[prMac.com] Montreuil, France - Michael Ryssen today is pleased to announce the release of Satellite Assault 1.0 for iOS. Your goal is to survive in a deadly asteroid field by creating chain reactions to destroy them.
You only have your particle shield and your laser to defend yourself. If a rock hits your shield, it will explode and disable your shield. The shield will then slowly recharge itself. Attention, each time you fire a laser blast, you will lose 1 unit of shield. On the contrary, if you wait long enough without firing laser, your systems will be overloaded, which will give you access to the powerful ionised shield and lasers.
Objects destroyed by ionised systems will generate 3 deadly ionised fragments which can destroy other objects in a chain reaction pattern. The deeper the object is in the chain level, the more points it will give you.
If you take too much time to die, Zaadiq ship may appear, trying to destroy you quickly with its powerful protonic laser. You can control your ship by tilting your iDevice (using the gyroscope or the accelerometer for older iDevices), or by using the touch screen.
Most features of iOS 4.x are supported:
* Retina display
