This game is so good it is downright scary. Turn off that thrust button and turn on auto fire. Put on your headphones and try playing with one thumb on the screen. It takes time to appreciate all the little details and subtleties of sound.

Fantastic.

I know! I love the sounds the enemy robot ships make when you blow them up.

I hav played a lot of both and I definately agree about turning the thrust button off. I don't play with auto fire though because I pick and choose which rocks I shoot when I first go to a sector (expensive ones on first trip). And yeah this game is scary good. I never thought a shooter could just blow meteor blitz out of the water. The level of detail is just amazing.

And the sound is great. The enemy robots almost sound like the daleks from dr who, awesome.

currently switching back & forth between: Infinity Blade, Kosmo Spin, Wispin, Sentinel 3, Pix'n Love Rush, Word Warrior, WordFu, Solipskier, Fruit Ninja, and some others..

Please, please, please tell us that you plan to expand this game - more areas to discover, more story-lines, or even online multiplayer...???

I haven't had this much fun with a game for such a long time, and can think of only one word to describe it...

...awesome...
