Finally, a mobile game for gamers! Pioneering software tech brings console-like control and gameplay to touch screens, Steam, and UWP in this classic shooter, inspired by the 16-bit era, the golden age of space games, and the game Star Control in particular. Dodge, weave, spin, shoot. Use a planet's gravity for a speed slingshot, or draw your pursuer into a fatal collision with an explosive asteroid. This is real gameplay, dependent on reactions and skilful execution.

ionAXXIA released and available to play now!


After some two years of work, ionAXXIA is now publicly available in Early Access form, on Steam and Android. I set out to create a classic top-down space shooter with the playability of the 16 bit classics, and to make it playable as such on touch screens as if they were portable gaming machines like Vita and Switch. The end result is the best arcade action on every device, and this Early Access release makes it available for everyone to try and feed-back to improve.

Arcade action


In this first release you can experience the core concepts of taking to the skies in ships you design.

Design your own ships


A wealth of control schemes means you can find one that gives you exactly the experience you want, whether core controller style or with casual mobile tap controls, and even change it up between plays and devices.

Highly customisable controls


Development is progressing according to my philosophy or 'Progressive Development', ensuring releases and updates provide a level of quality worthy of your time. The roadmap can be viewed here and shows what you can look forwards to over the coming months.

ionAXXIA Roadmap


So give it a look and let me know what you think on either the forums here or through whichever platform you try it on.

Cheers!
