    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.
