The cult favorite comes to iOS!

Illuminations is an action game centered around fireworks. The goal is to shoot the rising rockets in order to set them off. Do a good job and you'll create a spectacular show of light. Miss too many rockets, and it's game over.

Enemies will spawn to slow down your attempts. Shoot them as well to add to the show, and to prevent them from stopping you. Each rocket you miss will lower the crowd excitement meter, as will each stun shot you receive from enemies. Hitting rockets will raise the meter. If the meter reaches zero, it's game over.

- Gorgeous 3D graphics with classic arcade gameplay.
- Smooth accelerometer or touch movement with touch firing.
- Listen to the included soundtrack or play your own music.
- 3 gameplay modes: Arcade, Remix, and Freestyle.
- 6 enemy types and 5 weapons to take them down with.
- MFI game controller support.
- Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements.
- Save game syncing between MacOS, iOS, and tvOS versions.
- Supports iCade joysticks.
- Hours of entertainment! Hundreds of levels! Easy to learn, hard to master!

Great game!

I love this game. The controls are pretty easy (and I'm looking forward to calibration) and the gameplay is great. There are multiple different items and the graphics look great. Great job so far, but I'd love to see more modes and online scoreboards.

Must buy! Best shooter on the touch!

Updated review

1.2 update is great. The graphics are even better now and you can start at any level you completed. Great job keeping it fresh. Worth the cash as is but put it on sale so more people find out about this gem. This should be in the top 100 but you need a .99 sale to get there!

The 1.1 update is awesome. You can now calibrate and the explosions are better and the action more intense. It's now a 5 star app. Worth every penny. Thank you developer !

could have been a classic but there's no calibration and i dont like playing games sitting up. all ipod touch games should be required to have calibration. also, you can only fire in the direction you are moving which isnt very good. update!!!!!! the developer quickly responded to my email and said the first update will include auto calibaration and sensitivity options so once that happens, this game will be a must buy. gameplay is cool. starts off slow up picks up in the later levels. beautiful game to look at but we just need the update for all to be good. this will easily be a 4-5 star game once the update comes.

My new favorite

Normally I don't play games but this soon became very addictive and is now my new favorite. Game play is easy to learn, graphics are excellent, and use of the accelerometer is a definite plus. 5 stars.
