IGN’s Action Game of the Year is now available for your iPad!
The premier sci-fi FPS on iPad takes full advantage of the device’s capabilities for optimal fluidity and staggering graphics, creating the most impressive gaming experience to date.
With Earth no longer able to sustain life, huge artificial satellites called “near-orbitals” were constructed for people to live on. To protect themselves, the near-orbitals banded together to form N.O.V.A., the Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance. Now, a strange threat has emerged from the darkness of space. A Marine ship, reported missing just a week ago, has suddenly reappeared and is headed directly for the near-orbitals, ignoring all communications. Against his will, retired Marine hero Kal Wardin is forcefully returned to active duty to prevent mankind's annihilation.
Get ready for unparalleled action on the iPad!

What's New in Version 1.0.7
Compatible with iOS 5.0.1
Boring, not the game I thought it would be.
This is just another cookie cutter created game were you are led around by the nose (i.e. go here, go here, go here) and run over weapons recharges every 20 seconds. Yawn. This is boring. How about just saving me all the effort and making a demo mode that plays the game for you while you watch? Because I feel I'm manually controlling demo mode playing it how the developers intended.
I want to go explore on my own and do what I want, not just follow a pre determined path of accomplishing everything. All I'm doing is running down a tunnel which has two directions, straight ahead and behind me. Jeeze I could make a game like this. Where is the fun??? There's no skill. It's not like you can hide and shoot when you see a bit of an enemy, no you have to run right into the "active engagement area" of the enemy for it to register hits or become a playable character.
Just finishing the Rainbow Six Shadow Vanguard game on iPad I wanted something fun like that game. This wasn't it. I wish you could get refunds on games. Instead I'll just delete it and do something else. I guess this game appeals to males who are 16 and younger.
This a great game for any Halo fan! Much like it in many ways!
There is a glitch, but it is very easy to fix it...
1. Q: how do I fix the problem when someone repeats the last few words they say?
A: this is a common problem in a game like this, but it is easy to fix.
Hit the pause button once the person has finished what they are saying, then resume the game once u pause it.
In other words, great FPS for any player. Just start the game on nor,on normal difficulty, because easy is JUST 2 easy! BUY THIS GAME!
Ok but needs major fixes
Ever character cannot stop repeating the last word it is so annoying fix it NOW!!!!!!!! Other than that they need to add more controls options and play with friends over Game Center would be nice but is not necessary just fix the characters plz that's all I ask.( needs to be updated badly)
