Genoa, Italy – May 1 st UNAgames wants to celebrate the Workers' Day with all workers playing iOS games, giving for FREE its space action shooter Tapsteroids, which comes today with a major update. May 1 is a national holiday in more than 80 countries and celebrated unofficially in many other countries, UNAgames hopes that everyone around the world will enjoy this GIFT in this special day.

As this is not only a price drop but also an update, below there are the details of the new features.

- Each difficulty level has its own score multiplier: more challenge, more points.

- New space stations to land in for all the spaceships fleet.

- New tutor character inspired by old anime cartoons.
