The game is a nice idea, having to defend your phone, and the weapons are all icon symbols which makes it a bit more ‘iPhoney”, I’m just not sure why the game didn’t grab me.
This game has some great ideas in it.
It takes the iPhone icons and uses that as the weapons to defend the phone. There are six different weapons and each of these have six possible upgrades. You also have 140 levels to get through on different difficulty settings so there is a good variety of game play. It was a nice touch that when you pause the game it reminds you about inventory etc, so you know what all the icons mean. Also, the idea of having to defend your phone is great.
To play the game you have a crosshair that you aim in the direction of the enemies, and it fires into them. You can just keep moving this around or if you place it near the phone it pretty much shoots the enemies anyway. You have round by round games and between each one you have the option of upgrading weapons. You can then change the weapons you are using or add the purchased upgrade.
I can’t quite place my finger on why the app didn’t grab me and make me want to play more. It has all the makings of a good app, enemies, weapons, fast shooting, bosses… and yet I just didn’t find myself wanting to play. I think I found it all quite awkward to play. Maybe that plus the in-game graphics weren’t as slick as what I am used to paying for in a $2.99 app.
I think this one will have to be on personal preferences, for me I just didn’t engage with it the way I wanted to.
