What the Press Are Saying:
As a complete package, Star Wars Pinball delivers the kind of arcade experience that makes you crave just one more game, constantly chasing to surpass your own score for the sheer satisfaction of it.
Desctructoid - 9.5/10
Each table is chock full of beautiful art, character cameos, and tracks pulled straight from the films' soundtracks. These first three tables are a bold and equally stellar introduction to Star Wars Pinball, and they'll keep you more than busy until Zen Studios drops the next batch.
Game Informer - 8.5/10
You don't need to be a Star Wars fan to recognize the creativity Zen has brought to the new tables. The company continues to include more fantasy elements in its designs.
CNET - 8.9/10
The best thing about Star Wars Pinball is its jaw-dropping graphics. The many targets, ramps, rollovers, and kickers that make up its pinball course are all polished with incredible detail. Even the pinball itself is stunning, with its metallic surface realistically reflecting the ambient lights as it spins across the table. And the choreographed flashing of all these table elements really make you feel as though Zen Studios pulled out all the stops when making this game.
Penny Arcade Report (Ben Kuchera)
If you’re a fan of pinball, Star Wars, or fun things, this is pretty much a must-purchase.

Hone your hunting techniques to lethal precision as you earn full membership in the Predators clan by tracking down and eliminating packs of elite human assassins, and defending yourself against even deadlier enemies...
Brought to you by Angry Mob Games, the creators of Guerrilla Bob and Muffin Knight!
“The Predator is just a badass.” – IGN; Editor’s Choice Award
“… all-around excellent human-slaying action.” – Gizmodo; This Week’s Best Apps
“…check[s] off all the gory boxes to satisfy even the headiest of cult followers.” – TouchArcade

"Predators is a classic..." - GameRating UK
YOU ARE THE PREDATOR
These humans are the most dangerous killers on the planet…but it’s not their planet. This planet is a game preserve and they are the prey. Pit your incredible Predator strength, stealth, and alien technology against the killer instincts of the nine deadliest human beings alive; mercenaries, assassins, death-squad soldiers, cartel enforcers, black ops snipers, and more… Prove you are the ultimate Predator. Begin the hunt and end their lives.
No enemy is more dangerous than your own kind. Defend yourself against 3 powerful and distinct Berserker Predators determined to exterminate your clan. Fend off the dangerous Tracker Predator with his ferocious dogs, the Falconer Predator and his vicious hawks, before facing off against your ultimate nemesis--the Super Black Predator.
COLLECT YOUR TROPHIES
Take out your targets and claim your trophies – the heads of your human prey – while unlocking new alien technologies and weaponry to complete the hunt. Strike your targets swiftly and silently, separating them from their group and eliminating them one-by-one.
Use your Stealth Generator and vanish with chameleon-like transparency, then turn on your Thermal Vision while you pull out the big guns. Use long-range cannons, lethal Smart Discs, Razor Whip, the sadistic Net Gun, and of course your deadly wrist-blade and spears. These nasty blades give new meaning to the phrase, “Get to the chopper!”
Use the elements and your surroundings to gain the “upper claw” in a campaign mode of 31 intense and hostile alien environments ranging from eerie killing grounds to dense jungle.

Dive into futuristic combat and navigate through a variety of supernatural landscapes while piloting your starship with intuitive, precise tilt controls. The clean interface allows you to press anywhere on the right side of the screen to rapid fire your main weapon, and press anywhere on the left side to hover. The hovering feature adds a whole new dimension to the game, as you can shoot enemies and dodge their fire without needing to fly past them. Enemies are all tracked in the real-time radar.
Low altitude cruising through detailed close-up terrain sets this game apart from other third-person shooting games. The game play in Solar Warfare lends to up close and personal battles with enemies, and intense slot canyon flying. Though the controls make you feel like you're air borne, this game is much more than a flight simulator - you also need to eradicate an army of hostiles in each world.
Collect coins throughout the game to buy new weapons, upgrade existing weapons, buy stronger shields, buy seeking missiles, and buy revive kits. There is an option to purchase coins within the app for those who just can't wait to own their very own Obliterator. Or you can just save up for all your upgrades by collecting coins in each level.
Each of the 5 main guns is upgradable, with upgrade behavior unique to each weapon. Each shield has unique characterstics as well. Try the seeker missiles for some real fire and forget fun. Stock up on revive kits to continue right where your ship died.
Each of the 8 worlds you explore and cleanse of various hostiles with various behaviors is unique, and simply beautiful. Destroy enemy fighters, jets, space craft, tanks, turrets, airplanes, and more. A different boss at the end of each level is sure to satiate your thirst for epic battles.
You play the hero in modern star wars type science fiction combat, using your space ship to reclaim the galaxy by destroying all of the space invaders. The scenery in Solar Warfare, from space stations, to lush floating mountains, to ice planets, to desert terrain, to asteroid belts and everything in between this sci-fi galaxy's solar halo is detailed and unique. The graphics are great and the FPS is high in this interstellar combat game.
With alien robot exploding laser guns and missiles, Solar Warfare is an exciting space shooting adventure that’s sure to keep you engaged and well entertained. So, soldier - duty calls. Go shoot some bad guys.
If you like games like StarFox, Star Wars, Arc Squadron, Radiant, Galaga, R-Type, Tyrian, Sky Force, Metal Storm, AirAttack, 1942, 1943, Star Battalion, Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance, Siberian Strike, iFighter, Air Strike, Flying Shark, DoDonPachi Gradius, Espgaluda, Swiv, Asteroids, Shogun, Bullet Shooter, Warblade, and any other shoot 'em up, you'll love this game!

Story Behind Its Conception:
So it was a dark and glo...forget it. It was Friday night and a couple of guys were without alcohol and bored out of their minds (with dog fighting module launch still more than month to go). One of these guys by the name of Montoya brought up a brilliant suggestion to create a FlappyBird clone for Star Citizen and thus Aurora Crash was born.
What started out as a simple skinning of a open-source project however turned into a feverish coding as the coder in the team (H0und) rewrote much of the code in order to include new features such as an "Enlist" button for TEST Squadron (I mean we spent at least 5 hours on this gotta make it count :P) and brushed up on other parts.
During this long process we decided that we also needed a mute button, not for the sake of the players, but we literally were going out of minds after listening to 8-Bit render of "Black and Yellow" chorus for nigh on 5 hours straight. And thus the mute button was born (I'm pretty sure those at work will appreciate this :P).
Overall it was a great project to work on and I really am amazed at how to community came together so quickly to work on this project. I would like to personally thank Montoya (original idea), Chrizz (server stuff), H0und (code), JoeCool (artwork), TESTers (hehehe inside joke?), and original creators of FlyingDog who were nice enough to have their project be open-source.
