These aliens can attach to any organizm or machinery to evolve into new forms of life. The Earth has unfortunately become their second home. The human beings must act fast to destroy the aliens before they conquer the whole world. The Earth Alliance secretly sends a fighter equipped with the ultimate and most advanced weapon, called "Super Laser", to the aliens' stronghold...

The full version will rock! I love the graphics and controls. It says in the ad when you finish thelevel that the full will be out in a few weeks. I hope the ad was created few weeks ago. so really, Epicforce, when are you submitting the full version?

Thanks everyone for the good words!

We are aiming at submitting the full version by the 3rd week of April. The team is working extremely hard to meet the target.

If everything goes OK, the full version should be available before the end of this month!

Love the gameplay, the graphics, and sounds...everything is put together for an awesome shooter experience. Using the orbiters for extra damage is definitely a fun and cool mechanic.

I just have a couple of comments regarding the text in the Help section:

-Instead of Swipe as a control method, I would suggest calling it, "Touch: The plane follows your finger on the screen.", and call it "Touch" in the 'Settings' section. With the 'Swipe' I thought we would literally be swiping our finger in a direction to get the plane to move that way.
-Instead of "Mode" you could call it "Configuration" for the 'X' and 'S' orbiter configurations.
-"Target an enemy by placing the orbiter bullseye on it, and the orbiters will then fire their lasers on it."
-"If all four orbiters are locked onto a single target, the super-laser will be fired for extra damage."

For some reason, the music does not continuously loop if you are in the main menu. It will just play once and then stop. It also stops playing when you go into the other menus.

Taking a look at the achievements:
Never Hurt: Complete Mission 1 without getting damaged (you could call this "Untouchable" if you wanted)
Never Die: Complete Mission 1 without dying
Cube Collector: Picking up all cubes dropped by enemies

Thanks Devilishly Good for the corrections/suggestions! I know we should get a native English speaker to write the text for us but I wonder if a professional technical writer will care about such a small job (just a few lines for an iPhone game)? Anyway, I'll google and see
