Yes. It is.

It has some of the best art, and very creative enemy AI (patterns) as well as interesting weapon types, especially the lock-on laser.

It's also one of the more seminal games on the app store, believe it or not. I'll bet if we polled all the developers who've made an iOS shmup over the past year, almost as many would cite this game as an influence on their work as something by CAVE.

In any case, Super Laser holds up remarkably well and you'd be wrong to suggest it's not a great game to pick up, especially for free.

NONONO wait...for free it's ok...all it's ok for free, also a punch or a stab!
But I've played many shoot 'em up games and only when I was playing this one ( with touch controls, I hate tilt) I had felt a real pain to my finger! No more fun then! Deleted it...this was my only issue and for this completely subjective reason I don't like the game.
But guys feel free to download it and play it to death, maybe my finger is too sensitive LOL

I love this world!

Don't be a hater. Not one of my favorites but an excellent shmup nonetheless. 4* game. Better than many shmups released today and it's more than two years old.

I agree.

This was one of the first really great shmups on the app store. Of course, now there are far better ones, but it's still worth a play (especially for free).
