Get a trip back to the 80s' with the insanely fast, insanely difficult action of Futuridium EP, one of the hardest game on the App Store!

Futuridium EP is a retro fast paced shootem up with a modern twist, amazing 3D graphic and an adrenaline pumping 45 minutes original soundtrack.


What the press says:
"Piloting a nimble one-man fighter craft and taking on a fleet of epic armed-to-the-teeth alien dreadnoughts has never been so much fun." - indiegames.com

"An amazing debut from an exciting new indie studio" - rgcd.co.uk

"Fun as hell, and I cant stop playing. Seriously, somebody help me." - indiestatik.com


You are a lone starship pilot who get lost in a dimensional loop just before a battle: with a limited and constantly depleting energy bar your only hope is to fly as fast as possible over enormous space dreadnoughts and destroy all the cyan power cubes, replenishing your energy tank and revealing the ships power core, which must be destroyed to move to the next ship.

- No special powers, no bonuses: only the player reflexes count. Your ship, your lasers, your ability!
- You can stop and turn your ship 180 at any time, an essential ability
- No speed control: you always fly as fast as possible...

Game features:
- 13 levels
- 11 original music tracks, for a 45 minutes original soundtrack. You can skip them in games like a jukebox.
- A new energy based gameplay mechanic
- 5 different gameplay speeds, unlockable finishing the game. The game can get crazy fast...
- 4 different graphic skins
- Peculiar graphic style, full of colours and glitchy full screen special effects
- Full GameCenter support, with online leaderboards and achievements
- A credit system: destroy cubes to get in game credits to continue and other goodies
- Cool easter eggs!

Are you up to the challenge?

Head on over to the game's website and download the PC version for free. Should keep us busy (and prevent us from drooling over our keyboards) until we can play it on iOS.

With all the colors in the game, it leads me to think i should wear 3D glasses to make this more epic.
