    Cool, have grabbed Pew Pew, looks pretty nice.
    I'll avoid avoidal... doesn't look quite so pretty.

    Looks good.

    But I must admit when I read the title I though it was about laser cats.

    My curiosity killed me and thus, clicked.

    Hi guys, I am PewPew's developer. Thanks for all the awesome reviews! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    There are 3 things I wanted to let you know:

    1. Yes the game is hard, but with a little bit of practice you'll get all the gold medals
    2. You can watch replays of the games by pressing the "play" button at the left of the scores. It works for online scores too! It's a little gimmick I know, but still pretty fun.
    3. PewPew 2 is in the pipeline Planned to be sold at 2.99$, and without a doubt worth it if you like PewPew 1.

    Thanks for porting this game over! I've had it in my phone for over 1.5 years. I can't say that about very many apps.

    I'd like to ask you for interest, how hard was it to port your Android/iOS native code to QNX? Was it much work? Any issues with the submission process to Appworld?

    The word hard is an understatement. Nevertheless, I really like it and can't believe that it's actually free. Too cool. Good job and lkg forward to PewPew2.

    PewPew was basically designed to be ported easily, so I had a barebone version running on the emulator in 2 days (no sound effects, no music, no multitouch, no preferences, no online scores... basically just openGL ES).

    After that I waited for my PlayBook to arrive, and the rest took between 1 and 2 weeks, excluding the submission process. The devil is really in the details.

    Regarding the submission process, I wasted a lot of time trying to package the app with the command line. I never managed to do so, partly because their documentation is all over the place.

    Allways nice to see devs on the forum!

    Really like this game, so downloaded it on my android phone and playbook. I have noticed from playing on both that the android seems to be easier to control, might be down to size of the device, friction between finger and screen etc but I wondered if this is something that can be improved on? Android device is (HTC desire hd) The responsiveness seems to be greater, seems like a very tiny but noticeable amount of lag between where my finger is to the direction I am moving/shooting on the playbook

    I have had the touch input lock up on me twice so far, both times while playing a game, the game will continue and it will act as though I had never let go, ship will fly in same direction and continue shooting etc but I can't do anything other then to close the game. i'm on the beta OS 2.0.0.6149

    Really nice game though, great visuals and very addictive! Would love to see a nuke weapon in pewpew 2 with similar effects to the map and sound as the nukes in geometry wars if that is possible! 2.99 sounds like a bargain price!

    I actually find the responsiveness of the playbook to be greater than on my android devices
    Depends on the hardware I guess, not much I can do to improve in this area.

    Yeah I heard that the touch screen sometimes stop responding... I need to find out how to reliably reproduce that problem, but I have an idea of where that could be coming from.
