    But creator Zach Gage is clearly some kind of evil genius, because no sooner had we weaned ourself off his furiously addictive game than he laughed like a maniac and presented this update, which boasts Retina graphics, universal support and two new modes.

    Bit Pilot's simple graphics belie the atrocious challenge at hand.

    The intensity of the game may not be for everyone, and the relatively small amount of content may annoy some, but for me I can think of few better ways to spend a dollar.

    While Bit Pilot, at face value, may not seem to have much to offer, the exact opposite is true; it's a deceptively-intense game with a lot of personality, fluid controls and a thought-provoking soundtrack.

    Bit Pilot uses its simplicity as an asset to create a surprisingly addictive twitch-reaction experience, and the music will make anyone nostalgic for the 8-bit era smile.

    An amusing, bite-sized piece of gaming that pairs classic arcade action with unpretentious style.

    This retro take on the bullet hell genre might be hard to get the hang of, but it will keep you coming back for more.
