Kind of looks like Meteor Blitz but that a really tough one to live up to. Will wait for gameplay vid or impressions as well.

Maybe its unfair to compare it to Meteor Blitz though .... That makes expectations really really high. Meteor Blitz is one of my favorite game on my iPad and the controls are probably the best.

Developer

Hey guys!

I'm one of the developers of the game. I'd love to know your impressions. Some of the features we're considering adding:
  1. Multiplayer on the same iPad with a huge "Dreadnaught" ship
  2. Multiplayer with Gamekit
  3. iPhone support
  4. Additional ships (two more coming next week)
  5. Additional "levels"

Also, we've sent a bunch of promo codes to TouchArcade. I'm sure they'll give them out if/when they post a review.

You can reach me at adam.m@selectstartstudios.com with comments and I'll follow the thread.

Its on that page only. But its vimeo so might not load on iPhone/iPad. Even in the mac browser it took almost a minute before the video popped up. So if you are using a PC, just give a little time to load up vimeo.
