Fastar! (Fight Angry Squares: The Action RPG!) is an incredibly unique action RPG game that follows the adventures of a nameless protagonist in a blue tuxedo and blue slacks (which can be customized with different colors as he runs across 2D landscapes battling squares of various sizes and colors while visiting villages along the way.
The main character is controlled using the accelerometer; by tilting the iPhone left or right, the character will run in those directions. Attacks are controlled by merely tapping the screen and tilting the device quickly. Special powers which are selected before starting a game can be activate by tapping on their icons in the top right of the screen. The square enemies hop wildly, push forward and literally roll around as they attempt to hurt you. Defeated enemies drop coins which can then be used to purchase upgrades at shoppes. All of the modes are timed and these times are posted on global and local leaderboards which display the time to completion of a level and the stats of your character upon completion as well as your chosen spell. The game also features three alternate control schemes which include swiping, a virtual gamepad and one handed swipe controls.
