Overview

This application is recommended for ages 6+.

Do you have 10-15 minutes to kill? Alpha Wave was made for just such an occasion! A well polished, extremely easy to play, intense arcade space shooter with it's roots firmly planted in the old-school arcade classics such as AstroSmash, Galaga and Asteroids.

Plenty of non-stop, progressive action with over 65 waves spread across 3 levels featuring a huge variety of different enemies each with their own unique behaviors along with final bosses to bring it all to an intense finish.

Coupled with amazing special effects, leaderboards, 24 achievements to unlock and an intense musical score, Alpha Wave delivers solid quality for less than the price of a cup of high society, glorified coffee!

    Thanks for Adopting Some of My suggestions

    This is great. Guess I'm not as good as many other players. I could never get past level 10. I suggested making it progressive play to keep guys like me from getting frustrated. You replied same day saying u would consider it. Thanks for adopting it. And thanks for the visual changes. Great game and thanks for not ripping us off like some other big name developers.

    Great shooter!

    A fun, simple and addicting shooter! The cool graphics and smooth animation add to the gameplay and old-school feel. Nicely put together... a definite must have!

    Great game but ongoing problems!

    Addictive game with good graphics and sound on Nook HD +. Frustrating to play with a bug that periodically causes shooter to slide far right and freeze there resulting in the early demise of your shooter and low scores. Developer responded quickly to my email but his resolution was "wait until the next release of version 1.7", yet B&N is still selling 1.5! Don't waste your money on this until the update comes out.
