Retrope is a retro sci-fi shooter headed to iOS later this month.

As well as being classically gorgeous, Retrope is a box of four endless arcade with Skillz platform support. Just to sum this one up quickly, Skillz is an e-sports platform which lets you compete against, and test out your skills against, other players.

Its one-touch mechanics couldn't get simpler, but its 'draw a line' tactic has a different use in each of the four games. Sometimes you might be taking down a bunch of enemies, or other times you could be wracking your brain to figure out a tricky puzzle, it's a very clever application of such a simple manoeuvre.

See how long you can last in these quick-to-play levels and beat your friends' scored while you're at it. Retrope is coming to iOS on the 23rd December free-to-play with IAPs.
