Free arcade shooter Star Troll takes sci-fi back to its sidescrolling alien-blasting roots

As you fly through asteroid fields and blast tentacled aliens in 2D arcade space-shooter Star Troll it's recommended that you sing Star Trekkin'.

You'll have to replace "Star Trekkin' across the universe" with "Star Trollin' across the universe," but other than that you're good to go.

This is because the sci-fi of Star Troll has that retro appeal to it. It has none of the crew management of FTL: Faster Than Light or the haunting loneliness of Out There.

Star Troll enjoys its sci-fi, and so you blast through weird space beings enjoying yourself, and only that.

You only have to use a single finger to control your spaceship and shoot ahead of it. And with that small gesture you'll take down entire species, defeating bosses, and collecting power-ups.

In other words, Star Troll has a retro, good-time arcade feel to it. So if that's what you want with your sci-fi, consider download it for free.

You can get it on the App Store [download], Google Play [download], and the Windows Phone Store [download].
