AstroWings3–ICARUS (by M2M Entertainment) is the 3rd title in the AstroWing series, and is yet another great epic flying-shooter game with 3 playable ships, 3 difficulty levels, tough boss battles — and a cool mythology/technology storyline. The title may not get across the “epicness” of this game, but once you fire it up and play — you will understand. Most game storylines are lame or really weak, but this storyline was memorable to me after reading it in the iTunes description. In a nutshell, your heroine is Hera, a warrior goddess, and she is trying to control the skies in a non stop battle with her enemies. The gameplay is fast and furious with enemy ships attacking from all directions, including from behind. Eventually, you will reach a boss battle for each level, which are intense to say the least. You can have 3 profiles, but once a profile is created you cannot change it, but only delete it. Since there are 3 different ships (Ares, Athena, and Poseidon 3 – mythology reference) you can have one for each profile and your coin/wing currency is shared between the profiles. There are a couple of extras like a Power and Special weapon that will make your life a bit easier, but the real trick to this game is to score combos. By scoring combos your weapons will be upgraded, the longer your combo score lasts the more powerful your weapons will become. But, once you take damage your combo is reduced and if you take too much damage you have to start from 0 again.
I played both the Ares and Athena ships (each had a different main and special weapon) and found the gameplay to be very fast, yet at some points there were unnerving lulls that led to increased enemy resistance. The enemies are colorful and so are their bullets, lasers and bombs, and the bosses flush all of the previous in massive amounts at you when you go up against them. Coins and wings can be used to upgrade your ships and you can purchase these through in app purchase; however, you can also earn both through playing the game. I only played 2 full levels with 2 different ships and the levels were challenging to say the least. This game has great content that can be played at 3 difficulty settings, that is if you can survive. If you have never played any of the AstroWings iPhone or iPad games, do yourself a favor and pick AstroWings3 – ICARUS up for FREE — while it lasts — until 07/02/12 when it will return to $0.99.
