Tyrian coming to Iphone

Hi guys,

We are working on porting Tyrian to Iphone.
Below is the video of our current dev version.
There are some rendering issues and no controls yet, so the game is coded to go right in to demo mode after 1 second pause...

Damn right. I was disappointed when the Gameboy Advance port was canceled, but now my dream of a pocket Tyrian still lives!

Excellent game! I had this on the PC, the GP2X, and currently still playing it on my PSP!
Looking forward for the iPhone version, I hope the controls are more rRootage and less SpaceX

Couple new thoughts came to mind:

Will episodes 4 and 5 be included?
Control system?
Vertical screen option? Or horizontal screen flip for right handed ppl?
Cheat codes w/o keyboard? (I'm thinking about the Super Arcade Modes here)
Wifi/Local/Online Co-op?

And of course..
Destruct?

I'LL LOVE YOU SO MUCH IF YOU DONT SCREW UP THIS GAME, used to be my favourite PC game for years, one of the best games i've ever played

edit: Co-Op would be lovely indeed but i think i could live without it, but man... playing co-op with my brother on 2 iphones that'd like just like the old times

Yeah, basically the best vertical shooter in my opinion, rivalled only by Kenta Cho's creations, and Do/Donpachi
