Space Shooter X comes to Windows Phone, spacecraft destruction ensues
Space Shooter X is one of the latest arcade space shooters to land on the Windows Phone Store. It is a classic example of a sci-fi shoot-'em-up title, a genre that was invented by Space Invaders, the classic 1978 game. The developers claim that Space Shooter X is inspired by Raiden, another all-time space shooter classic.

The players of Space Shooter X have one simple goal – destroy as many enemy spaceships as possible, "win battles against big bad bosses, and travel through the galaxy". The various enemies and adversaries will emerge from all sides, and each one of these foes will require players to use a different strategy in order to destroy them. Lots of power-ups and weapon upgrades are available, too. Different types of lasers, missiles, and torpedoes can be installed on the player's spacecraft. In case you die, however, you lose all of your upgrades.

Space Shooter X comes with modest 2D graphics and visual effects. Controlling your ship couldn't be easier – once you touch your screen, your spacecraft starts shooting, and in order to avoid obstacles or enemy fire, you can move your spacecraft either left or right by swiping the screen.

The game is available for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 devices. Space Shooter X is ad-supported, which means that it's free to download and play the game, but if you want to get rid of the ads, you will need to make an in-app purchase.

Space Shooter X is nothing to write home about, but it might help you kill some time with its straightforward gameplay.

What's holding me from switching over or atleast owning a WP device is Google's play store, services and their first party apps and a good notification centre. I tried out Nokia Lumia 525 recently. It was good, fast and a great experience but for the above. And about the Nokia Lumia 1020, "Bouy! Oh Bouy. No words. That. badass camera." (I have a 808 pureview) I will probably try the OS again after the WP 8.1 update.

A premium camera isn't worth giving up what you want.. If you're that into Google services then a WP device will not suite your needs anytime soon... But, if you do try out a WP device, and are open minded to using MS services, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised......

I use WP everyday... It's more than enough Smartphone for the average user, and then some.. But, 8.1 will bring some features, like separate volume controls, that are annoying if missing... Just keep in mind that the 1020, and 1520 are definitely getting 8.1, and supposedly all Lumia devices are capable of the update... So, the Icon is OK to buy now..
