Key Features:

  • Power Up – Blast pink UFOs to pick up deadly benefits like explosives asteroids or a black hole shot that sucks in all enemies in its radius.
  • Challenge – Compete in a series of 30 challenges designed to put even the most seasoned players to the test.
  • Compete – Reach the top of global leaderboards for arcade and individual challenge modes.
  • Bring a Friend – Play local co-op in every mode, surviving the depths of space together.
  • Get in the Groove – Space out to an original score by Megan McDuffee.
