Enjoyable 1-on-1 Space Combat!
This is a fun little game - it takes a GeoWars type of arena and puts you into a 1-on-1 duel. You get to use one of the ships you've defeated (or the default one.) Graphics, music and sound are all good, and for the most part, gameplay is solid.
There's only one major thing I don't like about the game: the controls. Moving your ship is controlled by touching and swiping on the left side. My guess is that this was done to reduce screen clutter, but for me it seems worse as my left thumb ends up creeping more and more towards the middle of the screen. I'd love to see an analog control there (like any of the other twin- (or single-) stick fighters on the platform. Thrusting is indicated with an arrow, which helps make directions clearer, but I struggled with the movement controls.
Two minor niggles - the ships splitting into four pieces when destroyed looks cheezy and out of place with all of the rest of the graphics - either have a more realistic break up, or an explosion or particle effects or something. Also, it would be nice to have some music or ambient noise at the menu screen.
I did not get to check out the multiplayer, but I think it would be a lot of fun (wifi, I'd use BlueTooth if it was there...)
After playing through the first challenge, I was immediately hooked for more. This game is definitely worth it as it has brought me endless hours of entertainment! I'm getting a head start and sharpening my skills so I can beat my friends when they get this game ;) Shhh... don't tell them I'm practicing though!
This is a fun, challenging, and well executed game. The smooth graphics, visual, and sound effects blew me away. The controls takes some getting used to. I love that you can choose from five different space ships. Different modes and challenges really give this game more depth. I'd love to see more ships in the next version. :)
