About

“You are the admiral of the last great space fleet; marshal your crews and assign your orders, then sit back and watch cinematic battles in 3D.”

Strike vector is a game about successfully managing your junior officers to succeed in epic space battles.

I derived the setting for strike vector from my comic 'Isolation' that I am writing as part of my A level Art course. Unlike most games there is no real good side; the player is caught up in events and all they can do is their best to ensure as many of their comrades survive as possible. I would be interested in introducing a multiplayer element to give this idea more worth. There will be relatively few levels, so a player could be expected to complete the story mode of the game in about the same time it would take to watch a film. 

My original plan was to design a game that utilised IPhone VR in a unique way. To play strike vector you select a few simple options then put on your IPhone VR and watch the battle unfold like you might watch a scene from a film. Afterwards you can tinker with more options if you lost and refight the battle, otherwise you will see a short 'cut scene' in the form of an illustration with a block of speech.

Controls

The basic control mechanics rely on the IPhone touchscreen. You swipe to scroll down lists and tap to select options. A ‘done’ button is present for each list to proceed to the next set of options or to battle.
