That would also be my question Gabrien - but then again 3.99 for a nicely staggered universal release and early-adopters price means I will buy this anyway. Nice Fishlabs! Other Dev's would do well to follow a similar universal scheme.

Only 10 hours of gameplay? Why not implant more mission and add possible challenge mission or dog fight or high score play or even multiplayer?

if you were to count randomly generated missions as well, there would potentially be infinite hours of gameplay.

Can't wait to get this! I played the version for java mobile phones and that itself was epic. I just hope the controls are refined since that'll make or break the game. Worms and now this? iDevice gaming seems to be picking up pace in these past few weeks.

Awesome, loved the first one even though I never got around to finishing it (lost my save twice so gave up) but this looks 10 times nicer just from the trailer alone.
