90% @ Info (31) – “It’s expert execution and addictive playability”
90% @ The One Amiga (56) – “Battle Squadron is so addictive that you just can’t stop playing”

Battle Squadron ONE plays on Android 2.2 and above and includes:
– 2-player split-screen on tablets (world’s first !!)
– 4 fantastically detailed levels to fight your way through
– 4 highly diverse “bosses” to defeat… and scores of different enemies
– 24 different weapons (4 types of 6 grades each) + Nova Missile
– Several control options, including “2x direct touch”

So engage and destroy… and to those of you who remember: “Welcome to Battle Squadron !!”
