This app is REALLY free, no pesky adds that you would prefer your children not to see!
V1.0.7 Added a noise similar to the Star Trek door opening/closing noise when your ship enters or leaves an invisibility shield - most sounds in this app have been provided by freesound.org a great resource.
V1.0.6 Forgot to turn off the INTERNET permission used for debugging in v1.0.5 - no need for this permission so it's been turned off - added an alien voice saying 'You Lose' when you are destroyed. About the INTERNET permission: At some point we may start sending you targeted adverts as a way of keeping this app 'free'. This will require the INTERNET permission be accepted. Currently this is not the case, and the INTERNET permission requirement was just wrong!
V1.0.5 When you win a voice says 'You win' to make certain the explosion you hear is the bad guy blowing up, not you blowing up because you've been hit by the Guardian or a Guardlet!
The Federation has sent you to planet Flash-AS3 to investigate the disappearance of all previous Federation ships sent to that planet. To help you, the Federation are projecting four powerful invisibility shields and you are initially located in one. Moving into a shield protects you from attack. Also you can teleport from one shield to another, to quickly move around the planet by tapping the destination shield (you must already be in a shield to teleport to another). Other movement is controlled by tilting your device.
When not protected within a shield you must evade The Guardian and Guardlets. The Guardian will actively pursue you, but the Guardlets are basically floating mines fitted with proximity fuses.
The only way to win the game is to fully charge the EMP pod sent in with you by the Federation, but this requires you physically connect to the pod and wait for charging to complete. And during this time The Guardian will be homing in on you!
Currently there are three user selectable options:
1) Number of Guardlets.
Unlike the Guardian which actively pursues you, each Guardlet just wanders. But its proximity fuse makes a Guardlet just as deadly as The Guardian.
2) The speed of your ship.
The slower your ship the easier it is for the Guardian to catch and destroy you. In fact your lowest speed is lower than that of the Guardian, so you can't outrun him in a straight line! You must use sharp turns and the invisibility shields to win.
3) Time to charge the EMP pod.
Medium was the only option prior to v 1.0.4. Slow requires you to dock with the pod for six seconds to charge it and win - and all that time the Guardian is getting closer!
This app requires Android Adobe AIR. If this is not already installed on your device you will be asked to install it the first time this app runs. Android Adobe AIR is basically the same as Adobe Flash Player, but does not run inside a web browser. Installing it will give you access to thousands of new apps!
