It looks good.
Since you didn't leave the link, here it is: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297651103&mt=8
And, if I remember correctly, this game was out for like 99 cents for the first 2 days or something.
Looks good to me! I'm all over SHUMPS.
as a shooter fan, i immediatly had to buy it.
BUT the controls are noooot good.
accelerometer controls are way too lame
and touch controls are also a bit strange....
grafics are nice, great retro-shooter feeling.
hope for a controller update.
then i'm sure to enjoy this game alot.
Ya know, that really sucks!
I love these space shooter style games and I can't believe someone hasn't got it right yet, I mean c'mon!
Graphics look superb, old school style with lots of power ups but please PLEASE fix the controls for cryin out LOUD!
Is it worth 5 dollars? I also enjoy shooter games.
At the moment I would say, no.
But if the controls are becoming better, what i really hope, then hell yes!!
Grafics are great, weapons look awesome, big end bosses (did it to level 4 so far). But I really hate the controls, too slow when tilting, to fast when touching. But perhaps, it's just me complaining about. But I'm also sure it will get cheaper very soon
I really LOVE Shmups but I'm waiting for a price drop on this one.
There are hardly any decent shmups out there, Tilt Fighter, Deadly Space and Space Mania, they all suck.
It has a price drop. The video on youTube looks good, but the enemies seem to be a bit repetive. Of course, the controls must do the work... Should I buy it for 2,99 US$ or wait for other shooters like Centipede? I currently own 2069 and Chopper and Blue Skies and Missile Command and like all of them for the style, graphics, gameplay and controls.
Yeah I was just notified by Appsniper that this has dropped.
I'm going to buy this (I'm just a sucker for shmups) and then I will post my impressions here.
shmups is just such a stupid word
It sure is!
My first impressions that is could have been a decent game if they hadn't messed up the controls. This is a "bullet hell" style game, that means there is shit coming at you from every direction and with controls this bad you will have a hard time dodging anything. You can choose between accelerometer (like in deadly space or tilt fighter) or touch (like in Rrootage) controls but both suck. The accelerometer is a little bit better (I was not dying as often when I used them).
My verdict is that, unless you are a hardcore shmup fan, skip this game until they release an update that fixes the controls.
Thanks. I'll pass.
I hope Platypus is going to be good.
It was a great game on the PSP.
Control is want is needed the most with a shooter. It must have control!
Sky Thunder 1.1 improves control and speed
I'm author of Sky Thunder. Thank you for your support and concern about this game.
I've received a lot of feedback about the "bad" control. This was a special design, and through practice I realized it's not good. It was expected to control aircraft by "relative" movement, that is you finger can be anywhere on the screen, no necessary close to the aircraft. When you finger move left the aircraft turn left, and vice verse. However it's not easy to accept and looks weird, so that's the problem.
1.1 has changed the control mode to "trace" finger movement. No matter where your finger moves, the aircraft follows you. This way is normal and natural. Hope you'll enjoy it
Besides control mode, 1.1 also slow down the speed of enemy aircrafts and bullets, then it's more playable.
The new version is already submit for Apple to review, and will be online in several days. Please try it.
Sincerely thank you for your support and care. This game can never be better without your support and care. If you have more suggestion, please feel free to contact us.
It makes me confident to know that you want to fix things. There are so many things going on during the game. Some of them are a little distracting. There is so much going on. Did you work on that on the update you just submitted?
There isn't yet a favorite shooter in the App store. Sky Thunder is promising. So, you have a great opportunity here.
This is the whole point of the game, as I said earlier this a bullet hell type of game.
@ developer: Can't wait for the update! If this fixes the controls as promised this would be one hell of a shmup!
Thank you for your support. Please try the update 1.1 and give me feedback
Yep, this game is exciting, as you said "bullet hell".
New version is on review, and should online soon. Looking forward to your new review
