About

Warp into action with Solar Shifter EX. Man your ship and dive into fierce combat situations in space and over beautiful and distant planet surfaces. Solar Shifter EX is a sci-fi shoot 'em up with the unique ability to 'shift'.
Your only weapon is your ship: The Phase Shifter has been outfitted with a one-of-a-kind jump drive that lets you warp out of tough situations at will, a technique which will challenge you of to your limits when surviving the masses of enemies coming at you from all sides in this true bullet hell.

In good old shmup fashion you will face uncountable formations of enemies that'll try to stop you. Be clever and use the Phase Shifter's jump drive to your advantage or you will get shot.

STORY
Shortly after mankind left the solar system to colonize new worlds, we had to face a powerful alien race. The war has passed, the losses were devastating and the enemy has defeated us. As the final strike, they are about to destroy the sun that gives life to the system that we now call home.
Chaos erupted, and pirate raiders are scavenging fellow human colonies on the outer rim. Their only goal is to collect enough resources to be able to leave the solar system.

FEATURES
• Unique 'shifting' mechanic to bring a completely new level of depth into a shmup
• 18 tough missions
• 8 beautiful environments
• Over 40 enemy types encountered throughout the game
• Upgrade your ship
• 4 controllable ships: One main ship and three alien ships. Control all-powerful alien vessels that decimate allied forces with ease.

Solar Shifter EX reviews and comments

Product received for free Dirt!!! Too heavy! Too stupid! Too linear! DO NOT KUY: Prefer to Play Jets N Guns!!!! This is much better and Rockt! Got some Levels behind me. Since you die by 1-5 Hits yourself and the Screen is full of Enemies, you die within Seconds of level start. Checkpoints are far too rare and it fruits when you have to repeat Minutes of Agony. Again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again ... Until you know by heart when which enemies are coming from and when to float where to avoid being hit. This has nothing to do with a Shoot em up, this is simply bad Game design. That the Graphics are handsome doesn't make it any better. The Sound is ok. DO NOT KUY: Prefer to Play Jets N Guns!!!! This is much better and Rockt!

With Solar Shifter Ex, Headup Games brings a bullet light shoot ' em-up with new, charming Style Back Sci-Fi scenarios back to the PCs! The Future of a Galaxy hangs by a thread, because it is exploited by an alien race and is on the Verge of destruction. In Solar Shifter Ex, you embark on an explosive Journey, across the Room and visit planets, and take on Giant Alien Fleets everywhere. https://youtu.be/-MFOsHMnSIs Story The Galaxy in which you are located is attacked and exploited by an alien race. This Breed harbors the sinister plan to claim this Galaxy for its Necessities. As a Pilot, you try to escape from this Fate and, on your Journey through Space, you will meet people who will help you overcome Doom. The intergalactic Enemies are fought not only in Space, but also in the Troposphere of Planets. Game Principle In Solar Shifter Ex, the old, classic bullet light shoot ' Em-up principle has been retained. But the 3D Atmosphere has more to offer, like the flat Predecessors. Including fluid Change of Perspective, through the almost permanently moving Camera. This does not make it easy to Dodge objects and Projectiles and is a great Challenge that is best encountered with a long thread Of Patience. But Solar Shifter EX Would not have its Name for nothing if it did not exist if the unique Possibility of Shipping did not exist. This allows the Maneuver Points to be changed quickly and once less the Sheet box is pulverized. In addition, even after each Level, you can upgrade your Weapons in the Hangar, through collected credits obtained by destroying Enemies. That makes for a little more Opportunity Equalization.
