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

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!!

It is said to be the source of untold wealth. Collect the biggest treasure in the universe!

THE TASK AT HAND
Maneuver Rudy's spaceship in deep space along the trail of the Fortune Star. Treasure comes in four colors and three shapes, and you need to collect it in sequence of color or shape.

FEATURES
Stunning deep-space visuals! Test your reflexes (and nerves) by becoming the richest blob in the Universe!

Collect energy Orbs to charge your PowerBar. Engage power up and blast through space collecting EVERYTHING!

Earn one Gobble for every 1000 points and UPGRADE your spaceship! NO IN-APP PURCHASE REQUIRED.

Collect Mystery Boxes with awesome single-use articles.

Intuitive and smooth Tilt OR Touch controls.

Repeatable tutorial level.

Game Center leader board support.

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!
