Pew Pew Planet, goGame's latest casual arcade shooter, is now available globally for both iOS and Android. It will see players control a fleet of ships called Guardian spacecraft where they will then be tasked with gunning down enemies simply known as Minions – and no, not those ones.

It's incredibly simple in concept, as most of these casual games are intended to be. Each level will see several Minions constantly rotating around the edge of a planet and you'll have to shoot a certain amount of them. The game will swap to slow motion as you attempt to hit the last Minion to try and increase the tension a bit.

However, you're not allowed to accidentally shoot anything else. If you hit the planet or a bomb that might be stealthily hidden amongst the throng of aliens floating around the planet, then it will be game over and you'll have to start again from zero points – or watch an ad to continue.

Beyond that, there are also power-ups that you can get that change the type of bullet you firing for several shots. This might be a boomerang that bounces around the planet taking out multiple enemies at once or a laser beam that quickly lay waste to the minions. There's also a rapid-fire mode you can activate by charging up your Pew Pew Bar.

You'll also collect something called Allstars the more you play the game which can be used to unlock new Guardians. Beyond that, the only thing to work towards is a better score on the leader board. It's a game that's designed to be played in short bursts, after all, so there's not going to be a huge amount of depth here.

Pew Pew Planet is available now on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
