A free-as-in-beer android game, Battle Moon: 2075 (http://www.facebook.com/BattleMoon2075) is targeting devices 2.2 and greater. So, you can play it even if you're sporting the original Droid. Paralarc has described the game as an "arcade shooter," competing with several top names, playable on the most popular android phones. The game is scheduled for release in May 2013, with beta release and testing in April.
Paralarc promotes the idea that "money shouldn't keep a player from having a great game experience." But for those who have cash laying around, the game makes a offers "the ability to achieve any buyable items." Players who wish to purchase their way through levels and gain power-ups will still be able to do so, but any content available for purchase can also be earned by aspiring Battle Moon commanders. How difficult it will be to earn these rewards remains to be seen.
Will Battle Moon: 2075 Compete with other Android Game Apps?
Many game companies offer fun games for free. So, although Battle Moon: 2075 is a different kind of arcade shooter, featuring AI planet "bosses", the model itself is nothing new. Paralarc has expressed an interest in "promoting the game play experience through varying levels of difficulty and thorough graphical development." Whether this monetization model is successful for an arcade shooter remains to be seen. After all, multiplayer functionality will be released after the beta, and many free android apps spend months in developemnt.
A Promotions Battle
Besides competition, Paralarc faces many challenges, including Google Play's 30% fees, and typical start-up costs. Paralarc plans to get the ball rolling with a kickstarter project beginning on March 15. Yes, the ides of March.
