:
I used to play this game often on an old Atari ST computer -- the only game I've been able to finish without a cheat code. Over the years, I've always kept an eye out for a PC version, was pleasantly surprised to see one for my iPhone.

It doesn't quite play like I recall. The accelerometer control quickly becomes annoying and nowhere near mimicks the control of the original. Constantly having to tilt the screen both distracts and detracts from gameplay. The control scheme used in Venan Entertainment's Space Miner would be perfect for this game. However it's done, the screen should remain at a constant viewing angle during play.

I'm glad to see this game has been re-imagined for the iPhone/iPod Touch, I just wish it felt more like I was playing the original. Hopefully they'll re-think the game controls; but given the last update was October 2009, I'm wondering if the game is pretty much going to remain as-is.

5/5 stars

Star Raiders is back -- and better!

:
Thanks for making this. The iPhone has become the last refuge for space shooters, and until now, they've been all tactics and no strategy. This game is a great blend of action and planning, just like it's ancestor, Atari's Star Raiders. I love the retro-style instrumentation and gameplay.

5/5 stars

Yes - Star Raiders with mega graphics & sound upgrade!

:
I have been watching PC and Mac program releases for years and years hoping to find something like this. If you are an old Star Raiders fan this is a must buy - If not, learn what the big deal was about way back when. The gameplay is rich and involving and the action is fantastic. The iPhone interface was just what the game needed - great job.
