    Side-Scrolling Arcade games are lacking.

    Anyone else looking forward to this game? (I know I am!)

    Also what are some other side-scrolling games that would be great to see in the store?

    Meh. I wasn't a big fan of Platypus when they ported it to PSP, and I doubt I'll be a fan of it this time around. I'd love to see ports of Gradius, R-Type, or Raiden games to the iPhone, but I doubt that's going to happen. One can only dream...

    I've yet to see a decent control system for traditional shoot'em ups on the iPhone. Autofire and accelerometer based movement usually ruin the experience IMHO.

    I've started prototyping various touch-based controls to see if this sort of game is possible without compromising the gameplay. If things work out, my next game will definitely be an old-school/hardcore (and probably vertical) shooter, if not, it's back to the drawing board.

    This game should rock on the iphone. SHUMPS are being missed on this device.

    Give this app a second look when released. I'll be buying it!

    FRAG ON.

    :cool:

    I'm actually surprise that a lot of people haven't commented or are impressed with this game.

    I see most of the hype is with the long awaited Rolando and the confusion with Cube 2.

    Right you are! Shmups are one of my favorite genre. I can't wait till they release this.

    I remember playing this on one of my older macs, but I have no idea where I got it from.. all I know is that I thought it was awesome and I finished the demo, and I'm not a hardcore shmup fan, so that takes a good game. Looking forward to it.

    Not really excited. Was never a fan of it on the psp so I don't have the highest hopes for this version Would be awesome if we could see an r-type gaMe though

    I'm starting to think it looks a little boring. I wonder how much it'll cost though... :p
