[Alien Strike]

Date: Nov 2009
Tags: iPhone :: games :: Objective-C

Alien Strike was an addictive copter shooter game sold on iTunes during 2009 and 2010, where you flew a UFO and fought against the futuristic Earth. The movement was controlled by holding a finger on the screen in order to go up, while the default UFO movement was to fall down. Player had the ability to shoot and drop bombs to watch the earthlings explode.



The main features included:
  • Various types of enemy aircrafts, houses, factories and airports to destroy
  • Two weapon types: plasma guns and bombs
  • Life-saving power-ups: new bombs, health packs and empowered missiles
  • Randomly generated world, which made each game different
  • 'Total Destruction' mode where there were many enemies generated in the world but the UFO could not be damaged
  • Interactive game settings where the user could choose the UFO colour adjust left- or right-handed controls and do other things during the game, i.e. without the need to restart.
