QUEBEC CITY, Canada - December 7, 2011
Big man in a furry red coat? Check. Special gifts for good boys and girls everywhere? Check. Spreading holiday cheer? More like raining holiday destruction on alien scum. Frima Studio announced today that its hit retro shoot’em up A Space Shooter for Free received an update for the holidays on the Android platform. Don’t let the furry red coat and hat fool you though; Commander Jefferson is more deadly than ever at the helm of the USS Eradicator.
Exclusively available as a 99-cent in-app purchase, the new Starfire special weapon will turn the Eradicator’s main cannon into a deadly fireball-slinging killing machine, increasing damage by 50%. It will also allow for firing diagonally backwards to annihilate aliens that manage to slip past the first line of fire. The upgrade is available in the new streamlined shop that combines remnant (points) and real money purchases on a single screen.
Those short on time that want to see Commander Jefferson at his most lethal can purchase the full suite of available upgrades for only $4.99 – 50% off the original price. Individual upgrades are also available for 99 cents each.
