Free App of the Day: Buster Red

Buster Red is not the most complex of shmups, but it’s fun and it’s free, and that’s what matters. Firing is automatic, your job is just to move and use power-ups. It looks great, has a really cool soundtrack, and the special attacks are particularly kickass. Good stuff. 

With several playable ships and a boss rush mode, as well as OpenFeint Achievements, there’s plenty to be getting on with the cost of nothing. Check it out, for God’s sake.
