ABOUT THE GAME

Zap Blastum is a cover shooter anyone can play!

Tap to move, tap to shoot, tap behind a wall to hide in cover.

You’re a cute little alien who’s always dreamed of saving the galaxy but has never gotten the chance. Finally, robots invade your planet, and you’re super psyched.

A HARDCORE CASUAL GAME
Like all your favorite casual games, this is about taking a break from your busy day. BUT instead of sweeping mines or crushing candy, it’s your chance to save the galaxy! Instant accessibility with depth for those who want it.

STORY
You play Zap, a cute little alien who’s always dreamed of saving the galaxy, to be like the ancient heroes. Now, robots are invading your planet and you’re super psyched! It’s time for a new kind of hero, a cuter kind of hero, one who’s still discovering how strong they really are.

SIMPLE, FRESH CONTROLS
Streamlined controls bring the typically complex cover shooter genre to anyone who can use a mouse, without losing the depth. Hide in cover, automatically lean around corners while shooting.

WARM, COLORFUL, EXPLODE-Y
This is a shooter that’s not afraid to be cheerful. Not everyone’s into dark and gritty space marines. Zap doesn’t fit the stereotype. The robots will never know what hit ’em!

ARCADE STYLE GAMEPLAY
Blast through over 20 levels and try for high scores with combos and streak multipliers. You get unlimited continues if you want them, but it resets your score.

OUT OF THIS WORLD FEATURES

  • Meet friendly robots along the journey that fight by your side
  • Crazy research to unlock, from new weapons to flipping the game upside down

  • Beat the game on Normal, then try Hard, and Expert mode for more challenge
  • Compete for high scores on the leaderboards
  • The simplified controls and top down perspective free you to focus on strategy

PRESS AND AWARDS

“The combination of cover-based gameplay with XCOM’s camera angle makes for a slick combination of mobility and visibility.”NerdyBits
