Defend tiny, peaceful cities from menacing enemy clouds. Your weapon is your finger; It has the power to deflect anything these angry clouds drop.

Tap the meteors to send them back toward the clouds and ultimately destroy them. Drag your finger over multiple objects to deflect many with one swipe. Find hidden eggs and collect their falling gems to boost your city’s health. The more clouds you destroy, the faster and trickier they will become; And so must your fingers.

Test your reflexes with intense, fast-paced arcade action. Beat 9 insanely difficult levels; Defend 9 minimalist 3d isometric cities.

- many different types of meteors to deflect
- power-ups that boost your deflection power
- realistic physics simulation
- charmingly animated mini-cities

great game!

i bought this when it was released a month ago. thought it was a good value then, now its FREE!

this was my post back when it was launched:

I dig this game. its got retro flavor. love simple raw style of the objects. i guess its called low poly. music is fresh...basically hip hop with chip sounds

the game is really fast-paced. starts off slow but builds before you know it your city is destroyed. frantic, twitchy replay kind of gameplay. good controls, just swipe and tap things. ads don't bug me

I wanted to get to level 3 before posting this review, but i'm having trouble...that @#%$ tornado! how do i get past it.. nothing in the how section. its hard enough to get TO it, haha. i'll keep trying

Thanks, Sexy Pirate!

You can unlock all levels by beating them ...if you can. No iap purchase necessary.

Ads only show when you lose a level, never during gameplay.

cheers,

@Sexy Pirate the ads in this game are very non-obtrusive. As far as I'm concerned, if it's not distracting me during the actual gameplay it's a pretty good deal. I wasn't crazy about the pricing model before this was free, but as it stands the game is really cool, unique, and well worth the iaps imo

@zxy it seems like people are confused by the unlock game iap. you don't really explain anywhere (except comments) that the levels are "beatable" without having to pay. maybe an update with a clearer description would be helpful.

or maybe just remove that iap? just a thought...

Yeah Sometimes minimalism is too...minimal haha

It definitely needs to be clearer that you don't HAVE to pay or else just get rid of that iap...I originally thought some people might actually want to have that option if they couldn't advance by playing

Will push an update soon and resolve that somehow

Try to beat this game

Great adrenaline rush, reflex-testing, futuristic retro arcade game, simple to play but damn tough to beat...takes really learning the level to beat. Can be discreetly played with one hand in meetings. Beautiful graphics, silly animations, fun!

I'm on level 4

Haha thanks M75, you must be my biggest fan. It's like flight of the conchords...

Congrats on making it to level 4. That is no small feat.
