It says $1.99 in the original post, but in the iTunes app store it says $2.49.

Not sure which price is right, but might want to fix that up.

There's no mention of multiplayer? Assuming it's only single player.

Might buy this and check it out.

This looks a lot like Archangel. I'd be interested in hearing how it compares. Archangel's a great game - not perfect, but pretty good.
