In the far future, armadas from surrounding systems have suddenly waged war on Earth, destroying crucial installations and major cities - Earth is quickly brought to its knees. You are a pilot from the Ares Squadron, flying the fastest, most dangerous crafts ever made. You pilot the TV-202, a fighter few can handle. Given that the previous model, the TV-101, has chalked up more dead pilots than any experimental craft in history, many consider you lucky to be alive. You're outgunned, outmanned, and strapped into a flying coffin.

Ratings and Reviews

Not worth the money


This game is just like it was in the early '90s- basic graphics, basic soundtrack, basic amount of fun. Nostalgia compelled me to check out the app. It's decent; controls were adapted for screens, of course, but everything (I do mean *everything*) is like it was decades ago. It's just not worth the $2.99 I paid; if it were free, I might give it a higher rating.



Brings back the kid in me. Love this game 20 years ago still love it today. As one guy put it to music alone just put me back in A nostalgic mood!!!! You can't even begin to imagine how games of changed and are not near as enjoyable as they were 20 years ago. I look forward to seeing what other old games you guys can bring back! If you're looking for a game that just goes on and on different levels after different levels this is the one! You rock!!!!!!!! Now if you can make head-to-head play I would love to play my friends in this game like it used to do, head-to-head one phone to another!

Great game for your phone

Free hot dawgz

I was surprised to see this in the App Store but I bought it right away since I have fond memories of it. First off, the controls are fantastic. Although the they aren't really customizable, they don't need to be because the sensitivity and responsiveness is perfect. The gameplay consists of flying around and shooting stuff, nothing complicated and it's really easy to pick up and play. The menus are absolutely terrible though and that is the only reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars. Overall I would highly recommend this, especially if you enjoyed it back in the day.
