    Hi everyone!

    Starfighter Neon is a small, fun, re-playable arcade style space shooter where the goal is to beat your best scores (and your friends), unlocking extra ships as you go.

    It doesn't have an epic settings, huge boss battles or an emotional story line.
    It does have bite size sessions of laser blasting, alien dodging, space ship action!
    It isn't / won't be free!*

    You've been dropped into enemy space. Weave your Starfighter between alien spaceships, lasers, asteroids and bombs destroying as many as you can and collecting valuable coins and powerups as you go.



    It's coming out initially on Steam (PC/OSX) on 18th December, and there should be an iOS version available shortly after.


    *Not free?? Yes, that's right. It's a small game. It'll be cheap. very cheap, but not free. However, it'll have all the content (now and future) included, there will be no adverts and no iaps. I know, craaaazzzzy! :eek:

    Nice :) Can I request Apple TV and MFi controller compatibility?

    Hi,
    There likely won't be in the original release (I'm pretty much out of time this side of Xmas), but it's certainly something I can look at adding. It's got full controller support on Steam, so the MFi should be fairly simple I hope. I don't have an Apple TV - but I'll investigate that too.

    Ok, so MFi controls seem to work (I've only got an old prototype controller, but menus and ship controls fine).
    Even though I don't have an Apple TV, I've managed to get a build put together and waiting for the TestFlight review - it's usually only a day or so.
    :)

    Premium model might work better for your game, like the "Plasma Sky". Wish you the best.

    Thanks! - and I hope so. TBH if it makes a single sale, it'll have done better than a lot of my other projects! Good thing I'm not here for the money...
    Also - I checked out Plasma Sky, that game looks great, very nicely done.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm back after little holiday, and work on iOS Starfighter Neon is going well.

    If there is anyone out there who would be interested in testing either the iOS or AppleTV version, let me know an email address to invite and which platform.

    Thanks,

    mikey.

    Hi everyone!
    Thanks for the fantastic response.
    I've sent out Apple TV invites for those that asked, iOS invites should be going out soon - the latest build is just waiting for Apple's Testflight review, which usually only takes about a day.

    Thanks again everyone, I've had some really useful feedback from the first round of testing - so I'll see if I can resolve a few of those issues and get a new build available for testing shortly. Anyone who hasn't had an invite yet should get one for that round.

    Thanks again to you all, the support for this little game has been amazing so far.

    Totally appreciated!
