The ErnCon: Multiplayer Combat app by Woo Games is a simplistic shooter game that gets you fighting to retake the galaxy in an epic battle.
You have to show everyone you’re the best pilot to get things done as you fight with up to eight other players online. You get to use a bunch of different robots, all with different abilities, and several fighters. You can use attack drones, homing missiles, rail guns, seeking mines, and more to kill your enemies.
You can choose from among more than 20 different weapons, 12 “elite” fighters, and robots. All you have to do to get started is choose your mission and start playing. There are five multiplayer missions available to you in the beginning; as you play, you’ll earn cash that you will use to unlock and buy new robots, weapons, and fighters. You’ll also earn XP, which you will use to unlock new multiplayer missions. There are also in-app purchases that allow you to buy ErnCoins.
If you add friends you can send them boosts and receive boosts in return; boosts help in combat.
The greatest part is that you can play with anyone anywhere in the world who has Internet access. You’ll earn Game Center achievements, and show off on the leaderboards.
You can also play in one-player Survival Mode.
