Updated 27th October, 09:13 AM: Without too long of a wait you can now get The Lost Shield on iOS and bask in its nostalgic, retro glory.

Grab the game here on the App Store for £1.49/$1.99 and go make history with your magic balls...and then go save the world.


The Lost Shield is the type of retro we've been missing. The Game Boy-style retro, before Game Boy Colour came out, this happy, little game looks like something plucked right out of the early 90s…and we love it.

This brick break/adventure game is one for the ages as you play as a hero on a deadly quest to return a magical shield back to where it belongs. Rescue followers as you traverse the perilous world and add them to your party. You must also pay close attention to your powerful balls, upgrading them when you get the opportunity to help you in the many battles you'll face.

With six arenas, 54 stages, 20+ enemy types, 20 achievements to unlocks, and six epic bosses to defeat, The Lost Shield tastes an awful lot like nostalgia. You can also unlock arcade mode and challenge other players from around the world with a clear 'my balls are bigger than your balls' taunt.

The Lost Shield
will be in our laps on the 27th October (I assume for iOS) and will be a mere £1.49/$1.99.
