If you are looking to get an 80s-style arcade space shooter for your phone to play on the go, then P.3 from developer Devjgame is a solid option. This new iOS game takes inspiration from the classics and strives to deliver a tight arcade action experience with a simple touch-based control scheme. You’ll control a rogue ship to fight through hordes of enemies across multiple regions of space. Check out the trailer for the game below:

P.3 offers 5 distinct stages and bosses for you to content yourself with. Each and every one of them will put your shooting skills and reflex to the ultimate test. Enemies will come at you in a seemingly never-ending stream, forcing you to dodge between the tiny gaps between their lines of fire before retaliating with your own arsenal. Not only that, but the environment will also present tons of challenges and obstacles as well, so just one mistake can lead to your run coming to an untimely end.

Thankfully, the game does have a wide collection of weapons and power-ups that you can unlock upon leveling up, allowing you to take on tougher foes as you go on and ensuring that the action constantly stays fresh.

As mentioned, P.3 employs a very simple touch-based control scheme, making it perfect for the mobile platform. Basically, all you have to do is tapping the two left/right buttons located at the bottom of the screen to have your ship switch to that direction and fire at the same time. Additionally, you can hold them both down at once to enter a slow-motion state, giving you an edge over the enemy.

The game also has a unique look compared to other titles of the same genre thanks to the scan lines that constantly run alongside the stage, mimicking the old CRT screens and delivering the feeling of a true 80s shooter.
