Radiant: Exclusive Android game demo

Hexage is quickly becoming one of our favorite Android game developers because they always deliver the goods. Their first two games (Buka and Totemo) are some of the most polished titles available for the Android platform. Not only do they produce quality games, but they also provide great support. Hexage continues to update their games after they are released to add new gameplay features and extend the replay value.

For their third game, Hexage decided to go retro.

Radiant is an old school shooter that plays tribute to classics like Space Invaders and Asteroids. The controls are ultra simple and the game is all about action. Hexage plans to release the game next Thursday October, 1 2009, but they gave us an exclusive demo to share with our readers.

Download Radiant Lite

Click the link above to download the apk file. You can grab it on your PC and copy it to your SD card or download it directly to your phone. If you need a file manager to install the apk file, we suggest Linda File Manager. If you have any issues downloading the apk file, grab Linda File Manager first and it will get the file correctly.

Radiant (along with Totemo) is entered in the second Android Developers challenge. Get the ADC2 judging application and be on the look out.

    Pretty awesome game. When I first saw it I thought ‘Great, another Space Invaders clone.’ But somehow its much more than that. Great game for killing some time while waiting on someone or in line.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      I like how challenging the game is. I’ve been playing about a week and I finally finished the single player campaign in the full game. I hope they add some more levels or increase the difficulty level even further.

    Download seems to be broken for me. .apk installer keeps telling me it can’t parse.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      Doh, I forget the default Android build doesn’t always let you download apk files.

      If you have an app like Linda File Manager isntalled, it will recognize the apk file and download it no problem.

      I will update the article.

    Maybe a QR code for those of us reading this on the PC? :)

      D’oh I knew I left something off. It has been a hectic day.

  • Bart

    I didn’t like it. I expected more from Hexage.

  • Lior

    The ship movement is too slow causing the game to feel boring… come on! more action!

  • Jeroen

    I really liked it. Movement of the ship is a bit too slow yes. But the way you sort of have to counter “steer” gives the controls a nice edge. And the graphics are a great example of how simple can be beautiful. A game I will end up buying I think.

    • jayson

      From playing the game, it looks like you can upgrade the movement speed. I thought it was sucky at first, but after the first upgrade, I could actually tell a difference.
