Phoenix HD is the best looking shoot'em up that everyone can enjoy! Enjoy the marvelous action and rise to the challenge at your own pace in this action packed game. Phoenix HD is a modern arcade game with intense action and brilliant graphics, where every playthrough is different. Some of our unique features include:
* Amazing Visuals – 60 Frames Per Second of pure awesome!
Our in-house developed Flare engine provides the ability to display thousands of bullets and particles at the same time, while still maintaining a rock solid framerate at 60 frames per second. This makes Phoenix one of the most spectacular shoot 'em ups available for everyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
* Procedurally Generated Content
The procedural content generator can create hundreds of thousands of enemy variations. Combined with the adaptive AI director, no single game will be the same.
* Regional High Score Ladders and Game Center Support
Phoenix can use location information to build regional high scores rankings, so you can compare scores with other players in your vicinity. Become the best player in your city, province, country and continent!
* Plenty of Weapons and Power-ups
Both the player and the enemies have a large variety of different weapons at their disposal, each with their own characteristics. Alongside the weapons there are a plethora of power-ups to provide that extra edge needed to overcome the hardest challenges.
What's New in Version 2.2
* A new ship: The Striker!
Shooting a lot of missiles is always awesome, and the Striker delivers exactly that! Hold down your finger to let the Striker automatically lock on all targets on the screen, then release your finger to fire the missiles. Repeat until no enemy is standing in your way. Holding down for a longer time improves the locks so stronger missiles will be fired. Can you hold your fire long enough to lock the level 3 missiles? The Striker is available via in-app purchase.
* Full Game Controller Support
This update improves support for iOS 7 Game Controllers. Use the right triggers to use the current held power-up. Press the 'A' button to perform a special action (Phantom Ghost Mode, Striker Fire Missiles), and hold the 'B' button to amplify the inputs of the joysticks for quick dodging.
* Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina
Phoenix HD now runs at Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina.
Now 7 Amazing Ships!
The Striker ship is a devastatingly powerful ship! Like the Shogun & Ghost(IIRC), it doesnt require upgrades. Bottom line... its a great ship which makes this already awesome shmup even awesomer! it feels like a true Arcade game that peeps wouldve lined up to play back in the quarter-munching days! outstanding, timeless game here... seriously folks.
This game is fluid & highly impressive even on iOS 6 !! The Striker is not quite as difficult to use as I prefer but it's certainly not easy. It is high powered which is good for quick stage progression.
This a wonderful game, but if you had already purchased the "unlock all ships", you should be able to get the striker (or any new ship in the future) by restoring the purchase. I'm not sure if this is a bug or done on purpose, but it hinders the game slightly.
