AlphaWave by Hardline Studios - An HD arcade shooter for the BlackBerry PlayBook

I'm always on the lookout for new games for my BlackBerry PlayBook that aren't exactly mainstream (ie Angry Birds). Not that I have anything against Angry Birds, but it's always good to broaden your horizons. I recently discovered AlphaWave by Hardline Studios.While not a familar name, you're sure to recognize the concept.

AlphaWave is a throwback to old school arcade shooters. High definition graphics and a great soundtrack give this game an update and make it more modern, and intense, fast-paced gameplay keeps you coming back for more. Survive through wave after wave of asteroids as they fall down around you, taking on different shapes and speeds. Shoot them out of the sky, and don't let them hit you, and you're on your way to victory. As you progress through the waves the gameplay gets more difficult, really challenging you to make it through. There are three different levels of difficulty to choose from, so as your skill increases you can push yourself with the harder levels.

You can grab a free trial of AlphaWave, or the full version for just a buck, in BlackBerry App World. I hope the developers keep working on the game and release more levels and obstacles. As it stands I think it's worth the $.99 price tag, but I know others out there will soon be looking for more. Check it out!

Hi Michelle, thank you for such a nice review! We are happy you enjoyed our little game.

A lot of people have enjoyed Alpha Wave but are asking for more more MORE!! Well, our users spoke and we certainly listened! There is a slew of new features we'd like to add and we are narrowing down the list and then getting to work!

If anyone has specific things they'd like to see, by all means speak your mind. I can't promise everything will go but we will certainly take the most common requests.

Stay tuned and thanks for your support!

If you can make the game have weapons that can be upgraded as you proceed gaining points.And more cooler maps and levels plus enemies.

not bad game. definitely worth the 99 cents. takes a little practice but is decent time killer :)

playbook is awesome, i share Michelle's taste in games - playbook could be a hardcore platform for games, i think it should be actually - lol

i wanna try this game - lol, i'm broke though, so i guess i can try the demo, don't even have a buck, LMAO

Out of curiosity, I just tried playing this using the Bridge Remote and it worked awesome! I hope more games integrate well with Bridge in the future because games like this look sweet up on an HD TV!

Hi all, thank you for your continued support. Just wanted to let everyone know that we have pushed out a new update to Alpha Wave which adds a second level, a slew of new enemies, a couple of bosses, new soundtrack and more eye candy!

It is z10 ready but you must start the game in landscape mode on the Z10 otherwise it will start in portrait. Bug fix is coming!

Enjoy!
