  • Summary: Guide Flip as he tries to escape a stellar shockwave after the successful rescue of AMI at the end of The Last Rocket! Brake to dodge asteroids, fill your star meter to warp, and earn gems for upgrades to cover greater distances. Can you outrun the sun?Touch to brake and dodge incoming asteroids but don’t delay for too long or the stellar shockwave will overtake Flip! Pluck mini-stars from their asteroid orbit to earn temporary invincibility and jump to warp. Then tap like crazy to extend the warp’s duration!KNOWN ISSUES- Languages that use a decimal point as the thousands separate may see a 0 instead of a decimal point in some parts of the UI but not others. (eg. "1.400" will display as "10400") FIXED IN 1.0.1 Expand

    The graphics and music are also excellent, and really hit home for someone that grew up with the retro classics.

    The player has so much more control in Super Crate Box than they do in Flip's Escape, and that's why I think that game works better with the same concept.

    Sure, the controls may not be as approachable as its predecessor, and the game may be a bit simplistic for even an endless runner these days, but the implementation is solid, and the look and feel is a perfect carry-over from The Last Rocket.

    Like the conventions it bucks, this one escapes the faux pas of a potentially poor start, and gets exponentially better each time you play.

    Fans of The Last Rocket will no doubt welcome the chance to continue their travels, but it's a tough sell for those who have come to expect a little more from their runners. Still, it would be churlish not to acknowledge that this is at least something different in a stale genre.

    It's good to see Inman opting for something other than a straight sequel, but this is one space odyssey that won't last you much longer than a pleasant hour or so.

    A simple arcade throwback that is quite punishing, though exudes a certain charm all the same.
