Pew Pew Planet is a space-based shooter that sees you controlling a fleet of 'Guardian' spaceships to push back against the alien hordes. After being announced late last year, the game is now available as a free-to-play title for both iOS and Android.

The basic idea is that you need to time your blasts to hit the aliens as they circle around a planet. Controls are simple, requiring you to tap the screen to fire your ship's weapons. It's very casual and easy to get into.

The combat is complicated slightly by the addition of power-ups and a rapid-fire mode called 'Hyper Mode'. You'll start out with a fairly basic arsenal before unlocking fun boomerangs and other such weird weaponry. Wisely utilising every mechanic and tactic available to you is a great way to earn yourself a spot on the daily leaderboards.

While flying around, you'll need to carefully avoid bumping into any stray bombs and the planet itself. There are collectables to hunt down and earn, and you'll unlock new ships as you continue to progress. There are over 30 of them at launch.

If you fancy the look of Pew Pew Planet, you'll find it available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play.
