YES! Finally!!!
Downloaded it, and insta-bought the premium upgrade.

Really looking forward to getting into this; the first one is an appstore classic.

This looks amazing!! Just picked it up. I needed a break from the hours of Galaga Wars I've been putting in. I expect to see you on the leaderboard, Jared.

Edit: I like this quite a bit! I'm slightly disappointed there's no GC, but it looks like a stage based affair rather than a high score chaser. There were no ads for me, only a gentle nudge to support the team with coin packs, etc. There are checkpoints throughout the stages that will cost a heart (consumable), which is nice because the stages are semi-long.

So you can watch ads for continues, but they aren't necessary. Looks like the premium unlock has everything you need to make it premium for $5. Considering it, but got a lot more gaming to catch up on first. What a week!

If there is no Game Center, do you create a profile using their servers when you play multiplayer? Does it sync across to other devices?

For Multiplayer we dont use Game Center, mostly because we want to make it easier to let iPhone/iPad players play with Android users.

We're using 'Photon' for the online play they're very good with servers in the US, EU and Asia https://www.photonengine.com/en-US/Photon

We want the experience to be as easy for the player as possible, so... no signing up. The flow looks like this:

Click Multi > Choose Character > Choose your name (optional) > Create a new game (pick a map) OR Join a game. That's about it

I'm working on 5 new stages/bosses right now and we'll be adding some kind of iCloud save function within 2 weeks.

Hmmm... Its pretty nice, but it does feel so "unprecise". Is it the hitbox of your own ship? Or the fact that touching the environment - even slightly - costs health?

I will stick to Skyforce. Shoot em ups dont get better than that one..

These guys have made some of the very best games on iOS period!! Seriously check out their library... such a unique style with fast paced arcade action RPGness in their games.

I should have checked out sky force, we did a brief look at the best shmups on all platforms, mostly bullet hell or 1942 clones. I know most people prefer vertical shmups but I disagree and we stuck to making what we believed in.

Anyway we hope you enjoy the co-op mode, the puzzle like boss fights and the tightly designed layout of the short stages! And do tell us anything that pisses you off or any part that's too frustrating, any place that you die more than 5 times.

cheers!
