This looks promising but I can't get the video to show. It just plays a black screen... will download when I'm back on wifi and post imps.

Relative touch would be nice, also gc tab does nothing for me

As I love this genre, it would normally be an Instabuy for me, but reading above that there's no relative touch, makes me hesitate.

I've bought quite a few Shmups where relative touch was never implemented, so I'll wait and see.

Relative touch is IMPERATIVE in Shmups on touchscreen.

So the combat, fighting and weapons feel very unresponsive and the animations are lackluster. The game stutters here and there and overall feels like it's running at sub 30 fps most of the time. With no settings to fine tune to see if it makes this game run better on my iPad Air 2 with latest live so I had to delete it. With skyforce out, I don't see any reason to play this game in its current state.
