Space Laser Race (Universal) Made by a 13 year old! [Now FREE]



Space Laser Race™, the first-ever space simulator game developed by a 13-year-old, will be available this Thursday, 11/11/10 for $.99, on the App Store. The young developer is dedicating a portion of his proceeds from the sales of his game to food allergy research.

Ever wish you could spacewalk like an astronaut, with only a jet pack to propel you in zero gravity? Now you can, virtually. In this unique and challenging game, you race through space while racing against time to align your laser onto a target. Dual sliders simulate double joysticks astronauts use to maneuver through space. A radar at the top of the screen provides directional point of reference.

Space Laser Race™, a universal game which operates on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, offers two modes, Timed and Survival, each with three difficulty levels. It also has high resolution graphics for the Retina Display on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4. Plus, when run on iPad, an extra split-screen multiplayer mode allows two players to compete to see who will be the fastest to race to each target. Space Laser Race™ is OpenFeint-enabled with 6 leaderboards and 36 achievements.

Millions of children and adults around the world suffer from potentially life-threatening food allergies, including the 13 year old developer of Space Laser Race™. His motivation for creating the game was to help find a way to prevent or cure food allergies.

Also, an update is coming soon to fix a few issues regarding OpenFeint orientation on startup. Just rotate the device to portrait, upside down portrait, or landscape with the home button on the left to fix the problem.

Sorry for the triple post, but I just wanted to let iPad-only users who don't check the iPhone price drop forum that Space Laser Race is now free w/ads! A significant portion of the revenue from the iAds will still be donated to food allergy research, so download away!

An in-app purchase to remove ads is coming soon.
If you bought Space Laser Race for $.99 before it became free, you don't have ads.

Please offer feedback and suggestions for future updates! (I'm already working on bluetooth and online multiplayer + more achievements to come with them)
