    ShootStorm is a fast paced arcade game in the style of Tempest and Gyruss, although it definitely isn’t a clone of either. Fully 3D and with retina graphics.

    Edit to show the new icon:

    Compared to the old one:

    Controls are very simple because firing is automatic. One finger on a dial when playing with touch controls (left and right handed options, plus the control extends some way beyond the graphic so it is hard to slide out of the active area in the heat of action). Just move the device in tilt mode.

    There are Game Center high scores and 39 achievements.

    ShootStorm was originally called TiltStorm, but there was a lot of negative comments about the tilt controls. I added touch control options and made them the default, but people are still put off by the name, so it has changed.

    ShootStorm has been updated to version 3.1.4.
    It brings a new icon, but most importantly, Retina iPad graphics.
    All for only a 1 MB size increase.

    Here is a Retina iPad screenshot:
