A TPS set in space
Although Solar Warfare's storyline is more cliche than the most cliche ever (let's sum it up in a single sentence: aliens came in peace, destroyed the world and were frontally attacked by YOU the last survivor), it's one of the most entertaining third person shooters this season, and perhaps, seen that way, one of the most original regarding gameplay because you pilot a spaceship instead of a marine or whatsoever.
Graphics are great (truly, see that water), sound isn't such but it works, but let's jump to gameplay: with a wise mix of tilting and on-screen controls Solar Warfare achieves a level of accuracy that will satisfy even the most demanding gamers, hence making of this game a very pleasant experience. Of course, there's enough weapons, shields and stuff to buy, upgrade and try out as to sink a battleship, but you'll discover it by yourself.
Therefore, a game above average in all areas with a remarkable gameplay performance. Recommended.
Dive into futuristic combat and navigate through a variety of supernatural landscapes while piloting your starship with intuitive, precise tilt controls. The clean interface allows you to press anywhere on the right side of the screen to rapid fire your main weapon, and press anywhere on the left side to hover. The hovering feature adds a whole new dimension to the game, as you can shoot enemies and dodge their fire without needing to fly past them. Enemies are all tracked in the real-time radar.
Low altitude cruising through detailed close-up terrain sets this game apart from other third-person shooting games. The game play in Solar Warfare lends to up close and personal battles with enemies, and intense slot canyon flying. Though the controls make you feel like you're air borne, this game is much more than a flight simulator - you also need to eradicate an army of hostiles in each world.
Collect coins throughout the game to buy new weapons, upgrade existing weapons, buy stronger shields, buy seeking missiles, and buy revive kits. There is an option to purchase coins within the app for those who just can't wait to own their very own Obliterator. Or you can just save up for all your upgrades by collecting coins in each level.
Each of the 5 main guns is upgradable, with upgrade behavior unique to each weapon. Each shield has unique characterstics as well. Try the seeker missiles for some real fire and forget fun. Stock up on revive kits to continue right where your ship died.
Each of the 8 worlds you explore and cleanse of various hostiles with various behaviors is unique, and simply beautiful. Destroy enemy fighters, jets, space craft, tanks, turrets, airplanes, and more. A different boss at the end of each level is sure to satiate your thirst for epic battles.
You play the hero in modern star wars type science fiction combat, using your space ship to reclaim the galaxy by destroying all of the space invaders. The scenery in Solar Warfare, from space stations, to lush floating mountains, to ice planets, to desert terrain, to asteroid belts and everything in between this sci-fi galaxy's solar halo is detailed and unique. The graphics are great and the FPS is high in this interstellar combat game.
With alien robot exploding laser guns and missiles, Solar Warfare is an exciting space shooting adventure that’s sure to keep you engaged and well entertained. So, soldier - duty calls. Go shoot some bad guys.

I have many downloads for shmups and this is one of my favorites.
just loved it.
It is just like star fox
Very easy controls. Doesnt crash. Very upgradeable ship weapons with easy to understand point system. Only criticism is that it is relatively short in levels. Definitely worth downloading.
Being the Starfox fan/Slippy hater, I thought that this would not size up to it....Well, let's just say I am glad I'm wrong.
