"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.
