StarDrone Extreme, as it will be called, will set you back $3.99 and has more of the same fast-paced spaceship-flying action as its console counterpart.

"For those of you not familiar with what StarDrone Extreme is about, you pilot an always-in-motion spaceship through diverse cosmic environments through the game's 60 levels. Goals can range from making it safely to the end of the level, to destroying all enemies, to collecting certain items, and more. What's unique about StarDrone Extreme is the way you control your spaceship," explains the developer.

"Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself out of a cannon into outer space. Your spaceship stays in motion from this point on, and it's your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate its flight path. While tethered to a beacon, you will swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic allowed us to bring together elements of shoot 'em up, pinball, collecting objects and exploration in one game that has no comparison"

Get it? No? Here's a trailer:
