App Description

***Previously Featured on iTunes Games "New & Noteworthy", "What's Hot", and "What We're Playing" sections!***

The best space shooter in the App Store is now Retro! Inspired by classic arcade games, Alien Space Retro combines the best of old and new, bringing dual-stick shooter gameplay to a new level. Your mission: Pilot your ship into the heart of enemy space and destroy anything that gets in your way.

The game features:

-amazing retro-inspired graphics
-fast-paced gameplay
-upgradeable ship systems and weapons
-multiple weapon types to choose from
-30 campaign levels
-Survival mode
-Normal and Hard difficulty levels
-leaderboards and achievements through Game Center

The challenge: Unlike other shooters where the best the enemy AI can do is to run into you, Alien Space Retro offers a wide variety of enemies wielding the same weapons available to you, and then some. Blasters, lasers, tractor beams, missiles, photon torpedos… they'll throw everything they can at you. Are you up to the task?
