iFighter was published long time ago with our old IDP account and it's time to move it to our proper IDP account with our other titles. We can't move the game straight into the new IDP account so we have to publish again with the new name iFighter 1945.

It's FREE now and we hope the old customers of iFighter can download it again so that they can get the updates later for free. If you or your friends have bought iFighter before, please download it again and spread the word for us. Thank you!

A new update is coming very soon, with more levels, different fighters and Plus+ support!

Thanks for the update. Very cool that you're doing this for free! I bought this ages ago when it first came out, and I've been loving it ever since. I think it's among the best shmups on the iPhone and I'm really looking forward to the new update! Can you tease us with any details?

Oy! What are you playing at!

In fact this current version iFighter 1945, has a new relative control mode which is not in the original iFighter and also supporting the new iOS4 task-switching.

Thank you very much, epicforce!

iFighter was my first iPhone shmup and will always have a place in my heart.

Thanks again for the upcoming free update. Love your work.

Picked this up on a whim a little while ago, didn't expect it to hold my interest for long, but has it ever! A really nice shmup. (Though pity it'll be getting Plus.) Everyone should pick this up while it's free, and definitely worth a buck or two as well.

Agreeing with the honorable Gabrien and sammysin. Absolutely fantastic game.

Pick this up while it's free, and if you miss it, buy it! A game that definitely needs more attention.

Thanks a lot everyone! We're really thrilled to see so many people still remember iFighter after such a long time since its first release.

We're also very excited to see Stone Wars on the front page of TouchArcade. Thanks guys! Very much appreciated.
