Featured on the App Store as New and Noteworthy! #4 Simmulation Game in the App Store.

Fast, Furious, Massive Space Combat for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch in 3D! Universal app, with high-rez graphics optimized for iPad and iPhone4's retina display.

What do people who've played it have to say about Battle for Vesta?

MacWorld says, "the graphics are buttery smooth... the controls are simple and intuitive... Battle for Vesta offers up solid space combat"

Players say:

"This is just a sweet little space shooter with an early 80's retro feel. I really got sucked into the game to the pont that I could hear John Williams playing behind me and Artoo chirping in my ear."

"Pure, unadulterated retro goodness! Imagine Asteroids. Now imagine Asteroids with enemmies. Now imagine Asteroids with enemies in 3-D. If that doesn't sound appealing to you (fool!) then Battle for Vesta may not be for you."

"What sets Battle for Vesta apart is how it adds depth to an otherwise familiar shooter game because of its control scheme... you hurtle into space and literally face the asteroids and ships floating in the galaxy."


Battle for Vesta is a fully 3D space combat simulator set in an asteroid field. If you want a sci-fi adventure in your pocket that boots fast and let's you get right to playing, Battle for Vesta is for you.

The game features:
- Fast, retro cool 3D graphics
- Intuitive, accurate touch controls
- 3D sound effects and iPod playthrough (listen to your own music)
- Two gameplay modes: Story and Survival
- Automatic saved games in Story Mode
- Story Mode has 19 levels that never play the same twice
- Three difficulty levels: Easy, Medium, Hard
- Realistic AI for enemies and your wingmen
- Universal app
- Retina Display ready
- Resume where you left off from short interruptions

Battle for Vesta is unlike any other space shooter on the iPhone. It puts you in the cockpit of a starfighter to combat fleets of enemies alongside your wingmen. Lead your ships into massive battles in which your skills will determine the outcome!

I bought this eons ago...

And it really isn't that great. It gets somewhat confusing as to where you are, and lack of planets makes it even worse. This is just a simple space shooter, but I give the debs kudos for the wingmen. I hate how almost no games have AI teammates these days.

BEWARE: freeappaday website

I am amazed that FAAD (freeappaday) would openly solicit good reviews for this developer and its game on it's comments page. The moderator will frequently post and repost the same message asking for users to give this app a good review.

"The better ratings we give them the better apps we get" -FAAD

Reviews should be given honestly and according to your personal experience with the application. Giving a disingenuous review does not guarantee better games. It only gives the developer the illusion that what they have created (good or bad) is what the public wants in future titles.

Shame on FAAD for even suggesting such a thing. I find this sort of behavior off-putting and It only tarnishes the legitimacy of the gaming press, it's websites, and it's reviews.

I tried posting my opinion on the matter in the FAAD comments page but was routinely deleted by the moderator. Apparently they have strict rules on what opinions you are allowed to post and will delete anything that falls outside those set guidelines. Perhaps they should just type out the comments for us and just submit them in our name.

P.S. Interesting game. I like it.
