Description

N.O.V.A. (Near Orbital Vanguard Alliance) is a first person shooter in a Sci-Fi universe where mankind had to construct huge satellites for people to live on as the earth was no longer able to sustain life. The game's style and scenario reminds of the Halo games.

The player takes control of the actions of Kal Wardin who has to stop an alien invasion threatening the very existence of mankind's new home. The game uses a horizontal orientation where the left thumb controls the players movement and the right thumb controls the weapons.

The single player campaign offers 13 levels at various settings such as jungle, snow, spaceship, bunker and an alien city. The multiplayer part offers 5 maps with up to 4 players over Wi-Fi or 2 players over Bluetooth.While most of the gameplay offers standard 1st person shooting material, there are some mini games involved in the game as well.
