Android Assault Released!

The Earth's fate was nearly sealed when a race of cybernetic organisms first appeared from the sky in the year 2067. It was soon obvious that they came only for conquest. After nuking most of the planet's major metropolitan cities, the human race was rounded up into squalid settlements so that they could be contained and studied. Completely subjugated, there is no chance for rebellion, only revenge.

To adjust the aim, touch and drag the tip of the arrow so that it points in the desired direction. The longer the arrow, the further your shot will go. You might find it helpful to fine tune the angle of your shot by touching the buttons on either side of the 'Angle' display. This can also be done by moving left and right using the trackball/d-pad. To fine tune the power, simply touch the buttons on either side of the 'Power' display, or by moving up and down using the trackball/dpad.
