App description: Part Spider, Part Velociraptor, it's Velocispider!!! Take control of a heavily armed araknasaur in this retro arcade shoot-em-up.

Your delicious endangered eggs have attracted the taste buds of the evil CEO of the Robot Seafood Corporation. He will stop at nothing to feast on your eggs, defend them from his relentless army of aquatic robot beasts.

IGN: "The best dinosaur spider cyborg game ever created."

Touch Arcade: "Velocispider is a ton of fun. The game is gorgeous, in a pixel art and chiptune sort of way. The art is full of character, and that character is super ridiculous. I can't decide if I love the drop sharks (manta rays?) or the bomber whales more."

Games Radar: "It's a simple arcade-like shooter, but Velocispider's sharp aesthetics and approachable play mechanics make for a stellar iOS experience that's an easy recommendation on both iPad and iPhone."

In your arsenal:-
Awesome power ups
Game Center leaderboards
Sweet pixel art
Thumping tunes
Smooth tilt controls
Game Center achievements
Retina & Universal app support

I typically prefer touch controls over tilt. Still though, sold on the graphics alone. That, and it looks like a really excellent take on the SpaceInvaders/Galaga style gameplay.

Not a bug fan of the gameplay, but first sseeing the graphics was a seller for me anyways. Hope they later add touch controls in as an update.

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!

I totally missed the tilt controls at first 'cause I was so wrapped up in the graphics and the soundtrack. Lack of touch controls notwithstanding, this is right up my alley!
