What's New

-IMPORTANT: I've decided to release Planet Wars for free. I owe a huge thankyou to those who did buy it, but sales are too low for me to justify keeping it as a paid game.

If you've purchased this game in the past then as a thank you your game will add an extra 10,000 in-game credits with this update for shiny new equipment. The game will now display a quick ad when you launch the game (there are no ads during gameplay)-- if you own the game and would prefer this not to happen, please ignore this update.

-You can now also earn in-game credits through TapJoy.

-Updated to fill screens on all iOS devices.

App Description

Planet Wars is a top-down alien shooter with unique hand-drawn graphics, exciting action & strategy gameplay and completely customisable weapons!

Simple customisable controls make the game easy to pick up and play.

Play through the 10 mission campaign, with beautifully illustrated graphic novel style story panels. Missions range from offence to defence missions- upon which you can build a base to stop the alien horde.

There is also a survival mode with 6 maps, where you destroy wave after wave of incoming aliens. Compete with local and global (gamecenter) high scores.

Earn in-game money with every battle you fight, or even achievement you earn. You can spend on upgrading your weapons by buying different components. There are 7 different upgradable parts, this means you can completely customise your gun and armour to suit your style of play.

There are over 70 different items and components in the game with which to do this; including 17 core weapons which range from standard rifles to flame-throwers and rocket launchers: Make a fast firing sniper rifle with exploding rounds, or a deadly powerful shotgun with a bayonet for close encounters!
