Under the Radar 2014


While Touch Arcade is in my opinion the premier source of information for new game releases, I am curious to see what games I might have missed out on because they did not obtain any coverage on the TA main site.

Please share your favorite Under the Radar games for 2014.

Here's one from me to start us off:

It is a fairly straightforward follow-up to the original endless vertical shooter. Both games are excellent

Yes Retr0; a great start indeed. This game is in my 'honourable mentions' of 2014 and it's a shame that the developer has no plans to develop for iOS in the future, due in part to how poorly this game sold.

Space Strafer is a hidden gem! http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...=space+strafer

Game Center: sink_or_swim

Spaceman Dave for me. All it lacked was game center but I loved that game for a week or so in 2014.

I dont think Level 22 got the attention it deserves, and it's currently free now, i highly recommend checking it out.

SimplePlanes from Jundroo is absolutely amazing if you like physics sandbox. One of their earlier games (pre 2014)SimpleRockets is also amazing, a 2D Kerbal Space Programme.

Also Stradale Racing Simulator from Laminar Research has eaten up hours of my free time this year but also went largely under the radar I think.

A game I really liked was COSMO&PUPPY, with an interesting mechanic.
