NOVA - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance

Released in december of 2009 NOVA offered a complete first person gaming experience on your phone. At first glance you could easily mistake NOVA with Halo, but then again, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The game controls using a virtual joystick to move, and by swiping across the screen to look around. Other control options are available, but the default works best for most people.

The simplistic graphics are colorful, and good texture work help alleviate the chunky models.
Thanks to the simple graphics the game runs very smoothly and rarely slows down.

NOVA offers a great halo-esque shooter experience. While compared to similar console shooters of it may appear lacking, it still has a solid base and for a mobile gaming experience it's great fun.
