Meteor Blitz is an A grade space shooter iPhone game loaded with non-stop action. Your space is flies through a semi 2D spacial map of nearby planet Earth or far away galaxies, and blasts away asteroids, space rocks and various bosses. You control the game with 2 virtual directional pads, one on either side of the screen. The left pad is used for moving around in space, and the right pad controls your shooting trigger and shooting direction. Hold the left virtual joystick to move, and tap it to boost when your ship is glowing green. Follow the little red arrows on the screen that point you towards the enemy. Hold down the right pad to fire, in any direction that you want by rotating your thumbs. You have 3 types of bullets, and each work best on specific types of meteors. Switch weapons easily by tapping the top glowing button on top of the right pad. You also get bombs which you can engage by tapping the red button on the bottom of the right pad or by shaking the iPhone. Your ship is also equipped with a gravity gun, that lets you suck in rocks and throw them into outer space. You can listen to your own iPod music while playing or the music from Meteor Blitz itself which is a high adrenaline type pump you up type techno song.
Meteor Blitz can be played in arcade or survival mode. Arcade mode has 6 levels that you can unlock with each level having about 5 stages. As you kill your enemy meteors, you gain stars and you use those start buy and upgrade your weapons between each level, so be sure to collect your stars after you blow up you enemies.
The app has global high scores support and a few other options the let you customize the sound effects and shake sensitivity of the bombs. Overall Meteor Blitz is an awesome dual thumb fly and shoot asteroids type game with slick graphics, fluid non-stop action, and is worth much more than its current selling price. If you liked playing Geometry Wars or Super Stardust HD, you will love Meteor Blitz on the iPhone. The dual controls take a few minutes to get used to and if you go through the excellent tutorial you will get it in no time. We would love for the developer to add a new option to allow users to save checkpoints so they don’t have to start all over again every time.
