    Do you have what it takes to take command of a fleet of Lightblade Drones? Translate your taps and swipes to pilot a fast and responsive fighter, and bring destruction to the waves of enemy chopper drones...


    Race to save the trees! Nature is under attack by a rampant and out of control FANGLE Artificial Intelligence! It has gone crazy and thinks that it needs all the wood in the world, from the last trees on Earth.

    We need your human touch to stop it! You'll drop in and collect parts from destroyed enemies, which will go towards building replacement Lightblade Drones for you to pilot towards victory!

    Our drone combat operations are proud to be 100% renewable.

    * Unique intuitive flying and combat controls for a top-down action shooter
    * You'll battle across fully 3D islands with unique terrain challenges
    * Free to play 3 islands, and one-time purchase unlocks the whole game
    * Unlocks drone upgrades as you progress through harder and harder battles

    All new islands, refined gameplay experience - it's been more than a year since the last beta, and a lot has been improved and fine-tuned for the gameplay.

    Looking for any feedback about the player strength, enemy strength, speed, controls etc. Thanks for testing and any feedback posts here!

    Going to release this shortly as FREE for the first 3 levels, and a reasonable one-time in app purchase for the full set of levels.

    Hey Touch Arcade Friends -- New Beta Available!


    Got some great feedback on the previous version, very helpful!

    Here's what's new:

    1. *Navigation Training Mode* - on the first island, you are dropped in with 5 navigation points to fly through so you can get your bearings piloting the Lightblade. Clear those navigation points and then the enemy drone action starts! Also the first island always shows the gameplay mechanics tutorial animations.

    2. *Updated Controls* - similar to typical 'twin stick' touch controls, you can swipe and hold a direction to keep flying in that direction. This gives the benefit of being able to keep your fingers down like twin sticks, but it works anywhere on screen so you can keep up with the action, and not have to always keep a finger in a corner.

    3. *Zoomed out the flying view* by 150%, to give a wider view of the terrain and incoming enemy drones.

    4. *Trees* Generated slightly less trees to make flying around easier. Also bumping into trees will give an auto boost to help fly over them.

    5. *Respawn Parts Costs* have been reduced - now intro levels only need 10 parts to build a new Lightblade. Makes it easier to get started and used to the fast-paced combat.

    Thanks to the testers out there -- happy to hear any and all feedback or questions. Cheers!
