    It looks very polished. Here's the app store description:
    Pilot a spacecraft and destroy the enemy fleets while controlling from left to right and from top to bottom with the accelerometer.

    Exceptional playability.

    Become the best pilot of the world and obtain credit in order to buy better spacecrafts in the shop.

    Publish your scores on line and compare them to the other players of the whole world.

    Find tips allowing you to pass the levels more easily and to increase your scores. Judiciously choose your bonus to change your weapons, increase your scores,… and many more surprises.

    - Carry out your dream… to pilot : realistic controls.
    - 6 spacecrafts to be chosen
    - The best 3D graphics for a shoot'em-up
    - Hours of flight : several levels, bosses, tunnels to travel through, several drives and races and as well two levels of difficulty.
    - An innovating acceleration lever allowing you to control your speed while flying.
    - A tactile button for shooting.

    I think everyone is waiting for somebody else to try it first.:p

    It really does look great, but I'm trying to hold out.

    Now it's down on my device so I can answer...

    At the beginning you must enter your nick and choose a flag to enable the right in-game text language for you. You can choose english, german, french and some other (unimportant :p ), the german translation is quite bad, "some" mistakes, but I guess the english original should be fine.

    It's NOT a rail shooter, you can move left/right & and up/down with the accelorometer (But You're not be able to make a looping, if you get to high, the game force your plane down)

    Actually no possibility to calibrate the steering, it seems to be having the same "dead spot" angle as Super Monkey Ball (30 ° I think?). But it works quite fine, better than in Armaggeddon Squadron (AS with default settings) :p

    The menu is a bit disappointing, looks not really professional, also all fonts in the game (menu or ingame) look very ugly and hard to read, I think they are bitmaps and no real rendered text lines.

    I tried actually one "race" level, you have to collect colored boxes in the air, done this one level in 40 seconds lol, it is VERY easy the game.

    Graphics are not as good as in Nanosaur 2, N2 has better textures and light effects. But I am glad I buyed VyFlight, it is a good game to replace the shi*** SciFly on your device (which I did :D ), because it looks similar, but has better maps and more level desings.

    hey props to you for getting the game and reporting back! Now would you say there's enough potential to try to get the dev to join the forums and give them feedback? Great to know it's better than SciFly, great comparison here, thanks for the review!

    SciFly isn't as great because it was written by a high school student is his spare time. What did you expect? Star Fox?

    VyFight seems a little too buggy now. I think I know why everyone was so reluctant to try the game out: it seemed too good to be true.

    Absolutely! The game has potential, also room for improvement of the existing.

    Hi Kalhaan

    Congrats on game - it looks amazing from screenshots - think a video of gameplay would help this to sell as the graphics look almost too good to be true

    also you might want to contact Apple as, on the UK iTunes page - the description is all in French! (To complete the irony, the Language of the App is listed as English only!)

    just about all I could work out about the game was that it is Le shoot'em up 3D and uses "Un bouton de tir tactile"

    So Not For You has helped out by posting the details at start of thread - cheers for that

    Looks amazing! Might pick this up, but I don't want to if it's horribly buggy. Also, the ending part of the video (where it's a side scrolling view) really reminds me of that epic game Einhander.
