Roach's comments:
Do you just ADORE cute bird games?
Do you love GETTING coins and shiny stuff without really learning and applying your skills?
Do you get turned off by a challenge?

IF SO, STOP READING NOW.

Do you like unforgiving old-school arcade games that grab you by the neck and severely test your SKILL as a gamer?

IF SO, CONTINUE READING.

"Great Space Coaster!! 3.5/5! Based on mastering one simple but deceptively deep mechanic. StarTrail is a good example of the resurgence in arcade action."-148Apps

"High replay value! 8/10-ProGamist

StarTrail is an old-school type space arcade game, disguised as a free runner.
It's unforgiving. One mistake and you DIE and start over.
Getting high scores on the leader board takes skill, strategy and....well, skill.
Having the reflexes of a Fighter pilot really helps, too!!

Hey Sanuku, thanks a ton for taking the trouble to play, record, upload and post!!

A few pointers:
1. Picking up the orbs charges the powerup bar. Engaging powerup gives you a few seconds to pick up any object you like!
2. Use the levitation feature by touching the screen and tilting- the ship rises above the trail, but only till the fuel gauge runs out (top right corner)

The price of the full version od StarTrail is going back up to $0.99 on the 4th of December, so this would be a good time to get the full game for free!

I like the game, the concept (matching game disguised as an endless runner) works well and the controls are responsive. But it's so frustratingly difficult, I keep losing over and over, often before even getting enough points for a single credit. Please consider making the start easier or adding difficulty levels.

Hey, thanks a ton for confirming what we suspected all along!! We were surprised that people weren't getting high enough scores, while we the devs (duh!) were getting thousands. We are definitely going to make it simpler!

Thanks a ton!
