This is the pocket Wing Commander / X-Wing / Freespace / TIE Fighter game I wanted. Controls and enemy physics feel right, with enough inertia to seem like a space game but arcadey enough that you still have control over your ship. Touch and tilt controls are equally effective, depending on your dexterity and situation. The new mission modes provide the story structure that isn't strictly needed but make this feel more complete than the earlier versions of the game. It has in app purchases, but they're all optional, there are no nags, and extra purchases are not needed to progress and have fun. The developer has a bunch of tutorial videos and seems to understand what made the old space sims from the 1990s work well. The only thing that really bugs me? The tiny fonts are hard to read on the iPhone and should be changed (though they look great on the iPad).
Not recommended game, POOR
The targeting system doesn't work at some time during the game. It took a lot of time to destroy one ship. Doesn't recognize the ship you purchased.
Enemies fly through asteroids, you cannot. Backgrounds art is crude and not very attractive. Controls are boring. Bad story line. Etc, etc, etc.
