Retro Style Fun

Who doesn't enjoy a little retro-style fun and that's exactly what the Arrow Ship app is able to deliver. There are all kinds of levels to clear here and they provide plenty of challenge. In this arcade-style game you will need to choose a path and then collect all the cells on that path as you move along. If you are able to do that successfully then you will clear the level. There are plenty of bright colors, fun graphics, and music to help set the scene. You’ll also find the game controls to be responsive and simple so that you can focus on the challenge instead. The game can be played by any age group meaning both adults and kids will have fun with this one.

The best arcade apps for the iPad

Because the app is a brand-new release it doesn't yet have any customer comments, a customer rating, or any updates. It requires iOS 6.0 or later to use. There are no in-app purchases necessary in this app however it should be noted that it does contain ads.

The Gaming Experience

When you first launch the app you will be able to get a brief tutorial, which is very helpful. It will show you all the ins and outs of the game as well as the controls, which are all very simple to understand. The instructions are actually given with the help of pictures, which will make the gameplay all the more clear. Your goal is to head along your path using the arrows to move and collect the red cells. You can shoot the obstacles out of your way, you can speed up, but be sure you keep your eyes open for the flying triangles because you don’t want to get hit by them.

Final Thoughts
