I'd like to try this but without a video I will wait.

Looking forward to seeing impressions of this. Kinda reminds me of Star Rangers from the screenies.

I seem to buy all the space shooters, duds and hits alike, I'm just happy to see them again. If you're old enough to remember Wing Commander and X-Wing, you probably have five bucks to blow on chasing their memories, right? Getting it now and will come back when I have an opinion.

Game Impressions

Wow, it's awkward. The story is a wall-o-text (which I skipped) and the game action locks you into the horizontal plane, like a tank game. The controls are jittery, but the graphics are very pretty.

Hey Guys,

Thanks giving the game a go. Rixx, a video will be coming soon. JindoFox, thanks for the feedback.

We did user acceptance testing and beta testing before the game hit the iTunes store, but any user feedback helps greatly for the next update. For the "jitteriness" try checking the sensitivity settings under "Calibrate Controls" on the Game Tab on the Main Menu and make sure they are set to zero.
