Default Star Thief (by Paul Ewers) [Universal]




Hello TouchArcade! I'm happy to announce Star Thief has officially gone LIVE for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as of Friday, June 14th for $2.99 USD! My name is Paul Ewers and I'm an independent game developer based out of San Francisco, CA and I've been working on this game for quite some time! It would be an honor to hear what you all have to think! Constructive criticism welcomed.



World 1: Green Greens


World 2: Arctic Frost


World 3: Purple Night


World 4: Badlands



Gameplay Trailer



Brief Overview

Star Thief is a truly original level-based arcade game designed specifically for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The core gameplay mechanic is simple - collect all the stars by tapping or swiping on the screen.

However, it becomes more complex as you avoid touching freeze blocks and levels increase speed. Some stars are trapped in cages that can only be opened by dragging and smashing rocks into them. Other stars are locked away inside treasure chests that require keys, and some stars are even hidden within eggs that need to be cracked open or smashed together.

There's a wide variety of game mechanics used to provide enough gameplay for each level to feel unique and challenging.

Star Thief will be available on iOS as a universal app with Game Center integration.

Highlights
• FREE level pack updates
• 50 levels
• 4 unique worlds
• Beautiful RETINA art
• Game Center achievements
• Multi-touch enabled for local co-op play
• NO in-app purchases
• NO ads
• NO annoying push notifications

Thanks for reading!

I'm very impressed with what I'm seeing in the gameplay video. The game mechanics seem familiar, but look fresh in this context. The art and sound are very appealing, too. Kudos on what appears to be a truly fantastic game.

Looks interesting. I am willing to lay down AUD$2.99 to see what it's like!

Pressing "purchase" button now!

I have to split for now, but I just had to post something. I'm shocked at how good this is. It truly deserves every bit of praise it's gotten so far and I'll even throw this out there, as early as I am into the game: iOS classic, deserves to be on everyone's iOS device. Buy this.
