The mysterious Forces of Infinity have declared war and you wound up captured. Trapped in an arena for their amusement, you must survive the onslaught of the Infinity Forces, consisting of blue drones, yellow attackers, and red strikers. Even worse, the attackers and the strikers will lay mines and spray bullets as they circulate through the arena.
How to Play:
On the level select screen, use your left thumb on the left and right arrows to rotate your ship until the desired start level is highlighted. When you have the desired level highlighted, use your right thumb to start the game.
When playing, you will want to play your left thumb over the left and right arrows in the bottom left corner of the screen. Your right thumb goes over the up arrow (thrusters) and the fire button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Use the left and right arrows to rotate your ship to the left or right. Use the up arrow to activate the thrusters and move the ship forward in the direction it's facing. Tap the fire button to fire at the drones.
You can pause game play at any time by tapping the upper half of the screen. You can tap again anywhere in the upper half of the screen to resume play, or the white quit button to quit back to the main menu.
The play field consists of shield walls. Your ship will bounce off the shield walls harmlessly. Use this to your advantage as you circulate around the play field.
At the start of each new life, your ship will be shielded. Use this opportunity to maneuver your ship to a safer position, clear mines, or just wipe out the drone forces.
Each drone wave consists of 4 levels consisting of a wave of drones. You must clear each level of drones before proceeding to the next level. As you play through a level, certain drones will flash. These drones will become yellow attackers that will start to fire bullets throughout the play field. If these are not destroyed, they will become red strikers. These strikers are much faster and will track you aggressively.
Note that you do not need to clear the level of mines, although clearing them will make it easier to navigate the levels. The mines will carry over from level to level until the end of a drone wave. A bonus is awarded for each drone wave completed.

Ratings and Reviews
I finally found Omega Race
I have been telling my kids about omega race for years. It was my fav old school game and I was thrilled to find an iPhone playable version. The game play is pretty good and very much like I how I remember it. My only complaint is that often when the game ends the app crashes and I have to reopen to play another game.
This used to be one of my favorite arcade games back in the day. Glad to see an iPhone option. Graphics are well done. Does anyone know if the game supports external controls?
A good rendition of a classic
I like this game. I would like to hear more sounds for things like the thrust, and an emulation of the original background sounds that gradually got faster as time went by. I'd love to hear the original sounds if possible. Other than that, this is a good start to a great emulation of a classic.
