Seems fine to me

I haven't played this game on my iPhone for quite a while, so I'm not familiar with the updates that people are complaining about. I just now played it for the first time in a long time, and I found it extremely enjoyable and I have no idea why people are complaining about the updates. I found it to be flawless and reminded me of the time when I worked as a dishwasher at a bar that had this game in 1981 and we would drill a hole in a quarter and used thin fishing line to get free games. Personally, I highly recommend this app.

This is how to make a retro port!

Near-perfect arcade emulation of the original game with bonus artwork and tips as well as challenging achievements. No ads, in-app purchases, or any other junk bogging it down. Only “complaint” is that the gyroscope and slide control options are useless except for the achievements for trying them out; I doubt anyone actually prefers them. Other developers should take notes from this app.

Slow Response & Terrible Shooter

I’m so disappointed with the design of this game. The controls are slow to respond, the shooter is TERRIBLY SLOW, and it frequently knocks you out of the game entirely when you move the controller, which also frequently causes you to have your ship destroyed when you resume the game. Not happy with this purchase.
