Strikefleet Omega is a defense game for the iPhone – not a tower defense, but a “ship defense” so to speak, as you defend your command ship against a seemingly endless swarm of alien ships. You do this using a bunch of backup ships such as starfighter carriers as well as sending out squadrons of starfighters to fight back against the aliens. You collect crystals in this game as well, using your miners and your miner carriers. Much like some of the Air Traffic Controller games that are around on the iPhone, you control starfighters and miners by swiping the path that you want them to follow. Read on for some tips and tricks for Strikefleet Omega!
Your goal is to get a three star score for each stage, and one of the ways to rack up a ton of points at the end of the level is by using crystals to do so. Once you unlock your Alaska Class Mining Ops Carrier, the first thing you do should be to send one of those in and have the miners mine the nearest available rock. As you build up your crystals send in a Starfighter Carrier, then Mining Ops Carrier to triple the mining power, then finally another Starfighter Carrier, and so on and so forth. The best case scenario is to have the maximum amount of leftover crystals at the end of the stage, yet to still be able to easily defeat the enemy fighters and bombers.
When picking the power-ups at the beginning of the stage, also, pick the one the speeds up the miners, or the one that makes your fighters more powerful. Ignore the one that doubles your experience points, because you can get experience points on any stage, even if you have already played and beaten the stages before.
Of course, on stages with bombers, it might also be a good idea to go for the power up that restores the command ship’s energy gradually.
