App Description

Star-Burst is a unique, fun, and beautiful game for the iPhone and iPod Touch! With beautiful retina graphics, particle effects, sounds, and creative gameplay, Star-Burst is a relaxing and enjoyable gaming experience for all ages!

The goal is to score as many points as possible before time runs out. You score points by hitting gold stars and you lose points by hitting red stars. The stars will shrink until they disappear.

The ball accelerates toward where ever you are touching the screen and bounces off the walls using realistic physics! Hold in front of the ball to get it moving, touch behind it to slow down, or touch above/below the ball to "swing" it! The concept is comparable to thinking of a rubber-band between your finger and the ball.

The better you are doing, the more perks you will receive like plus signs which give you extra time and 'wild stars', which try to avoid YOU! If you hit one, you will receive bonus time and points! However, if you are doing poorly you will be presented with more obstacles such as bombs which, when hit, will leave holes in the ground! Avoid the holes at all cost or else... Game over!

Also, for those who are more 'visual' people, we have also included the setting to turn on a faint line between your finger and ball to help give you a feel for controlling the ball.
