Starsceptre – Infinite chances to save the Galaxy
Exclusive debut only on iPhone & iPad!
Starsceptre is a classic retro shoot ’em up with a twist. Its power lies in a unique gyroscopic tilting control system, creating a new genre of games we call “Tilt 'n' shoot-em-up” (#tiltnshmup). Instead of using on-screen joysticks, you’ll use your body to steer your spaceship, tilting and shooting your way through the levels in a game that’ll push your piloting skills to the extreme.
Looking like one of those 8bit or 16 bit pixel games you loved as a kid, you'll relive 80s & 90s arcade memories on the go via your iPhone or iPad. And like all the classics, this game is easy to play, but difficult to master.
From high speed dodging to pixel-precise control, your nerves and reactions will be tested to their limits. And what arcade game is complete without repeatedly hammering the fire button? Tap the screen to shoot anyway you like – double handed, strumming fingers, one handed – it’s up to you!
The Starsceptre itself is a legend that only the few still believe in… but in the wrong hands its power is truly terrifying. It grants the wielder the power to right wrongs, bending time so you can try to complete the game again and again without ever dying.
For centuries the Draxses have conquered planets, stripping them of precious resources and enslaving their occupants, but now a new weapon has made them virtually unstoppable. Only the Starsceptre has the power to stop the Draxses. And they want it!
Playing as Ensign Rook, you awake suddenly in the cockpit of your Starfighter to find your short-term memory missing as you float amongst the shattered halves of your home planet.
Accompanied only by Onalee, a mysterious stowaway on your ship who wields the Starsceptre, you must battle your way to defeating the Draxses.
Can you stop other planets from suffering the same fate?
Excellent old school shooter!
A true throwback to 90's era space shooters, this game is a real challenge with some fantastic visuals (even featuring a full fledged story with voice acted cutscenes!). Gameplay uses your iOS as a control panel where your tilting to steer and tapping to shoot. An excellent arsenal of power ups even the odds against some very tough bosses. Really nice effort here and absolutely recommended.
Reminiscent of the Turbografx CD
I waited a while for this to release and it certainly didn't disappoint. Quality graphics, music and gameplay. A bit challenging, but just the right amount of frustration. It keeps you coming back for more.
This game blows
...me away every time I play it. Took me a bit to get used to the tilt to move feature but I prefer over the visual joystick type. Looking forward to passing level 1 someday.
