What’s New

Version 1.0.2

Minor bug fixes. Also, the size of many spaceships has been reduced, allowing them to be more playable in tight spaces and hopefully easier to play the levels overall.

Quite an addictive game!

I got the chance to try this out at PlayNYC and knew I needed to download it. The premise is simple enough; an infinite runner with you flying a space ship. Think of it like Flappy Bird, but with an actual goal. Divvied up between 55 ships (skins which you buy with coin acquired in level) and the different levels (which you unlock by clearing doing and distance objectives in previous ones), you actually feel the need to come back again or play another round.

Superb design and graphics

This game impressed me with graphics, design and so many interesting levels just love there are 55 unique ships to choose from and earn through levels. It keeps track of all the game stats you can think of. It’s addicting and challenging. If it was book, it would be a “page turner”. A must buy at a super great price. Definitely a steal considering the visuals..almost 3D.

Fun and very captivating!!!

This side scroller has great graphics and music. Love the backgrounds and unlocking new ships is a great feature as you accumulate coins. Gameplay is simple and excellent after adjusting the bounce sensitivity and drop rate to your personal preference. Once you find your rhythm, you’ll be hooked to beat your personal best. Highly recommend!
