Lastronaut - Action-packed 8-bit iOS game

Hi Touch Arcade!

Just wanted to share my upcoming iOS game Lastronaut! I am the Lead Mobile Designer at Firefox (Mozilla) and I have been working on this game with a friend for 2 years. We're from Toronto, Canada and grew up playing video games on the NES ans SNES... and have always dreamed of giving something back to the industry I loved. This is my love-letter to gaming, and will be free, forever. And when I say free, i mean FREE. No ads, no in-app purchases, no nothing just you and the game



"The year is 2015: Mankind has created it's first sentient machine: a humanoid robot. If we only knew what would happen next, we probably could have saved ourselves. Now, were abandoning the only planet weve ever known."

Lastronaut is a pixel-packed, adrenaline-fueled dash for your life as you run, jump, dodge and fire your way through the machine army, equipped with an arsenal of human and robotic weapons to cause mayhem with. At dawn, as the rest of humanity lifts off in the distance, its your mission to reach the last rocket ship leaving Earth. Your life depends on it.



Price: Free

Trailer:



What to expect from Lastronaut:

- Infinite gameplay, providing hours of increasing challenge
- A multitude of weapons
- Beautiful, hand-crafted artwork and animation & original music
- Chaotic action, slow-mo effects, explosions, and more explosions
- Local gameplay stats: distance travelled, total kills, and more!
- Global leaderboards and world ranking through Game Center
- Plenty of achievements to find!
- Save and share your final moments to Facebook or Twitter


Thanks for checking it out, and follow http://twitter.com/darrinhenein for details and our release date announcement!

Thanks,
Darrin

If it plays half as good as it looks, my only disappointment would be not being able to support you a bit, but your glorious intention is very appreciated, thanks. Looking very forward to the release on the __.__.2015 ?

Thank you so much Qwertz555! Right now, assuming everything works out, we are hoping for a March 5, 2015 release. I will update this thread when we confirm.

Maybe I will add a donate button to lastronautgame.com? I never imagined people would want to support us
