    The screenshots look great. It looks like it uses a d-pad for controls.

    I have bought Cro-Mag and Nanosaur from pangea. After those two purchases, I will never buy anything from them again.

    I agree that tilt would be nice...I'm just wondering what that would look like in this game.

    I would imagine that it would work exactly like Bugdom.... somewhat of a letdown...

    I'll definitely be buying this one. It looks similar to bugdom which I enjoyed, but better. I think Pangea gets an undeserved bad rap, they've got some decent games (and plus a 99c price drop is inevitable)

    I've been anticipating this, I think Pangea now knows the ins and outs of iPhone devving. I got an email from them about porting this awhile back.

    Didn't Pangea specify somewhere that they stopped porting apps from the Mac and are now focusing on iPhone-only apps, due to its great potential in the market?

    yeah but antimatter their first iphone only app was a stinker so probably they are going back the games they already know are decent instead of taking another risk at moment. antimatter shook my faith in pangea but this game looks kinda cool so i think i might give them another chance if the game is like 2.99 or something. i dont think ill pay five bucks for it

    Pangea needs to learn how to really polish their game interface, menu, texture, etc.

    Look at the setting's page on their games and you'll understand.

    Bah. I hate these games. The only good game from them was Enigmo and even that's kinda hard to control on the iPhone. They really don't get the control right. In no game. And I don't think that they learn. They don't need to - people buy the stuff over and over.

    Pangea, way to reuse bugdom, and also make the controls take up half the screen! Bad first impression

    Wow look at the cluttered mess they call HUD!!! You would think they would take into account the tiny viewing area available since your thumbs will be covering a good portion of the screen moving and shooting.
