Plasma Sky is a shiny new space shoot-em-up featuring over 100 levels, lots of power-ups, and multiple game modes. It's universal, and there will never be any ads or in app purchases.

There's lots of kinds of enemy ships, and snakes, and your ship powers up and can get different kinds of ammo. There's a regular shield, but also a spike shield that lets you ram enemies. There are bosses! And there's lasers! And you can get wing-men who can power up too! And you and your wing-men can get lasers! And the levels are all different! And there's other stuff! And it barely costs anything!

Look, you need a good game to keep you company on the bus, or while your dinner companion is away, or when you've already done enough and you need a break. This is it. This is that game. This is the game you'll get to make that time awesome.

I had seen my hubby playing this game. It looked fun, but not as complicated as some shooting games. Just shoot and try not to be hit. A great way to get my frustrations out! A number of different games, one with 100 levels. I know I have beaten hubby’s high score, but that is my secret...for now. I am a little addicted and have to play it a few times, at least, each night. Give it a try. You’ll fall in love! Thanks!

Still one of the best!!!

This game has followed me through two iPads and and at least one iPhone and an iPod touch. Simply a must have on every device. Amazing soundtrack and addictive gameplay that can keep you busy for however much time you have. Can’t recommend enough! Wish this thing had 1000’s of reviews!
