Default Alpha Zero - Arcade Space Action Game by Funkoi

Hi everyone we're releasing our first iOS game on December 13th. It's called Alpha Zero and it's a true multi-touch arcade space action game for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Today we released our pre-launch video and screens to show what we've been working on. Any feedback or comments are welcome. Thanks!

Here's info on the game as well:

In Alpha Zero, players take control of an experimental spaceship and blast enemies from all around them in this exciting, fast-paced space action game. Enjoy jaw-dropping visuals and effects as well as an original sound track that will bring you into space for the ultimate battle.

Alpha Zero is a unique new take on the classic 2.5D scrolling shoot ‘em up. The game has unique controls, beautiful graphics, and awesome boss-fights. Forget about on-screen joysticks, this is a game made for touch input and should redefine some of your assumptions of hard core gaming on a mobile device.

Features:

• Fast and furious action
• Amazing special effects and beautiful 3D graphics
• Unique backgrounds for every level
• Natural multi-touch gameplay
• 8 challenging missions and boss-fights (more to come)
• 35 different enemies
• Numerous upgrades and special weapons.
• Over 15 ship skins
• Full epic soundtrack
• Three challenging difficulty levels (cadet, ace and elite)
• Campaign story-line, fully voiced and subtitled
• Optimized for retina display iPhones and iPads

Hmm... Looks pretty interesting, though I'm a little confused about the controls...

Do you need to use one finger to move the ship, and another to aim? Or does the game auto aim...? What's the deal with that? It's a little hard to tell from the vid.

Looks very promising, indeed.
But i'm a bit afraid of "unique controls".
We'll see soon.

The graphics certainly look excellent, and it does appear to be reasonably innovative in some respects. I'm curious.

You use one finger to control the ship and 1 or 2 fingers to shoot - you can focus fire with a single finger or split to hit multiple waves of ships from different directions.

Thanks...

Think I'll wait for some impressions... Seems like intertwined fingers and blocking the screen with multiple fingers wouldn't really be the optimal way to play a shootemup
