[09/22/2009]: The game is finally submitted for AppStore review.
Blast through the streams of meteorites, pirates and parasites in this intense retro-style vertical space shooter, originally defeloped by TLK games.
You are a member of elite space unit, named Powermanga. Your objective is to clean up space from trash, meteorites, small parasites, runaway robots and pirate ships in order to allow safe passage through the region. You have powerful ships at your disposal with sophisticated weapon systems. The weapons must constantly be upgraded to match the ever increasing enemy hostility.
- 42 levels
- More than 200 enemies
- 14 powerful bosses (guardians)
- Sophisticated weapon upgrade system with hundreds of weapon/strength combinations.
- 3 different control schemes (tilt, swipe, finger-top)
How to play
+ Use you finger to navigate the ship.
+ The ship fires whenever you touch the main portion of the screen.
+ Kill as many enemies as you can.
+ Collect bonuses and powerups for your ship. + Tap the side panel to upgrade the ship
+ Shake to pause the game. (While in pause, tap the screen to continue).
There are 5 kinds of gems; each has a different power.
1 level ship powerup.
2 level powerup.
restores ship's energy. If the level is already at its maximum, a powerful circular shock wave is generated, destroying everything on it's path.
adds a protective satellite. If all 6 satellites are gathered, they attack the nearby enemies with powerful electrical shocks. The yellow jams also resore the energy of your existing satellites.
increase your score by multiplying it by 2 or 4.
Each new ship is more resistant and more powerful but aslo takes longer to repair. Every time you get a new ship all other options are downgraded by one level. The extra guns and orbital satellite protections are removed too. When the ship loses all of its energy supply, it's downgraded back to previous level and further down to the first basic vessel with which you start the game.
This option restores part of the energy supply of the vessel. It can be useful for the large powerful vessels which take a long time to be serviced.
Is a very practical option to boost the mobility of the ship.
Rear fire shot
Basic: a classical shot from the rear of the vessel.
Enhanced: an infrared guided missile shot from the rear of the vessel.
Right fire shot
Basic: a classical shot from the right of the vessel.
Enhanced: an infrared guided missile shot from the right of the vessel.
Left fire shot
Basic: a classical shot from the left of the Space Ship.
Enhanced: A guided missile shot from the left of the ship.
Front fire shot
Basic: a classical shot from the front of the Space Ship.
Enhanced: A guided missile shot from the left of the vessel.
If you collect a green or a red gem and go beyond the purchase price of a new ship, you will get an extra gun. (up to 2 total)
The first ship is the basic patrol vessel that you will pilot at the start of the adventure. It is neither very resistant nor powerful. Its enhanced shots are not infrared guided as are the salves of the other ships. When you get a new ship you receive a more powerful, more resistant ship doted with a higher firepower. Nevertheless, all the other options are downgraded by one level. If you had before any protection satellites or any guns, they will be lost.
The energy gauge
The energy level of the ship increases as the time goes. It will take as more time to complete as the vessel is powerful. Small ships refill faster. As soon as the energy gauge of a player shows empty, the player loses its ships and is downgraded to the ship he had previously. When the player loses the initial vessel, the game is over. The winning strategy is to aim getting steadily the most powerful Spaceship.
They shoot continuously. To get a gun you must collect at least 12 green gems (11 to get a new ship and one for a gun). Guns can be destroyed. A vessel cannot have more than two guns simultaneously.
You get them by collecting the yellow gems. They gravitate around your vessel and protect you from hostile shots. They destroy any hostile ship simply by hurting it. Just like the guns, the satellites can be destroyed. You can get up to 5 satellites around you. When you get the possibility to get a 6th, the satellites already installed get the power to launch powerful electrical discharges on the enemies at each of our shots.
