App description: Bounce asteroids off, fight with robots, the salvation of civilization is up to you!

After wars called Mechanical only 8000 people survived. They took refuge on a small planet safely hidden inside a large asteroid field. The shelter of mankind was created in advance and equipped with a unique system of planetary protection "Thor". In one of its projections the system resembles by its shape Mjllnir the god Thor's hammer, which determined its name. Rotating around an axis of the planet the protection system repels all attacks, with no damage.

First, the new Commander has to repel asteroid attacks, the game at this stage is contrary to Arkanoid having as the objective to prevent falling of an asteroid close to the populated areas of the planet. Later, the system will be equipped with the Battle platform. Now "Thor" not just silently beats asteroids back but can also "answer" with a plasma charge. Also, the battle platform allows to expand the armor, which is able to cover the entire planet by a protective circle. Unlike the system "Thor", the armor gets damaged and must be constantly renewed. Good news our hammer protects the armor that is directly above it against damage and moreover gradually mends it. Now the gaming style has changed: we need to shoot down small asteroids (for big ones the weapon is yet too weak) and continuously monitor the state of the armor defending and mending its weak segments.

Unfortunately, over time, the planet will be discovered by a scout of Axiom a formation of robots. This will signal the beginning of massive attacks on the planet. It should be noted that the game has no fixed waves of enemy attacks; depending on the success of a player and the level of population of the planet, Axiom estimates for itself the level of threat from mankind and each time re-determines the time of the next attack and the makeup of the fleet. We will be attacked by different types of enemy ships, each requires its own tactics and knowledge of vulnerable sides. So the game constantly adjusts the difficulty level to the player rewarding skillful ones more generously.

The main task of the Commander will be to study new types of armor, to improve the battle platform and to constantly expand the power grid. Three types of weapons: plasma gun, volley gun and ray gun will be at our disposal. First two can be used in the single shooting mode, in the automatic mode and in the accumulative mode (firing a ball of energy that's the more powerful, the longer it is charged up). Firing energy is determined by the player and the capabilities of the energy system.

The goal of the game is to reach the level of population sufficient for survival: 111 million people. The command of the project will put the objectives from the Survival plan before the Commander by following which one can succeed. A player may follow his own way but in this case it will be difficult for him to complete his mission successfully.

I got to play a bit of the late beta already and the game kicks ass. A bit of an inverse break out (as opposed to using the paddle to keep the ball in, you're using your paddle to keep the bad stuff out) with a decent variety of upgradeable bits and a clever scoring system that discourages simply trying to milk an easy level for points.

Not to mention, it's from the developer of TowerLand, Jury Shortki.

I'll buy that for a dollar.

Gameplay video available?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Of course, try to use the YouTube link above. The video had been captured from the game and the intro will end at 1:20, so you can skip it.

This is commercial secret but, I think, not less then two-three days. In any case, I took care of your case

Would you folks kindly quit pointing out really cool looking games, especially when they are only $0.99 and therefore irresistibly priced for me? I've spent about $10 beyond the double-my-usual-budget overspending spree I've already gone on.

Bought, and downloading now. Will try it out later. Too many good games of late.
