Free retro gaming with Astro The Last Fly for BlackBerry 10

Anyone for a free space arcade style game? Astro The Last Fly for BlackBerry 10 is just that and although very simplistic it's a bunch of fun and one that will certainly be staying on my BlackBerry for when I have a few minutes to kill. 

The aim of the game is to just make your space craft travel as far as possible. This is done by touching the BlackBerry screen to make it go up and then releasing to make it descend. Of course, things aren't quite that easy. Firstly, there are a ton of obstacles you'll need to avoid and secondly, because you only have limited fuel you will need to pick up extra fuel pods which appear on screen as red icons. 

There isn't really a whole bunch more to say apart from that it's totally awesome with bright, crisp, retro graphics and a funky backing track.

Astro is only available for all-touch BlackBerry 10 devices I'm afraid, but if you have one I'd urge you to give it a go. 

That is all. Enjoy.

OK - I may be really stupid - how do you control the ship? No screen swipes seem to have any effect (Z10).

Thanks in advance!

Confirmed - I AM STUPID - If I had just read the copy in the announcement would have figured it out.

Ok. Now where the hell is the review for the offering on the Q series of devices? What's that you say? Crackberry still has not figured out that there are more then just Z series users that read these reviews and look forward to the offerings and opinions of the staff? Well, perhaps if the Q series is continued to be ignored, we Q series users should boycott Crackberry. Seems it has worked for Duck Dynasty and Crackerbarrel. Lol. Seriously though. Come on guys. If the reviewer only owns a Z series then replace them with someone that supports both the Q and Z equally. That seems fair doesn't it? Oh. And Merry Christmas.
