It seems more and more developers are finally starting to realize they are not limited to using a virtual joystick for shooter games. Just recently I reviewed Heavy Mach 2 – a top-down shooter using touch-placed waypoints for controlling the movement and attacks. And now another shooter has fully utilized the unique multi-touch capabilities of the iPhone in their latest creation 2360: Battle for Cydonia – an interesting and quite original top-down shooter.
Get ready for finger fire in Brisk Mobile’s new game: 2360: Battle for Cydonia. Yep, the badboys who brought us Fluffy Farm and Medieval are preparing to lower the temperature of iPhone gaming to cold steel. Battle for Cydonia is a touch-based shooter with a mix of tap-and-drag and line drawing control elements for frantic fire fighting. There will also be loads of missions and customisations/upgrades for the heavy mecha at players’ disposal. While our spies can reveal little else, we do know that it should hit App Store shelves later this month or early next. Oh yes, and that it looks hella’ fun.
Till then, enjoy the video and do as I do: salivate.
