    Can't have too much of a good thing. Strange looking game watching the video though, kinda just looked like a series of boss fights.

    That said, this...

    ...is an uber feature :)

    I'm really a fan of vertical-scrollers like this one. Seems to be good!

    The video is about boss mode(in this mode you fight a series of bosses).
    But the game has 6 full stages.:)

    Most games in the app store get boring inside of the time it takes to drink a hot coffee.

    That's why we talk about the good ones here :)

    yes, but compared to sky force which is 59p it's 3 times higher. thats my point.

    thats why you wait for other users reviews if you are uncertain. my point is: 2.99$ is cheap.

    so it doesn't make sense to complain about a "high" starting price, when the game is not even released.

    I never got the opportunity to play Hotfield on the PocketPC, but I gave their first title, Firehawk, a 5/10 when I wrote a review for it. My biggest gripe with Firehawk was that even the easy mode was insanely difficult. It seemed the only strategy the bad guys has was lay down so many bullets that you couldn't help but get hit no matter where you moved. Skyforce Reloaded was definitely a better game than Firehawk, so hopefully they stepped it up a couple of notches with Hotfield.

    That video looks totally unappealing to me. Bullet hell FTL. With Skyforce out too i don't think i'll be getting this.

    the view of the developer

    I create the game because I'm a stg fan.

    I don't like the game which is very simple just by add more and more same enemies each level, more bullets but the same pattern.
    I also don't like the game like bullets hell, you have no way to dodge or need very fast control.

    Believe me, HotField( and FireHawk ) is not as above!
    Let me say hotField:
    Yes , there are all sorts of patterns of bullets fired by the boss, but you can double-tap to enter "bullets time" mode, which will slow the time down, so you can find the path to dodge bullets and fight the enemies.
    By closing enemies' bullets, your powerful laser will gain, your fire will enhance. dangerous but addictive:)
    Fire laser (use another finger to double touch, very easy control) when there are lots of bullets, your laser will change the bullets to star bonus, collect them count to some number will gain you a life! in "bullets time" mode the star bonus will be attracted to your ship automatictly.
    The ship is above your finger, the control is very smooth
    There are 4 difficult modes easy-normal-hard-mad, and an extra boss mode which boss is the only enemy
    load/Save, replay, sync with global top 10, not every stg have these features:)
    The game is 9M in size, with more original musics.

    I hope every stg fan will like to play HotField, we will also update it to bring you more fun

    The game has submited to app store (3/3/2009), I will let you know when it is released.

    I'm not saying I disagree with this, but keep in mind the video did just showcase the boss battles. It's actually quite a shame that they didn't show us any level game play.

    @c2matrix: I'm not trying to be disrespectful here at all; this is a legitimate question. What is "stg"? Is that shorthand for shooting, or is it an acronym for something?
