Description

GraviTicks is a 3D gravity simulation space shooter. Orbit around planets to gather Graviton energy and use it to navigate and fire. Giant Space Ticks are sucking the magnetic field energy from our planets. Stop them before it's too late!


***** The Story *****

A newly discovered predator known as a Space Tick is threatening the solar system. These nasty bugs feed off the gravitational field of planets, weakening them and causing the planet's eventual demise. If they persist, their actions will completely throw off the solar system's stability and eventually destroy the earth.

The spacecraft SATEL1 is a multi-nation effort to thwart the impending doom to our solar system. The great scientists of the world developed the first anti-gravity propulsion system that absorbs planetary graviton energy and uses it to seek and destroy the Space Ticks.

The future seems bleak, but the cooperation of the world's governments is helping re-stabilize our solar system. SATEL1 is just the first development from Earth's greatest scientists to remove the threat of the gravity eating Space Ticks. While you are on your mission, they are currently working around the clock to develop new and more powerful tools for fighting Space Ticks.

In the meantime, the safety of the solar system depends on you. Take control and destroy as many Space Ticks as you can...


***** Game Controls *****


Controlling Spacecraft:
Your SATEL1 spacecraft stores and uses graviton energy. To make the spacecraft move up and down, tilt the device forward or back. To make it turn, rotate the device left or right, like a steering wheel. The Thrust button will speed up your spacecraft and the Retro button will slow it down. The faster you go, the more difficult it is to turn, as gravity has less effect on your spacecraft.


Charging GravBombs:
Pressing your finger on the screen (not on a button) starts charging the GravBomb. The longer you hold your finger down the more destructive power the GravBomb will have.


Firing GravBombs:
Releasing your finger on desired target fires the GravBomb at it. Releasing your finger on an empty area of the screen, fires it straight ahead.


Removing Space Ticks:
The GravBomb sends a gravitational shock wave through the planets high above its atmosphere and shocks the Space Tick. Over time, the Space Ticks become more resistant to these shocks and more GravBombs are required to destroy them.


Graviton Energy Collection:
Collect energy by navigating your spacecraft into a tight orbit around a planet. The sun is a graviton grounding point (GGP), so SATEL1 is unaffected by its gravity, increasing the planets' gravitational strength. The closer you get to the planet, the more gravitons your spacecraft collects the more energy you will store. If you reach zero energy, and continue to Thrust, Retro or fire, you will damage the ship.


Game Points:
Points measure your progress in eliminating Space Ticks. Gather points by collecting gravitons and destroying the Space Ticks quickly. The longer a Space Tick feeds on a planet, the less points it is worth.


Explore Mode:
This is the SATEL1 training simulator. Learn to fly around the solar system without any nasty Space Ticks mucking things up. Tap on the yellow arrow to cycle through the planets.
