App description: The co-op classic PongVaders returns, now also available on the iPhone and iPod Touch!

"Its damn fun I spent far more time testing it than I needed to." - TechCrunch (http://tcrn.ch/d8NXZO)

"[The] levels are challenging and its going to take you a while to get through them, so definite value for [the] money." - AppVader (http://ht.ly/2unhu)

PONGVADERS: two great arcade tastes that taste great together.

* Pixels by Anna Anthropy (http://auntiepixelante.com)

Warning: asking strangers to play this game may create new friends.

The alien forces have arrived, but why are they dancing? What are they shooting at you? What is that streak of mustard doing on your iPad? Get your friend to finish that hot-dog and prepare to defend humanity from over 30 waves of invaders who appear surprisingly coordinated to the music.

You are each armed with a reflective paddle to defend your planet. Rebound enemy shots back to destroy the aliens. Yet take care if one planet is destroyed, both will fly out of orbit and into oblivion. Volley shots between your paddles for a super-charged attack. Collect a variety of powerups, but first talk to your friend: your boost could cause their bust. You can even tilt the iPad to shift the pull of gravity! After you've beaten the game, try to unravel the scoring system and compete to top the leaderboards. But try not to feel too bad for those cute prancing aliens during your ball-bouncing rampage.

Cool game but I can't get achievements or leaderboards to work in either Openfeint or Game Center...

Can you also play one player ? Eg the controls move both paddles at the same time ?

Without sounding like billy no mates i havent got anyone to play 2 player with, would prefer it if i could do one player.

Is this possible ? (Eg you control both paddles at the same time)

You can play one player. You control one paddle and the computer controls the other. If you want I suppose you could control both paddles yourself as well. One paddle for each thumb. Either way the game is definately a single player game as well as a co-op game. Hopefully they fix the Game Center/Openfeint problem though, unless I'm the only one it's not working for...

Achievements are now unlocking for both Game Center and Openfeint. So must have been a connection problem on my end.
