Defend yourself against the endless waves of arcs that threaten to send your universe into the void. You must maneuver your paddles to block the onslaught of approaching arcs. Arcs approach at varying speeds, trajectories and patterns, so stay alert and be ready for anything!
ShadowArc features hours of gameplay and replayability with numerous levels spread across the different Zones. You’ll learn the basics of the game in the Elemental Zone levels. The Synthetic Zone will challenge your ability to earn 3 stars on each level as the arcs start to learn new tricks. The Vector Zone challenges the elite player with an array of furious and frantic levels. The Infinity Zone adds in linger arcs and lightning arcs, which will keep even the most experienced player on their toes. The Matrix Zone walks the fine line between the possible and the impossible. For infinite replayability, each zone also contains its own endless mode.
The Arcs aren’t the only ones with tricks. Throughout the game, you may acquire power ups like nukes and temporary invincibility. As you earn coins, there are many ways to upgrade your capabilities, like upgrading to more hearts to withstand more hits or upgrading to more inventory slots to hold more power ups.

Settings include control type and size, music path and music and sound effects volume. Before complaining about the controls, please test them for a while to see which one suits you the best. Also try different control sizes. Also supports game pads, tested with PS3 controller using Sixaxis controller app, Nyko Bluetooth controller and with NVIDIA SHIELD.
The first time the game is started, it will select control type and size based on your device properties. If a gamepad is connected, controls will be hidden and fullscreen is enabled where available. Key mappings are done in the control settings. Gamepad control supports analog joystick for movement.
Touch control types:
Multi touch swipe:
Lower part of display is used to swipe left and right to move the blaster. Right side buttons used for shooting, jumping and superzap. This is the default control for Android 2.2+ devices with true multi touch.
Dual touch swipe:
Similar to multi touch swipe, but for devices without true multi touch. Lower part of display is used to swipe left and right to move the blaster and simultaneously shoot, and swipe up to jump. Right side buttons used for superzap. This is the default control for Android 2.2+ that does not have true multi touch.
Single touch arrows:
Use on devices without multi touch. Controlled with one finger, typically the thumb. Side-arrows area moves while shooting. Up arrow area moves and shoots and jumps when available. Top area superzaps. Center area does not move, the further out on the arrows, the faster movement.
Multi touch arrows:
Use on devices with multi touch. Left side similar to single touch arrows for moving. Right side buttons used for shooting, jumping and superzap. This control type works well with the touch emulated Sixaxis controller.
Multi touch circular:
Use finger to rotate around the circular control on the left side. Right side buttons used for shooting, jumping and superzap.
On Android 4.0+ and devices with soft keys, there is an option to go to real fullscreen mode. Note that this does not work when using touch controls, only when using keyboard or gamepad.
For some older devices, performance may be increased by setting the sound effect volume to zero.
For copyright reasons, the original Tempest 2000 music is not included in the game, but any background music can be selected in the settings. The Tempest 2000 soundtrack is available if you google for it. Or buy it, if you can. It's good.
