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.
