AlienSpace's comments:
Alien Space Retro is now in the App Store!

The game is a dual-stick space shooter, based on Alien Space. It features all new retro-inspired graphics, 30 campaign levels, survival mode and a wide selection of weapons including some new ones available through IAPs. There's also a new game mode called Lost in Space which is also available through IAP.

The game also has leaderboards and achievements through both Open Feint and Game Center. It's universal and has full support for playing your iTunes music while in-game.

The game is also just 99, which includes the full 30 level campaign and survival mode, as well as 6 weapons to chose from (3 light weapons and 3 heavy weapons).

In-App Purchases (IAPs): In addition to the 6 available weapons in the game, there are 4 new ones that can be purchased through in-app purchases (individually for $0.99). Alternately, you can purchase the Weapon Pack ($1.99) which buys all IAP weapons (including any that may be added in the future). There is also a new game mode, Lost in Space, which is available through IAP for $0.99.

So go try it out guys. I think you'll like it (ok, I know, I'm biased).

I've been playing for hours. Thank you for such a detailed reply. I actually didn't know the picked up heavy weapons are stored. That's fantastic. Lol

I think I broke level 10. Lol. The green boss spawned and immediately I launched 6 bombs. It died. Now for the last half an hour I'm just destroying asteroids and occasionally 3 circular ships with saw blades sticking out show up and I destroy them. The level simply will not end. Any ideas?

Hmm... sounds like it might be a bug. It's very rare, but I do think that someone once mentioned a similar occurrence. If that happens I think the only way to get out of it might be to die and restart that level. I mean, that's not a great option because you'll lose your stored up ammo and any score you got since level 5, but I'm not sure there's any other way to get out of it. Sorry... wish I had a better answer for you. =( I remember trying to track down that bug about 2 years ago, but was never able to replicated it.
