Heavy Gunner 3D - Matrix-style defence gunning for the App Store?
TMA Heavy Gunner 3D Press Release
Heavy Gunner 3D is out and serving up 3D action for alien-blasting fans. The action takes place in a cockpit behind dual turrets. Com2uS paid special attention to making killing alien scum fun and intuitive, so apart from pretty nice graphics, Heavy Gunner has a lot of great upgrades and a pretty solid control scheme to recommend it other than its dubbing as ‘Matrix Revolution gunning’ for the iDevice. TouchMyApps will be looking at it later this week, so keep your eyes peeled for our trigger-friendly review.
Lock, loaded and ready to shoot down some alien scum?App Description
The first game from Com2uS’ 2010 lineup is a graphically stunning, intergalactic shooter game called Heavy Gunner 3D. The game places you in a futuristic time where alien weapon technology is as commonplace as water guns. As alien invaders rain down from above, you man a turret armed to the bone with gatling guns, EMPs, missiles and a boat load of weaponry.
Full 360 panoramic view with an array of 3D-modeled enemy spacecrafts.
Eight different types of weapons with over 130 possible upgrade combinations allow you to transform your simple turret into a full blown death star taking down alien invaders from all over the galaxy. The controls are simple to learn but require a special ‘touch’ to master. Simply pressing down on the dual v-pads allows you to shoot a gun on both sides, but with each circular shooting pad, you are allowed to control the aim of each gun individually.
A cartridge full of playtime with a load of features
Heavy Gunner 3D gives you a bang for your buck with endless playtime, loaded with 35 missions, a survival mode, and 50 achievements. Similar to many dual-stick shooters, the enemies come at you in swarms like flies at an outdoor barbeque. However, unlike most dual stick shooters, Heavy Gunner 3D places the camera in first person view. The game increases re-playability with 3 options of difficulty levels. The easy level may give you the feeling of an untouchable turret, but don’t be fooled because the harder levels make it more and more difficult to hold your ground.
Com2uS has also been holding beta tests for two other games that are currently in the works. Caligo Chaser, a slash and dash action-arcade game with customizable clothes and attack skills. IMO: World of Magic, is a fully-featured MMORPG contained within a massive virtual world. All three Com2uS games have been highly anticipated by the iPhone community.

TMA will be reviewing Heavy Gunner 3D soon, and TMA cannot wait to get started - it looks awesome. Blazes, explosions, and oodles of action. What do you think? 2.99$ doesn't seem too bad for such a nice-looking title, but that has yet to be seen. Anyone with experience with Heavy Gunner 3D?
