    RETRO is a glorious homage and throwback to latter-day game design and gameplay, utilizing the iPhone and iPod Touch's accelerometer and touchscreen in this Lunar Lander style adventure through rocky maze-like landscapes.

    Game Features:

    - Beautifully rendered artwork and animation.
    - Superb mood-setting soundtrack from Space Maneouvres
    - Simultaeneous Music + Sound Effects options.
    - Fluid physics
    - Intuitive gameplay
    - Carefully tweaked accelerometer controls
    - Gradual difficulty curve, tested by monkeys*

    Instructions:

    Dead simple...
    - Tilt iPhone/iPod Touch gently to navigate
    - Tap the screen to accelerate (thrust)
    - Refuel at vertical Fuel Pods (see the screenshot)
    - Save all the little guys!

    REVIEWS:

    "Retro is the best cave-flyer available in the App Store at present. It’s accelerometer-controlled Lunar Lander on steroids. Also a polished good time." - TouchArcade.com

    "Overall, this game has all the qualities of a great cave-flyer style game. It brings a new polish to the graphics while staying true to many qualities of the classic games of our past. The balance of fuel, shields and time make it a challenge to complete but feasible with practice as with any great game. For the price tag of .99 cents this is a hard bargain to pass up if you like this style game." - CasualGamerChick.com


    RETRO can be played in bed, hanging from the ceiling and in many other real-life situations that most other accelerometer games fail to support. Only the hardened player should attempt to play while water-skiing.
