It's hard not to get a little excited when you talk about Atlantis Sky Patrol (ASP), because it's such a good game that you'll want to show it off. ASP is Big Fish Game's response to the arcade marble-match genre and it's large, fun and amazingly hard to turn off.
Unlike a lot of other similar games, there's only one control scheme available. In minimizing the controls, a lot more effort has gone in to ensuring its accuracy and usefulness. The ability to swap your current marble is activated by a shake, but thankfully this can have its sensitivity modified so you're not waving the iPhone around dangerously. Due to the need to drag your firing platform around, fine tuned aiming can be ruined as you release your finger, but it's rarely the reason a level is failed.
ASP sports an art deco style that can get hard to read on small print, but is otherwise gorgeous to look at while playing. Most of the special effects are fairly minimal, but they also make the game much smoother to play. The campaign itself sports 111 levels and with bonus stages every few levels you'll soon have every upgrade for your ship.
The gameplay may be fairly standard as all of the marble-matching games tend to be, but combined with the slick art and the unique mechanic of disabling the waves by matching marbles not on the path creates a fun balance. If you're going to make a marble-game part of your collection, this is the one to get.

"Fantastic game-play, boatloads of content, and unique power-ups and obstacles will surely adhere you to your device for hours. This is the cream of the crop marble shooter."
It’s your job to take flight and knock out more than 100 doomsday devices that have been planted around the world. Travel to each destination on the map and eliminate chains of marbles by strategically matching colors in sets of three. Knock out cleverly placed stationary marbles to block additional chains from entering the track and destroy the device on each level. Easy to learn, but difficult to master, this unique new twist on the classic marble-popping game is nearly impossible to put down!
