Blue Attack! promises a great shooting experience

Developer: John Kooistra
Price: $1.99 [Buy]

So is Blue Attack! just another shooter? No! Earlier in November, John Kooistra released Blue Defense!, and now follows its sequel called Blue Attack!, featuring the Blue Attacksame war between the red and blue forces.

You control a blue ship based on a carrier, which you must defend. In such as is the case, you have to navigate away from the carrier frequently, locate and destroy thr red forces. On your mission, the game allows you to adopt wingmen, which constantly follow you in a chosen formation, adding to your firepower. Of course, the game isn’t just plain shooting, because using bombs and force blasts also form a major part of the game.

Blue Attack! has both accelerometer and touch controls, which both work beautifully. Unlike traditional shooters though, Blue Attack! lets you navigate your ship in all directions, rather than on a left-to-right movement idea.

The single best part of the game is the ship upgrade system. As you constantly advance, you can upgrade your ship with loads and loads of upgrades. At the end of each level, you earn resources, which you can spend later on upgrades. For example, you can buy more bombs and ships (lives). Some other upgrades are those to increase your ship’s speed, acceleration, handling and firepower.

Combined with a great price, fantastic gameplay, good sound and high replayability, Blue Attack! is a highly recommended game.
