Solar Blaster is basically a simplistic on-rails, galactic 3D shooting gallery. The player controls a mother-ship armed with three different weapons: machine guns, laser beams, and photon torpedoes. The goal is simple: destroy the advancing onslaught of alien enemies (which happen to bare a striking resemblance to Death Stars and Borg cubes...). Targeting is handled via accelerometer and the trick is to switch to the next weapon before the current one overheats and becomes ineffective. It's a rather simple game but does provide mild amusement when one is in the mood for a little target practice.
Adding gameplay incentive is an integrated, online scoreboard that keeps track of who are the true interstellar marksmen.
Solar Blaster is available as a $0.99 download through the App Store [link].
