  • Summary: ON SALE! 50% OFF FOR LAUNCH WEEK!ByteSize Games is proud to present FlipShip, the addictive space-based action game where one tap is all you need to turn the tables and score big. In FlipShip, your goal is deceptively simple: tilt your device to move towards enemies of the same color, then let your ship’s automatic firing function take care of the rest. But watch out! Destroying enemies will raise your combo, but it won’t score you points. For that you’ll need to tap the screen, “flipping” your ship into its opposite color and flipping your enemies from predators to prey. Of course, “flipping” also reduces your combo back to zero, so you’ll want to see just how long you can hang on without tapping that screen.Should you “flip” or should you flee? Score now or hold out for the promise of even bigger rewards?In FlipShip, the choice is yours.REVIEWS:"FlipShip is a terrific little high score chaser that is nigh impossible to put down.

    Replay value is great, with a strong "one more try" vibe.

    FlipShip manages to take elements of a few terrific games and combine them into something fresh and new, proving once again that the whole can sometimes be greater than the sum of its parts. We would've liked to see a few more modes thrown into the mix, but overall, FlipShip is a terrific little high score chaser that nigh impossible to put down. Consider this one a must buy.

    Kudos to the developers of Flip Ship for not succumbing to the obvious trend to micropayments. When you buy Flip Ship, you get a self-contained package where high scores are strictly and entirely a matter of how good, lucky, and persistent you are. Put away your nickels, because they aren't any help here. Flip Ship is all about the choices you make.

    Playing this game may even tell you something about your own character. How confident and greedy are you – will you gamble for the high score, or flip?

    FlipShip isn't the most original shooter, but genre fans will enjoy the ride.
