NEW TERRA is a challenging and addictive multi-directional gravity-based space shooter. Fuel goes fast and is hard to come by. Hauling cargo makes your ship very heavy and mobility becomes limited. Strategy and resource conservation is key to completing your missions or you won't survive.

“New Terra kept me occupied while effortlessly combining a need for precision with cutthroat difficulty. The game is fair and offers a great challenge... The fantastic soundtrack and fine-tuned controls far outweigh any graphical issues.... The soundtrack and finely tuned controls elevated the game as a whole, and it’s definitely a solid title for the right audience... New Terra is a very encouraging start for WINTERYEAR Studios.”
8.5/10 – Handheld Gaming Community

“Long anticipated and worth the wait! Smooth game play, really beautiful poster-ready artwork, great music. Surprising attention to detail and some pretty cool little touches, from the running men graphic to the one liners like "stop touching stuff with your ship." It's a fun game but challenging - luckily the difficulty settings are your friend, especially when your fuel level is not. Action is kind of reminiscent of traditional arcade games but way cooler. Looking forward to more from this developer.”
10/10 – Metacritic

About This Game

Handheld Gaming Community says NEW TERRA is GREAT and gives it an 8.5/10:

NEW TERRA is a multi-directional gravity based space shooter and more specifically, it's a physics strategy game set in outer space, on asteroids, under alien oceans, within mineshafts on distant planets and so on.

You control the ships rotation and forward/reverse thrust, with every thrust use costing you fuel.

The ship is constantly pulled downward by gravity, which you can use to your advantage if you strategize properly, or it will work against you.

Each level has limited fuel and limited power ups, so if you make inefficient decisions, you will often run out of fuel and crash (and die).

You have weapons but you have to sometimes strategize the use of them. (especially around allies or when surrounded by rock, as it will cause rock to fall and land on you or enemies.)

You can't touch anything with your ship or you quickly take damage. Obviously, if you take too much damage you will crash (and die).

Some missions require you to tow heavy objects which makes your fuel burn twice as fast for a quarter of the speed of travel, so physics and decision making come very much into play.

There are 18 unique missions all set on different planets, asteroids or interstellar locations and there is also a "pitch black mode" where it turns the lights out on every single level so you have only your headlamp to rely on for visibility, this ultimately brings 36 unique experiences to you as a player.

It's an extremely challenging but fun game. As a player, you start out with 30 lives. Hidden in each level is an extra life you can claim once.
