Anyway, a new version has been submitted, let's hope Apple is in a position to help us get it approved quickly

Apple really came through last night, they reviewed and approved the new version, so it will be released on the 12th as planned! (yay!)

This game is so damn good. Are there other games with this location based leader board? It's such an awesome feature, like going to another neighborhood's arcade!

I was reading through this thread seeing everyone filled with enthusiasm and over the top high praise, salivatating over this game, then all of a sudden the thread stops dead. What happened? Did the thread continue somewhere else, did nobody like the HD version? Just curious I guess, it was just strange seeing a seemingly unstoppable freight train of a thread come to a screeching halt.

Edit: Nevermind, seems there are two threads and I found the other one.

Nope, the game is awesome and only getting better by the addition of more ships and updates.

Ipad 3 screenshot of the new ship Phantom, my last remarks to Selachii.

Yes, but the gameplay on your old game looks like fun. But your new game looks wonderful with the colors and such, here is an ipad 3 screenshot. Bought this phantom ship, how long does it take to make a new ship? How did you come up with the Phantom? Like it though, cool to have so many different ships, and I think it was my idea to put in those videos in your game, so that looks cool too!

You know what's weird. I know this is one of the best -- and in some people's eyes the best -- iOS shmups. But for some reason, I have never been able to get into it as much as others.

Don't get me wrong the gameplay and graphics are fantastic. Strangely, though, I don't like the endless nature of it. Guess I feel more of a sense of accomplishment in games with stages and a final boss to conquer. And another part is probably that I'm not a high score chaser.

I'll shut up now before I get my head bit off.

BTW, I always wondered what these devs are up to these days. Have they been working on a new game? Would love a more stage/story based shmup for them.
