AstroWings3 – Free for three days

June 29, 2012

I don’t tend to do “free game of the day” posts but I was asked very politely to mention this one and I have been playing it a lot since downloading it earlier today, so here it is.

AstroWings3 – ICARUS is a universal iOS bullet-hell shooter with nice visuals and great relative-touch controls; you can choose which side of the screen to position the special weapon buttons.

Performance on my 1st gen iPad is smooth and I didn’t notice any slowdown throughout the 3 levels I’ve so far played.

When you start the game, the only difficulty level available is “Easy”. While not a complete breeze it’s fairly straightforward to blast through at least the first two zones, earning yourself some in-game currency to buy a few permanent upgrades.

There are some IAPs, but nothing essential for playing and enjoying the game.

Apart from a couple of “translated by Borat” messages and a typo or two, the overall level of presentation is high, with an attractive menu system and fairly quick load times.

Get it while it’s free and see what you think.
