Helion Lite - Out NOW!

From the farthest reaches of space, Helion is finally making the journey to your iPhone/iPod Touch screen!

While a throwback to the simplistic addictive fun of arcade games, Helion is a modern-day visual treat, with lush artwork, BRDF shading and particle effects pushing the device hardware to the limit.

Helion also makes use of the multitouch interface to grant the player deft control of his ship, making it so simple that newcomers can get right into the action.

With 18 stages with full 3D backgrounds, over 20 enemies of all shapes and sizes, 7 destructive and tactical powerups, and 9 original music tracks, there's rarely a dull moment as you battle your way to the frenzied finish.

The impact is imminent, so brace yourself for the hit.

Here are some screenshots
