John doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

Throughly enjoyable space shooter.

I purchased Star Horizon to escape the seemingly endless and overwhelmingly boring pay to win games that offer nothing for gamers and act only as a profit generating business models.
Star Horizon has no in app purchasing and reminds me of Lylat Wars 64 which is a great thing for nostalgic reasons.

The graphics in this game are very satisfying and the general feel of immersion from the quality sounds when using headphones is a major positive. My only annoyance with this game is the slightly cheesy talk between pilot and A.I and feel this could be improved with a slightly more serious tone.

Highly recommended space shooter 8/10


Great now on iPad Pro

(Edit) Now working properly on the new iPad Pro, it looks great and plays well.
Nice game reminiscent of starblade.

Sorry but it's really boring

I hate to be harsh, as I can see a lot of time went into making this, but the fact is it's so dull and repetitive with no sense of any challenge. I gave it 3 try's with a few days in between. Each time I went back I was more disappointed by how tedious and lame the whole thing was. Sorry guys, but it's a delete. You get one point for nice art, but there has to a game under there somewhere and sadly there is not, or not a fun one anyway. As others have suggested, if you haven't played it yet, Galaxy on Fire is the real deal - get that instead. This doesn't even come close, sorry.
