Atlantis Sky Patrol ships
Big Fish Studios has released Atlantis Sky Patrol for the Macintosh, a highly addictive sequel to last year's Atlantis; it features clever new mechanics and stunning art deco visuals. Atlantis Sky Patrol is an arcade-styled casual game in which players must take to the skies and travel all over the world to disable more than 100 doomsday devices, presumed to have originated in Atlantis. The devices are disabled by solving stationary puzzles and stopping waves of moving defense mechanisms from coming out. The game offers a variety of devices, including bumpers, railway switches and more. A minigame periodically allows the player to collect coins and help buy permanent upgrades for the ship. Two players modes are also available, both as a cooperative adventure, and as specially designed competition levels. The game showcases stunning full-screen OpenGL graphics as well as the studio soundtrack. Atlantis Sky Patrol is available for $20.
