If the worlds of Battlestar Galactica and StarFox were to collide, the ensuing spinoff would be BlastPoints.
That's a difficult pill to swallow for those hoping for a 13th model of anthropomorphic fox Cylon, I know, but BlastPoints has plenty to offer if you're looking for a 3D space shooter.
Set in a dystopian future where rogue computer-controlled spaceships rise up against the plucky forces of humanity, BlastPoints recalls the glory days of PC-based space combat shooters while mixing in modern graphics and episodic missions well-suited to gaming on the go.
Lush graphics and free-roaming environments compensate for a steep learning curve, spotty controls, and a reliance on in-app purchases
