What's New in Version 2.2.1Fixes small issues with certain localizations
Phoenix HD 2.2:
* A new ship: The Striker!
Shooting a lot of missiles is always awesome, and the Striker delivers exactly that! Hold down your finger to let the Striker automatically lock on all targets on the screen, then release your finger to fire the missiles. Repeat until no enemy is standing in your way. Holding down for a longer time improves the locks so stronger missiles will be fired. Can you hold your fire long enough to lock the level 3 missiles? The Striker is available via in-app purchase.
* Full Game Controller Support
This update improves support for iOS 7 Game Controllers. Use the right triggers to use the current held power-up. Press the 'A' button to perform a special action (Phantom Ghost Mode, Striker Fire Missiles), and hold the 'B' button to amplify the inputs of the joysticks for quick dodging.
* Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina
Phoenix HD now runs at Retina resolution on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina.
