FREE THIS WEEKEND ONLY! IT'S THE @HODAPP BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!
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."

So much fun and I love the retro sound effects and graphics!
It took me a few minutes to get used to the tilt style of playing. A slide option would be nice, although I rather enjoyed not having to tap my way through a game. :)
A simple, fun space invaders-esque type of game. The pixel art looks great and the sounds are all good too. Tilt controls don't fit well in this type of game. It'd be so much better if there were some kind of onscreen controller, like Galaxloid, a similar app. It lets you be much more precise in movement.
An outstanding game. A throw back to early 80's. Great game play and simple and accurate game controls. Has been a favorite game for years. Would love to see a new version!
