Controls are competent enough - I have trouble with the touch screen a little as my thumb obscures the play area, and I tend to run out of touch area if I'm not paying attention. That said, all the control methods more or less work as advertised. The tilt has touch as well, but the actual tilting part feels slow.

Works like a charm, very crisp and responsive.
I think the controls are great, however stick to the touch mode.
It's very configurable and does the job.

I am not a big fan of the autofire, but it will help beginners.

Very happy with the game globally !

And I just love the main menu music !!

And it's challenging as always - other shmups look like kids toys compared to that. It looks, sounds and plays great! The relative touch controls are pretty perfect.

GET this game NOW.
Way better than for example assault squadron.
And somehow, it feels like a perfect game for this device.

Back playing trying to reach the end of level 1

Yes but R-Type is one of them that I would like to play it's a good game. I will get the Cave game tomorrow too Espgaluda 2 plays real good on iPad x2 so both are instant buys for me.
