Soar through the sky battling against invaders in this all-new fantasy endless shooter from legendary game creator, Yu Suzuki. Players will assume the role of Princess Arch fighting back against bizarre invaders to save their planet from destruction. They'll rain down their homing arrows to trace graceful arcs of light across beautiful, artfully crafted stages, before they pierce their foes. With a fun and easy touchscreen swipe-shooting gameplay mechanic, the destiny of the planet is in the player's hands.

Alongside controller support you'll find Game Center compatibility, while the game itself comes in at a cool 3GB per download. You'll need an iPhone or iPad running iOS 13 or newer, while macOS Monterey is required to play on your Mac. Those playing on the big screen will need an Apple TV running tvOS 13 or newer, too.
