Defendy Rocket is a challenging, rewarding and fast-paced mobile arcade game in which you launch rockets to intercept enemies. Create paths for your rockets using speed and precision to chain together combos and earn points to purchase upgrades and cosmetic items. Unlock new game modes and survive for as long as you can, then compete with your friends on the leaderboards!
Defendy Rocket started life before TriCat itself even existed, with Phil working on it in his spare time. Once TriCat was formed, development on Defendy Rocket started full-time, and the various mechanics of the game were explored and expanded upon. The game's visuals and audio, basically non-existent before, sprang up in the first couple of weeks. The basic gameplay loop took shape at the same time, but it wasn't until Stars were added that Defendy Rocket started to feel like a real game, adding both a scoring system and an extra tactical layer. Most of the remaining development time was spent designing and balancing the various difficulty modes, and adding a swathe of customisation options.
