Zach Gage's Bit Pilot has gone free for today. The retro-inspired dodging game stands on its own with fast paced gameplay, well implemented touch controls and a great 8-bit soundtrack. The game allows you to control a small ship in an asteroid field using single or dual swipes. Use one thumb for smaller movements, or both for more rapid movements. All the while, your job is to dodge the asteroids and lasers while picking up bonuses.


The swipe/touch controls are very nicely done and responsive. This is game we enjoyed on its release, and should be picked up while it's free.

    I really hope there's an option to use tilt controls instead of swipes.
    I decimate my friends high scores mainly because they're all accelerometer-based games. >=D

    This is a really great game that deserved higher sales then it got. I hope giving it away for free for a period of time gives this game the attention it deserves. It's a very addicting game with awesome music.

    Awesome game. Downloaded, played, rated 5.

    The soundtrack is just SICK.

    Glad now a lot more people will get a chance to try the game, which i always thought needed more attention.

    The music is great, and the controls are precise (but not easy). Most crap-scores come from tilt-to-live users who expected tilt controls and can't spend some minutes with the new controls, lame.

    Absolutely Excellent in my Book. The music really makes the game, keeps it intense all the way through.
