PewPew is the best multidirectional shoot them up on Android.
It’s basically megatons of enemies and many different game modes, everything rolled up with sweet smooth retro graphics.
Win medals, unlock ships, and compete on the online ladder board.
There are five VERY different game modes:
Some enemies explode when they die, and the other spin maniacally everywhere. Hide from the explosions or deftly go through them.
As you collect boxes, there are more and more enemies moving around. Naturally, you have to dodge them all.
You fight against waves of enemies. Spoiler: at the end, they win and you die.
Chromatic Conflict (NSF color blinds):
Enemies of different color appear. You can only destroy the ones that are the same color as your ship.
Need I say more?
High frame-rate (honestly, this is what defines this game)
Finely tuned game-play (oh, and this too)
Online leader boards
XPERIA PLAY Optimized
Controller support for NVIDIA and Android set-top boxes.
Now a few notes:
Kill as many background app you can, this can considerably increase the smoothness.
Seriously, kill them all.
On some devices (such as my Nexus One) the touch screen has trouble handling touches on the same horizontal or vertical axis. That is why by default the joysticks are in diagonal. You can try moving the joysticks to the bottom using the settings menu, but it might result in poor controls.
No personal data is sold and there are no ads. I’m really sorry ads-lover.
PewPew user reviews :
Really good retro style game. Similar to geometry wars. Has elements from classic games like Asteroids, Robotron 2084, & Tempest. Actually has an Asteroids mode, true to the B&W original, not the 2600 color rocks. It’s a little hard to start off. There should be difficulty levels. If there is i didn’t see them. And especially games like this i wish it supported Google Play Achievements. Almost a perfect 5* game though. If you grew up in the 80s you’ll probably like this one
I think the game is great, however it really needs more than one track to play. It would help this already fun game become more replayable. Also i like the colors, but wouldn’t it be cool if we could adjust the colors along with how bright the colors are or increase the glow effects? I know it asking a bit much but i think this game would be perfect if we could ajust it and make it more flashier and more particley lol
This game is fun as heck! However, I have one problem, it’s uncomfortable to play on a smartphone, because I have big hands and it’s awkward to handle. I would suggest to give the option of turning on motion control (tilt to move, hold to shoot). The overall game is good, I like it
WOW this game brings back so much nostalgia, and I don’t mean nostalgia for the 80s. Like another reviewer, I also first found this game on the BlackBerry playbook; that was 9 years ago! This game has really aged well, it’s still the same as it was before. People who say the game is lacking need to realize that this isn’t a newly developed game, you’re playing a game made in 2011. The dev also stopped updating after 2016. It’s a simple game and I like that.
- Wow, a BlackBerry Playbook owner! I loved that device, the OS was brilliant. Thanks for the review. Consider taking a look at PewPew Live ( play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jyaif.pewpewlive )
perfectly captures the atmosphere of geowars 2 and other great arcade games, wish pewpew 2 was free looking how cool it looks but i see how much work is in it makes sense. hey, we have this though!
Not a single reason to not give a full 5 star…. Great captivating music , no ads , and pure retro gameplay, one of the best experience in play store in such a small size .
Expectations exceeded :) Good controls. Good challenge. Five different game variants each with a different feel. Free of charge. No ads.
one of my favorite mobile games! I have been playing it since I first found it on the Playbook. I am glad it was ported to android. The games much like asteroids, but more intense and fast-paced.
I think one of the best games to play with controller. Also you can select different types of rendering (Google glasses, 3D)
Simple and challenging game. My problem in the game the sfx gone when playing for minutes in any game modes then only music I hear.
I love this game! It’s simple, yet really fun, has a good aesthetic and is very small!
