Sinister Planet Full Free



    Sinister Planet Full Free's review

    Published: 2014-02-17, by Peter Warrior.

    A modern take on classic Asteroids

    • Good remake of a classic
    • Minor UI issues
    • It could be more spectacular and enthralling

    "Deep Space Harvest Season"

    Sinister Planet's gameplay will look so familiar to you that there isn't even a tutorial when you start. Two on-screen controls, one for moving and the other one to open fire sum it all up. Your starship will be taken by inertia while waves of asteriods and enemy ships swarm the screen. Riddle them all and collect gold and gems to upgrade your ship if you're playing battle mode, or to get power-ups in arcade mode.

    Aside from the two aforementioned modes, there are several more changes from the original well-known game. Firstly, you don't crash when hitting a mean enemy or a wandering rock. Secondly, there are different stages instead of a single, never-ending, one. The power-up shop is also a great enhancement, and graphics have moved from vectorial to 8-bit-like.

    It's a fun game, that perfectly serves its purpose to enhance the original game, but it won't be the utter remake. There are some minor user interface issues that sully the overall experience, as when a wave suddenly ends and the shop is shown but banishes because you're still tap tap tapping on the shooting button. Difficulty curve is also odd because the first levels are harmless no matter how hard you try to die.

    It would also be great that native mobile controls, namely tilting, have been used, let alone some kind of cooperative or competitive multiplayer.

    Anyway, recommended if you're already into this kind of retro-casual gaming: it won't disappoint you.

    Mission Objective
    Your objective is to attack and destroy a series of alien worlds, the ultimate of which is Planet Sinister. To destroy each world you'll attack the planet surface and take out the power grid protecting the planet's core.
    Upgrade your ship
    To aid you on your quest, you'll have the opportunity to upgrade your ship's weapon systems, by means of collecting power-ups (in Arcade mode) or collecting gold (in Battle mode).
    As you progress through the waves, you're going to need those upgrades as more deadly enemies are introduced. Old-school afficanados will recognise some of the aliens based closly on such classics as Galaga and Defender (take a look at the Pods/Swarmers!). Upgrades available include R-Type style extra laser pods to double or triple your firepower, ECM attacks (aka Smart bombs), turrets for multi-touch 360 degree shooting, and more.
    Collect the Gems
    To progess each wave, your task is to collect the gems produced when blasting the asteroids (think: Sinistar). Don't worry, the asteroids won't hurt you, but you'll be faced with a different challenge - your enemy ('Roamers') just love to grab those Gems too - so make sure you reach them first - and beware! Shoot them quickly, or they'll be transformed into a much more dangerous foe (think: Defender). Lose all your gems and you'll have to fight the remained of the waves from 'Witchspace' with nothing but chaotic Mutons attacking from all sides.
    Challenge Waves
    As a welcome respite from the hard-core destruction, you'll get the chance to gain some bonus points by completing the challenge waves. Aliens will fly in formation around your ship while you attempt to do a complete wipe-out (think: Galaga). It's not easy, but getting the right upgrades will aid your task. During these waves your ship gains temporary indestructibility.
    Sinister Planet has been carefully crafted over many months to provide the perfect challenge of difficulty vs playability. As you improve, the game will grow harder to meet your challenge. So far only one player has destroyed the Planet Sinister - may you be the next?

    This is my all time favorite phone game ever. For some reason it just never gets old. I'm a little addicted (as you can tell from the scoreboard...)
