Sky Force and Sky Force Reloaded for Android


Readers of my blog certainly are aware of my nearly unhealthy love of shoot-em-ups or SHMUPS, right?

One would surmise that if a good shmup was available on a mobile platform, I’d probably be in love with it and play it while on the toilet at work – muttering, in hushed tones, about high scores and score multipliers, right?

Well, now you too can play a killer shmup – while on the toilet at work, or anywhere else for that matter, if you have a cell phone running Google’s Android operating system.

I’m a big fan of Android, and personally believe that Android is poised to kill the iPhone – but enough of that.

This is about games.

This is about mobile ship-flying, shoot-em-up action.

The games, graphically, look similar to the Donpachi series by shmup gods, CAVE. The similarity ends there as these have much lover bullet counts, but are just as challenging – incorporating touch controls and an auto-fire mechanic.

Both of these games ran fine on my Samsung Moment, running a modified Android v2.1 AND even better on my HTC EVO.

Both games are avaibable for free (in demo form) in the Android Market. The full versions run 1.99 Pound, roughly $3.50 USD.

Check out some pics.

*** Just a note: The Funny looking squares of black and white pixels there, yeah those are called QR Codes. If you have an Android device, you can scan them with any of the Barcode Reader apps on the market. Scanning the QR code will take you directly to the download link for each game. Cool huh? ***
