Our AppyHour staff was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak at Superplay Games’ Sky Defenders tilting game for iPhone and iPad. It just launched and while we take it for a super high-flying in-depth look, here’s some information to get you going. Of course, even before our full review… we already know it’s going to be a winner.
Description: Calling all heroes! The city is being invaded by an endless horde of evil robots, and it’s up to you to hold them off long enough for reinforcements to arrive. Collect fantastic power-ups to rack up huge point scores in your quest to survive and wipe out the opposing forces. Use the online leaderboard to show your friends that you are the ultimate hero! Cowards need not apply!
Key features of Sky Defenders include:
– Top-down Survival Gameplay: To dodge and defeat waves of enemies, superheroes and heroines must maneuver the skies, collect power-ups, and chain together combos in order to rack up points and survive as long as possible
– Motion Controls: Players control their superhero by tilting the iOS device. With precise acceleration and movement, players must hone their flying skill in order to boost their score and top the leaderboards
– Collectible Power-ups: Players can gain an extra edge in combat by collecting power-ups, which are unlockable by racking up big point totals or through in-game purchases
– Facebook Integration: Sky Defenders syncs with Facebook so players will be able to compete head to head with their friends on the game’s leaderboards.
