Syder Arcade HD is based on the hit PC and Mac game of the same title released last year. It’s a free scrolling space shooter that reminds you of the popular 16-bit games of the 90’s. Retro gamers will definitely feel at home with the gameplay style this title has to offer while at the same time be blown away by the amazing graphics.
Syder Arcade HD can now be downloaded over at Google Play for just $0.99. You will need a device running on at least Android 4.0 and a storage space of 83 MB. Game developer Studio Evil has also recommended that you use a device that has a dual core processor to ensure a smooth gaming experience.
The game is pretty much simple to play. First you will have to choose which among the three vessels to aid you in your battle. Each vessel has its own unique abilities which affect the way you play the game. The vessels range from being light to heavy and will either be faster or stronger.
After choosing your vessel it’s going to be all action from there. You just have to shoot at your enemies and make sure to avoid their return fire. You can upgrade your weapons by getting the drop pickups of your enemy.
Although the game is a side scrolling shooter you will be able to fly in any direction which makes it relatively easy for you to destroy your enemy. Your enemy consists of small fighters that are easy to destroy to massive cruisers complete with cannon defenses.
Some of the game features include
- 6 campaing levels
- 1 survival mode level
- 2 opposite directions
- 3 player starships
- 4 difficulty levels
- At least 3 huge capital ships and 1 giant bug-ship
- Skill-based badges to improve your high scores
- 5 Tons of nostalgia and 16 of Old-School
- Amiga-style soundtrack
- Zombie free
The game is something that you can easily pickup when you are looking for some quick action. Despite lacking in story the developers makes this up with amazing graphics and awesome action.
