Nice amount of polish and I agree, it does appear strikingly similar to Blue Attack.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Well thought out

This game is well thought out and has enough difficulty to keep you going. It really seems to be a game to play for a couple hours.

A mission by mission game starting with tutorials to get you used to the tricky controls (at least for me right now.) Graphics are good and the story line keeps you ticking from one mission to the next.

Its a bit like Wing Commander but in 2D.

The 3D animation film sequences are the best I've seen on an iPhone game. The 2D anim film clips are well drawn but not animated that much, but still good to see.

I think if you liked Wing Commander and would consider a 2D version, this is it.
