Skyforce Reloaded is a vertical shooter that has now made it's way to the Android phones. Popular on other phones the game is now looking to make a market for itself on Androids. Featuring everything one could expect from a vertical shooter including bossfights, crazy weapons and some precision dodging, Sky Force Reloaded looks to bring another great vertical shooter to the Android market.
Starting into the game, difficulties and ships are chosen and the player is thrown right into the action. The ship autofires for the player so the game is all about movement. Dragging a finger across the screen will control the ships direction and in turn, decide whether you stay alive or become just another piece of metal on the field. In order to clear a level, a certain percentage of that level must be destroyed. If that percentage is not met, the player will be forced to try again. Powerups and shield boosts can be picked up in the level to help with the player's near impossible task of destroying entire armies by themselves.
Overall, if you are a big fan of vertical shooters, Skyforce Reloaded is a no brainer. It plays well and has the chiptune soundtrack to prove it. Priced at a medium range in the Android Market , it may be worth it to check into the free version to see if it's a fit. It's a well made game that will keep you entertained for quite a while. I'd love to see some videos of people beating it on the hard difficulty.
