[Updated: Submitted] Critical Wave, Dual Stick madness, by Grannies-Games!



Hey everyone!

Introducing Critical Wave, an intense new dual stick shooting experience.


Youtube link | Pop Up

HIGH QUALITY download

Critical Wave is an arcade survival game involving large swarms of enemies, huge boss fights and most importantly a vast amount of fun.

A vividly coloured and very sharp looking game, Critical Wave was made with the philosophy that variety is the spice of life and gaming. Critical Wave does everything in its power to bring you a new type of dual stick shooter experience.
By mixing things up, Critical Wave doesn't get stale after a few minutes of shooting. Varying types of enemies with a range of abilities, a wide selection of powerups and upgrades, endless waves of enemies that try to keep you constantly on your toes and a Critical Wave with a special boss that grows larger and larger will have you coming back time and again.

The game features everything you have come to expect from games in the dual stick genre, and more:

- Upgrades,
- Powerups,
- Easy mode for the people looking for a smooth ride,
- Hard mode for those who like a real challenge,
- Integrated online leaderboards with real-time ranking,
- Wave upon wave of enemies,
- Mini-Bosses,
- Mega-Bosses,
- Explosions,
- Tons of Bullets,
- Quite likely the sharpest graphics to ever please your eyes on the iPhone,
- Loads of fun


Some screenshots:














The game has been submitted to the appstore and will hopefully be available next week!
The price will be $2.99

Let us know what you think!

Thanks for the compliments, a lot of effort went into making the graphics as smooth and pretty as possible. We didn't spend nine months on the game twiddling our thumbs
