App description: Starsceptre Infinite chances to save the Galaxy

Exclusive debut only on iPhone & iPad!

"App of the week" - ApfelPage

"4 out of 5 - Starsceptre is a really cool retro game that will entertain you for several hours, and offers high replay-value"

Game trailer: https://youtu.be/DtDvO7CZcHk

With newly redesigned controls, Starsceptre is a pixelated retro shoot em up using touch to shoot your way through the game, testing your nerves and reactions to their limits.

As the pilot, you awake suddenly in the cockpit of your Starfighter to find your short-term memory missing and your planet shattered into two halves.

Accompanied by a mysterious stowaway who wields the Starsceptre - a magical device that rewinds time - you must battle your way to defeating the evil Draxses.

Can you stop other planets from suffering the same fate?

Looking like one of those 8bit or 16 bit pixel games you loved as a kid, you'll relive 80s & 90s arcade memories on the go via your iPhone or iPad. And like all the classics, this game is easy to play, but difficult to master.

Tilt only? If yes, it's a no go for me.

I'll just leave this here...

I'm biased (I know) but having spent time building the tilt system to work the best it can, I thought I'd share this little video I made showing how it really plays. By the way it is hard at first, but then like all new things, learning a new skill becomes rewarding. Anyway I talk too much, check out the video:

Well, I like the look of the tilt control. Sorry to say I don't like the look of the constant thumb mashing. I realise it's authentic but I need auto-fire these days.

I saw this mentioned on Twitter. What's really cool about this game is that it was developed on an iPad using Codea by a guy who had a long daily train ride to work. This is the future I want to live in.
