Whenever you see video or photos of real-life astronauts up in space, they never seem to be in any sort of danger.

Yet games set in space are always perilous journeys fall of aliens and asteroids. Exodus, coming soon to iPhone, is no different.

Put in charge of a space fleet, your task is to travel to distant planets, dodging black holes and comets, and rescuing as many people as possible.

Once you've picked them up, you'll need to drive them back to the safety of the space station docks.

There's six stages to play through, with OpenFeint leaderboards and achievements to aim for.

The game will be released around 4th June, so if Exodus sounds like your kind of thing make sure you check the App Store around that time.
