Retro Space 3D iOS SNAPP Review!

(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)

Retro Space 3D is a vertical shmup that was recently released on the App Store by developer Samuel Souza. This is kind of a sequel to the developer’s previous Retro: Space game that he released back in 2018. Retro Space 3D is a level-based game that uses the usual 3-star system. There are 8 levels total with each level having 2 stages and a boss fight. The gameplay is pretty standard for a shmup. You shoot enemies down while collecting dropped power-ups. As you progress, you’ll earn gems that you can use to upgrade your ship’s attack speed, luck, shield, and a bunch more. I’ve been really enjoying Retro Space 3D so far. The controls are pretty tight and the Corel visuals are nice and chunky. Sure, the game isn’t  bringing a whole lot new to the genre, but there’s nothing wrong with that. There aren’t many levels, but with an Infinite Mode and Boss Rush, there’s plenty of content to keep you busy for a little while. My only issue is that the other ships in the game that you can purchase are only cosmetic. I would’ve liked to have seen the ships a little more unique. Regardless, Retro Space 3D is a solid little shmup. If you’re a fan of the genre, you should check this one out.
