    Gentlemen, are there any good fixed shooters (classic shmup) like Pleaides, Phoenix, Satan's Hollow, Galaxian etc. on iOS.? I know we have a mediocre port of Space Invaders and some mediocre ports of Galaxian. Are there any others that you guys know of?

    :confused:

    Galaxoid, by Jacob Davis. So far so good. Plays really well. :D

    Not the traditional shmup, but Super Crossfire was re-released (a bit while back) with improvements you might want to check it out if you havent yet.

    Other than that and the new ship in Phoenix HD, i dont think there are any recent good ones.

    Oh, and check out Glorkian Warrior too... A very stylized take on the galaxian formula.

    No one gonna mention Radiant/HD and Chillaxian? There's also Velocispider if you can deal with tilt controls. War blade and the Star Defender series are classics but I haven't played them in years and don't know how they've held up.
