YESSSSS. Pew Pew 2 is frickin' awesome! The original was cool too, but the sequel really took it to the next level. I don't know if I have it on my phone anymore, but when I did I couldn't stop playing it.

Raiden is 4.99, unless it was .99 for only 3 hours, or so...

I have Sky Force 2014. Stage 7 Insane and Stage 8 on Hard are almost unbeatable... :P Recently they added collectible cards that slightly upgrade your plane, that's a good addition.
