But id say its not worth the price, i can see it coming down in price soon.
It saves your progress every level, so if you quit at level 3, when you come back, you can start at level 3 again.

Oh, and yes, the green squares are the explosion created by killing the enemies.

Accelerometer handles movement, tilt up/dow to go up/down, and left/right to go left/right.
When you tilt left/right, the ship turns to that direction.
Tap the screen to shoot.

Wait, so...

He's got the Defender theme going, with Space Invaders aliens and the Viper from the original Battlestar Galactica...

I dunno. Looks a bit amateurish to me. Definitely overpriced.
