    "Star Drift
    Shoot stuff... Collect things... Keep Your Weapons Primed... Don’t crash... Stay Alive!

    Star Drift is a procedurally generated, endless-space-gunner. It's super easy to pickup and play; just touch anywhere on screen to move up, release to drop down. Your weapons will take care of themselves.

    Blast your way through as many waves as you can survive. Adventure through dangerous space caves. Grab power-ups and choose upgrades wisely.

    Listen to your onboard AI's soothing guidance and enjoy the atmospheric sci-fi music by renowned composer, David Wise.

    Full bragging rights are up for grabs; Game Center integration means you can compete against your friends and challenge them to match your achievements.

    Can you beat the Anomaly?

    Coming to the App Store early 2015."

    Welcome back DT!!! Thanks for the post! Speaking of things I haven't seen in a while, the game has a Pew Pew/Geometry Wars old school vibe to it that you know I dig! Looking forward to it.

    Hello!

    Thanks for taking an interest in the game! :)

    I guess DT already posted the marketing blurb, so I’ll just add a short video of the pre-release build…



    Please fire away if you have any questions.

    Cheers,

    Rhys

    Star Drift Screenshots

    Thanks, I hope you enjoy it! :)

    Here are some pre-release screenshots from the iPad build...

    Larva are the bread-n-butter enemies. This shot is taken very early in the game when things are relatively easy going.

    The score multiplier is being maxed-out as the player destroys a mine.

    ss7.jpg
    A tricky bit of space cave.... lots of credits to be scooped up.

    ss6.jpg
    Some explosive action as the player chases a Pede through a mine-field.
