I have this game and would highly recommend it to fans of vertical shooters.

I think the game is good but it could use some accelerometer controls. It seems as if when I use the touch controls, it lags behind (not always but it's there). Just had a tough loss against a boss battle...

t's tempting, but I really wish I had a lite version before even purchasing the game at .99

Some things the developer could work on:

Easier boss battles, way too long to kill bosses
Fix speech typos: u instead of you, etc.
Fix lag when firing laser a ton
Make guns upgrade more
Different types of weapons
Reduce difficulty overall: I play on easy and it's ridiculous for someone who grew up with Tyrian to be getting owned by this.

I might have to get this. I love 2d shooters.

Just wanted to point out on the app store page it says in the new update:

*Introduce a bland new control method

Obviously it's meant to say 'brand new' but still made me chuckle because it still makes sense .

Even after the last update which supposedly switched to a 1 to 1, 'fast as you can move your finger' control method, I find the controls are still a bit laggy.

Bosses take way too long to kill in this game.

Can you add another control type:

if you've tried rRootage it has some of the best touch controls of a shooter on iphone. What I like about it is you can put your finger anywhere on screen and control your ship without covering your ship with your finger, instead of your ship going straight to where you touch on the screen. Not sure if I described that properly but you can try rrootage for yourself, great game especially for free.
