Description

Retro Rockets is a space adventure game. It allows you to actually pilot starship rockets in order to retrieve satellites and space-walking astronauts for points, while avoiding collisions with asteroids. Retro Rockets is a starship commander training experience. Heads-up display (HUD) controls appear right on your view of the space situations that change below them.

Are you skilled enough to pilot a deep-space warp-engine starship? You’ll have to prove it first by completing the local system missions of this starship trainer game. Featuring animated objects and inspiring visual effects in different space arenas.

You will pilot a spaceship while earning your Weapons, Navigation, and Helms ratings in order to become a Starship Commander. Your mission objectives include capturing moving satellites and retrieving floating astronauts while blasting asteroids, collecting geological specimens, and completing EVA space-walks. You must prove you are capable of spaceship lift-offs, landings, and maneuvering while achieving your objectives. You will gain points by meeting mission objectives and lose points if you cannot avoid and blast space asteroids with photon torpedoes.

You begin the game with three power crystals for your ship. You lose a power crystal if an asteroid or a photon torpedo hits your ship when shields are down. You restore one damaged power crystal when you have finished a level without losing a power crystal on that level. The game is won when you complete a safe landing on the last level. The game ends if you lose all your good power crystals.

Application settings include both Basic and Advanced modes. This game is intended to delight all that ever dreamed about going into space. Rated ‘fun for everyone’.

You control the movement of your rocket ship with a thrust button, warp drive (accelerometer input by tilting), and all-stop controls. You patrol the local sector of your galaxy by using photon torpedoes to change the trajectories of asteroids, and using deflector shields to minimize collision damage. Your mission objectives will require demonstrating a mastery of your rocket commander skillsand before you know it you will have seen local planets, visited planetary moons, gone to deep space, and returned to land where it all began.

Controls include...

THRUST BUTTON: Press to fire retro rockets.

ROTATE BUTTONS: Press to rotate left or right.

STOP BUTTON: Press to eliminate all momentary movement.

WARP DRIVE SWITCH: ON to enable warp drives; OFF to disable warp drives.

SHIELDS SWITCH: ON raise defensive shields; OFF lower defensive shields.

PHOTON TORPEDO BUTTON: Press to fire Photon torpedoes.

Power crystal status is displayed below the Retro Rockets title. There are eleven action packed levels. Everyone will be delighted by this entertaining adventure set in beautiful out-of-this-world locations. Simply put, “It’s Fun!”

What's New in Version 2.0

Crash landings now animated (when not aligned correctly with launch pad).

Power Crystal status is now displayed on screen.

Asteroid or Photon torpedo hitting the rocket with Shields OFF will damage one crystal. Finish a level without losing any power crystals on that level, and one damaged crystal is restored to good.

Rocket now has eight points of rotate instead of four.

Heads-up display controls now see-through so you can better see the action underneath them.

Attention Star Trek and Star Wars fans you've got to see this app...

:
I love this app. I have always been interested in rockets and space stuff. This game is perfect entertainment for me anytime I want something to do on my iPhone. Who doesn't like blasting asteroids??

It is fairly easy to move between levels in a short amount of time (say ten minutes), so the game changes frequently.

The space images are fantastic, makes me feel like I'm right there myself. I can use it in Basic mode when I don't want much of a challenge--and sometimes thats the mood I'm in. Or I can use it in Advanced mode, which makes it so I must be much more attentive to what I'm doing or I lose all my energy crystals.

This is sick fun (meaning good stuff).

I DO RECOMMEND this game to others considering buying it.
("Live long and prosper.")
