One thing is for certain: you'll never get the feeling while playing Phoenix that the screen could use a few more bullets.

A new enemy ship has been added, the Brute! This large class enemy moves around at considerable speed and fires its unique new split-shot turrets.
* New Alpha Strike
The close range lightning weapon from the Shogun has been added as a new Alpha Strike. Twelve Tesla Coil projectiles are launched, shooting lightning at enemies everywhere!

The 'Friends' and 'Achievements' buttons are now accessible from the Main Main. The ability to mute sound effects and music separately have been added and moved to the settings screen.
Celebrating the year of the Dragon we have added full simplified Chinese translation to the game (except for these patch notes), enjoy!

Lots of tweaks to improve performance as well as visual quality.
App DescriptionAnyone can rise to the challenge in this action packed shoot'em up. Phoenix is a modern arcade game with intense action and brilliant graphics, where every playthrough is different. Some of our unique features include:
* Dynamic Difficulty – fun for everyone!
Phoenix is a challenging game that adapts its difficulty to the player skill, making it exciting for players of all skills. The adaptive AI director ensures the game provides a fair challenge for everyone, by changing the difficulty while playing.
