SolarQuest's space theme and horizontal-scrolling levels will make any shoot-'em-up fan feel instantly at home. Well, at least until they realise there's no actual shooting in it. That doesn't stop it, however, from being an enjoyable game.
Originally starting life as a Java game for Motorola's venerable i85 phone, SolarQuest places you in control of a ship through ten levels, avoiding obstacles while collecting shield and extra-life power-ups.
You fly by tilting the iPhone forwards and backwards to float up and down, while tapping an onscreen button to fire your afterburners to move forwards. The more you use them, the more points you score for each level.
