Official description

"Alien Dominion: The Acronian Encounter" is an a 3d space shooter game for the PC/Windows platform intended to be downloaded from various game portals. The player is in a role of a gunner/shooter of a ship escaping an alien invasion in order to warn the rest of humanity of the incoming attack. It’s basically a rail shooter, so the player does not control the ship only defends it.

There are 2 gun groups attached to the ship: upper and lower. As the player drags the mouse the cannon groups are switched to cover all the space around the ship. Each level has it’s story, but basically you need to take down all/most of the targets that are attacking and thus to survive.

The levels last for 10 minutes each and are finished once the player reaches that time point – and is alive. The last level lasts a bit longer (15 minutes). The game contains 6 levels.

After the level completion there is a shop with various utilities and armaments. Eg. better guns, shields, time-warp (slowdown), gun enhancements etc. Money(crystals) is gained by destroying alien ships – the better shooter you are more crystals for use in the shop.

Are you up to the challenge space warrior?

Game Features:
* Fastest and most intense 3d space shooter game you have ever seen – feel free to compare it to other games!
* The ship is driven by the pilot, and you defend with 2 turrets (upper and lower) covering all the space around the vessel (this is a 3d "rail" shooter game)
* Unique feel of intense battle and adrenalin pumping trough your veins
* 6 blood pounding missions with great heavy metal tracks while shooting down the invading force, with an option of muting the music if you rather prefer silence or playing some custom tunes on your favorite player in the background
* Hours and hours of fun play before you successfully survive the last world and inform humanity about the Acronians – rewarded by a neat animation at the end
* Over one hour of constant action needed to finish the game (if you survive all the levels in a row, that is...)
* 4 levels of difficulty (Rookie, Normal, Ace and Abnormal)
* Incredible environments and planets (you can’t land, that’s a decoration only, but very detailed I should add). Indie or casual games ususally do not have that.
* Flexible graphics settings to meet your hardware – indie or casual games usually do not have this – you can check the features and minimal/recommended specifications here
* 3d explosions with debris falling of everything you shoot at, plus beautiful particle effects
* Shop available at the end of each level: weapon, add-ons, shields, utilities, repair-bots... everything to make you happy.
* Intro and game complete cut-scenes
* Listen to in game chat of pilot, gunner and the ship’s AI to find out what happened meanwhile...
