Just posted my thoughts. Will PM you my iTunes name. I love everything about the game. However, I do have two considerations for future upgrades:

1. The option to personalize swipes. Swiping to the right in order to view the left is counter-intuitive and has cost me precious seconds and a lot of damage.

2. The difficulty ramps up very quickly. While I was only able to use the gun and the bombs, I wasn't able to accumulate enough money to get the other weapons because I keep getting slammed. Perhaps implementing differing levels of difficulty could be added?

Overall, despite my recommendations on what I feel needs to be improved, I still gave it a 5 star rating.

Thanks ColeDaddy! That's a good idea regarding the swipe direction, it would be easy to make it an option.

Here's a hint regarding the difficulty: since the way you manage and spend your resources is very important, sometimes the best thing to do is to start the entire campaign over. If you've spent all your money on rockets and didn't invest in mining or saved some resources for later, you'll never be able buy the heavy weapons needed in the later levels.

That being said I'll definitely keep my ears open to more feedback on difficulty. The Flash game had difficulty settings, but we wanted to avoid that route in the mobile version.

Thanks again for the feedback!

I really enjoyed this game! High production value, vector graphics, tons of upgrades, and an understandable strategy.

I found the current swipe configuration to be intuitive, by the way, although I'm sure exactly half the population would like the option to swipe the other direction.

Off to the app store to leave a review. A nice game! Congrats!

Edit: the app store won't let me leave a review. It claims I don't own it. I will try again throughout the weekend.

Weird...

Awesome!

I really like this game -- Vector Runner was fun but this has even more depth and I like buying upgrades. Plus shooting is always good. When is the iPad version coming?
