Find Your Way Home, Jack
In Galactic Striker, you're Jack Panic, the world's greatest (and cockiest) astronaut and hero. As the story begins, you're called upon to protect Earth once again--this time from a renegade asteroid. But during this routine mission, you accidentally damage an alien mothership (oops) and insult their leader (double-oops), who subsequently teleports you to the other side of the galaxy (not cool, bro).
To get home again, you'll have to shoot your way through waves of alien attacks and other deep-space obstacles. Tilt your phone to navigate your spaceship, and choose from an ever-expanding list of futuristic weapons as you fight your way through space. You'll need your strongest firepower, steeliest nerves, and sharpest wisecracks to make it back to Earth.
Are you up to this massive challenge? Of course you are--you're Jack Panic! (Let's assume that "Don't" is your middle name.)
A free, ad-supported version of this game is also available.

Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term "App Store." Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
