ABOUT THE GAME
The IQ metal, the energy source that powered your civilization, has vanished and you need to find an alternative through the galaxy. But things don’t go as expected. Traveling through the universe you will find out that the IQ metal isn’t as good as you believed. Instead, you will hear about the ultimate weapon, one called Aniquilation, that could help your species forever.
Aniquilation lets players engage in a 3D twin stick shooter that will allow them to use the environment as a weapon. Terraform some planets; use their buildings, elements, and infrastructures as weapons; unlock and upgrade new ships with different skills and abilities as you move forward. Aniquilation also features five different game modes that can be played alone or with friends.
- Enjoy a hectic twin stick shooter for more than 30 levels
- Use the environment in creative ways to destroy your enemies: throw or reflect elements on the surface to clear the surface of any threat
- Play solo or with friends in five game modes: story, defend the base (protect your bases and destroy your enemy’s), goal (score more goals than your opponent), contagion (the player that spends less time infected wins) and free for all (finish your rival and its buildings)
- Choose between different ships, each with its unique set of abilities and skills. Unlock and upgrade new ships as you move forward
