Dark Star – Over-The-Top Space Shooting Action Launching November 19th

That Wonderful Lemon Co.’s arcade shmup coming first to iPhone and iPad.

Dark Star is the epic shoot-em-up set in deepest darkest space. Pilot your spacecraft through waves of bad guys, barrel-rolling your way to huge scores and ever-bigger explosions. Heavily inspired by classic games from the 80’s and 90’s, Dark Star recaptures that addictive gameplay with graphics finally living up to what old box art promised.

Available as a universal app, Dark Star features frantic gameplay running at a buttery-smooth 60fps. In addition to simple controls, missions, upgradable and unlockable spaceships, Dark Star also boasts competitive score chasing via Game Center.


Loads of updates are planned for post release. More environments, more ships and most importantly – more things to explode. We want Dark Star to be a game that keeps on growing – so we want to work closely with the community and ensure any new content is what players want to see.

Dark Star will feature no in-app purchases. Once purchased you will be eligible for all updates, fixes and new content for free. Forever.

Initially Dark Star will cost $1.99 / £1.49 / ¥12.00 (China) / €1,99 / $29.00 (Mexico), with the price gradually increasing as more content is added.
