Simon Jacobs of mobile development group Xen Games recently sent us details on an upcoming 3D space shooter they will soon be bringing to the iPhone platform.

Rebel Onslaught puts the player in control (via tilt or onscreen joypad) of an advanced space fighter facing hordes of alien invaders of several varieties, including gun turrets, fighters, landing ships and bosses.  Combat ranges across various environments (Earth levels, alien battleship levels, etc.) and involves dodging incoming enemy fire and obstacles while targeting enemy forces.

Rebel Onslaught appears similar to Xen Games' existing mobile title Interstellar Flames, available for Windows Mobile, PalmOS, and Symbian platforms.

Stay tuned for a closer look at this title when it becomes available in the App Store.

    Just finished playing Rebel Onslaught and it is everything that it claimed to be. The tilt controls, crisp graphics and response time are all top notch. This is a game well worth the money. Great job Xen Games.

    This game is not fun. When you continue play after a 'game over' you are only given one life. This needs to change! Should be given the default amount of life upon game restart.
