Default Review: Cosmic Nitro Provides Fun No-Depth Tap Shooter

Phil is known for his sci-fly battle of the planets game Galcon so itís no surprise that the majority of his games have focused on that genre. Cosmic Nitro follows that theme with a Missile Command-type game. While the game is not particularly deep, the graphics are great, and the gameplay involves tapping the various invaders heading towards the planet.

On the top of the screen are several gauges: a healthbar (indicated by %), number of enemies destroyed, and number of shields. Cosmic Nitro has two modes: Invasions and Apocalypse. Invasions has 9 levels: Astro Blast, Comet Crash, Scouting, Fire Storm, Martian Bomb, Toxic Inferno, Area 51, BioHazard, and Cosmic Hurl. Each level is unlocked so you can choose whichever level you want to play. Apocalypse is more of survival mode where your goal is to score as many points as you can before the planet is destroyed.

In Invasions mode, a timer is shown at the bottom, and basically your goal is destroy as many enemies as you can while protecting the planet. In Apocalyse mode, the timer upwards and your goal is to beat your previous high score. You can secure additional shields (denoted by S) and you activate them by swiping the screen. The scoreboard lists high scores by date and level.

Cosmic Nitro visually looks and sounds great, and frankly I would choose this over the iTunes Missile Command. However, the game is not very deep. If you set your expectations and want a straightforward tap shooter, Cosmic Nitro is not a bad choice. What the game could use is some variety in terms of weapon options and possibly even unlockable levels.
