is there any kind of score tracking? I got to wave 10 the first game I played and once the game ended I was looking for a high score table but could not find one

Also, I wish there was a screen showing what the different weapons addons do...I picked up a yellow "S" and when I put it on my gun, it got an electrical looking shield effect, but then it would no longer fire? So effectively this put me down to one working gun.

We experimented with touch control early on and found that the game was much worse. We felt the game was best played with the accelerometer.

RE: High Scores, yes we do have a high score feature but scores are only tracked once you've survived all waves (like tower defense games) in a level (these scores are tracked in the level select screen).

RE: Weapon descriptions, the idea here is to experiment with different weapons. As mentioned in instructions screen you can actually remove weapons you dropped on your ship by simply dragging them off. You can do this as many times as you want so try experimenting with different weapon combinations.

How often are gun powerups supposed to fall...in my 10 round game, I only saw two.

Actually, I'm wrong (still need my morning coffee) there are 10 waves per level. Level one only has two unique weapon drops (one of which is a shield that regens your ships health at the cost of the inability to fire - again simply drag the shield off your ship to start firing again). Level 2 features 3 unique weapons, and new levels I add into the game will feature new weapons and new ships to kill!

In fact, I'm about ready to send an update to Apple today!
