[iPad] Star Defender 3 & 4 ---> .99 EACH

Awem Studio sale to celebrate the release of Cradle of Rome HD.

SD 3+4 are old school arcade shooters similar to Galaga with detailed HD graphics, tons of power-ups and varied enemy design. If you enjoy Warblade or Galaga 30th Anniversary, you owe it to yourself to grab these two titles while they're on sale.

Thanks to whoever moved the thread from the iPad section. I thought iPad-only sales wouldn't apply here since it's under the "iPhone and iPod Touch" section but I guess I was wrong and the added iPad mention in the topic title makes it appropriate.

I don't know why these two titles aren't Universal but hypothetically speaking they might have first developed them for PC and then decided to try an iPad port since it didn't require too much re-engineering. Maybe the Retina display is too small for it and Awen aren't ready to invest much more effort in these titles.

I think I will get just one of these to start with. Can anyone recommend which one?

They're very similar. I'm not too far in SD4 but keep hearing that it has more stuff than its predecessor, which is a fine game by itself. I would recommend that you watch some video footage from SD4 and grab that one if you feel it suitable. I have played a fair share of SD3 and can say confidently that it's a lot of fun, if a bit easy.

I have SD 3/4 on PC, and it's a shame they didn't make it universal, though they are older games often offered for free and the "not likely to invest more" scenario is likely. Excellent Galaga-style game; I'm hoping against hope they change their mind and go universal anyway.
