Manta is a slick, fast-paced 3D arcade shooter in the spirit of classics like Carrier Command, Time Pilot 84, and Xevious.

Visit eight different alien worlds (more to come), and pilot your MANTA (Multirole Air... oh I give up, it's a remote-piloted flying submarine) through alien landscapes populated by dozens of different kinds of alien vehicles and structures and blow them up, then (if you feel like it) return your MANTA safely to its carrier, or just turn off the telemetry and let it self-destruct while you grab a snack.

✦ This isn't a rails shooter. Go sightseeing, blow stuff up in any order, backtrack, explore or hang around and blow up stuff no-one asked you to blow up.

✦ The enemies aren't on rails either. Enemies pick their own goals and react to what you do (some even run away). You can dogfight with individual enemy fighters, or perform genius maneuvers and blow up five in one pass.

✦ Simple, streamlined controls: gun, missile, after-burner, and quick turn.

✦ Levels can be completed in a typical supermarket queue, or take your time and try to max out your score

✦ Fly using tilt controls or a "relative glass joystick" (left- or right- thumbed).

✦ Play to beat the clock, or to hit specified objectives.

✦ Original score by Vel9 Studios (but you can listen to your own music if you prefer)

✦ Runs on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

Beyond Bad...

This could easily be one of the worst games I have ever played on ANY platform. I bought this because the first few reviews spoke highly of it, but after getting suckered into it, it's become clear to me that those reviews must be the devs and friends. It is NOTHING like a free roaming Star Fox, it's almost entirely without point at at. This game is so boring and repetitive, I think you're better off playing tic-tac-toe for hours than this. The controls are horrible, the sound effects are worse than cheesy 1960's sci-fi movies, and the graphics are absolutely garbage. The worst part of the graphics are how horrible this game runs. Whether I play it on my 3GS or my iPad, the slowdown is unbelievable. That's particularly stunning considering how bland and blocky the graphics are in the first place, this game must be a coding nightmare, it's so poorly optimized.

Heed my word, people, stay away from this abomination of a game. Don't listen to the dev reviews, and save your money. I wouldn't give this game another star if it was free.

5/5 stars

Very Fun!

Update is great! Awesome game. Not sure what the reviewer below is talking about. Are we playing the same game? This game is well worth the price. Great work!
