Your teachers probably told you to never run with scissors, but they never said anything about a plasma sword! Besides, when aliens are invading and blowing up all of Earth's cool stuff, who has time for safety? Put on your running shoes, grab your weapon, and get out there. Navigate dangerous terrain using your excellent acrobatic moves, grab any cool power-ups you see on the way, and slice everything in your path!

Battle your way through more than 25 stages set across 5 different areas and go toe-to-claw with five vicious bosses. Unlock awesome new moves, upgrade your abilities, and deck yourself out in awesome new outfits. Challenge yourself with 5 difficulty levels, including the terrifying Nightmare mode — or hop into the endless mode and take down aliens to your heart's content. Swing your sword like wild and make sure that for these nasty invaders, the first contact is the final one!

Supports MFi, XBox, and PlayStation Controllers

Defend Earth: Aliens have invaded! Introduce them to the business end of your plasma sword!

Unlock New Moves: Use the experience you earn from squashing invaders to unlock moves like a double-jump, a mid-air charging attack, and more!

Tons of Stages: Charge into the fray in more than 25 stages set across 5 different areas!

Massive Bosses: Test your mettle against huge boss enemies at the end of each area! Observe their patterns carefully and strike!

Customize Your Look: If you're going to save the world, you might as well do it in style! Unlock different clothes, hair colors, and plasma sword colors and customize to your heart's delight!

Challenge Endless Mode: You'll never run out of extraterrestrials to cut into ribbons! Take on 5 different difficulty levels and see if you've got what it takes to survive Nightmare mode.

Why 5 stars?

First off the dev team is awesome. They care about their work and players and are communicative as well as more than willing to incorporate user feedback. This game is simply one of the best auto runners on the AppStore. The theme alone is fantastic. There's so many upgrades and cosmetic items you can get for your character. There are actual levels in a story mode but also endless modes that vary in the degree of difficulty. There is sooo much replayability with this game. The controls are actually spot on and I've not had any issues at all. This game really does deserve 5 stars. Oh and if you want to get extra xp to get some upgrades or a light saber color you can watch some opt in ads. Nothing forced. Well that's it. Thank you devs for continuing to support this game and for such a fun time.

Thanks so much to everyone involved for adding this to TA's GameClub!! It's one of my absolute favorite endless runners ever! The controls are perfect, the mechanics are very well implemented, the player's inertia and movement in the world is done so incredibly great - it just FEELS fantastic while playing.
The upgrades can be a bit costly, and all of my progress was wiped out with this update (even with it saved in the cloud) but I don't mind one bit, as this is a game that has tons of staying power, so chances are, I might just be purchasing new upgrades months from now.

Yet again, another top notch pick for GameClub!

Fun but broken controls

Game looks and feels great and I'm sure it would be a lot of fun but the jump button doesn't always work on my iPhone 6s+ and I can't get past the first level of the second world because of it. If the controls were fixed where it's more playable, I would rate much higher.
