Astral Plague is a modern shoot'em-up with an old premise: aliens invade and mankind strikes back. You command the Paladin, the most powerful starship ever built, which is upgradeable and can be controlled either by an on-screen joypad or by tilting. We'll enjoy the action in colorful modern graphics, save from the current retro-like craze.
Game's very fun per se, but in addition there are a few tweaks to enhance player's experience. First off, there are some surprising tower defense add-ons, and an interesting damage system. Likewise, there are several difficulty settings and, to sum it all up, it's not only one of the best shmups on market, but also one of the most creative and innovative (within the genre it belongs, of course) when we thought that everything was already said about how to kill aliens and save the Earth.
Recommended, at least, to every gamer worthy of that name. Casual players, proceed at your own risk.
