This is a game demo and no finished game!
Internet permission required for Cordova (former PhoneGap) to work without spamming the log with network error messages. Only internal traffic is created.
See my homepage (link below) for a browser version of the App (steer with wasd and fire with k). The Benchmark is comparable between any device running it because the code is exactly the same.
You need a high end smartphone / tablet to run it near to smoothenes and even those will suffer from too many objects on the screen.
Steer your ship with the accerelometer and tap anywhere on the playfield to fire your missiles. Null position is based on how you hold your phone when tapping the start button.
Killing enemies with rockets racks up points, ramming them takes them away as a penalty.
This is a Game & Benchmark demonstrating the power of web based game design. It's based on JQuery, JQuery Mobile, GameQuery and Apache Cordova (aka PhoneGap) for packaging into an Android App. JQuery Mobile is used for the start button only, so it could be spared.
Cordova is also available for iOS, Blackberry OS, WebOS and many more mobile platforms. Code once, deploy many :-).

I also added an FPS counter, a Scoreboard and the Benchmark function.
On my Samsung Galaxy S 2 (1,4GHz) the average FPS is about 22, same as the Asus Transformer Prime.
Let me know how the app performs on your Smartphone (Brand, type and OS version).
