Count me interested. Is there a demo available? Also, does it support gamepads?

Gonna give it a play in just a bit after a long day.

Will report back with some impressions.

edit: on load, you can choose controls (keyboard, mouse, or joystick), resolution/fullscreen options. more in a bit.

Played through a couple of the missions.

First impressions:

Really solid, well done port of a classic SHMUP.

Certainly seems like it'll provide some challenge to keep it fun and worth playing.

I don't regret the purchase at all, but I am a huge fan of SHMUPS.

Edit: Played it with keyboard controls, by the way. Need to get around to the others...
