Brisbane, Australia – Fuel up your spaceships and arm your blasters, because the next free iOS game from Dobsoft Studios has invaded Apple’s App Store and is available for download today. Space Inflaters is a shmup with a twist – after inflating aliens with their weapons, players must pop them using their ship to score points and coins.
While a journey through the Space Inflaters galaxy begins quite smoothly, things quickly heat up as the intelligent difficulty scaling kicks in. Before too long players are faced with more advanced enemies and even giant boss encounters. Thankfully the in-game store offers a range of upgrade options to help lessen the perils of space adventure. Coins to spend at the store are earned while playing and can also be bought via in-app purchase.
Will Dobson, director and technical lead at Dobsoft Studios, commented on the rising popularity of the freemium model in today’s gaming market. “We love that being a free product means more people get to play our games. Since we’re gamers ourselves, we make sure to carefully balance our stores so that everything can be earned organically in time, while simultaneously providing a value proposition to those players who are happy to spend real money.”
