In 1984 Data East released what was the most cinematic and immersive gaming experience the world had ever seen, an arcade machine called Cobra Command that featured movie-like visuals and surround sound that were years ahead of their time, to put you in the pilots seat of a futuristic attack helicopter.
Now 25 years on Revolutionary Concepts and licensor G-mode bring that same game in all it’s glory to the iPhone and iPod Touch!
Better yet, the addition of touch screen controls, tilt steering, enhanced h.264 widescreen video, vastly improved graphics, unlockable awards and online scoring, makes for a game unlike anything you’ve likely ever experienced.
Incredibly this is only possible on the iPhone and iPod Touch and not todays most powerful gaming consoles.

Cobra Command for iPhone & iPod Touch.
The world is under attack and you are in command of the most awesome combat machine ever designed! Armed with sophisticated weaponry your ultra modern Cobra Attack Chopper will take you through 10 dangerous missions ranging from New York, to the Pacific Ocean, the Middle East, and everything in between.
In your quest you will find you are engaged in combat with a seemingly never-ending stream of enemy combatants, who will throw everything they have at you including helicopters, jets, bombers, tanks, ships, gun emplacements and rocket launchers, with more than a few surprises along the way.
While you view the action from the relative comfort of your cockpit, you engage each of these enemies on a kill or be killed basis. ☠
Get ready for the ride of your life!
Not for the faint hearted, Cobra Command will redefine your idea of what is possible on the iPhone. But remember, saving the world wasn’t meant to be easy, and only the best will survive 😉
Note: In the screens below we feel it important to point out that what you are seeing are actual in-game captures of real full motion animated action. These aren’t static backdrops.
