The most immersive and impressive sci-fi FPS franchise on smartphones is back! Fight for mankind's survival in the greatest space shooter on mobile devices!

Four months have passed since Kal ruined the Volterites' plans by sabotaging their war factories, and stopping the extraction of the Judger Artifacts. However, following the assassination of President Folsom, the government surrendered the colonies to the Volterite Protectorate in order to prevent civil war amongst the increasingly pro-Volterite citizens.
Kal Wardin has been laying low since Folsom’s death, but now he has received a desperate plea from Yelena to come to Earth. Once again, the hero must rise to save mankind!

• An epic storyline: Humanity finally returns to Earth after years of exile! Fight in 10 immersive levels across the galaxy, from a war-torn Earth to a frozen Volterite city.

Great game. Now I'm stuck at something...

A few hours ago, I turned on High Resolution in Advance settings just to see how it works. So then I went to multiplayer, as the loading screen is done and I just have to move, the problem is, I can't. Even if I am touching the screen, tapping attack button or whatever power-up, it won't work. The only button working is the settings in-game. I tried to turn the HR (High Resolution) from there. But there wasn't any. So I left the game. But as I do that, I have difficulty on interacting the buttons. Even if your tapping them, it won't respond. (Even though the background is moving). So I closed the game, and opened it again. I had difficulty, DIFFICULTY, on tapping the Settings button. As I found a way to go to the Settings menu, I tapped Advance (with difficulty of course). And when I reached the Advance Menu, The On button on the HR just won't respond!!!! I am not gonna re-download it because I will finish the game soon. Please fix this bug. I know Gameloft can fix it. As soon as you read this review, FIX IT FAST!!!


Guys about the retry downloading stuff, I know that feeling guys... I downloaded this and said retry download for about 5 times, and I just downloaded it again and finally after 6 hours of download I have it now. So please don't give up downloading this game cuz its freakin awesome.

Super awesome but.....

This game is so awesome,because the graphics is so awesome,the campaign is pretty long but most of the time I experience bugs and glitches. The bug happens most of the time When its like the last 60 seconds of a level. The bug is you suddenly fall past the ground, i have to restart the whole level. That's what i totally hate about the game, thats why my ratings is only 2 stars. I wish the bugs will be fixed in the next update
