i think so For me the most successful and innovative top-down shooter control system to-date. Dropship and Blue Defense! come a close joint second, although Dropship is more of a top-down hybrid of sorts..... An absolute bargain...

2079 is not bad. Could use more game modes and more depth. Perhaps a two hand touch control system?

As I understand, Eric, the developer, is thinking of including just that. But give the tilt thing a chance. It really works well once you get the hang of it..

I know what you mean. Depends on the game. Platformers with tilt don't feel right (Bugdom 2) unless your rolling along like in Rolando. In fact, anything that rolls. Labyrinth was another good one. Racers work well with tilt. Snail Mail got it right. But mostly it's the top-down/side-scrolling stuff that feels most at home with tilt for me. Stuff like 2079, Blue Attack!, Space Ninja, Blue Skies and Chopper.

What do you think?
