Default Star Horizon

Hi everyone!

We would like to show you trailer from upcoming space shooter -Star Horizon. It went public today and we have hope Touch Arcade community will like it:-)


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


a short backstory:

We journeyed into the stars a long time ago.
We have been building battleships for ages, ready for alien intruders.
But we never find any. We are alone.
So we created a different kind of conflict.
Fighting each other became a new way of living until we made one mistake. We built AI to help us discover our doom.


This is where you start in Star Horizon. You play as John who doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Mothership is destroyed and Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

I hope it sounds interesting and you will like the trailer! The game is very easy to play as we don't use virtual stick - you control the ship by swiping on the screen.

I'll be happy to answer your questions about the game!

This looks fantastic! Not sure how I feel about swipe controls in a game like this but am still extremely impressed with what I see.

Main question: Is this on-rails like Arc Squadron? Looks like it is but Arc Squadron is still one of my favorite space combat games on iOS.

Second question: when is this coming??

Would love to beta test if you are still in that stage of development.

Hey there! Thank you for kind words. Yes this is on rail shooter. We decided that thanks to this it will be much more about pure action and not flying around trying to catch the target:-)

It is coming out 20.03.2014 for iOS devices as a exclusive for some time (we will reveal the release date of Android version later on). There won't be any beta test, however we will check the forum rules again and if it is allowed;-) we can make arrange some kind of a contest here with few copies and other prizes!;-)
