TheBinaryMill's comments:
Never had a chance to try Assault Squadron for yourself? Well here's your chance! We've added relative control options as well as several other community requested features over the month's since Assault Squadron was released, all of which can be experienced in this LITE version, for free of course.

Oh, and a little tip tip for any TAers that might be planning to upgrade to the full version -- it's about to drop to $0.99 (from $2.99) in celebration of the LITE's release, so if you can hold off, you can pick yourself up a bargain real soon!

Cheers guys!
