HOW TO PLAY:
Choose one of the four ships. Each one has slightly different stats which can be upgraded in-game using points.

Start with your right thumb or index finger. Tap the screen anywhere to get the ship to turn and move towards it. The further you tap from the ship, the faster it will move. To stop the ship moving, simply tap on it.

Now to firing, see the button on the left side of the screen? Use your left thumb to press and hold on it. Firing mode is active and the ship will shoot until you release your thumb! Now you tap with your right thumb or index finger and the ship will turn to your touch! You can also drag your thumb or finger around to get the ship to turn and shoot a wave of bullets.

The ship will move faster when it is not firing so when a tricky situation arises and you require agility release the firing button to escape the deadly rocks.

How about upgrading your ship? Simple. When you see the stats screen you will also see three upgrade bars (if you have gathered enough points) simply drag the upgrade you desire to the left and the bar will disappear and your upgrade will be complete. The name and cost of the upgrade is written on the bar itself. For more information about what each upgrade does, head on over to the Tutorial pages in the options menu.

Yah I saw the dev posted this on march 05 and got zero responses. Considering it looks a lot like asteroids and their aren't really any good asteroids games (well space miner owns but it isn't as dangerous as asteroids), you'd think a lot of people would have seen it.

Jetwilson, a video would really help I think.

Two quick notices:
1) yes its true, update 1.1.0 is being worked on as we speak and should be out within the next couple of weeks
2) i would just like to apologise, a promotional video is being created and will be uploaded soon to youtube, but it will be a bit longer than I first expected, but hey, progress is looking good.
