Most players are looking for games that give out great gaming experience. Some games will try to impress their players with their visual effects or try to hold their player’s interest with their cool weapon upgrades, sound and visual effects and other elements that covers some of the game’s flaws.
Just this March 2012 Violet Storm ($0.99 via iTunes) was launched by Sad Sat Software. This game is a dual-stick shooter ship with upgrade weapons and excellent visuals. Yet the game is just the usual galaxy game where in you just have to shoot the alien ships, upgrade weapons, earns points and our favorite 1UP bonus. Playing this game reminds me of the old school Galaga, the only difference is I already have the dual stick shooter and the neon-glow graphics are awesome (you might find it a little crazy due to the visual is a bit over stimulating).
WHAT IS IN THE GAME…?
Violet Storm gives you three game modes (all are in single –player mode). Players can choose from these three single-players modes:
Sniper Mode: Your need to be good in accuracy in this mode and you really have to shoot fast because it is a timed run game and it is scored by accuracy, so you better be fast and sure that you hit your target very well.
Speed Havoc: In this game mode you must be quick in finishing a bunch of enemies. Your eyes must be very sharp so you can hit your enemy’s ship as fast as you can or else say good bye to your dual-stick shooter ship. The visuals may confuse you a bit but as you go along you will get used to it.
Campaign: Love the never ending onslaught from your enemy’s fighting ships. You will be fighting enemy’s ships by waves, finish one wave at a time and you have a brake in every wave you finish. It becomes more difficult as each level is completed, more enemy ships wave after wave.
Don’t be overwhelmed, your enemies will try to come as close as they can and you will end up cramming in one corner where enemies can trap you and of course you lose health or you lose the game.
UPGRADES AND BONUS POINTS:
As you defeat your enemies ships you will also get bonus points like damage boost, bombs, power up and weapon upgrades (well you won’t be getting them a lot you know, you have to work hard for it)
Weapons can be upgraded from your standard dual-stick shooter ship you can upgrade it to multi-tracking beams of lasers and homing missiles which shoots simultaneously.
Yet weapons can be upgraded but the visuals will surely over dazzle the players. It confuses you when you use the homing missile bombs or the laser beams. I ended shooting everywhere even without shooting any ships. The background music is a bit repetitive and it sometimes bugs me when e whenever the enemy ships are increasing their numbers. But still that is how I find the game and we do have our own opinions.
