Players are given a vocal warning when things are about to get intense. You have to be ready for just about anything. There are over 30 randomized levels in Trixel Rocket. So, you’re given a different type of challenge every time you play. And the only goal in this one finger game is to survive.

You can also increase your odds and shift things in your favor, with upgrades. Throughout the game, the crystal gems that you collect can be used to unlock some very cool items. There are a dozen stylish ships and special shields for additional protection that you can get. The game also has in-app purchases in the form of gem bundles and shield packages.
