Awesome arcade space combat on all your devices!
Take to the stars in this classic top-down space shooter inspired by the 16-bit era, the golden age of space games, and the game Star Control in particular.
Arcade game control
Supporting pioneering control schemes as well as hardware controllers, ionAXXIA brings the console/arcade experience to the touchscreen and PC. Dodge, weave, spin, shoot. Use a planet’s gravity for a speed slingshot, or draw your pursuer into a fatal collision with an explosive asteroid. This is real gameplay, dependent on reactions and skilful execution on every device it’s played on.
Tactical gameplay through design-your-own-ships
Design the perfect vessels to conquer/save the universe, selecting from components in millions of combinations to balance fire-power, manoeuvrability and cost to fit your play style and the current level challenges, whether that’s direct combat or using environmental hazards to your advantage.
Classic ’90s space-game flavouring
Inspired by the great 1990s space games such as Master of Orion, Ascendancy, and of course Star Control, ionAXXIA indulges in the same delight of varied tech and gobbledegook sci-fi jargon. As well as the typical blasters and laser beams, expect cluster-missiles, gravity wells, and maybe a few ‘antimatter cones’ and ‘space limpits’.
Easy pick-up-and-play gaming
ionAXXIA is designed around short bouts so you can get a decent game when you’ve just got a few minutes to kill, or blow an afternoon perfecting your skills and levelling your components. A wealth of alternative control options also bring a simpler interface so you can be sure to find a way to play on your Windows tablet/phone that suits your tastes.
