Phoenix HD is the best looking shoot'em up that everyone can enjoy! Enjoy the marvelous action and rise to the challenge at your own pace in this action packed game. Phoenix HD is a modern arcade game with intense action and brilliant graphics, where every playthrough is different. Some of our unique features include:

* Amazing Visuals – 60 Frames Per Second of pure awesome!
Our in-house developed Flare engine provides the ability to display thousands of bullets and particles at the same time, while still maintaining a rock solid framerate at 60 frames per second. This makes Phoenix one of the most spectacular shoot 'em ups available for everyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

* Procedurally Generated Content
The procedural content generator can create hundreds of thousands of enemy variations. Combined with the adaptive AI director, no single game will be the same.

* Regional High Score Ladders and Game Center Support
Phoenix can use location information to build regional high scores rankings, so you can compare scores with other players in your vicinity. Become the best player in your city, province, country and continent!

* Plenty of Weapons and Power-ups
Both the player and the enemies have a large variety of different weapons at their disposal, each with their own characteristics. Alongside the weapons there are a plethora of power-ups to provide that extra edge needed to overcome the hardest challenges.

What's New in Version 2.2.1

Fixes small issues with certain localizations

Phoenix HD 2.2:

* A new ship: The Striker!
Shooting a lot of missiles is always awesome, and the Striker delivers exactly that! Hold down your finger to let the Striker automatically lock on all targets on the screen, then release your finger to fire the missiles. Repeat until no enemy is standing in your way. Holding down for a longer time improves the locks so stronger missiles will be fired. Can you hold your fire long enough to lock the level 3 missiles? The Striker is available via in-app purchase.

* Full Game Controller Support
This update improves support for iOS 7 Game Controllers. Use the right triggers to use the current held power-up. Press the 'A' button to perform a special action (Phantom Ghost Mode, Striker Fire Missiles), and hold the 'B' button to amplify the inputs of the joysticks for quick dodging.

* Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina
Phoenix HD now runs at Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina.

Thank You!!!

From a dev to another, wow what a great game.

If you love classic old school and indie shooem ups you will that this is epic fun and grade A work.

Some of the awesome Dream Cast latest shooters can't rival this one.

Cheers for the great work.

Love this App

I've had this game foverver and it's on of my go to games. However after downloading the latest update I still don't have the new ship on my iPad. Other than that this game is great!!!

Great game!!!

Fast paced, no lag, progressively difficult... Wish it was stage based instead of infinity mode... But if you are into this kind of game it's definitely worth it!!!
