Vertical shooters are somewhat of a favorite of mine and everytime a new one becomes available for my phone, I love testing them out. The latest to grace the app store is an app called Phoenix. Itâ€™s a vertical shooter that brings a super-intense experience to the device for an extremely cheap price. Unlike most vertical shooters, Phoenix does not follow a set story or carefully crafted level experience. Instead, every battle is generated on the spot with the game creating custom enemies and powerups as you play through the game. This means each encounter is going to be different. There also is no set end.
The app is more of a survival mode that challenges you to see just how far you can make it through before ultimately being destroyed. The visuals are excellent and it prides itself on being able to run on every iOS device available.. even the original iPhone. Thatâ€™s quite the feat and it really does run amazing. Scores are tracked and can be compared locally, statewide, nationwide, and worldwide.
At the time of this review I was ranked 6th in my state and plan on getting better. Definitely check this out.
