DRM: Death Ray Manta $1.99 -> FREE

To celebrate Microsoft dropping its draconian DRM from the Xbone, Death Ray Manta has gone FREE for 24 hours, down from $1.99 (or 1.49 in pounds, shillings and pence).

https://itunes.apple.com/app/id592858193?mt=8

The desktop version is down to 69p as well, which is like one US dollar or something:

I could not get the App Store link StuAA posted to work. Here is the link I got by manually searching the US App Store:

this is a great game, especially on the icade core. I reccomend it 100%. Even though it says that it doesn't support iPad 1, it actually works quite well.

Might as well! It's free, after all

Funnily enough, the time I heard about this game- actually the only time I've seen the game mentioned other than this thread- was in a tweet from someone important from Sony that said something in response to "Will Sony have DRM?" and it said something like, "Announcing DRM for Vita! Death Ray Manta!"

Or something...

Trivial and useless story, but I was entertained by it, so I thought someone else might as well

I've played a lot of retro games before, but I have never seen a video game that felt just like the eighties, not like this. Very unique aesthetics, and pretty fun too!

In case anyone was somehow on the fence about getting this for free, don't be. Great game, was happy to pay for it, especially if you like traditional arcade action. Worth paying for and a no-brianer at free.
