Most of the time, you’re not going to hear me say that a new game is better than an old one. There is just something about the simplicity of side-scrolling arcade classics that hold a place in my heart that will never be filled with all the fancy graphics and 3D gameplay. Alpha Zero fits in the middle of these two generations. It is a 2D game with simple, shoot-em-up action, but implements two-handed touch screen controls for today’s gamer.
Players control an experimental spaceship whose AI brain is smart enough to know when to find the missiles to help shoot down the big dogs. There are only two things you’ll need to do in this game, shoot and move.
