Heavy Rockets is the coolest cave flyer shooter game on the planet. Fans of the classic game genre, will finally be able to enjoy this gravity defying treat with their modern iOS devices and later also with Mac OS X. The iOS version of Heavy Rockets will be released in Q2/2014. Visit heavyrockets.com for more information.
The graphic design of Heavy Rockets has been inspired by constructivist paintings and old school 2D vector graphic games.
In the Race mode, your job is just simply to fly through the race track as quickly as you can. Best lap times are rewarded with cool additional features and extra weapons, so hurry up! You can race against your own time, or against your friends time. In time shifted multiplayer mode, you will be able to see your friends lap re-created on the screen, and you can race against the ships ghost. Real time multiplayer mode is also available via shared wifi.
After achieving everything there is in the race mode, it´s time to head up to the battle field. The rules are simple, the last man flying is the winner. You can team up with friends or battle head to head with just one friend. You can have 2-4 players battling in the caves in teams of 1-3 players. Select your favorite weapons and blow your opponents to bits and pieces. Multiplayer battle takes place over a shared wifi.
Controlling your rocket in a hazardous environment is never easy. If this is you first cave flyer shooter experience, getting to know the controls can be a little tricky at first. But not to worry, with a little practice your rocket will be soon directed by millimeter precision to the desired locations, and you will be able to fly through the tracks with full speed. There are two sets of controls. One designed specially for iPhone, and one for iPad. In the OS X version, controlling is done with your keyboard.
