Ready for a blast from the past? Indie developer Jakub Sakowicz’s first foray into the mobile platform is Lost Spaceships, a retro arcade shooter that is unabashedly dripping in classic, nostalgic charm.
Lost Spaceships is a top-down arcade shooter where you blast lots of alien baddies. Everything is presented in old school pixel artwork, so it is just like the games of ages past.
As the alien invaders approach, you will utilize different spaceships left behind by pilots who tried to stop the invasion. Using their weaponry and advanced mechanisms, you can turn the tides of battle.
There are over 35 lost spaceships to find and collect throughout the galaxy, so there is always a surprise waiting around every turn. Each ship has its own unique weapons, so you never know what kind of awesome firepower you will come across.
Just like the old games, alien ships will drop temporary power ups when they are destroyed. You can change your normal weapon into a super laser, shield, and different kinds of support.
You can also visit the ship beforehand and purchase upgrades to improve the power ups or permanently strengthen your starting weapon.
Lost Spaceships is available now on the App Store.
