Interloper

Mathew Purchase
*The* space flight combat simulator, designed for iOS, developed by Anchorite.

FLY like you've never flown before on iPhone and iPad with a full six degrees of freedom. Play it your way in either portrait or landscape.

TAKE HOLD with full support for MFi controllers or get up close and personal to be immersed with intense haptics and on-screen controls.

DEFEND your people against the oppressive COMMONWEALTH. ENGAGE in a selection of fast-paced missions and beautiful environments.

IGNORE THE ODDS and go toe to toe with swarms of fighters, frigates armed to the teeth or hulking capital ships. DON'T GO IN ALONE, bring your own elite fighter squadrons.

CUSTOMISE your fighter with an array of load-out options. BALANCE your choice of weapons, utilities and wingmen. Experiment with new equipment or get comfortable with favourites.

BUILD UP your arsenal with salvage from each successful run. EQUIP potent salvaged items to take on the heavily armed COMMONWEALTH fleets.

KEEP YOUR COOL and you'll make it out alive. Getting wiped out means giving up on your current gear and loot. BAIL OUT early if things are looking tough and live to fight another day.

What's new in version 1.07
Here it is, the post-launch tutorial revamp I've been promising for a whole two weeks!

First up there's the new and improved tutorial experience, I've updated the tutorial flow with clearer graphics and more time for the user to figure out the game. Theres also a controller specific tutorial flow with some minor amends to make it more useful and easier to get through. The tutorial has been mostly rewritten, with less, but more clear wording. And I've had a bunch of people verify that there are zero tutorial bugs or blockers at this point in time.

There's also been lots of balance updates and fixes. The big one being tying control sensitivity to enemy projectile speed, as it turns out, people playing on anything less than max sensitivity were at a significant disadvantage and now this is no longer the case. This should add up to player deaths being more of an "Oh no" moment and less of a "what just happened" moment.

Finally, there's a bunch of UI Changes to Post-run flow. When you die, the game now tells you loud and clear, it has a list of all the items you've lost or conversely when you survive, a list of all the items you've gained. The Swipe to loot card has also been updated with pressable buttons.
