    Looks fantastic. Downloading right now. Will post later tonight with impressions.

    On a side note, also downloading Virtual Villagers since it just price dropped to $1.99

    Just completed the first level, and I am extremely impressed with ExZeus.

    The graphics are some of the most detailed that I've seen on the iPhone. Even with absolute chaos happening on screen, ExZeus' frame rate stays exceptionally high. The sound and music are also top notch. This is a seriously polished title, everything here screams top developer content.

    You move using the accelerometer and it works very savvily. You fire by tapping anywhere on the right side of the screen. You also have a homing mechanism which is triggered by tapping on the left side of the screen. Swipe downward on the screen and you release a volley of bombs through the air.

    Just from my 10 minutes of gameplay, I cannot recommend this title enough. It easily demonstrates what the iPhone is capable of.

    On rails, semi-directional?

    It's on rails, you control the X/Y movement. You are given the ability to flip the Up/Down controls, Reverse the fire button orientation, and calibrate the Up/Down axis. Tilting right or left moves you in that direction, dramatically tilting left/right makes you do a barrel roll.

    Just played until I ran out of credits (you get 4 or 5 continues) and reached a water level, but what a blast! on my 2nd gen touch there was never any slow down and the game has a real smooth frame rate. the best looking and running game I own for my touch right now.

    The game is pure arcade from short but sweet levels which run up to boss fights, you have to learn their attacks so next time you can dodge better.

    I can see myself playing this for a long time due to how fun it is and it's re playability.

    If you need to know the basic controls they seem to be:

    Tap the right side to shoot your gun.
    Tap the left side to lock on missiles, this takes up a little energy each missile.
    slide your finger from top to bottom to drop a bomb, but you do not get many of these.
    Hold down the right side to use your super laser which recharges slowly after use.

    Managed to get to the fourth level before I lost all my continues.

    Echoing my comments earlier, ExZeus is without question the most visually stunning game on the iPhone. On top of being absolutely gorgeous, the game controls flawlessly. The boss battles are both challenging and engaging, and are highlighted prior to fighting by a brief "schematic" overview which details each bosses strengths and weaknesses.
