Star Blitz is a Freemium twin stick space shooter released by Glu.
If you own Gun Bros or Men vs Machines both titles by Glu, the immediate thing you will notice when you get this game is everything apart from the sound and graphics everything else is almost identical. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but please Glu can we had something new, not just ReSkins of very similar games.
The idea of the game is that the evil Alien Xeno Cluster is attempting to dominate the Arelon Prime, homeworld of the Galactic Coalition. You must take to the skys and combat them with your wing person.
As with all the other Glu games above, you select your character (which has very little bearing on the game) and then it is straight into the combat attack.
The basics of the game as to fight your wave through wave after wave of attacks, gaining iridium, which can then be turned into money to purchase weapons, ship parts and power ups. You can carry two weapons at a time, and can switch between them.
The game is controlled by the standard twin stick joysticks, with some on screen buttons to switch weapons etc.
The graphics and sound are very game. The artwork is well drawn with some nice character artwork.
On the upside:
- Solid twin stick shooter action
- Lots of Armour and Weapons to earn and buy. Including new ships.
On the downside:
- Very similar to Gun Bros, and not as much unlocked in this game yet.
- You will more than likely have to pay real cash to progress far into this game.
Overall, this is a nice spaceship combat game, but nothing really special. If you own and play Gun Bros (or Men vs Machines), then there is not much new to see here. If you like those twin stick shooters and want more of the same then this application is well worth a look.
