Looks retro, I like it.

What are the other features? Online leaderboards? Achievements? Multiplayer? How many levels?

Thanks for the welcome!

The shooting in the game is entirely gesture based, so your character's shots fire in the direction of your finger swipes. There are two types of shots - power shots, which are slow and quick shots which are fast. Power shots will destroy quick shots, but quick shots travel faster.

In addition you can deflect your opponent's shots via a parry system.

You can also use your character's special abilities.

In addition to the different special abilities, each character has different stats: speed, power, and armor and feels distinctly different.

Check out the Pocket Gamer preview for more info on the game:

Facebook connect leaderboards and updates, unlockable characters via completing the game on various difficulty levels. Three difficulty levels (easy, medium, and hard) with supreme difficulty level unlockable upon completing the game on hard. Multiplayer mode is available on the same device.

Thanks the_ref. We are still not fully decided on the price point. We were thinking either $2.99 or $3.99. We are planning to support the game post release with content updates.

I think I might get this when it comes out- it reminds me of a game I used to play.

great, cheers. Though you'd better get your skates on if you want it in the app store by Christmas.
