Nostalgics, get united! Div's Space Shooter Ultimate is an arcade shoot'em up inspired by the classic STG. You take control of a space cadet on a full-armed spaceship against hundreds of enemies and asteroids.
Tap and hold the space ship and drag to move while the level scrolls forwards automatically. Try to destroy spaceships and asteroids on your way or avoid them if the crash is inevitable. It fires automatically so you can focus on dodging and clear the screen of enemies.
You'll score points as you progress. Exchange those points for spaceship upgrades (shields, weapons and droid support). It becomes mandatory to get further in your missions. Boss fights are awaiting you at the end of each level and you'll need the best weaponry if you want to beat them at once.
Graphics aren't outstanding but still they are over the genre's average. Neat and polished textures and well-crafted explosion animations. However, there's still room for improvement regarding controls: they aren't as smooth as this kind of games require.
The upgrading system may also be enhanced. It would be nice to control more parameters: engine, spaceship models, choose among weapons, etc.
Finally, different game modes and online leaderboards would make it stand out.
Regardless, Div's Space Shooter Ultimate is a good time-killer for nostalgics players.
