Description

Fly your fighter ship through intergalactic space and vaporize enemy ships. Avoid asteroids or vaporize them for special power-ups! This exciting shoot 'em-up was inspired by the best elements of 1980's arcade classics. The genre is propelled in the 21st century through clever use of the iPhone/iPod's accelerometer. Tilt your device left or right to steer the ship and use your thumbs to thrust and shoot. Unlike other games where the player can be upside-down in the screen, this game's camera follows to the player's ship as it moves around in the universe. This perspective, borrowed from 3-D games, works especially well for this type of 2-D shooter on the iPhone (and iPod touch) and allows the player to immerse more easily in the gameplay rather than being distracted by an unintuitive metaphor. Think of it as 3rd person for a 2D scroller which has 360º of liberty of movement. Be sure to upgrade your ship's shield and weapons systems with one of the many available power-ups before you reach the boss levels, or you won't measure up to the motherships. Don't forget to collect orange heart tokens: 25 and you get an extra life. If you're lucky, you might even find a red heart token, which gives you an extra life immediately. This game features 25 increasingly difficult levels that will satisfy casual players while still challenging the best hardcore of gamers. Hours of entertainment and high re-playability factor! The quicker you finish the levels, the bigger bonus bonus you get. Are you talented enough to land a spot on the worldwide leaderboard? Features: * 25 action-packed levels with increasing difficulty * Player-centric top-down scroller with 360º of liberty * Power-ups, extra lives and surprises * Beat the clock bonuses * Saves progress on exit and on incoming phone calls so you can pick up your game later * Upload your highest score to our worldwide leaderboard (if you want to)
