ok now where do i shoot the ball....oh wait its not a pinball game for once ;-)

So i played roughly hour of the game so far, and to sum it up its a Soul Heroes set in space plus some Marvel Alliance 2 mixed in as well for good measure.

The Player start of with two pilots and take on alien attacking ships.

With each win the player can get parts to upgrade his/her squadron fighters, bombers, tugs etc once again very Soul Heroes.

Like Alliance 2 the player's ships come with specific weapons that do various damage so some forward planning in when to use the weapon and at what point is the key to winning the dogfight.

Like Soul Heroes a player has two chests one that opens 5 times a day and the premium which requires currency to open or of course the player can wait.

Of course there is a timer which is the form of oil, so stopping a player rushing through the game.

Plus not forgetting VIP leveling which seems to go hand in hand with these types of games.

I still have to unlock combat Area, Allies (i suspect a clan type thing), challenges and operations.

So once again if you like Soul Heroes then you will be right at home, otherwise i don't know if this game will keep people interested for long.

Thanks for looking into it. I love the IP and the idea of the game. But I just don't need another energy/timer/currency/upgrade app on my device. I think I'm burned out of good IPs getting this treatment. Nothing against Zen, though. Looks like they made it look and work great, like all of the pinball tables I've purchased.

Give It a Chance

I'll be the first to give this a seal of approval.

It's nicely done. If you like Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, you'll like this. It's very similar, but with ships and some minor tweaks.

The IP isn't quite as strong as the mighty Star Wars, but the game is polished and the graphics are stunning.

Get started today, I'm level 5 already!
