If you liked Geometry Wars or Super Stardust, you'll love this! Nano Fighter is a fast paced dual-controller game that puts you at the helm of your own microscopic vessel. Your goal is simple: destroy as many parasites, viruses and alien invaders as you can without losing your ship. Pilot your way around the swarms and rip them apart with your plasma gun!
For the current version (2.0) there are 70 unique levels and unlimited random ones providing hours of gameplay! There are many kinds of critters you must battle and unlock as you proceed through the levels. During the game you must look for weapon, shield and bomb upgrades to help you along. Every five levels you pass you will unlock a "warp" so that you can start from that point if you were to be destroyed. You can also leave the game at any point and continue from where you left off. Build up a high score by sustaining a score multiplier. See where you stack up against the world with the simple one step online registration. Are you good enough to climb to the top of the lists?
The graphics in Nano Fighter are crisp and clean. You navigate your vessel around in a dark gloomy world, until the battle begins. Critters of all sorts come at you from all angles. As you blast through them with your plasma weapons, their destruction brilliantly lights up the screen, making it a pleasant experience and adding to the excitement and pace of the game. Firing off a bomb slows down time and creates an amazing green ring of destruction that spreads and demolishes anything in its path!
The sounds of destruction are specially picked and tuned to provide that sense of accomplishment. The explosions create a pleasant crisp and powerful sound that make you want to destroy more and more, simply to hear it again.
The music is fitting and futuristic and plays in the background, just loud enough to set the mood, but not distract you from your mission. (you can also disable the music if you decide to)
We spent a long time optimizing the controls so that we can provide the best and most responsive gaming experience you can get on an iPhone / iPod Touch. You fly your vessel with the left wheel, and control the direction of fire with the right. As you rotate the wheels your thumbs tend to take up large parts of the screen, so we decided the best way to solve this problem was to seamlessly shift the central location of your ship away from your thumbs, giving you the best visibility you can get at all times! There is a training mode provided for those who have never played a game of this kind.
We've created a simple and quick online scoring system. If it's your first time submitting online scores you'll be prompted for your name. That then gets associated with your device so no messing around with passwords or emails. Your world rank is based off of your highest local score.
One neat feature is the ability to change your name whenever you want, giving you a way to rub your high score in other player's faces. ;-)
With future updates we are planning more vibrant graphics and backgrounds, and many more unique levels.
