Starship Alliance app review: test out your shooting skills

Reviews

Introduction

We've come across a "classic" shooting-style game that may look like a classic but certainly performs in a whole lot more impressive manner. The Starship Alliance app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a chance to test out their shooting skills in this 2D environment. Gameplay is fast-paced, challenging, and filled with fun and takes place in space where you'll find all kinds of asteroids, planets, and stars as you fly around in your spaceship. The game even offers social features, which is always a big bonus with gamers.

Now is your chance to explore space as you fly past asteroids, stars, and planets in the 2D adventure that is Starship Alliance. The gameplay is simple here - just aim, shoot, and don't die! As mentioned it uses the shooting style of gameplay that so many players love and it supports Game Center so you can get real competitive. This is your chance to see where you stand on the Leaderboards and add that extra layer of challenge to the game. You can share your high scores through social networks such as Twitter and Facebook and invite friends to play through Facebook.
