Deep Space Rescue ($.99)

Strange radio signals from outer space are interfering with some satellites on Earth. A Scout is sent from earth into deep space to investigate the signals but she never returns. You were sent out on a rescue mission to find her. You determined her ship's last known coordinates and found the ship docked at an alien space station. But, the Scout is not on the ship. You discover your radio is too weak to reach earth. So, you try to use the radio on the scout ship. However, it appears to be damaged. There are signs of a struggle throughout the ship. Equipped with only the government issued machine gun from training, it is up to you to rescue the Scout, before it's too late.

For comparison only, if you enjoy the intensity of fps games like Doom, Quake, or the Unreal Tournament series, then Deep Space Rescue is just for you! Be sure to compare!

Packed with action, fun, and strategy, this first person shooter is great for all ages.

Deep Space Rescue works with all generations of the iPhone as well as the iPod Touch

It looks almost identical to Half Dead by the same developer. They have just repackaged a terrible game to try and make it sell.

i was thinking that it looked like half dead but at the top it does have things that look like missions which means it could be... not bad

Did the developer of Half-Dead ever make that game playable?
If I recall the frame rates were terrible.

This game is the very definition of "meh". I bought it with low expectations, and it met them.
