Just gave this a try and I really like it! Cool graphics and a nice soundtrack couple with some nicely intense schmup action.

Definitely look forward to the full version coming out.

I played on an iPhone 3G and when there was a lot going on there would occasionally be a brief pause, usually right before a big boom or a larger saucer exploding, but not enough to disrupt gameplay.

The cracks on the screen for your health is neat visually, but I do think it would be good to give players the option of a more traditional health bar. I also wish the Air Squadron powerup would last a bit longer...feels very brief right now.
