Quantum Revenge begins with an interesting intro that introduces characters in a manga animation style, as they suit up into robot Transformer like rocket suits for battle, setting the style and story. Start your first mission with young pilot Shin, nickname Quantum. Stats show ability and stamina for Shin and the other team members. There are five other characters to choose from but they must be unlocked by earning and redeeming credits. Controls are introduced displaying a blue and orange joystick. The blue joystick on the left pilots your character around while the orange joystick on the right is to aim and fire. An additional button on the right is for power attacks and acceleration. Other options include controls with a touch controller and the ability to turn off and on vibration or adjust the sound.
The first moments of flight in Quantum Revenge feel very familiar. It’s like Space Invaders, except enemies are swarming all around you. Flying around the screen works very well with the joystick controls and reacts as quickly as it needs to when attacking opponents. Firing is automatic with no need to constantly tap a button, which is nice. The right joystick simply points you in the direction of where you would like to shoot. In some cases it is a bit too sensitive and it is easy to lose control and your target. Collect different colored orbs to credit your pilot and use them to buy special weapons and more. Earn bonus credits when completing missions to buy upgrades and continue with recovery. Additional credits can also be bought with in-app purchases. Fly toward the red arrows on the screen and defeat as many foes as possible, including a boss fight at the end of each level. The battle can be long and tough, but the rewards are worth it.
Quantum Revenge is a fun shoot ’em up that pits the users against big bosses in a space flight free for all. The graphics and gameplay are outstanding and worth a look if this is the type of game you like. The app is available now in the App Store for $2.99 and is compatible with iPhone and iPad.
