Back in 2012, Bungie co-founder Alex Seropian hooked up with industry vet Tim Harris to start work on a new sci-fi shooter for iOS called Midnight Star. Tonight, finally, it'll be out.
It's set 120 years in the future and involves blasting ugly aliens with all kinds of pew-pews and bang-bangs. Yes, guns, that's what they're called.
We got our hands on Midnight Star last year and had quite a good time with it. Sure, it's an on-rails shooter, which will no doubt get some groans, but it works well.
You see, without having to worry about moving your character, you can focus on blasting aliens with a touch of the finger. It's all about scoring chains of kills.
Once you've cleared out a rocky terrain or clobbering brutes and insectoid pests, you head back to your ship to upgrade everything. Yes, everything: your guns, ships, skills, the lot.
There should be plenty of different load-outs to try out. And you won't have to worry about running out of bugs to bulldoze.
Oh, and it also has multiplayer challenges and open events so that you can compete against people around the world.
Midnight Star should be available to download for free on the UK and US App Stores at midnight. And, yep, it's supported by IAPs including Starter Packs and handfuls of Catalysts.
