Blockade - Line drawing games never looked this good!

For fans of line drawing games or space oriented games - Blockade is here to redefine the genre. With it’s stunning graphics and intuitive gameplay, Blockade is a game that is hard to put down.

Escape the police when smuggling cargo to and from the planet Angelhill, watch out for asteroids, minefields, "secret weapons" and above all - your other ships.

As a navigator for the underground smuggler company “Interstellar Cargo Transport and Navigation”, steer your ships in the right direction. Get your cargo - and escape through the portals. As a gamer, compete with the best of the best with AGON Leaderboards and complete the achievements - to show the world that you can get the job done.

***Blockade has now gone gold (sounds much better than "sent to App Store", right?) - and should be out very soon!***

Agreed. I have not been too interested in line drawing games of late - too stale for me - but this is rekindling my interest...

First you need to dock the ship to get cargo, before going through the jump gates. Some levels have police as well, and if you have cargo, they will want to catch you - if they do, you have to go back to get cargo again (not a good thing when you have too many ships on the screen!).

It's out!

It's out and truly awesome so far! Many cool twists in it's 8 included maps/scenarios (just like in games like Harbor Master, they're each endless survival situations with unique events and layouts) all included for a buck ($0.99)!
