What do people who've played it have to say about Battle for Vesta?
MacWorld says, "the graphics are buttery smooth... the controls are simple and intuitive... Battle for Vesta offers up solid space combat"
"This is just a sweet little space shooter with an early 80's retro feel. I really got sucked into the game to the pont that I could hear John Williams playing behind me and Artoo chirping in my ear."
"Pure, unadulterated retro goodness! Imagine Asteroids. Now imagine Asteroids with enemmies. Now imagine Asteroids with enemies in 3-D. If that doesn't sound appealing to you (fool!) then Battle for Vesta may not be for you."
"What sets Battle for Vesta apart is how it adds depth to an otherwise familiar shooter game because of its control scheme... you hurtle into space and literally face the asteroids and ships floating in the galaxy."
Battle for Vesta is a fully 3D space combat simulator set in an asteroid field. If you want a sci-fi adventure in your pocket that boots fast and let's you get right to playing, Battle for Vesta is for you.
The game features:
- Fast, retro cool 3D graphics
- Intuitive, accurate touch controls
- 3D sound effects and iPod playthrough (listen to your own music)

Battle for Vesta is unlike any other space shooter on the iPhone. It puts you in the cockpit of a starfighter to combat fleets of enemies alongside your wingmen. Lead your ships into massive battles in which your skills will determine the outcome!

What's New in Version 3.0
Major Update! Tilt Steering Option! Volume Control!
I bought this eons ago...
And it really isn't that great. It gets somewhat confusing as to where you are, and lack of planets makes it even worse. This is just a simple space shooter, but I give the debs kudos for the wingmen. I hate how almost no games have AI teammates these days.
Tilt controls baby!
drjuliuskelp should learn to use tilt controls! Or submit support questions to the support link!
Don't know if it's a bug or what but I get a wildly gyrating screen for 2 sec then GAME OVER
