Plasma Sky, a shiny new space shooter

There's a thread in progress in the iPhone forum, but I didn't want to miss iPad folks:

Plasma Sky comes out today for Android and iOS. It's my first game for the iPhone and iPad, but I've been working on game professionally for over a decade. It's not terrible, I promise!

Plasma Sky is a vibrant space shooter for mobile devices, featuring 80 levels of blasting and glowing vector-style graphics. It's a tribute to what I love about the shmup genre. Highscores, lots of power-ups, big bosses, lots of variety, and a huge number of bullets and explosions.

Gameplay video (turn up quality!):
