App description: Beyond Helios is a modern take on the retro space shooters found in arcades long ago. Your goal is to clear as many of the randomly generated battlefields as possible before all the ships in your squadron are taken out. A new battlefield is generated after each one you clear, so the game goes on as long as you can survive, but be careful the battles get more chaotic and dangerous as you progress. Completing zones earns you gems which you can use to buy effects and upgrades for your ship, allowing you to go even farther and keep increasing your high score!

** Support for fullscreen on the iPhone X **
** Support for MFi controllers and gamepads **

Key Features
- Infinte procedurally generated battlefields.
- Fun retro graphics and sounds.
- Challenging and intense space battles.
- Multiple difficulties to suit the level of challenge you desire.
- Competition for high score on the leaderboards.
- Currency rewards for beating levels.
- In-Game shop to spend those rewards on upgrades.
- Absolutely no advertisements to interrupt your gameplay experience.

I don't know exactly what that entails. The game is a single player game that saves your data to your iCloud account so you can play on any of your devices. So as long as MiFi connects you to the internet the game should be fully functional! Hope this helps.

By MiFi I meant the ability to play the game with external game controllers. A lot of action games are more fun to play if you don't have to use virtual joysticks. You might look into it -- it's usually pretty easy to add that functionality.

Ah I understand the confusion. I think you meant to say MFi not MiFi lol. Right now it does not have support for external controllers but that is a functionality I might add soon, thank you for the feedback, I hope you enjoy the game!

Just curious, any chance of alternate control options like relative touch/dragging your ship with your finger and shooting with the right side of the screen?
