Swarm follows in the Asteroids tradition where the player must pilot a lone ship and destroy a bunch of derelict space debris as well as hostile space-faring creatures while collecting items. This game revolves around a character named Saul who narrates the opening of each level, describing a little more of what he is doing and how he got himself into the present situation. The craft he pilots is called a T-77 which is agile, speedy, and armed with twin cannons. Throughout the levels, the player can collect upgraded cannons and a variety of explosive devices and other weapons with which to dispatch enemies and help with mining EZT, the prized material in this game. Swarm boasts 4 difficulty settings and 100 playable levels.
