Kinda makes me think of Rez. And that's a good thing.
Universal app?

Bobostein,

Just out of curiosity, what's your top 5 in space shooters? (across all platforms).
And which ones were used as inspiration?

Hi Prodigy_BE,

Good question!

Here's my list in random order:

Rtype
Gradius V
Ikaruga
Dodonpachi
Power Strike

Might be a bit retro for some but there you go

I tried not to copy any game for Touch Force to keep it a unique experience for the user. In terms of inspiration, the idea was to keep the game playable and keep the user feeling in control like in all classics.

Cheers,

I'm old, just like you (an indie-dev too, actually), so the retro thing is a plus. too many games require absolutely no skill these days. And there's few greater experiences than really mastering a game. Finishing Super Ghosts & Goblins with 1 life, and stuff like that :-)

I'll give it a go, once it's out.

Touch Force is an addition to the shooter em up genre so hopefully you will find it fresh

If you can complete Super Ghosts Goblins with 1 life then that would rank you No.2 in the world since i only know only 1 other guy who can do that
