Planet Wars

By ColePowered

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Planet Wars is a top-down alien shooter with unique hand-drawn graphics, exciting action & strategy gameplay and completely customisable weapons!

Simple customisable controls make the game easy to pick up and play.

Play through the 10 mission campaign, with beautifully illustrated graphic novel style story panels. Missions range from offence to defence missions- upon which you can build a base to stop the alien horde.

There is also a survival mode with 6 maps, where you destroy wave after wave of incoming aliens. Compete with local and global (gamecenter) high scores.

Earn in-game money with every battle you fight, or even achievement you earn. You can spend on upgrading your weapons by buying different components. There are 7 different upgradable parts, this means you can completely customise your gun and armour to suit your style of play.

There are over 70 different items and components in the game with which to do this; including 17 core weapons which range from standard rifles to flame-throwers and rocket launchers: Make a fast firing sniper rifle with exploding rounds, or a deadly powerful shotgun with a bayonet for close encounters!


-Main 10 mission story-driven campaign, narrated by graphic novel style illustrations.

-Over 70 items/components with which to customise your armoury.

-6 Different survival maps with GameCenter high scores.

-27 GameCenter achievements which earn you in-game money.

-A mixture of action and tower defence style gameplay.

What's New in Version 1.34

-IMPORTANT: I've decided to release Planet Wars for free. I owe a huge thankyou to those who did buy it, but sales are too low for me to justify keeping it as a paid game.

If you've purchased this game in the past then as a thank you your game will add an extra 10,000 in-game credits with this update for shiny new equipment. The game will now display a quick ad when you launch the game (there are no ads during gameplay)-- if you own the game and would prefer this not to happen, please ignore this update.

-You can now also earn in-game credits through TapJoy.

-Updated to fill screens on all iOS devices.

This game is great!

This game is great, the sprites are well drawn and work perfectly. Gameplay is intense and fun and is a great time killer. I have had this game for about a week now and I have not gotten bored yet, and I have ADHD! Things I think you should add though, More maps to play on, like a Forest or Volcano map. You should also add more things to use to build your base, like mounted turrets you could use( you have to pay credits to use) and more AIs. You could also make the maps bigger to include more walls. I also think you should have more customizable parts, such as customizing your AI partners tool box so you can make the ultimate Bug killing team. Also possibly Vehicles? (although I know that is a big stretch so :P)
I am also glad to be your first reviewer. If you were to stop changing the game now, I would be fine. (Although incredibly sad, I would still play) Oh yeah and before I go, maybe in the far far future, co-op survival?


I love this game! I wish there were more games like this! I love how the game looks drawn, but well drawn, I also love the enemies you face, and the set up you given; in some levels to defend from enemy hordes. Love the weapons and abilities you get if you want, I have just beaten the game hope they come out with a new version and keep the same format, and fighting style, but with more aliens and maybe with new units, and be able to play co-op with a friend! That would be the best! Wish there were more games like this! Thanks for the great game!

This Game Is Awesome, Still Needs Some New Updates.

Dear Cole-Powered Games,

Planet Wars is the best Shooter-Strategy indie game ever made, Its like Starship Troopers meets Angry Birds.

Well done, but however, recent reports of glitches & bugs in this game, must be taken into account.

When I play a level in either Main Campaign Mode or Survival Mode, the game both freezes and crashes, please fix this terrible in-game flaw.

Please also enable the support for
Bluetooth/IOS7, D-Pad Controller Hardware, in the Option section within the Main Menu screen.

Including this new option will give players a better choice in which way they would like to play the game, without having to only rely on a touch screen controller, known as Control Sticks.

I pray you'll have the chance to take care of this big problem that the game Planet Wars is facing.

Thank You and Good Luck!

Planet Wars
