App description: Blast Off is an interstellar arcade game featuring gravity fields, lost astronauts and bizarre planetary systems.

Use your rocket ship to rescue astronauts and carry them through the warpgate to safety.

But be careful! The ever-present force of gravity can help you on your journey, but can also bring you crashing down.

Each planet and celestial body within a level has a gravity effect which must be accounted for. This gravity must be used to the players advantage in combination with rocket boost power and directional control.

Various hazards must be avoided, and if the ship crashes into an object the mission fails.

- 45 missions across four difficulty settings.

- Planets and Asteroids will have gravity and attract the ship, allowing players to float around the level.

- Black Holes will attract the ship with even more ferocity.

- White Holes have a reverse gravity field, pushing the ship away.

- Mission success is ranked on several factors: remaining fuel, remaining air, astronauts collected.

- Awarded Silver, Gold or Brick medals based on final mission outcome.

Good luck and Blast Off!

Got this on PSP and it's very good. Shame they haven't added global leaderboards on this though.

Never played it on PSP, but I must say it looks like a blast (pun intended), and quite polished.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

Someone who played it right now on the iPhone might answer this?

a) tilt for rocket angle? (I really hope that )
b) tap anywhere on screen (Obviously menu buttons excluded) for boost?

That does look fun. I hope they add OpenFeint before it's released here, though.

Same for me. I remember wanting this game but I sold off my PSP when I picked up a touch.
