Armoured Shift: A New Tilt-Controlled Shooter

App Title: Armoured Shift
Developer: Orbital Worlds
Price: $0.99
Status: Submitted for review
Website: www.armouredshift.com



Armoured Shift is a fast-paced, open-world space shooter for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Created by newly formed independent development studio Orbital Worlds, Armoured Shift takes its cues from a variety of beloved top-down shooters, such as Asteroids, Subspace, and even Ikaruga.

Armoured Shift doesn’t take the well-beaten ‘dual-analog’ path like so many shooters on the platform – instead, it takes advantage of the iPhone’s accelerometer with a fine-tuned, intuitive motion control system.

I love all of the painful Sci-Fi hinted references complete with a certain star's blueprints in the background of the last shot!

I just clicked on this because there was Shift in the name and Armoured, which reminded me of NFS: Shift and Armoured Core :P
Sorry, but I dislike that genre.
