An abstract dual-stick shooter with enough challenge to keep you coming back for more. Annihilate will test your skills from the beginning with increasingly aggressive and lethal enemies that have only one goal, your annihilation. You only have one weapon, a limited supply of bombs, and nowhere to run. How long will you survive? Can you reach the top of the leaderboards, or die in a geometrical nightmare? It's up to you.
The game features:
-The smoothest controls on any iOS dual-stick shooter
-2 game modes to choose from, Survival and Waves
-Extremely challenging gameplay with enemies that get more aggressive as the game progresses
-Supports retina iPhone, iPhone 5, and iPad displays
-Leaderboards and achievements through Game Center
-Support for the 60beat controller
-Full support of iOS multi-tasking. Pause and resume your game where you left it
-Keeps track of settings and stats for any Game Center account that plays on the device.
-Full support for playing your own iTunes music as you play the game
Fantastic game play
It is just another dual stick shooter, but a great one. Enemies are smart and try to gang up on you and its really fun to get tied up in a corner and barely acrape through and blast your way put. Controls are as smooth and fluid as iOS can provide, and I love that the challenge ramps up pretty fast.
This title would benefit greatly from a soundtrack...please god not generic techno or stupid dub-step like everyone else does, but something perhaps reminiscent of the 16-bit era...perhaps a song selection of 8 to 10 tracks that just loop on shuffle forever as you play. That would make this game really stand out among the rest, which many only offer 1 song that very monotonously loops forever.
As it is right now, it's just you and the game, with no music to cheer you on. I can see why the developer chose this route, but the fun gameplay would do well to have a sound track. Great game and fun! Thank you!
Control issue - Please Fix
One simple update could make it so much better...if the ship would stop moving when not steering with the left control stick.
I think that's how every other dual stick shooter works. Why does the ship always ave to be moving? I like to hover, it's more control and adds a basic dimension.
I do really like how it auto pauses when not using the controls. I will try playing again after an update.
Get this game
Why haven't you plunged into this fantastic twin stick shooter already!? I'll wait.....
OK, now that you've purchased the game you can see for yourself how fun it is. Smooth, frantic, polished gameplay.
