    Rapture. It sucks.
    I think it's a pretty fun game. I'll buy the full version when it comes out. I hope they add a touch control option though.

    What the hell?

    Where is my frickin full Version of this game? I played through the demo about
    20 times and I want more!

    Is this a cruel joke or what?
    Just release the full game already!

    Actually, there is a touch control option. Undocumented feature, apparently. Touch and hold the screen at start up without moving the device. Viola! Touch controls.

    It only works about half the time, though. When quitting the app, and starting it again touch controls will inevitably not work (goes back to motion sensing). In that case, restart the device and try again.

    Honestly, though, the motion sensing is the better option. Touch controls works two ways (at once): press a direction to move in that direction (which is not easy to control as there's a delay when changing directions) or hold your finger over the ship and control it directly (in which case you block you view of the ship, and there's still a slight delay).

    Wow, didn't know about this before.
    Perfect control and great weapons!
    Would be fantastic as a full game.
    Hopefully it comes soon. Together with the full version
    of Space Deadbeef....then my shooter heart would be happy! :)

    Have you been able to get the touch control "option" to work, Chiller. Again, it only happens once in a while, and I don't know the exact way it works, but the way I think it does the very, very few times that it does happen is when holding "start" and keeping my finger on the screen until the game starts up.

    Also, slightly off topic...but I've gotten the hang of Sky Thunder. I don't think the problem with that game is the touch controls per se, but rather there seems to be minimal animation, causing "skips".

    Also tried Phull. Pretty decent hori shmup with some nice boss battles.

    Keep trying. I'm not pulling your leg or anything. Touch controls are there, but I think it's a glitch or something. And it's pretty obvious that Dragon Force is an early demo, as sometimes when I play it the ship's animation during turns doesn't fully animate. It'll animate when turning to one side, but stay completely static when turning in the opposite direction. And it switches each time I play.

    Also, have you played MetalAngel?

    I've read that the last update greatly improved controls, but I'd rather get someones opinion before spending the 2 bits.

    I've only played the Mac Version and I wasn't that impressed.

    Well, I'll keep trying with the touch controls.
    I also have the same problem with the animations. When you upgrade your ship its the same but with the other side instead.
