Lumiappaday #220: Smashing Planets demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

| June 22, 2012 | 4 Replies

The developer of Smashing Planets contacted us 3 weeks ago about their game. It’s pretty good, a very polished game where you have to defend your planet against incoming attack by guiding the missile path towards your enemies. There’s a level mode and and endless survival mode.

This is really well priced, at £0.79 it’s worth it. You do get a generous trial to give it a go though to see if you’ll like it but note, there is no survival mode. It’s a fun and cute game and you should definitely give this one a go.
