[prMac.com] Sofia, Bulgaria - Independent iPhone app developer Underplot Apps today is pleased to announce the release of its latest game "Pew! Pew! Starblast" on the iTunes App Store. The developer's portfolio includes now 10 titles most of which have been featured in various categories and markets as "New & Noteworthy" and "What's Hot".
"Pew! Pew! Starblast" gives the player the opportunity to control the game's space ship by tilting the device and by producing his/her own sounds like "pew!" or "bang!" to fire the ship's laser gun. The gameplay features a balanced combination of voice control, using the iPhone's accelerometer and a system of in-game bonuses like automatic gun and power-ups.
"Pew! Pew! Starblast" is one of the first games on the App Store involving player voice input actively in the gameplay. It features an advanced adaptive audio processing, which makes it possible to play the game even in relatively noisier environments.
"We wanted to create a game which is really easy to pick-up, but at the same time has a twist that makes it very social and a lot of fun, as playing in company is extremely entertaining experience" the developer says.
