App description: Ever wish you could travel through space like an astronaut, with only a jet pack to propel you in zero gravity? Now you can, virtually. From an astronauts perspective, race against time to align a moving red laser onto a green target on different components of a space station. A radar at the top of the screen provides directional point of reference. Dual sliders simulate double joysticks astronauts use to maneuver through space.

Space Laser Race, a universal game, offers two modes, Timed and Survival, each with three difficulty levels. Plus, when run on iPad, there is an extra split screen multiplayer mode, so two players can compete to see who will be the fastest to reach each target. See if you can conquer the challenges of zero gravity and climb the worldwide leaderboards, and earn as many achievements as possible, in this unique and exciting space simulator game.

Believe it or not, Space Laser Race was developed by a 13 year old, eighth grade boy. Perhaps it will inspire you to create your own app!

Space Laser Race is:
OpenFeint enabled.
Kiip enabled! Win real rewards just for playing Space Laser Race!

Thanks okemo and Baronic!
@Baronic: You never know whether or not you will like the game, it's hard to describe and you can only tell how fun it is once you've played it. (But it's relatively difficult at first, so you may not like it)

Now available worldwide! http://rfly.me/slrlink
Keep in mind that Game Center and Bluetooth multiplayer for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are planned for updates coming soon!

I actually really like this game, its addicting and has some nice features to it. Its got 6 different ways to play, and its actually pretty challenging one you give it a fair shake. its nice, since its a smaller game, that there's leaderboards, and it keeps me trying to get higher and higher, before the crowds come and hack the leaderboards. The graphics aren't fantastic, but with the quality of the iPhone games recently, this game is near the top.
The only suggestions I have, is a possible graphical boost, and maybe a joystick, but that might make the game to easy.
I give it a 4/5, and a Buy Rating

Space Laser Race is now free on the App Store! Despite having added iAds, previous buyers do not have them and they are the new revenue stream for donations to food allergy research.
An update to add an in-app purchase to remove ads should be finished soon with content updates coming afterwards. Bluetooth competitive and co-op multiplayer (based on a new mode) are my focuses, followed by full-blown online multiplayer.
