I'm always up for a good shooter. Any details on whether this is "on rails"?

Who cares about the controls..

It says hundreds of star systems and complex trading?

Elite for the iPhone?????? This sounds like much more than a simple space shooter, I think its the game I've been waiting for! Even the PSP does not have a space exploration game yet.

I mean...seriously?

Wouldn't it make more sense to use the accelerometer to control flight?
By the way it does say accelerometer controlled as well.

Default This is good news!

I have been waiting for this game to come too the idevice for ages. It's been out on some mobile phones for a while if i'm not mistaken, but not with this good graphics! Top rating in a review a couple of months ago.

Finally a space simulator with some substance. Hope they really nail the controls. We won't look back...
