CellZenith gameplay is based on intense battles between CELs, futuristic advanced combat craft. Expect to experience heated, close-up engagements where survival will seem like a distant dream . You lead a team of 35 unique CEL units along with your captain in a larger more powerful Carrier CEL (which can be boarded and piloted). Strategically picking your units before each battle will give you a tactical advantage over the enemy. CellZenith' vast levels will include objective tasks all while engaging an onslaught of fierce enemies. CELs come in two varieties: flying and ground based. The Carrier is crucial for getting ground based CELs over gaps. Every CEL has the ability to move in any direction while simultaneously shooting in another. Your CEL also has the ability to seamlessly change to a circle strafing mode, giving you a greater advantage while in combat.

“We’ve been performing external testing of CellZenith and have been hearing promising feedback.” explained Eric Totten, Quality Assurance Specialist at Faramix, “CellZenith is being called the next ‘Geometry Wars’ and is anticipated to be the next hit downloadable title.”

When a CEL is destroyed, a number of special upgrades called “phyta crystals” are generated. Nearby CELs can collect these to gain shields, health, firepower, and other temporary abilities – 15 in total. They can be used to obtain one of 19 unique secondary weapons as well. When enough white phyta crystals are collected, upgraded versions of the CEL are attainable that will give you a tactical advantage and new permanent upgrades. Be careful, your enemies can collect phyta crystals as well.

CellZenith features a campaign mode where you will engage in 30 different story-driven levels to seek out and defeat the unknown force and escape back to Earth. Also included are 14 Instant action maps and four highly addictive minigames [Cel Attack, Tournament, Ball Escape, Black Hole].
