South African developer Polymorph has released a game for iOS that blends arcade action with space invader-type nostalgia, and it’s doing really well on Apple’s App Store.
It’s called Fleet of One, and it’s “an original space blaster designed for touch screen interaction that celebrates the glory of classic arcade shooters”, according to the official press release.
It currently has a 5-star rating, and people who’ve left reviews on its page can’t stop gushing over its aesthetics, spot-on controls and nostalgic value. As one reviewer puts it, “Every once in a while an app so beautifully assembled comes along that you can’t stop thinking about it. This is definitely one of those.”
It’s available for the paltry sum of $1.99 until the 22nd of August, so grab it for cheap while you can. Just be sure you have a US iTunes account because ironically, a South African-developed game isn’t available on the South African iTunes store.
