I have to say I'm pretty blown away. The speed, the smoothness of the framerate and the beautiful graphics. You control the spaceship by using you thumb only and it works surprisingly good and responsive, when I died it always felt like it was my own fault. Pro tip: change the view to cockpit view in option menu, makes it a lot easier to beat the levels.

Wow! Just wow!

You want this game! It's well worth it's asking price! I absolutely love the control scheme. The level lay outs are phenomenal. I prefer to play in landscape. It's a beautiful game and you just get that feeling of one more time!

Absolutely amazing dev! Thank you! Get this people!

Is this more or less an endless runner? Kind of like Race The Sun in space?

The game is amazing. The developer is awesome too, it really deserves to be featured by Apple and TA. Like touchy85 said, the graphics/smoothness/gameplay are top notch. I've already 100% the achievements but I cannot stop playing.

I got some high scores already so I'm excited to see how quickly I get beaten by the rest of you all! Ha

It's both. There are levels you can beat and after that you unlock the endless mode of that level.

*sigh*

TA is so slow and unreliable today, wrote up a super long post and *poof* nothing, text lost... so here I go again!
________

Do you wanna feel like Han Solo evading some crazy space junk? Wanna feel like the most bad ass pilot ever? Then look no further and BUYS THIS GAME!

Easiest 5 Star ever.

Beta tested it for months, completed almost all the levels and I can say: It's an absolut blast to play!


Content:

- Single Player only
- Level based stages that get progressively more difficult and can be replayed on higher speed and on endless mode for scores.
- Achievements
- Unlock new Ships by completing tasks and getting good scores
- Play any level you want with any speed you like in endless mode


Controls:

Insanity! The very best controls on iOS for such a type of game. I played hours of it and I am still amazed by how good they are! Spot on and if you crash it is always your fault. The controls allow for very fine movement and steering, even through some tiny holes... and you feel awesome if you made it! Never ever had an issue with the controls after hours and I praise them highly... so what's more to say?


Graphics:

A tiny bit basic but that's alright! Tiny developers and such. They fit the style very well and you get a butter smooth experience as well, no lag, stuttering in the slightest, and that is really needed for such a game. They are also not bad in any way IMO.


Conclusion:

This game delivers the very best and bad-ass flying experience ever. You get a sense of accomplishment after finishing a mission with no crash and if you do just touch a corner here, hey you get a shield with a longer cooldown, so it is a bit forgiving as well. It is not that hard, but also not super easy. Some levels take some time to get used to. Overall the controls are amazing and I can just urge you to buy this gem of a game, one of my Game of the Year contenders for sure and that's the very first time I wrote that statement (check my post history :P ).

BUY IT NOW ! !

Edit: almost forgot! Awesome develepoer, too. I was in touch with him couple of times (never because of actual bugs, but for improvements) and he listend to all of them and implemented them. Also very fast in answering my e-mails so I expect him to turn up here very soon. Good job dude!

Love the art style. And the name, with that retro Sega nod. Hmmm... I can't say I'm not interested.
