When you love missile defense games, you’re always looking for a fresh take. PolyBlast offers that, by mixing up how your invaders come at you and limiting how many shots you can take. Some levels of the game give you eight shots from each of your silos, but others provide you with even fewer. The game is a real challenge, with great music and awesome, if simple, graphics.
In its latest update, we see PolyBlast Christmas levels, under a new Seasons menu option. These levels feature holiday-oriented themes, but the same insistence that you plan wisely to complete the level. The music is switched up to a jazzy Christmas carol, and the levels take some awesome seasonal shapes if you let them get that far so you can see. It’s a really fun game, and the Christmas levels help you get into the holiday spirit while shooting down the alien invaders.
The latest update also squishes some bugs, especially ones that plagued the multiplayer mode. The interface has been updated to make it cleaner and more user-friendly, while also adding in the Seasons menu option.
PolyBlast is a free download on the App Store, but is ad-supported. You can unlock four new worlds and remove the ads for an in-app purchase of $0.99.
