Astro Crow, a newly-formed company dedicated to making games for the smartphone market, have just released their debut game- The Last Ace of Space- for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The Last Ace of Space is a new take on the wildly popular Persistent Platformer genre- a genre that includes the global smash hit Doodle Jump- where an endless level provides randomly-generated challenges, and players compete for the highest score. The game focuses on a feline space adventurer named Ace who crash lands on an alien planet to find they aren’t very pleased with his arrival. Using the player’s help, along with his loyal sidekick Rocket Pig, Ace must jump over, slide under, pop, flick, and shoot various enemies and obstacles to avoid being roughed up (or even puked on!), all the while running from a disgusting green blob (the “Slime Monster”) that wants Ace to be his lunch.

The Last Ace of Space is available now for $0.99 (USD) on the Apple App Store worldwide. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPad2 (native iPad mode will be possible once the version 1.1 update is released), and iPod Touch (2nd Generation or higher). It supports HD retina display, and has high-quality original artwork and music. Players can use Open Feint and/or Game Center to unlock achievements, as well as see their high score ranking worldwide, daily, and amongst their friends.
