Amazing. For smaller platforms.
What about porting Satazius on mobile platforms? iOS, Android, Windows Phone /w Xbox Live support, anything. Interesting game with awesome visual style, but it's too small for PC.

No game is "too small for PC". Tell that to anyone who's a fan of the shmup genre. The PC is an extremely versatile gaming platform; games should not be required to be arbitrarily short or long to be on it.

I would not really want to play on a mobile platform unless I get the option to use a Bluetooth controller. Playing shmups with slide controls annoys the hell out of me.

Too small for PC? No, it's a shmup, shmups are smaller games by nature and they fit a whole lot better on PC than on a touchscreen device. Shmups have to be made easier for mobile gaming, people think they're great at Cave games on their phones but stick them in front of a cab and watch them last all of 30 seconds.

There's PILES of shmups on PC, many of which, sadly, are not on Steam, but with Greenlight maybe more of them will end up here.

There are some shmups like Shogun HD and Xelorians that have taken the touch screen platform and really ran with it. They are both state-of-the-art 2D scroller masterpieces in my opinion. I don't think either on of them would translate very well to the PC though. The Cave shooters on Google Play really bite. If you don't believe me, download one of them and see for yourself. The graphics are lousy and the quality of gameplay with Ikaruga on a touch screen really sucks. I haven't really run across any top-down scrollers on the PC that capture that white knuckle rush that I get from Xelorians or the finesse that it takes to get on the leaderboards with Shogun HD. But when it comes to side-scrollers the PC still seems to be the king. Satazius rocks!
