IronStar Arena Now Supports iCade

Hi everybody!

We just released our latest iOS Arcade Game IronStar Arena:

Find out more Here

Test your Star Fighter instincts for “fight AND flight” against enemy flyers and automated drones in this arcade-style battle arena. Defeat your enemy by destroying all of their back-up fuel cells, or by breaking down their shields and destroying the enemy ship itself. Use an arsenal of weapons and strategies that include missile and shell fire, destroying the automated drones or using them to your advantage against the enemy, reloading from your ammunition depot or repairing your shields at your repair station when strategically necessary, and more!

Choose to play solo against an automated enemy flyer, head to head against another player, or over the network against unknown enemies. Play through all eight groups of four levels each for achievements, leader boards, bragging rights, or for the old arcade experience and just plain fun.

IronStar Arena Now Supports iCade

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to drop a quick note and say that we have just released a new version of our IronStar Arena game that has full support for the Ion Audio iCade Arcade Controller.

The iCade is a great product, very well built and if you were an "arcade kid" like me in the 80's... a must have!

You can find out more about IronStar Arena on our website.

Please let me know if there are any questions, I'd be happy to answer them!

Looks awesome. I would buy an icade if I could find a store that carried them, as I really don't want to order one online.

Awesome! Thanks for adding iCade support! ^_^

Would like to see video of the game. I have an iCade, and might buy your game later. Also, you should post about Ironstar Arena in the iCade thread in the General Gaming forum.

EDIT: OK, I posted about it myself. See the thread here:

I just received my iCade today, and based on this and the arcade thread, I decided to give this game a go. I regret that! It doesn't work! Crashes immediately. I'm guessing it's not compatble with iOS 5.01...

iOS 5 have been out a while now, and developers had betas to work with prior to that, it really shouldn't be a problem!

Any chance for an update to remedy this issue, or should I just ask for a refund right away?
