Phoenix HD - A Modern Arcade Shmup (by Firi Games)





Phoenix hd is on the nz appstore now!
Wow wow wow! I didn't thought it would be that great but there IS no turning back from that hd experience. The 60 fps framerate is amazing and the new effects and backgrounds are jaw dropping... I hope that firi finally get the attention they deserve by going free because this is the best shmup available on the appstore.
Small things i would have liked: a full screen version because, as of now, there are black borders on the edge of the screen on my ipad. But i assume this as something to do with the retina resolution on the 4th gen being smaller. Oh and the sound of the bosse's explosion is not loud enough but that's just a small rant
Anyway you know what to do now and i can't wait to see the next game from you guys

Find me on Twitter

I would like to see the topic of drones that fall from the sky at random times or fixed intervels if possible.

Jawohl. Except from Raiden4.

Another thing I like is how enemy ships look like recognizable sci fi ships, e.g. One looks like a Romulan Warbird. An enterprise, galactica, Klingon, star destroyer etc. A rotating base ship (bsg) would be cool too.

To each his own, the Trinity and the Corsair are the most popular and accessible ships. Be sure to tap the video icon in the Ship Selection screen to see a short clip of the ship in action.


I might just add a missile drone, coz well, drones are cool and missiles are cool.
