I've only played about 30 minutes but so far I'm not a huge fan of the swipe controls. It could grow on me, I guess.

I agree. The game itself is pretty decent though. Still, alternative controls like touch and drag ala Steambirds might give it better playability.

The IAP is for credits you use to kit out your mothership and buy ships. You can still get credits playing normally but it's tough to save up if your mothership gets damaged as repairs cost money. Not required, IMHO but it can space out some cooler ships and upgrades for longer than it should.

In app DLC level packs are OK but I tend to stay away from games with in app greed, its just as easy to add a in app free cheat button.

I think I will wait for a video or a lite. The two player vs sounds good though.

Yeah, after playing some more I'm not convinced. I'm still fighting the controls. I know where I want my ship to go but I can't get it there because I don't know where a swipe is going to put my ship. The time limit just means that any planning that I've done ahead of my turn becomes useless because I only have so little time to do it. It *kind of* works for the turrets but imo it's useless for ship movement. I'll give it some more time later this week, but I really doubt that I'm going to spend more cash on IAP.
