Max Vector : Resolution - New 8 Bit Shooter for iPhone!

Hi there,

I'm new in these parts and thought I'd take a break from my mundane schedule to show you a clip from a pre-release version of my retro inspired shmup "Max Vector : Resolution". Max will be hitting the App Store shortly ;-)

Thanks for that

My first attempt at an iPhone game so I went simple. Plays really well though and I thought it was the perfect thing to do, being such a retro fan!

The game is loaded with power ups, epic boss battles, sprite scaling and rotation (which isn't THAT retro - lol).

Now I just need to polish it up a little, add the scoring system and submit!
