App description: The Alpha Swarm is here and it's up to you, our limbless alien traitor hero, to stop them!

Imagine if the best aspects of action platformers and artillery games managed to have a beautiful theoretical baby. That hybrid baby would then go on to make love to a strategy game, and the result would be the awesomeness that is Alpha Swarm.

The mechanics are unique, yet simple. After selecting the order you wish to use your abilities (ranging from jumping and jet packs to lasers and shotguns) you must eliminate all enemies from the level and navigate to the finish. The result is an adventure that will keep you guessing and deliver an experience unlike any other found on the app store.

Features
-----------------------------------
- Unlockable characters and weapons
- 60 missions
- 12+ types of abilities
- Game Center online leader boards
- 5 different enemies
- 3 star level performance rating system

NOTE: This is for 3rd gen and newer devices!

I'm glad you changed your mind! I wouldn't put this game in Angry Birds' genre, it's probably more of a platformer.

But I don't think I've ever seen a game like this on the App store, so even if you don't like it at least you've tried something new!
