Ever wished to go beyond those stars visible to us but out of reach? They say that it takes nearly a billion dollar to be a part of the space journey organized by NASA. It seems to be more far than those stars themselves. But what if you could travel the whole universe for free? What’s more! You will be riding your own spaceship and that too with top secret space missions to be completed. It is just a dream come true for you, isn’t it! Then let us grant this wish of yours while the Santa leaves an iPhone equipped with Star Splitter 3D for you this season on Christmas!

Star Splitter 3D is the new iOS app that has been developed by StepGames. The app has been transported from the Android Play Store where it has already been a huge success. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the app has been optimized for iPhone 5 and requires iOS 5.0 or later version. The app launches into a space journey with you being the explorer. But apart from appreciating the gigantic structure of universe, you are also working for some space corporations on missions to capture new lands and destroy aliens.

The shooting game kicks off with you hanging around and destroying asteroids and killing your enemies. Then, you can go for missions to evade any planet or save yours. There are total of more than 60 levels with mediocre difficulty level but the developers have paid enough to compensate for it. That’s why they have provided the worst controls either with the accelerometer or the D pad. While on the journey, whenever two targets come in front of you, you can’t hit both of them sitting at one position. You’ll have to align yourself in a straight line with that target and then shoot. It’s because both the shooter and your spaceship move with a single control.

But there must be something for the immense popularity of the game. The best players of the team are graphics and animation. You won’t find that taste anywhere else. Neatly designed with in-depth details and real-like textures, the animations serve as the sweet dish for that perfect treat. You can just spend a few minutes doing nothing but exploring the digital universe. But when it gets too long, you start getting disappointed as there are a lot of space gaps in the game with nothing but you.

As you complete more and more missions, you’ll earn points which can be used to upgrade your weapons and if enough, even your spaceship. There are better machines with higher speeds and better control. So, there is always something to cheer for that keeps you urging for more. But, as always there are in-app purchases available to earn those points in exchange of real money.

The game is better than average. If we just go for the appearance and looks, it is one of the best in the business but the controls ruin the glory. Still we liked it and would recommend all of you. After all, it is free!

Pros: beautiful graphics and animations, more than 60 missions, free.

Cons: bad controls, empty spaces.
