Top Android Game: Radiant
Radiant is an Android game based on older arcade space shooters where you fight to overcome an alien horde. If you’d like to relive classic shooter games, this is it. It is made by Hexage who created another game you might’ve played, Buka.
Price: £1.50 (~$2.50)
Overall Score: 4.625/5
The object of the game is to fight through alien units, bosses, and meteors to save your homeland. Destroying other units helps you to collect upgraded weapons, power-ups, and improvements to your ship. Money from kills also lets you purchase upgrades to help you in your journey.
The graphics give the game a very polished feel and help you really get into the game. Also, the storyline is well done and adds another fine touch to the user experience. Oftentimes games like this forget how important a good storyline is, but not here.
Some complaints in the Android Market were about controls and some lag. While I noticed a little bit of these issues, they cleared up pretty fast after playing the game for a little while. I wouldn’t let these concerns deter you.
