  • This little iPhone gaming app is just loaded with different features. For one, you will be able to enjoy the intuitive and original retina display. This is unlike any other iPhone app out there
  • You will also have a chance to get all of the achievements off of game center. This is only for the operating systems that are a 4.1 and higher. This adds some new depth to the game and gives you a lot more to do
  • The environments in the game are stunning to behold and you will love that they are all in 3D. This is the same for the ships that are in the game, they are also completely in 3D
  • The action in this game is incredibly fast paced and you will buzz through levels that have a ton of action in them. You better be quick on your feet or you won’t last long
  • The controls in this game are also pretty cool. They are very intuitive but at the same time very simple. You will be able to pick up the game and play in no time, but it may take a while to master it all
  • You will also get a chance to get online and see the leaderboards that are on there. You can see how you match up against the other players locally as well as globally
  • Another really cool thing about the game is that you can actually download all of your replays and watch them over again to see how you did or how you can improve
  • There is a practice mode that is included in the game where you can do everything in slow motion so that you are prepared when you jump into the fast paced real game
  • You will love the boss battles, and many of them are very epic
  • There are a total of 4 different game modes that you can play in this game, and each offers its own challenges
  • The unlockables that are in the game are a lot of fun to discover, and the achievements are just as fun to try and get
