Shapes & Sound: The Shape Shooter ~ Android Exclusive

That's right, Android has at least one exclusive game.
Play Store link

Its a fun game with great art and sounds.
"Think Rock-Paper-Scissors meets Asteroids... the central shape is able to switch on the fly in order to be effective against other enemy types."

YouTube: video

The menu UI is too small for phones and it takes longer than I like to boot up but that doesn't ruin the game at all.
Check it out!

I can vouch for this game. It's really fun. Simple concept, but it gets pretty crazy quickly.

Thanks for the recommendation - will look into it!

How do you control it? Accelerometer? Touch to go? On-screen buttons?

Your shape in the screen center is stationary, you fire projectiles at incoming shapes by tapping where you want to shoot. You change shapes by swiping. If you are the same shape as object coming at you, it is absorbed rather than dealing damage to you.
