I don’t think I’ll need to explain too much how this game works, right?
If you already liked the PC version of this game, let me tell you, you won’t be disappointed at this one.
I was afraid the controls would ruin it all, but I was happy to discover that there was nothing to fear. The controls are highly customizable, and I seemed to get along pretty well with the default ones.
When you’re out of a vehicle, the left side will be your pad to move around. The pad is not fixed, so you don’t have to look at it every time. If you lift your finger from the screen, the pad will disappear, and when you touch the screen again, it will appear wherever your finger is. This is a very successful trick that has been being used on some iOS games, and here is no different. Works like a charm!
On the right side, you will have the jump, run, shoot, “get in the car” and camera angle buttons.
To rotate the camera, just drag your finger anywhere in the screen. Great success!
When inside a vehicle, the controls change (as they should).
The pad on the left side turns into left and right arrows, allowing you to turn. At the right side, you will have the brakes, accelerator, the hand brake (to pull off those turns everybody loves), the shooting button, the “get out of the vehicle” button, the horn and the camera angle setting.
Depending on the vehicle and on what you’re doing, some buttons may be added (taxi, ambulance, cop missions, jumping stunts, firing options, etc)
The game plays pretty much as the classic does, with all the missions, the unlockable content and one of my favorites aspects of this game ever: the radio!
I am a long time fan of the GTA radio stations, and I was thrilled to find out that they were included in the iOS version.
This game is really looking awesome and it’s Universal, so yay for iPhones and iPads!
I really enjoyed playing this on my desktop PC, so being able to play it on the bus, train, boring party and doctor’s waiting room brings a whole new level to it.
This title is on sale, and you can take it for $0.99
First of all, let’s set the mood:
That’s right, we’re talking cowboys now.
Six-Guns by Gameloft is an amazing “I-can’t-believe-it’s-free” game.
Gameloft did it this time. In a mega huge world of cowboys, thieves, snakes and monsters (yup, monsters too), you will be allowed to make a name for yourself shooting, racing, foraging herbs, and completing many other missions.
In this game, you are your own boss. You may choose to do missions, or just explore the world, find treasure chests, collect money and buy new shiny stuff.
Of course, due to the nature of the game, most times you’ll be asked to shoot and be shot at. Those were the days alright.
The user interface is simple enough, but there is room for improvement. The finger you use to aim is the same you must use to shoot, and that doesn’t make things any easier. But again, totally manageable. If Clint Eastwood was capable of it, so are you. You just need to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk? (it was stronger than me, even tho this quote isn’t from a western movie).
The horse races are awesome and the graphics of the game are astonishing.
For each mission you complete, you get money that can be used to buy weapons, clothing, upgrades, horses, and monster specific stuff.
This is really a game that is too good to be free, but I guess that’s why they call it freemium. With a little bit of real money, you can buy the best weapons and upgrades, so I guess they still get their income (maybe more than if the game was paid and all weapons free).
Six-Guns is free and universal (we do love universal games, don’t we?).
Get it, install it, love it, and thank me later.
Check the video below if you’re having second thoughts.
If one day the zombies rise, I’d rather be on an airplane. If you give me a long-range gun, even better. Now, throw me on a gunship and you’ll make little AppFreaky a happy lemming.
You’re flying with big guns. Below, hordes of mindless-glazed-eye-starving-for-brains zombies try to get to a bunker with humans inside.
What? Not on your watch, right?
Deliver some hell and start saying everyone to call you “Death From Above” or some other cool name.
From the clouds, start shelling those dead people until they’re… hum.. deader? Well, until they’re dust.
Collect cash from kills and upgrade your weapons, increasing the mayhem factor.
Whatever you do, just don’t let them get to the bunker, or your friends will be zombie snack.
Zombie Gunship is universal and currently free for a limited time.
Forget the fancy long name in the title and focus: Rainbow Six. That’s the bit want want to hold on to.
I sure hope you did play this game a long time ago, in your 256MB RAM computer.
When I read about this game coming out for iOS devices, it raised me an eyebrow. Could they do it with the same quality and excitement of the PC title?
Then, finally, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard HD by Gameloft came out and curiosity got the best of me.
I bought it (I don’t believe we’ll ever have an option here) and tested it.
And I saw it was good.
I was never very good at FPS (First Person Shooter) games in iOS devices, I always miss the mouse, but this was not the case, because
a) The game helps you on aiming
b) You can play the whole game in stealth mode
The “b” option is the one I truly enjoy about all Rainbow Six series. You get to sneak up on the bad guys and kill them without too many bullets being fired.
Also, as you are the captain of a 4 higly trained team, you can order them to do your dirty work. Just assign targets, tell them to go in (you may tell them to throw a flashbang granade before) and watch as they double tap each enemy in the very same order you told them to. Gotta love your minions.
Graphically, the game is awesome all the scenarios are greatly detailed and you can hide for cover in almost everything, such as walls, cars, barrels, columns, boxes, etc.
Even closed doors are not an obstacle for you. Just use the little optic wormy thingy to see who/what is behind the door. You may also assign targets for your team before the door is open.
You create your own style of game. You can lead the way and let your team cover your back (this means you’ll have to shoot the enemies ahead) or you can have their back and just order them to invade and create chaos around.
If you still have doubts, let me help you decide. Check the video below.
Right now it is priced at $6.99, but gameloft is known to lower their prices for a day, every now and then. Anyway, it is worth the 7 bucks, if you ask me.
