App description: Please Note: Star Horizon requires an iPad2/iPhone 4s/iPod Touch 5 or above.

Star Horizon stands on its own as a title that is well worth playing. The visual splendor alone would be more than enough to justify the purchase.

John 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. 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.

Yep bargain. Hope people get behind this, need to support great games with no IAP's, none of this 'i'll wait for a one dollar price drop' nonsense.

Staying up for this one at midnight, just need to free some space now !

That's 2/3 of what's left of my budget but i've been waiting for this and no IAP means "bring it on!"

EDIT: Oh crap i've been meaning to ask this on the upcoming thread but i dont think i was able to. Is there any way we could swap the movement area and the buttons area?

Yeah i was worried about that (as to me most games you steer on the left and fire on the right), i was told that you can reverse the position of the buttons so if thats the case its great. I think for promo pictures they should have put the buttons on the right though.

But either way i'll be getting this later

Definitely. IAPs is what I thought was one of the things that kinda ruined Arc Squadron, plus it's mediocre gameplay didn't help. This game looks awesome though, definitely a first day purchase for me. I'm a big supporter of no IAP games, practically the only games I play nowadays

ICade support?

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.
