Helion, could easily be considered a throwback to the simplistic side scrolling shooters from the past where you pilot a star shaped ship while attempting to destroy everything in your path.
Helion consists of 18 stages packed into 6 visually vibrant levels. 20 different enemy types, 7 different power-ups, and 9 original music tracks. There is no online portion of the game.
When you start the game, you are presented with an informative tutorial that guides you through how to pilot your ship, shoot, pick up objects and other important game mechanics. You begin the game with five lives and you better take care because when there gone the game is over, and even on easy the game can become quite a challenge!
