A great retro style space shooting game has recently received some updates. XY7 1.1.1 is brought to you by Dark Shadow Games and is available for owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Once you have downloaded the game your mission is to destroy as much as possible, as you navigate your single pilot craft through space. Your fighter is the most advanced in the universe which will help you complete challenging missions to collect upgrade points.

As soon as you start to gain these points you can enhance your fighter’s defenses and weapons. You fly your craft by tilting your mobile device, and you have gun and bomb auto-fire to aid your mission. This game will take you back to the days where you just had to blow stuff up with rapid shooting action.

There are 29 action packed levels which include some challenging enemies, and Game Center support provides leaderboards and 29 achievements to unlock. You will also find 19 fast paced music tracks, plus an ‘insane’ mode for the hardcore gamer. Check the video below of the game in action.

XY7 is available worldwide on the App Store for only $0.99/£0.59. iOS 3.0 or later required.
