Retro-looking games are always a fun distraction from the high-end graphics and expensive production of games from big developers. Captain Nova is one of those old school-style games.

Captain Nova has crashed on a strange planet and lost pieces of his ship all over the planet’s surface (this reminds me a bit of an old Sega Genesis game, Toe Jam and Earl). Of course, the planet is filled with all kinds of evil creatures that want to prevent the captain from retrieving his lost spaceship pieces.

The game includes 30 challenging levels and an original soundtrack to accompany the game. The game looks like it’s setup in the standard, 2D platformer style with a D-pad for movement and a single button (the “A” button in this case) for actions. The captain collects gears on the various levels and looks to pick up power-ups like a cups of coffee. Apparently Captain Nova likes his caffeine.

The game is going for $0.99.
