The controls here are simple, and well-calibrated. It may take a few rounds to get the hang of things, but this game is addictive in the same way that the classic Space Invaders arcade game was.
As you destroy asteroids and collect resources, you can upgrade your ship. Unlockables include bullet time mode and a “multi-ways shot.” There’s a huge amount of replay value here.
Crossing eight waves and five stages, this graphically intense game boats full HD high-dpi graphics with high end effects like motion blur, image post processing, accelerometer 3D parallax, and screen shaking. The only downside to these killer graphics is accelerated battery drain, so you might want to plug in or use a battery charger for longer gaming sessions.
Complementing the frenetic space shooter action is an electronic soundtrack that will get your pulse pounding. The sound design overall here is very good indeed.
While I’m not personally a huge fan of connecting every single game to my Facebook account, the online social features in this game are nice. The app will never post on your Facebook wall, it will only retrieve your friends list for competition purposes.
Exclusive iOS features include Game Center with leaderboard and achievements, iCloud backup, iOS 7 game controller support, a 64-bit engine, and OpenGL ES 3.0 for iPad Air and iPhone 5S.
Overall, if you’re looking for an arcade gaming experience that’s been beefed up for the 21st century, this is the game you’ve been craving. A solid title with very few issues, this game comes highly recommended.
