"Space résistance"

An invasion of aliens is trying to reach your space station. The only way to defend your headquarters is by attacking them with special disks. Launch them through the aliens and avoid them to reach the bottom of the screen, otherwise you'll be done.

Set in vector graphics, Diskobolos brings us back to space retro arcade games, not just for the scenery, but the action gameplay and "the list", an online leaderboard where compete against other players.

There's a tutorial that will guide you through basic controls: tap the screen to shoot a disk, the longer you touch, the faster the disk will be launched. Try to hit as many enemies in a row to get combo bonus. Most important thing is keeping them away from the bottom. Make the most of the wall bounces to reach enemies approaching you.

Beside killing aliens, try to reach items that are boosters: they'll make easier finishing off enemies and will help you stay alive longer. There are three different item categories, each one will be activated at different combo score. Likewise, there are different game modes that will be unlocked as you progress.

In summary, what we got here is highly addictive game that will challenge yourself until insanity thanks to "The list" and that will make you remind the action of classic space arcades. Great one.
