This game's not worth $1, it's worth $10
Even in the low-cost realm of the App Store, this game is worth far, far, more than the developer is charging. I've been playing it with a cheap gamepad on my MBP, connected to a Cinema display, and even at the best-quality and highest resolution it's smooth, fast, and looks as good as any arcade game I've ever played. If you're looking for anything remotely like "1942"-style top-down shooting, buy this game now. The last two hours of my life may not be coming back, but they were well worth it.
I will admit that some of the more advanced the controls take a bit of getting used to on the gamepad, and don't necessarily match the simple diagrams in the "Help" screen, but they were relatively easy to figure out. (For instance, to fire the special weapons, instead of hitting the gamepad buttons, hold down the right rocker and tap the direction pad.) There are a few other eccentricities similar to games of this type, such as bombs not working on targets the player might think they should, but they do little to detract from the experience.
In short, the best game I've ever played on my mac. I'll be playing for a while. If the developers come to their senses, they'll start charging significantly more for this---buy it at this ridiculous bargain while you can.
I should have been in bed two and a half hours ago. Instead, I'm playing some stupid game called Air Attack. If you're wondering, it's a remake of 1942 - on steroids. The graphics are amazing, great musical score . . . and it keeps going. I've gone a number of levels into it, and I still haven't hit the end. For the price, you'd think it would be over after a few levels. But no. It keeps going. And going. And going . . .
At first, I was thinking that the automatic firing was going to be annoying, but then I realised that I would have been standing on the mouse button pretty much the whole time anyway. That's what I used to do with 1942. So I guess it's not really such a bad idea. Maybe a toggle, so at least I feel like I'm the one doing the firing? But anyway, it's an addictive game that's worth more than what's being charged. As others have noted, this is a $0.99 app in price tag only. Grab it before they change their mind.
And yes, it has elements of Zaxxon, too. And Tyrian. And Raptor. And most of the other scrollers. This one's the best so far.
Good application - fun like an old arcade game
Good application. Love the sound effects and capabilities. There's a little bit of a funny thing with the fireball. That doesn't seem too realistic to me. A couple of the tanks in the land invasion don't die properly. The +1 and above levels are really hard to get through and bombs don't seem to work properly. You have to bomb something 2-3 time before it dies. That's a little frustrating given that the game moves pretty fast and the firepower wielded against you is pretty strong. Other than that, the level 1 of all (easy, medium, hard) is a lot of fun.
