Star Race Omega is a fun and frantic space shoot 'em up game with a cool, unique feature: your ship bounces off the edge of the screen and center scoreboard. Your mission is to fly around this space arena and destroy drone ships and mines.
Star Race Omega was developed for the original iPhone back in 2008, and the concept is based on the classic Omega Race arcade game created by Ron Haliburton at Midway in 1981. As a teenager, I loved playing Omega Race in the arcade and on the Atari 2600, Commodore VIC-20, Commodore 64, and ColecoVision. So with Midway and Omega Race long gone, Star Race Omega was one of the very first games I developed for the iPhone in 2008. The 2022 refresh adapts the app to newer devices and screen formats, but keeps the same old school feel, sounds, and graphics as the original 2008 release.
The free app plays up to level 2. An optional in-app purchase unlocks unlimited levels. Legacy customers who purchased v2.1 or earlier can unlock unlimited levels for free after signing into the App Store for verification.
