    Certainly doesn't look that good or exciting.
    But, as always, looking forward to your review.

    I think it looks freakin' amazing, much better than a lot of the other rubbish on the app store.

    And you're allowed to think that.
    I personally wasn't overly impressed with the graphics or gameplay.
    Looked pretty 1980'ish and the gameplay looked repetitive. Tell you what, feel free to go spend $9.99 on that, I won't stop you!

    If I still bought apps, I may consider this as a purchase, the 80s graphics are part of it's charm to me, and I like repetitive games, but I understand why you're not £5.99/$9.99 impressed

    Well, quick impression on the game: Graphics are decent, not really the shining point of the game. Animation and framerate is solid though. I like the sound effects and music. Control is pretty good actually, takes a bit getting used to, but once you do it becomes second nature. You can upgrade your missles (air to air weapon) and bombs (air to ground). I can see how the gameplay can be repetitive though. I'm only 6 chapters in, so we'll see how it pans out.

    Man, when I saw the screens I thought this was a turn based strategy game

    9.99 seems a bit steep for a game like this.. or any iphone game.

    I am sorry, but I think Chopper is better.

    Nah, no worries. We're allowed to each have our own opinions.
    As you said, you look at the 80's graphics as charming. I look at it as outdated.
    You like repetitive games, I don't...at least not for $9.99

    I guess in the end, all I'm saying is from my perspective, doesn't look like it's worth $9.99.

    Cool, did you know I like cake better than pizza? See I can make fair comparisons too.
