Our sincerely apologizes for the long wait, but this time I can be 100% sure to say that the wait is almost over. All the development work has been done and we are doing the final testing. We'll submit the final build to Apple very soon!

There are 6 missions + a final battle in the full version of Super Laser and here are 2 screenshots from mission 3:





An additional player ship is added too:





You'll be amazed by the unique end of level bosses for each mission!

Hi Everyone!

It's time for some retro fun again!

iFighter was a big hit for us last year. We tried to do a different kind of game after that and we made Stone Wars for a change. But all of us are big fans of shoot'em-ups so we return to this genre once again for another new title: Super Laser!

The story:
----------
In Year 2036, the Earth's population has reduced to only 1.5 billions due to resources shortage and global climate warming. The bizarre climate is somehow suitable for the aliens to move in. These aliens can attach to any organizm or machinery to evolve into new forms of life. The Earth has unfortunately become their second home. The human beings must act fast to destroy the aliens before they conquer the whole world. The Earth Alliance secretly sends a fighter equipped with the ultimate and most advanced weapon, called "Super Laser", to the aliens' stronghold...

Features:
---------
- 6 huge missions + the final battle
- 3 difficulties
- many different enemy types and devilish big bosses
- control options: motion, joypad or touch
- state of the art graphics
- original background music
- Plus+ integration

Some screenshots:
------------------







We'll probably submit the game at the end of March. Comments and critiques are very welcome!


Thanks,

James

wi-fi cooperate mode is very interesting, can the 2 ships connect together to make powrful attack, like Twinbee?

This definitely reminds me of flying tigers / radiant silvergun.

That is a very good thing.

Best of luck!

2-3 weeks? That's exact copy of the statement in the OP.
Nevermind, take your time. I'd rather the game was perfect when it comes out.
Thanks for the update.
