  • Summary: Smooth controls and non-stop action await you in this completely FREE 3D space shooter! Team up with Colonel Seth Blair and his legendary drop-ship Omnithias as you attempt to bring stability to a volatile region of Quantum Space. Featuring:• Simple and Innovative Controls: just tap your enemies to engage them, or tilt to steer your ship manually.• Intense 3D Battles, complete with Gigantic Bosses await you in every level.• Dynamically Adjusting HD Graphics: specifically tailored for all iOS devices.• Adaptive AI: provides a challenge for experienced players while showing mercy to the newcomers.• No Loading between missions and no downtime during game play.• Inspiring Soundtrack: with over 40 minutes of original music specifically fitted to accompany your experience. (With absolutely NO cheap techno-loops)• Action-Oriented Story: told through the com-sat radio of your starship, with full voice-overs for the game's array of quirky characters.• No ads and no strings attached: everything that exists in the game is yours, completely FREE. In-Game Options Menu allows you to adjust:Tilt Controls: "Normal" (default): tilting left will steer your ship left, and tilting right will steer right. "Reversed": left is right and right is left. "Off": disables the tilt controls altogether in favor of tapping your enemies.Button Location: "Bottom" (default on iPhone/iPod-Touch), "Middle" (default on iPad) and "Top": aimed at iPad users who wish to avoid tilting in favor of tap controls.Background: "Moving" (default): compensates the game's background as you tilt the screen, or "Fixed": old-school non-moving background. If you experience discomfort with the game's tilting motion, the "Fixed" background setting may be preferred. (Also useful when AirPlay Mirroring to a TV, or using the Digital AV Adapter)Story / Voices: "On" (default) or "Off".Music: "On" (default) or "Off".Captions: "On" (default) or "Off". Game Play Basics:Steer your ship manually by tilting your device left and right, or tap your enemies to engage the "Autopilot". Combine both methods for best results, as each of the control schemes is always at your disposal by default.Your ship is outfitted with 2 forward weapons and a single aft weapon. To maximize damage, it is best to be facing your enemies directly before pressing the right "Weapons/Fire" button. Holding the left "Shield" button will allow you to deflect the enemy projectiles. Prolonged use of the Weapons/Shields will cause a temporary overload. Note that it is NOT possible to fire your weapons while Shields are active.Successfully completing each mission will unlock new game levels. Replaying any of the missions without failing will provide you with an added degree of difficulty. For an even greater endless challenge, try your luck at the survival-style "Gauntlet" simulation levels, which will be automatically unlocked upon successful completion of all story driven missions.Lastly: everything that exists in the game is being made available to you completely FREE of charge. If you enjoyed Quantum Legacy and all that it has to offer, consider pressing the "Support The Game" button at the map selection screen. As an added bonus, supporting the game will also grant you an automatic unlock of all present and future game levels as soon as they are released in the upcoming content updates (useful if you wish to forgo the grind of unlocking each level manually, or if you wish to unlock all missions instantly on multiple iOS devices). NOTES:Due to the limitations of old iOS hardware, the game's visual quality will be automatically lowered on the 1st/2nd generation iPhone/iPod-Touch devices.If you experience problems running the game, please report your issue in detail via the "Quantum Legacy Support" link below: Expand

    I never would've expected Quantum Legacy HD to have strategic elements hidden underneath the arcade on-rails shooting, but it does and it's all the better for it. Scouring the galaxy for badguys ends up being quite a bit of fun. The kind of fun that just about any iOS gamer can enjoy.

    Quantum Legacy is a nice space shooter, with some very good graphics and excellent controls. What a pity there are only a few missions, at least for now.

    When all is said and done Quantum Legacy HD was a clever idea that in the end worked less well. Combining on rails shooter mechanics with one to one dogfighting never really gets exciting.

    Fans of the original free release will appreciate the vast amount of upgrades of this great looking game, but the gameplay is just too simplistic to hold most gamers' attention.
