Nucleus is an action packed arcade game with classic roots. You fly a spaceship around while blowing up space debris. There are tons of cool weapons powerups which give you lasers, heat seeking bullets, shields, etc. The goal of the game is to build Atoms by collecting Electrons and taking them to the Nucleus. It's an incredibly fun and exciting game, and it can be played over AirPlay in true HD on your HDTV set.

Retro-Goodness Reskinned with New-School Sensibilities.

This is a good old-school retro-visitation skinned with new-world sensibilities. The game's apocalyptic score is rounds out the entire gaming experience wonderfully. My only complaint (and resultant docking of a single star for this review) is that even though I have maxed my iPad 2's brightness, the smaller, remnant asteroids that spew forth after I clip its larger incarnation are harder to pick up against the dark, space background. In fact, each time my ship was destroyed, I was surprised because I didn't see the smaller object either headed my way or hidden when I went to pick up a power-up/"score box". I hope the devs can fix this quickly in the game's next iteration.


Frustrating ruins the fun

I put about 4 hours in your game. Many things I do like about it... good soundtrack, nice visuals and the explosions look out of this world but... the way the control is set up ( I am using a steelsires game pad ) and its way way to hard. So hard in fact that it kills the fun and I want to delete the game. There is no way I’m alone in my opinion. If there’s a change in difficulty or power ups to shoot faster perhaps... your score will be higher by a large margin. This game needs to be more polished. Most of the 6 reviews are complaining of same issues... control and difficulty. BRADBRO.
