    Anyone tried this game yet? It looks like an interresting R-Type clone with very Snes like graphics. Sorry but I don't know how to link to an app (unless someone could help me out please).

    This looks absolutely awesome!
    Until Dragon Force Full Version is released this will have to do!

    Is this game just supposed to be a flashy new shooter with lots of powerups and stuff? That's what it looks like to me, but I'm just guessing.

    By they way, hey Chiller, have a good time at the party. (read your tweet)

    I've tried it.

    It's not terrible... but curiously slow paced. It plays very slow, to the point where I didn't enjoy it very much. Not sure if it speeds up later... but that was my initial impression.

    I was worried about that. I guessed the game is just all about the looks but doesn't have much depth or challenge to it.

    Only played a little but this seem pretty cool, one of the better shmups, miles ahead of Sky Thunder, Deadly Space, Tilt Fighter and that other crap.

    I'm going to wait for some reviews. Looks pretty good though.

    It has a 3.5 star average.
    http://moopf.com/appstorereviews/appstore.php?appid=&urlappid=http%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2FWebObjects%2FMZStore.woa%2Fwa%2FviewSoftware%3Fid%3D299789210%26mt%3D8&submit=Get+Reviews

    but people are idiots, one in the German Appstore complains that he is invincible (you are not invincible in this game) and another from the US doesn't understand the power up system. He also says Sky Thunder is better than this. (Its not. The controls in Sky Thunder suck. Hard.)
    I think if you don't understand the power up system in a simple shmup, you were probably riding the short bus to school.

    Will not buy, tired of developers reviewing their own applications and trying to fool customers.

    I agree with that. Nothing will make me run from buying an app quicker then that...

    What is so bad about Sky Tunder?! Yesterday I finished the game twice with not loosing any life until the last end boss. For me THIS still captures the best the old retro arcade feeling of this genre and controls are quite ok. The ship sticks to your finder, slightly above....what is bad in that? It has a fantastic weapon style, huge explosions, nice bitmap graphics...
    So i'm just a bit sad, that it's too short....

    The controls ruin it for me. They are just not responsive enough. Look at the accelerometer controls in Dragon Force, then compare them to Sky Thunder.
    Da liegen Welten dazwischen like you would say in German.
    And the touch controls are completely useless because they lag behind your finger quite a bit.
