Stroid - A Retro-Synth Shooter For iPhone

Hi there,

I'm Matt Sawrey and Stroid is my first game, soon to be released for iPhone. Check out the trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHjSj053WYw

Stroid is a retro-synth space shooter about destroying hazards from the outer orbits of increasingly alien planets. There are asteroids, bubbles and shattering crystals to contend with, and destroying these nets you ore, which is required to purchase upgrades and power-ups, allowing you to progress further!

Some key points:

*Hypnotic, colourful visuals and an infectious synth soundtrack
*Simple tilt and tap controls
*Five planets that go well out of this solar system with six orbits around each
*One of them is called Jeff!
*Three Stroid variants to unlock and upgrade alongside three thunderous power ups





The game has just been approved for the iOS App Store and it will be out 15th December for 1.49.

Any thoughts of feedback would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks,
Matt
