"RocketHands has a real winner with Halogen that is worth the $4.99" Indie Game Mag, Issue #11
"...perfect for a trip back to when arcade gaming wasn't about polygon count; it was about fun. And boy, is this fun." Games Uncovered
"Halogen is what would happen if Air Hockey and Galaxian had a baby and bottle fed him with lemonade and sherbet." Ancient Proverb
Halogen is a fun, fast paced action game which pits you and your pucks against hordes of enemies in a battle to clear a drifting space dreadnought of crazed droids. Deflect your pucks and smash the droids where it hurts! Mow down the enemy onslaught en masse to rack up insane scores! Activate the coloured reactors on each level and liberate enough Halogen elements to shut down each section of the ship, until all that remains is a final inexorable confrontation! In SPAAACE!
Completing levels unlocks them in Practice Mode, which you can then play as little bite sized chunks of fun when you need a quick fix for your Halogen addiction. On the train, in the bath, taking your wedding vows: whenever you need it, Halogen will be there!
But if you are one of those people (and we know you are out there) who are after more of a challenge, more of an epic struggle, more of a masochistic assault on your self esteem, then the challenge of Halogen's single player mode is for you! If Old School were an actual place (which it really should be), then Halogen's single player mode would be its bespectacled disciplinarian headmistress.
All you need is a finger, a finger to become an astral bridge between the mundane reality of your worldly existence, and the mass of glowing pixel love that is your paddle. Now smash those pucks!
Single Player Mode:
With 16 levels of pixel pounding action, single player mode is no pushover. You will face a variety of enemies who all have different ideas of how to best dispatch you, and powerful Guardian Bosses armed with devastating attacks. Mercifully, completed levels are available for practice so that you can hone your skills to a needle point before you attempt the real deal.
The only limits here are your reflexes, and the known boundaries of human endurance. Face wave after relentless wave in the quest for the ultimate high score!
Two players compete head to head in a traditional Air Hockey style arena. Nothing more, nothing less.
Halogen is OpenFeint Enabled, with both local device and global leaderboards, and achievements to unlock including "Octopucks!", "Smart Bomber", and "100k Club".
