In FlipShip, your goal is deceptively simple: tilt your device to move towards enemies of the same color, then let your ship’s automatic firing function take care of the rest. But watch out! Destroying enemies will raise your combo, but it won’t score you points. For that you’ll need to tap the screen, “flipping” your ship into its opposite color and flipping your enemies from predators to prey. Of course, “flipping” also reduces your combo back to zero, so you’ll want to see just how long you can hang on without tapping that screen.
Should you “flip” or should you flee? Score now or hold on for the promise of even bigger rewards?
In FlipShip, the choice is yours.
* Intuitive tilt-based gameplay keeps you in control, no matter how intense the action gets.
