Jeff Minter's Minotron is out - it's fantastic!

I have to say this is the most fun shoot em up on the iDevices!

Everything works as it should... The controls are the best for this type of game and there are lots of game modes that cater from hardcore to casual.

Brillent game!

Thanks for the link.

Just bought this and it is awesome. I am still not a fan of how he designs his menus but the game is a blast.

I was just playing it and forgot to put the link in... I'm really impressed with the controls. They work full stop as simple as that... It just feels so natural with how it works. You can swap hands through play to move the player around. To be honest it makes all those crappy joypad restrictions null and void.

Anyway this game is an instant buy if you like these type of games.

The sfx are just plain weird but they work for the game.
