It looks like the core gameplay is similar to Steambirds, which is A-ok in my book.

Looks real cool. Need some detailed review.

Great game....just like steam birds (turn based dogfighting by dragging ships and using special abilities)

Campaign mode seems to be a series of battles (no story at all....doesn't bother me but may bother some) ... skirmish mode you unlock more ships by winning battles etc.

Only three niggles for me...
1. There doesn't appear to be a replay of the last turn (and a lot can happen at once so it's good to replay and find out what happened)
2. There doesn't appear to be any way of finding out what a skill does (no text description) until you use it
3. Keeps crashing on my iPad Pro 12.9 4G 128gb running latest IOS
