It’s been quite a whirlwind since Spiel Studios accidentally released their game Man Vs. Missiles (Free) two weeks ahead of schedule just prior to the iTunes holiday shutdown in December. Since that time the game has been downloaded more than a million times and Spiel has released a whopping eight updates which have added in a bit of new content by way of new planes and made a ton of adjustments based on user feedback. Now, barely over a month after release, they are prepping the biggest update yet for Man Vs. Missiles. This Thursday a new update will arrive adding in unique environments for each of the planes in the game, and you can see how some of those will look in the following video.
In case it wasn’t clear, Man Vs. Missiles is an arcade-style avoidance game where you guide a plane as you try and collect coins and power-ups while also avoiding the homing missiles that are chasing after you. The trick is to maneuver your plane in such a way that you cause the missile paths to overlap so that they hit each other rather than you plane. It’s such a simple idea but it fits perfectly as a mobile game, and the mission-based progression system that allows for unlocking new planes and upgrading your power-ups is the sort of thing that adds that “one more go" aspect to the game. Man Vs. Missiles is free with ads and an optional IAP to disable them so there’s no reason not to check it out if you missed it over the holiday break, and look forward to the new content update this Thursday.
