    Earth is under attack! A tireless alien menace has begun a relentless assault against the cradle of humanity. The best defence we have against the invaders is the Earth Orbital Defence Force (EODF).

    Orbital Defence is an arcade-style, flick-based shoot-'em-up (flick-shmup) reminiscent of the great shoot-'em-ups of the past, such as Galaga, Missile Command and Space Invaders.

    "This is definitely one of the best games of this kind of game I've ever played! It's well thought out, has really clean graphics and is just plain fun!"
    — game reviewer Tyler Flowers

    What makes Orbital Defence unique is its flick-based control system, which makes the most of the touch-oriented control surface—the result of which is a highly playable and great fun shoot 'em up that you can play in a cafe, on the train, on the bus, in the pub...anywhere you take your iPhone or iPod Touch.

    Work your way through the 12-level Campaign mode or try your hand at Survival mode, where your only goal is to survive as long as you can.

    We've even added Facebook integration so your friends can see how awesome you are.

    This is a simple but very cool little game. It's like Galaga, but you flick with your finger to shoot the nasties. I've been playing this gameThis is a simple but very cool little game. It's like Galaga, but you flick with your finger to shoot the nasties. I've been playing this game on the train to work now and then for 3 years and I still love it, which is pretty much the best thing I reckon you can say about any game. Highly recommended. Expand
