Starsceptre – Infinite chances to save the Galaxy

Exclusive debut only on iPhone & iPad!

"App of the week" - ApfelPage

"4 out of 5 - Starsceptre is a really cool retro game that will entertain you for several hours, and offers high replay-value"

Game trailer:

With newly redesigned controls, Starsceptre is a pixelated retro shoot ’em up using touch to shoot your way through the game, testing your nerves and reactions to their limits.

As the pilot, you awake suddenly in the cockpit of your Starfighter to find your short-term memory missing and your planet shattered into two halves.

Accompanied by a mysterious stowaway who wields the Starsceptre - a magical device that rewinds time - you must battle your way to defeating the evil Draxses.

Can you stop other planets from suffering the same fate?

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.

Why 5 Stars?

From the art style to the gameplay this game screams of a fun and premium experience. The developer also listens to his players and there are options to play the game using cool tilt controls OR a really nicely done on screen joystick. There are options for pretty much every aspect of gameplay so you can set it up how you'd like to play. The gameplay itself is intense and gives you that Arcade, one more go, feel to it. It's a shmup but it's not your average one. Your co pilot has a sceptre that can turn back time when you get blown up lol. You can do loops to get out of bad situations. There are so many different power ups as well. It's just a really fun experience. It is absolutely worth its price. Thank you dev for a fun game and for a premium experience. We need to support devs like this who choose not to go the freemium route.

I love this game!

StarSceptre is beautiful. The storyline is great and clearly explains the existence of infinite lives. The characters remind me of Robotech; the protagonist harkens back to Rick Hunter and though the female lead looks more like Ling Ming-mei, she is more like Lisa Hayes. The controls are smooth and perfectly adapted to touch and tilt. Finally the developer is approachable and responsive. StarSceptre is a wonderful experience, you’ll not be disappointed.

Amazing game

(Highest control sensitivity seems to have issues on iphone6)

Should have realized this sooner but better late than never, set sensitivity back to medium and all is good. As for the game, it’s possibly the best shoot ‘em up ever and by FAR the best iOS game available.

IMO the only other shmup that’s slightly better is the sadly unavailable Shogun: Rise of the Renegade.
