PewPew - Free Retro Shooter

PewPew - Free (06/01/09)

Version: 1.0
Size: 2.8MB
Developer: pewpewgame.blogspot.com
iTunes Link: Download

Developer's Description:

You won't find a story in PewPew, this game is for serious gamers.
The only goal is to achieve the highest score possible. PewPew is a multidirectional shoot them up, where you move and shoot using two virtual joysticks. To play, just hold the iPhone/iPod in landscape mode, and use your thumbs to control the joysticks.

Currently there are two game modes, and more are coming.
Also, in the next version you will have the ability to submit your scores online.
Sweet right?

I just downloaded this and it's actually pretty good. There are 2 modes; one where you have to collect boxes (while dodging enemies and one where you have to shoot enemies. I really like the 3D (2.5D?) vector graphics. It also saves replays of your high scores so you can go back and watch them. The music is also pretty good but there are no sound effects so no "PewPew" sound from your ship.

First Match-3, then Tower Defense, now we're getting tons of Geometry Wars clones

Yeah the vector graphics are really nice, and so are the high score replays. It's a very fun game and you can't beat free.

Just noticed after you submit your score you can watch a replay of the level for each score. The view is also different. In the Assault level the walls look like they react to the music! Very cool! This view would be sweet for actual game play.

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention. I just now played it for the first time and I think it's great. I think the dodge mode is an interesting take on things, sort of like Space Ninja(they changed the name of that, though, I think).

It's definitely well made and deserves a lot more recognition for being free. There isn't whole lot there, but it's surprisingly compelling.
