Zero Chance - major update - and lite announced

Hey friends,
it's all about this game:

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=301918142&mt=8

I truelly love it for it's uniqueness and such a perfect atmosphere.
The soundtracks (or better sound scapes) is so epic and totally reminds me of classics like 2001 (the big emptiness and loneliness in space).

The only big problem, which annoyed everybody was the clipping of the objects reaching the screen. This really was ugly. But the very nice dev definetly fixed it with a fast update which arrived today:

Now the sensors around the ship have different colours. The clipping is gone (BEAUTIFUL). There are now checkpoints, which is great, because the levels are hard and long. And there is a new upgrade shop (which I couldn't check out at this time).

Now, I highly recommend this fantastic and unique game.
The atmophere is a blast for me (as a huge sci-fi fan).
And the dev also wants to bring out a "zero cost" version (lite).

You will have a sale if the lite version is fun. This game has looked interesting since the release date.

StP gave it a 2 so I'll be cautious.
Maybe the lite version can change my mind.

I totally don't understand this review.
Yes, the game is hard. And? I call it challenging.
Just because they didn't spend much time with the game....
Controls are pretty perfect. And you are challenged really
hard because you control your ship AND the view at the
same time. But this is truelly one of the unique features
wich make the game so good.

You are flying through a tunnel and adjust the view to see
the end of it. You get the feeling really to have this tunnel
i front of you, kind of a VR feeling.

Cannot recommend this game enough.
