Next Generation Space Shooter Game App, Stroid, Now Available In The App Store for iPhone

December 19, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
December 19, 2014 - Little Log Cabin Games, an indie developer of retro arcade games based out of the Untied Kingdom, announces the release of Stroid in the App Store. Stroid is a fresh take on the Space Shooter game genre with its simple gameplay, accompanied by an angular, clean visual style. This beautifully designed app is a retro-synth space shooter that tasks players with destroying hazards from the orbits of near and distant planets.

Stroid tests players' reflexes and challenges them to complete every last level. Players navigate thirty exospheres, attempting to clear each of dangers, whilst avoiding satellites and collecting ore for ship upgrades and power ups.

One feature that makes the game stand out is its minimalistic art style, which, combined with a catchy space-themed soundtrack and simple tilt-and-tap gameplay that gets more challenging over time, will win over its users almost instantly.

"Space Shooters are typically frenetic affairs with screens full of particle effects and enemies. Stroid is a simple take on the genre that I wanted to be accessible, charming and addictive. The game's premise and action were inspired by a Unity3D tutorial and Vlambeer's Ridiculous Fishing and the game's colourful, angular art style is intended to create a cohesive, appealing world." says creator Matthew Sawrey.

Stroid is now available for download on the App Store for $1.99/£1.49. For more information, check out the game's profile page on Facebook, follow Matt on Twitter or check out his website,
