Game Modes

Saviors features 3 different game modes with very different features in each one of them. Story mode lets you follow the story and save your game after each level. You can also upgrade your ship with new weapons and “perks” which provide your ship with several fun additions and features. Survival mode has no upgrades or story and is more focused on getting a high score and trying to complete the game at one go. Arcade mode is the “old school” or “hardcore” mode where your ship has “lives” instead of a shield and isn’t upgradeable. Arcade mode also has a more complex scoring system.

The Story

Humans have built colonies outside the solar system and the wars that once ravaged the earth have almost ended. Traveling between different planet systems is done through warp gates. Humans established contact with an alien race over 10 years ago and have now managed to meet them through these warp gates. The aliens’ technology is advanced far beyond the capabilities of humans but so far the relationships between the two species have been peaceful. However, one suspicious billionaire does not trust the alien race and has begun building his own secret technology to prepare for a possible conflict. One day, his worst fears become reality…
