots don't do games justice. You should add a video later. Good luck, and hope your game succeeds!

Oh, I see it. Either my computer was being retarded, or I just missed it.

Wow! Game looks really crisp. However, I do have to say you'll have a lot of competition unless this game soars above others. I have yet to find an engaging shmup in the App Store.

wow more and more shmups coming our way! this looks good, and im excited with the 42 levels. I hope each level is long. then that would mean hours of gameplay.

The game takes ~2 hours to beat at "easy" setting and will probably take much more time to complete at max difficulty. This should match well against most of it's competition in 99c price range.
