Editors’ Choice

The more we play this ingenious arcade shooter, the more it blows us away. Revolving back and forth along a circular track, blasting ships before they reach your base, seems pretty simple at first. But the brilliant one-touch control scheme—where firing also changes your direction—adds a deeply compelling wrinkle. When everything clicks and you’re timing your shots just right, it’s absolutely exhilarating. And the catchy soundtrack, gorgeous minimalism, and prevailing sense of polish just make the quest for high scores that much better.

Good Challenge

Super Arc Light is a minimalist arcade shooter where you have to defend the innermost circle. You do that with only one button. Your player spawns in rotating around the inner circle automatically. Tap and hold the screen to fire as well as slow your ship down. Let go to change directions. It's not the most elegant control scheme and requires a good amount of precision to perform basic tasks. This game could have easily benefited from a more precise control scheme that allows you to move two directions separately. But hey, at least it doesn't rely on virtual buttons. The gameplay is nice and simple, just what you would expect from a top down arcade shooter. Waves of enemies spawn and you must defeat them before they reach the center. This can be tricky as you need to time your taps to hit the enemies and lead your shots, especially with a control scheme that punishes you for missing by making your ship go the opposite direction. I can see this game being fun to master. As it stands right now, if you are willing to deal with a funky control scheme for a decent top
down shooter, Super Arc Light may be worth your download.

Great Game

Really good game, loved the graphics, nothing too developed but right on the spot, and loved the design of the game, really simple but also really innovative, so i guess you could say less is more, and would totally apply with this game, it's a new way to play space shooters, at least thats how i define this game, really addictive and pretty easy to get involved with, nothing too hard, my friends and my little cousins are enjoying right now this game too, this game has a very friendly interface at the beginning and totally love the fact that the more you progress in the game, the more weapons you have making this game more entertaining and addictive, it also has the fact that you have the leaderboards so if you get really excited about this game you can compete against players worldwide or even better, with yourself, its an amazing game, worth every cent, would buy it again if i had too, you are paying the exact amount for a game that will get you out of your boredom.
