Time to lace up your space boots and make the jump to warp speed for some serious space battles on your mobile device. Cosmonauts is a straight forward turn based strategy game that allows you to take control of your very own space craft and battle other aliens via single player campaign or friends in multiplayer mode. Take on the universe by using an array of weapons and power ups to blast your foe into the furthest reaches of space. Space combat has never looked so good as Cosmonauts boasts highly detailed and colorful graphics that really add to the enjoyment of each battle.
During battle, each side takes a turn firing a select weapon of their choice with a catapult type aiming system in hopes of making a direct hit on their opponents ship. During your turn, there are numerous power ups that can be activated by shooting these items before actually hitting your final target. The greater the height and distance of your shot, the more damage it will inflict. If you can launch your shot through a power boost, you will affect the firepower of your shot increasing the damage dealt at the opposite end. Correct timing and trajectory can result in a winning kill shot capable of ending the game in a single turn. The game itself is very easy to pick up and play but really takes time to master. Each weapon possesses special abilities that you can activate by tapping the screen, such as splitting your rocket into three projectiles mid-flight for even more damage. If you can time it perfectly and call your shot, you can use a combination of power ups through each level that include asteroids, moons, power boosters and even health packs. Every item you encounter becomes crucial for your success so be sure to make the right moves otherwise you might find yourself floating home.
Superplaygames has really put together one beautiful, fun game for your iOS device that you shouldn’t hesitate to pick up. I’ve always been a fan of turn based strategy games and felt right at home with Cosmonauts the minute I began my training.
