Battle your way through space with Alpha Zero for BlackBerry 10

Looking for a slice of space combat? If you have jumped over to BlackBerry 10 then Alpha Zero is the place to be. You must guide your space craft through dozens of levels, fighting off the barrage of enemy ships that will try and attack you. Just to make things harder there are numerous 'big bosses' to contend with who take a bit more work to destroy.

From start to finish Alpha Zero portrays a story, so in between levels the game will talk to you and give visuals onscreen. I'm not a huge fan of this as I like to get straight to the action so luckily you have the option to skip these.

There are several options when it comes to controlling your space craft. I opted for the one called 'touch controls' and this lets you move the spaceship with one thumb and use the other to guide where you wish the weapons to fire. On the subject of weapons; you start with a standard laser but there are others to collect along the way. There is a small weapons tab at the top of the screen so switching from lasers to missiles for example is simple. Once you have used up the allocated number of extra weapons you can get more from the shop. To earn credits for this you collect orange orb type things throughout the game which appear when you destroy the enemy.

Alpha Zero is action packed and has great graphics and sound effects. A real must for you space game fans out there. Priced at £2.00/$2.99 it isn't the cheapest but it is a load of fun.

Battle your way through space with Alpha Zero for BlackBerry 10


man BlackBerry really picked up the consumer aspect of their devices. gaming is top notch on the QNX platforms, even the PlayBook has steller gaming

I am amazed how many apps they have now.
How in the world can I go through them all?
There are soooooo many of them. Which are your top 10 games so far James?

Can you tell me your top FREE ones, and your top PAID ones?

You should also list them somehow on the CrackBerry site.


Sector Strike would definitely be one of my top ten free games.
If you don't have it yet get it, it's a very good game.
(I have it on my Playbook)

I'm happy we got all these games and all but let's not forget that BlackBerry users are usually people that do. Where are the productivity apps, pdf creators, will we still have print to go, any print from device to printer apps, i would love a full powerpoint player. Once again not complaining about the games but I would love to see all the productive apps that create the "mobile computing" experience.
