I was very interested in it after I saw the vid. But I don't really like the controls and the turning/tilty thing doesn't work for me.

Thanks for the video. Are the controls not responsive? Personally I don't like that they take up a third of the screen.

The video was great, this game has great sound effects and visuals at .99 worth a try, downloading now.

it was a bit cramped. the ship actually turns in the direction you are moving, which is a little unusual. I haven't put much time into it yet, but not loving it.

That was my thought too. It just looks cramped, and they could've taken advantage of either touch controls or tilt.

Back to rRootage then I guess. It still remains IMHO the best shmup in the app store.

The lack of sound is the main thing preventing it from being close to perfect. Bottom line is controls make or brake most games.

An email to the developer normally works wonders to fix minor problems; those that never respond or leave their games at a ver 1.0 just don't get my money again simple as that.
