App description: Spaceborn is a science fiction action shooter set in space where you take command of an alliance spacecraft. As one of the last surviving fleet of the human alliance, you are entrusted with the difficult task of holding off and countering the aliens' imminent attack. However, your space station's docking area is too small - it is only capable of sending out only one ship at a time.

Your task is to overcome this hurdle and defeat as many aliens as you can. Your reward may be a better, faster, stronger ship next time around. It's time to fight as many hordes of enemies as you can survive and collect every coin they give you in order to upgrade your ship and beat the rebel commanders.

Prepare for a space adventure filled with lots of action, tight controls, amazing graphics and synth-heavy music.

Features:
- Immerse yourself in the fast-paced, relentless action!
- Enjoy the beautiful graphics that fit the space atmosphere!
- Engage in epic boss fights!
- Prepare to die, because its hard as hell!
- Face endless hordes of enemies after completing the main campaign!
- Upgrade your ship to prepare for your next run!
- Play the game completely uninterrupted - no ads will show up because you supported the developer!

Judging by the ratings NikolaNikolov and bigticket21 have (they've rated it 5/5 stars) but i 'think' we need some unbiased reviews!

Hi, there is a free version of the game, and if you wish to try the game out (without spending cash), we encourage you to do it. There just isn't a better way to check out a game than to get it for free! We would love any thoughts on the game, be it positive or negative!

You can download the free version from here.

Apparently the developers still don't know/ignore what control option the customer wants...pity. What could (probably) be a decent shooter here is simply pretty unplayable or enjoyable as it is. This of course is only imho.

Edit: i "sacrificed" myself to go further into the game and maxed out the damage and ship speed. The movement is still pretty sluggish and the damage is not really noticeable if you meet the second boss, but maybe it's just me.
When the first boss starts shooting missiles, the screen freezes for a second ! (I don't do re-boot/start with lite versions). There is no Gamecenter, also.

The music/sfx sounds, the graphics and the gameplay is actually pretty decent (no new invention at all) but the turnable turret on the ship helps if you have to let pass an enemy behind you, cool.

Seeing my app-store, this is your first game and i tend to give you this little dollar support either for a decent update (relative touch controls) or future projects, whatever. I see talent here.

Hi, thank you so much for your thoughts on the game!

Can you please specify what is the control option that is missing? We were thinking about adding tilt controls, but it was just something that kind of got left behind. We would love to implement it in a future update, if the app gets some popularity in the process. Same goes for GameCenter integration (and Google Play Services for the Android version).

Damage should be noticeable at first (I believe it's almost twice as powerful at the last level). However, enemies get stronger and harder to beat after you kill a boss you haven't killed before, so that is probably the reason you didn't notice the damage. The idea is that "you need" to upgrade it, otherwise the game just gets too hard.

Thank you so much, again, for the support! It really is our first app, and we hope to continue making games/apps in the future

''Theres a decent variety of enemies, power ups to collect, and upgrades to unlock. After completing the four-boss campaign, you can test your skills in endless survival.''
