Late last month, Big Head Games released iPhone cave-flyer Retro through the iTunes App Store.  Retro debuted at $4.99 but has since dropped in price to 2.99 [link].

For those that want to try before they by, BHG has since released Retro LITE [App Store], a free version of Retro that features the full game's first three levels, playable in both Normal and Hard difficulty modes.

True to the traditions of classic Sci-fi, Retro is set in the near future, our experiments to harvest the Sun´s energy is about to send it supernova, your mission is to rescue scientists stranded on orbiting planets. Retro takes you...deep below the surface of orbiting planets, the super smooth control system allows you to tilt the iPhone to turn the craft, tapping the screen to apply thrust, gliding through the tightest caves to find stranded scientists, keeping one eye on the fuel and shield and the other on the rocky outcrops.

We reviewed Retro shortly after its release and found it to be the App Store's best cave-flyer and an excellent iPhone game in general.  Now there's no excuse not to give it a try.

    Yay, hopefully it will be like monkey lander but with better physics. A few Lite versions out today, toy tanks 3d has one also!
