Syz E.G. is a unique and innovative galactic adventure game built for the iPad. The player takes the role of Captain Russel Porter in the fight against the evil Fringe Republic. As the captain of the Syzygy, the player will have to utilize the weapons and abilities of his six unique crew members in order to defeat the enemies and succeed in his mission. The game utilizes different perspectives to provide distinct gameplay experiences: top down will present the player with a broader, more tactical view of the battle, whereas side view will provide a faster-paced in-your-face traditional space-shooter feel. These mechanics we hope will bring the player an exciting new experience within the space-shooter genre.
