John doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

Customer Reviews

Just like the rest


Most original space fighter games for iOS seem to have 1 thing in common, really bad dialog. This game is no exception.

Game play is alright but pretty easy. Didn't take me long to max out my upgrades either.

Okay play, terrible story/voice acting, easy.

Could be improved,


Not bad overall, decent looking, smooth controls (super important in this type of games).

Definitely suffer from some design issues though, object collision is going to happen because they can come from behind with no warning, or flip floping cameras causing disorientation and colliding with objects you were on course to avoid. A lot of enemies from behind, but no loop the loop to get around them so you need to wait until they get in front of you.

Would love to see maybe some more variety of upgrades, just 2 upgrades is kinda limited.

Interesting "choice" system, although the scoring system is a bit weird since the stars system isn't particularly useful when the players don't have much in ways of a objective list or briefing pre-mission.

Pretty solid, love the no IAP, but it does feel a bit light.

One big problem


Game is good but you can't play inverted on a controller like the moga or stratus. There is no option to change it. So down is down and up is up... Instead of up is down and down is up. Very crucial for an airplane game.
