This could have been a nice game... .
I really love this kind of shooters, but this one is really slow. Ok, there is more going on in later levels.
The badest thing is the control. The plane is were your finger touches the screen
and strangely jumps around your finger. Did you ever hear of relativ touch control?
more speed to the game and relativ touch controls and it could be a nice game.
But why I am complaining? Its for free, so its no problem.

Hi Rudi,

thanks for the comment. I added the relative controls and speeded the game up a bit (30%). And I removed the jitter-problem you are talking about. Its under review by apple now. I hope youll like it more when it gets released. If you have any other ideas to make it better just tell me.

Thanks!

Unfortunately our developer-account was removed by google. You can still find it on alternative appstores like Androidpit:

the Android market is a tough place for good reviews... almost EVERYONE expects to get everything for free there...

Anyway... saying a game is a 'hit' in the Android store usually gets my attention for that reason... not many games are really a 'hit' on the Android market... =o/
