It's time to leave the world you love behind.

The year is 2015 and mankind has created the first sentient machine: a humanoid robot. If we only knew what would happen next, we probably could have saved ourselves. Now, were abandoning the only planet weve ever known.

Lastronaut is a pixel-packed, adrenaline-fueled dash for your life as you run, jump, dodge and blast your way through the machine army, equipped with an arsenal of human and robotic weapons to cause mayhem with. At dawn, as the rest of humanity lifts off in the distance, its your mission to reach the last rocket ship leaving Earth. Your life depends on it.

What to expect from Lastronaut:

Infinite gameplay, providing hours of increasing challenge
A multitude of weapons
Beautiful, hand-crafted artwork and animations set to original music
Chaotic action, slow-motion effects, explosions, explosions and more explosions
Local gameplay stats: distance travelled, total kills, and more!
Global leaderboards and world ranking through Game Center
Plenty of achievements to find and unlock!
Save and share your final moments to Facebook or Twitter

Ah scuppered at the last second! Nice find

This is really fun so far, though obviously my time with it has been limited. Recommended on the quality of the visuals alone.

They already had me at "explosions, explosions and more explosions"


Huh, not universal?

Happy to see something from my list come out tonight. I'll be playing this first. Hoping for no Ads or at least an IAP to remove them if they are present.

If I'm remembering right, TA did a write up for this last week. It was supposed to be a "love letter to video games". No ads or IAP whatsoever. Just a guy making a game for us to enjoy. Sounds good to me. About to try it out.

Ok this is a great little runner. Beautiful pixel art and lighting effects, leaderboards and achievements, no ads, just a nice game to have on your phone for when you've got a few spare minutes. Oh, and it's by two guys, not one. Can't see any reason not to at least try it out.

It's a cool game but the slow-motion deaths are ruining it for me... There really should be a way to skip them or turn them off.

I gotta admit I love the look of it. Who would think old pixelly GFX mixed with modern lighting and transparency effects would look so... right.... together?

Kinda fun gameplay but since you can't really get much of a warning where the projectiles are coming from you basically just shoot madly and jump over any obstructions.

Very nice of the Dev not to load it with ads, etc. it's a "love letter" indeed. Big thank you from this gamer anyways!

Wish there would be a native iPad version but can't have everything I suppose.
