A high-quality shooter with elements that mimics shooters from the 90s-era, HotField sure does bring back a lot of memories when compared against shooters from the arcade or home consoles. It is highly replayable, especially the boss mode difficulty levels, which skips all the unneccessary grunt-level enemy crafts and tasks you straight into saving the world from evil once again.
Perhaps the next delightfully retro gaming genre set to invade the iPhone is the classic SHMUP, or 2D shoot-em-up for the unitiated. This is evidenced by the recent release of Sky Force Reloaded and now Hotfield from C2Matrix. There have certainly been prior entries such as rRootage, Space Deadbeef, Sentry Alpha and Sky Thunder but IMO none have offered the complete experience of the early 90’s arcade shooters…until now.
Hotfield is an arcade 2D shooter for the iPhone and iPod Touch. We've all played one of these game and Hotfield is looking to bring the genre to the iphone. This is the kind of game where you fly around shooting enemies and gaining powerups until you get to the final boss that shoots crazy patterns and takes a day just to take down. That sums up Hotfield.

The ship can fly freely in 8 directions using your d-pad, joystick, stylus, or mouse. If you have the access to a stylus or mouse, use it! Its much easier to dodge bullets and pick up power-ups with smoother control.
Except for moving your ship, you can also use stylus/mouse to enter "Bullet Time" state: double click the ship & keep the stylus/mouse touch on the screen. (the same as hold key 'A')
The Action Keys
Your ship can do alot, so you're going to have to remember what each key does:
A: Pressing the A key allows your ship to enter "Bullet Time" state. ( Enemies and their bullets will slow down )
B: This will give you access to the in game menu which contains sound levels, main menu, and direct access to exit the game.
C: Unleashes a powerful laser attack. the longer you hold, the stronger the laser will get.
Your ship are able to power up throughout the game by catching floating power-up icons.
Get close to bullets will enhance your fire power.
Get close to 2 more bullets will increase your laser gauge.
Shooting a wave of enemies is simple. Some enemies will drop "star points" which will add even more to your total score. Get enough of these star points, and you just might be awarded an extra life.
