    Not a clone of asteroids...not quite Geometry Wars...it's kinda unique all by itself that you have no guns except sucking up ions and heating up asteroids and or ships till they eventually explode or collect as many as you can and shoot it... takes time to get used to the mechanics but I've found myself spending a lot of time playing this and enjoying the boss fights in each sector too... the female voice announcer is well done as well.

    Either you hate or love this game and sit for a 30 minute sessions trying to beat your own or the leaderboard high scores like I did. Graphics are something special and should run super fast on any mid-end computer or laptop.

    If you can get it on sale then GRAB IT! really worth it.

    Ion Assault has a great physics engine and some pretty awesome graphics but that's where the game stops being interesting. Gameplay is plain, way too plain.

    A gorgeous and creative spin on the arena shooter formula. [Feb 2011, p.60]

    Ion Assault is an arcade space shooter that has not really a lot in common with the typical arcade shooter. The beautiful art and level design is the best special feature in this game while the sound settings are really weak.
