2/5 stars
Not bad needs work

There is one issue with the game the touch screen. When using the touch method your finger covers the ship so you can't see what's going to hit you . Make it so it's like some of the other jet games. You can use your finger to controll but you can also see the ship your finger doesn't cover it . the rest of the optional contolls are just horrible. Tilt just moves the ship to slow and the other version makes the scree tiny. So just fix the touch version and you'll have yourself five stars. Otherwise a good game

5/5 stars
Blast from the past :)

This game brings back good memories of hours and quarters wasted away in a video arcade. Graphics-wise, nothing has changed too much which makes it ideal for retro gamers who are looking for the same side-scrolling coin-op action of days gone by. Playability, however, is pretty impressive. I love the Tilt & Touch mode which enabled movement by simply tilting the iPhone in the desired direction. Bundle that with the auto-fire feature and you're all set for hours of easy going fun.

My only issue is that the size of the iPhone screen makes it tricky to maneuver the craft around the limited space, especially in tight spaces and when you're faced with a hail of bullets and enemy ships. I guess this adds to the thrill and challenge, but it can get quite tricky. Fortunately, it's easy to master since the enemies spawn from the same locations!

Aside from this, the game is amazing. It's easy to pick up and difficult to put down. Whether or not you're familiar with R-Type, this is a must-have for shoot 'em up fans. Totally enjoyable :)

4/5 stars
Great game

This game is awesome. Would be five stars but the controls need some work.
