Orbital Defence is an arcade shoot-'em-up inspired by greats like Galaga and Missile Command. What makes Orbital Defence unique is its flick-based control system, which makes for a highly playable and great fun shoot 'em up.

With both a 12-level Campaign mode that rewards accuracy and a Survival mode that challlenges you to survive as long as you can, Orbital Defence offers great gameplay depth and shows that the iPhone can be a serious gaming device, not just a casual gaming experience.
