DEMO *Released*!

By RekcahDam

Minimum hardware requirements
Operating Systems:Windows XP or Vista
RAM: 256M
Processor:1.3 Ghz Intel Celeron M or any comparable AMD/Intel Processor
GPU: ATI 9000, Nvdia Geforce 4MX 32 MB or a equivalent OpenGL compatible GPU
150 MB of hard drive space is required !
Note: If you meet the minimum requirements and have performance issues please lower your resolution in 'Options' at the 'Display' menu.

Controls
Default controls are mapped to the keyboard. Movement controls are mapped to the arrow keys and fire is mapped to the 'Z' key. To activate your shield press the 'X' key on the keyboard. The controls may be changed in the Options menu under “Controls” by pressing the 'Esc' key anytime during gameplay. You may also use a gamepad to play this game.
Note: Please use the mouse to select the gamepad map and keyboard mapping menus.
Gameplay
Wings of Apocalypse sports much of the same gameplay mechanics as many other shoot em ups but with a twist! Each character in the game has Deflector Shield in which he or she may deflect enemy attacks of the same color. For example; Naomi's Deflector Shield is Red, therefore she may only deflect Red enemy fire!
Depending on which character you choose, the difficulty of the game will change. Although the environment is exactly the same for each character, the opportunity to deflect enemy attacks are not. If the player chooses Roger he/she will be able to deflect almost all attacks because there are usually more blue enemies in the game. In other words Roger is easy difficulty, Bryan medium and Naomi Hard.

Wings of Apocalypse v0.58 is now available for download (link has been removed)!
Download the binaries/portable version here!

Story (short version)

The human race is under attack by what is known to be an alien force. To combat this force a unified military has formed temporarily. After being on the defensive for many years EUM ( Earths Unified Military) gathered an Aerial Assault team to carry out extremely dangerous missions and battle objectives. To do this, EUM gathered together the best pilots around the world into 5 teams. The story begins with AA Team 5. Their operation is code named “STOP APOCALYPSE.”


Gameplay

Wings of Apocalypse sports much of the same gameplay mechanics as many other shoot ups but with a twist! Each character in the game has Deflector Shield in which he or she may deflect enemy attacks of the same color. For example; Naomi's Deflector Shield is Red, therefore she may only deflect Red enemy fire!

Depending on which character you choose, the difficulty of the game will change. Although the gameplay is exactly the same for each character, the opportunity to deflect enemy attacks are not. If the player chooses Roger he/she will be be able to deflect almost all attacks because there are usually more blue enemies in the game. In other words Roger is easy difficulty, Bryan medium and Naomi Hard.




Controls

Default controls are mapped to the keyboard and mouse. The 'W' key is up, 'S' key is down, 'D' key is right and 'A' key is left. Use the left mouse button to Fire and right mouse button to activate your Deflector. In order to change the position of the deflector with the mouse you must move the red-yellow cursor in the direction and position you desire to deflect by moving the mouse. Once the cursor is in the desired direction and position, press the right mouse button in order to activate the Deflector and release the right mouse button to deactivate it.

The controls may be changed in the Options menu under “Controls” by pressing the 'Esc' key anytime during gameplay. You may also use a gamepad to play this game. We recommend a gamepad with a right and left analog and shoulder buttons to play this game. The right analog stick on a gamepad will automatically map itself to the Deflector controls.

Note:It is recommended for the Player to use a Xbox 360 Controller for the best control experience!
