·    “The strategic color flipping concept works really well.” – TouchArcade

·    “Replay value is great, with a strong ‘one more try’ vibe, multiple difficulty levels, and GameCenter integration for a global leaderboard and a huge amount of achievements to earn.” – AppSmile

·    “…has more bite – and thoughtful gameplay – than the average mobile shooter.” – PocketGamer

·    “…a super fun game that any fan of Geometry Wars should give a look.” – TapGamers

In FlipShip, your goal is deceptively simple: tilt your device to move towards enemies of the same color, then let your ship’s automatic firing function take care of the rest. But watch out! Destroying enemies will raise your combo, but it won’t score you points. For that you’ll need to tap the screen, “flipping” your ship into its opposite color and flipping your enemies from predators to prey. Of course, “flipping” also reduces your combo back to zero, so you’ll want to see just how long you can hang on without tapping that screen.

Should you “flip” or should you flee? Score now or hold out for the promise of even bigger rewards?

In FlipShip, the choice is yours.
