Minimalist Arcade Shooter Z-Ray Blasts Onto Android
A stylish new survival shooter that manages to merge minimalist graphics with a chaotic arcadey atmosphere called Z-Ray has arrived on Android. This touch screen oriented shoot em up from indie developer 06Systems challenges players with surviving an onslaught of deadly orbs by dragging and releasing to fire a laser before they can do any damage. These orbs won’t go down easy however as they come in several different varieties and tend to dance around the screen in mesmerizing fashion.
While there are only a handful of ways to do a touch screen shooter properly Z-Ray approaches things a little bit differently with an intuitive control scheme that requires precision to properly master. As players fight their way through the circular mob they’ll encounter enemies like orbs that leave behind a shield trail for their brethren and cluster orbs that take a lot of hits to bring down. There’s also a neat timing based mode where players attempt to line up their shots with a rapidly orbiting target. If you’re into shoot ’em ups Z-Ray is one to check out.
Z-Ray is free to download on Google Play.
