Retron X Out Now - retro-inspired iPhone game

Hello everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know that my second game "Retron X" has recently been approved.

Retron is a game inspired by the 8bit experience of our youth, with a simple game mechanic designed for touch devices. It features some fantastic 8bit tracks from "8Bit Weapon" which really supplement the games style.

More details are here : http://retrongame.com/ (video coming soon)

I would really like to hand out some free promo-codes for the game and hear peoples thoughts and opinions - I'm here to learn and better myself as a game designer and developer!

If you'd like to play the game, I'm more than happy to forgo the $1 to hear your thoughts!

Thanks,

Rob

Looks interesting, but I really have no idea what the game is about, or how you go about "saving humanity", as your website says!

Is saving humanity not reason enough!?

I'll be completing the promotional video this evening, but you can see the gameplay here : http://www.youtube.com/user/indiespring

You're right though, I'll get some more prose into the website and app description to actually explain gameplay!

Thanks,

Rob

Hey Rob,

I'd love to try it out and would be willing to leave feedback and/or a review on iTunes.

Are you posting any promos?
