    Looks like it's some kind of extreme sports game but it's actually a shmup.

    IIRC this game was pretty damn good, I'll have to give it a try again to see if I am right though because it has been too long since I last played it.

    I remember the E release. Its a decent game that's well worth a download. If I remember correctly its only 8mb.

    Well over a year back when I did the "releases of the week" threads. I kinda feel like I should do them again, mine where more "complete".

    As for the game, it was pretty much bleh.

    too bad theres no way to switch the screens around, the stylus and my hand tend to block part of my view.

    fun little GeometryWars rip-off though.

    Stylus ??? - I've been playing it with the buttons.....

    D-pad moves ship while X/Y/A/B direction of firing (& you can press two button together to get diagonal firing)

    @ GreatWisdom : how the HELL does it 'Looks kinda like R-type '
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I hate to think what 'R-Type' you've been playing
