Surely, there are plenty of ‘premium’ App Store titles where gamers are hoping and praying to see price drops for; Rolando 2, Real Racing and Sim 3 are some prime examples of games priced at the current ceiling of $9.99. While we won’t know for sure when (if ever) these titles go on sale, two of the biggest video game franchises available for the iDevice – Metal Gear Solid Touch ($7.99) and Doom Resurrection ($9.99) – are now available for only $2.99 a pop. While both of these games offer a different gameplay experience compared to their console/PC counterparts (MGST being more of a sniper/shooting game and Doom Resurrection an “on-rail” shooter), they are both still loads of fun and will keep you entertained while on the go. If you have six bucks to burn before the weekend officially begins and are craving for some action packed shooters, you definitely don’t want to miss out on these deals. Grab ‘em while its hot!
Update: id Software’s other FPS Wolfenstein 3D Classic is now on sale as well at only $0.99!!
As expected, the highly anticipated Doom Resurrection has been released today at the App Store. Unlike id Software’s first iDevice title Wolfenstein 3D Classic, Doom Resurrection is a brand new Doom experience designed from the ground up for the i-Platform.
Scientists on a remote research facility on Mars have lost control of their experiment and all Hell has broken loose. As the last surviving Marine in your unit, you must defeat Hell’s minions and unravel the mystery of what has happened on Mars. Earth’s future depends on you!
Courage alone will not be enough to stand up to the evil that awaits you. Utilize a devastating arsenal of weapons, helpful NPC’s and your environment to succeed. With an assault rifle, shotgun, a vicious chainsaw, and more, you will even the odds in a raging battle against unnatural beasts hell-bent on flaying your flesh and damning your soul.
While Resurrection is by all account an FPS, id Software elected for an “on-rail” shooter as opposed to giving players freedom of movement in any given level. With the scripted path that players must take, the heart of the action lies in the shooting aspect of the game, which is controlled via the accelerometer. With stunning visuals, graphical assets from Doom 3, 8 all new levels, 5 hours of gameplay and an impressive 30 frames per second of sweet onscreen mayhem, FPS fans will not want to miss out on this very promising and latest installment of Doom.
