App description: Blast off on a desperate mission and become a star pilot for Alpha Squadron in Vortex Omega, a classic arcade shooter game! Jump into the front line of defense to protect your fleet against the enemy ufo's and asteroid bombardment. Collect satellites for power-ups to keep your shields strong and enable your most powerful weapon, the Nova Kis!

Upgrade to the X27 Phoenix ship with 2 wing mounted plasma cannons for extra fire power. This also allows you to save your level and offer a continue game button on the game start and game over screen so you can start where you left off.

Vortex Omega will take you back to the days of old arcades. The retro look of vintage games but with a feel for todays apps.

How the heck do you change directions?

The controls are not good at all. I love the concept and the graphics and everything about it except trying to figure out the controls. There are no options whatsoever.

Asteroids meets Gyruss? Sounds interesting.

I like Jerry Duff's name. I feel like he should be naming his games after himself. Like, this should be Jerry Duff's Vortex Omega. Kinda like Reiner Knizia's name is on his games.

I gave three and half stars to your favorite game.

Hi all!

The dev has updated the game and added a swipe control mechanism. You activate it while in the game with a little toggle in the upper left hand corner. I tried it out and it works nicely. It's a fun game. I paid to remove the ads and I paid for the ship upgrade. It was $3 well spent.

Go get the update people! It's an interesting mix up of asteroids and gyruss. I love the simple, clean art style.
