3rd gen and up hopefully it's only a mistake in the submission.

This game shouldn't require 3rd gen

I was looking forward to this but I have mixed feelings about it after playing it. I love the retro look but the menus are convoluted and confusing.

Woo, finally out!

Yeah, it does require 3rd gen+, no mistake.. because of the use of pixel shaders.

From the Llamasoft forum:

Well we're using OGLES 2.0 for the Neon core so I guess that means we'll be for 3GS+ I'm afraid. Neon uses shaders so that's how it's got to be.

I'll pick this up for a buck, but will be surprised if I like it. Have pretty much been left scratching my head at every other thing this guy has ever put out.

How is the actual gameplay? Fun? Good controls?
