When a side scrolling, old school shooter is described as a “hard as nails shmup,” I am instantly interested. This is what can be said about Soul Grinder, the first game coming from indie studio Zombiesaurus this week to the iTunes store.

The developers say that they wanted to offer us with Soul Grinder that old school shmup experience where insane difficulty makes you play the levels over and over again in order to try to shoot down every baddie, collect every score and get that 100% completion rating. Or go crazy and smash your device to a wall during a gamer’s rage. Anything’s possible!

Drawing inspiration from games like Super Meat Boy and Contra, Soul Grinder for iOS will challenge you with short fixed levels that await you to master them as fast as possible. We have a trailer below that shows how it’s done, so make sure to check it out:

Soul Grinder launches this week and will set you back $0.99
