Matt Wasteland’s Starbloom Makes iOS Debut
Shadegrown Games’ latest title, Starbloom, reminds me of Nintendo’s super cool bit Generations titles for the GBA, and that’s actually a good thing. The game provides a brand new musical experience for iOS users and is the brainchild of Matthew Burns, the veteran developer that some of you may know as “Matt Wasteland” from the pages of Game Developer magazine. He also has many industry credits to his name for his involvement in the CoD and Halo franchises.
Gameplay wise, orbiting planets pulsate with sound and send ring-shaped waves of stellar matter into space. Players draw their fingers along the surface of the screen, collecting the matter and earning bonuses under certain conditions. Five levels are included, each with unique art and music. There are two different game modes. In Creation mode, players must avoid touching the planets; but in Destruction mode, collisions are an integral part of the gameplay.
The game will be available at a special discounted price of $0.99 for the week of October 15th – starting today – after which it will go to its regular price of $1.99.Powered by Sidelines
