This game looks very good. I played just a couple of minutes but so far impressions are positive. It's a twin stick shooter that resembles meteor blitz. Controls are precise and smooth. I'll post some more as I get more play time with it.

Thanks for update. Both movies were taken from Hardcore game mode - to unlock it, you have to finish all levels in Arcade Mode.

So far I like it. It's not better than Meteor Blitz, but then again, that's very difficult thing to accomplish. The rotating planet is a gimmick, but a very cool one; there's plenty of action on the screen, it plays smooth on a 3Gs (though not quite as fluid as MB), and it's definitely challenging without being ridiculously hard. Definitely worth the money for me.

It's a dual-stick shooter that looks a lot like Super Stardust HD, has Anaglyphic 3D functionality, and is on sale for $1.99?

Count me in

iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touch 3rd gen. default settings were balanced to get stable 30fps - Ultra details. To get better framerate use High (45fps) or Medium (60fps) details.
