Meteor Blitz is an old game that hasn't been updates since 2013 (which probably means it will soon get deleted by Apple), but it's still one of my favorite twin-stick shooters.

Dude, I'd never heard of Meteor Blitz. That game is sick. I can't believe how responsive the controls are. 3 1/2 years since an update and this is probably the smoothest most responsive iOS game I think I've ever played. Thanks for putting this up, squarezero. You da man!

And if anyone wants to check it out there is a free version to try before you buy the full version.

Good ones that hevnt been mentioned yet...

Bastion
Implosion (should count, even though there is hack and slash for the most part. Else just ignore)

How i wish these were still available...
Lara Croft Guardian of Light
Solomon's Keep
Solomon's Boneyard
Zombies. (By Bignic)
...and there was one i really liked that had a futuristic theme gathering heroes of the past and turning them into killing machines (e.g. Lincoln with a machien gun, but i really dont remember much anymore)
...and another one which had 4-player coop i played woth jcho and connector back then, but then had bugs that i dont think were ever fixed. There is hope the devs would revive it though, last news was that they got the license back from their old publisher.

Any of the twin-stick shooters by radiangames are worth your while.

No longer available, but still works just fine is Infinity Field.

Isotope A Space Shooter continues to work and is excellent.

Radiangames - Inferno + and Inferno 2 are my favirites.

Space Miner by Venan Entertainment is sort of a twin stick, RPG, very funny, good entertainment.

No love for either of the 9th Dawn games? Twin-stick dungeon crawlers - there aren't enough of them! I haven't really got stuck in to 9th Dawn II yet, but I really like its style.

I believe the first Heroes of Loot is also a twin-stick dungeon crawler. The sequel had auto aim, so it doesn't qualify, but it was very good.

2017 GOTY nominations: SAO: Memory Defrag, Death Road to Canada, Spaceplan, Arkanoid vs Space Invaders, Oxenfree

Nope... The first game was also single button shooting with auto aim.
