    Blast Waves is a tactical shooter with rogue-like elements where you play as a grunt just trying to survive a galaxy-spanning conflict.
    • Features
      • Rapidly build and upgrade a squad as you progress through multiple battles, against increasingly overwhelming odds.

      • Upgrade a trooper and his/her primary weapon as you gain commendations and skills for each battle survived. Every high score is a war hero with his/her own storied past.

      • Unlock new armor sets, power ups, and character origins, each with their own unique starting weapons and attributes.

      • Lay out your troops before each engagement, maximizing the use of cover and destructible terrain

    • Gameplay/Controls
      • Time only moves as you move or take actions.

      • Drag your character to create a path for them to move on.

      • Tap and hold to crouch and pass time manually. Crouching near cover grants directional defense bonuses..

      • Drag anywhere else and release to am and fire your weapon
        • Alternative controls- tap target area to fire

    • Not 100% sure on the release date. Could be 1-2 months depending on feedback. Lockdown’s made getting testers a little tougher than usual, so i’m opening this up to a beta a lot earlier than my other projects (it’s pretty crispy)- a few things are still WIP:
      • Secondary mission types

      • High score/medal mode

      • Advanced weapon unlocks

      • Advanced starting class unlocks
    • Would appreciate qualitative feedback as well as bug reports. Thanks!

    All 3 of his games get equal playtime from me. I was shocked when Immortal Rogue was released. I was still playing Ever Knight and Immortal Rogue took me by surprise. The two games are so different. And of course, End of the Universe was a very entertaining follow-up, as well. As you can see, I’m so excited to finally see what Mr. Barrett is doing next. Thank you for this post!

    It's Alive! Apologies for the long delay, I had to put publishing this project on hold for a while. Huge thanks to everyone who kept playing and providing feedback along the way. I made this project during lockdown with a target audience of just me and a few friends, so its great to see others taking a liking to it (we logged 1000s of test sessions).

    iOS/Android Release Date: December 16th, 2021.
    $3.99 USD

    Pre Order Links:
    IOS
    Android

    Cheers!
