Giant Fighting Robots

With the realistic physics in this combat sim, we can safely say that we really DO have WEAPONS OF MATH DESTRUCTION.
From the creators of X-Plane comes a really FUN new combat sim that really turns the iPhone and iPod touch into a mini game-station of pretty significant power... THIS is the virtual-reality combat sim that many of you have been waiting for.
Much like X-Plane, Giant Fighting Robots is fairly complex, with pretty accurate physics... but being in a Giant Fighting Robot with Guided Machine Guns, Lightning-Guns, Gatling Lasers, and a dozen or so other weapons, trying to defend yourselves against artificially-intelligent, heavily-armed alien fighter and bomber spider-bots on a dozen foreign worlds... well, the action gets quite a bit more intense.
You will start off in the Genesis-Class ATAW (All Terrain Attack Walker), which is nothing more than a modified cargo-walker with a few modified aircraft air-to-ground guns mounted on the top. It is a pretty silly defense against the alien attack, but it is all humanity can throw together on short notice. As you defeat the alien invaders at progressively harder levels, the Human Cascade will have time to develop increasingly powerful ATAWs and weapon systems, making each of your future combat engagements more complex and violent as you move into faster moving ATAWs like the Huron, or heavier ones like the Galaxy or Titanic, and move into command of really frightening weapons systems like the Flame-Thrower, High-Capacitance Laser, Ion Cannon, or Guided Torpedo. We believe this is the most immersive, intense combat simulation for the iPhone... can you handle it? Can you WIN it? We can.. but it isn't easy!
Also, as well as fighting against the artificially-intelligent aliens, you can play in multi-player death-matches against your friends, choosing your ATAW weapons, reactors, batteries, armor, engines, and jet-durations to maximize the lethality of your attack... and here is where the fun just gets so amazing it is about impossible to put your phone (or iPodTouch) down!
A few people are not quite sure how to equip their ATAWs... remember that your BATTERIES drive your weapons and propulsion systems, and the REACTORS keep the batteries charged during combat... Do you want to have a lot of power for a QUICK attack (large batteries) or sustainable power for a longer attack? (large reactor)... Choose your batteries and reactors accordingly!
What's New in Version 9.551
Total code re-build to run on all operating systems up to and including 4.0!
This enables running in the background if you want to run multiple apps at once!
Storms! Sometimes you will get dropped into combat in the middle of thunderstorms, with lightning, which is pretty cool.
We now have faster gameplay as well, which is pretty cool.
Oh No! There Goes Tokyo!!!
Very impressive indeed. I love the sim feel with static transmission. Reminds me of the Godzilla movies of old with it's vibe.
Would like to see a start menu each time you fire up the game. Once you start a campaign it loads from the briefing point. I want the option to see the cool "Live Battle Feed" each time you open the app. Makes the best screensaver ever! I can get it to start if I hard boot my phone, but would like the app to start there. Minor gripe to an otherwise great piece of software.
Awesome app laminar
This app is just awesome! Even after you complete the campaign you can still mess around. Try flying up really high and see if you cam survive with sheilds so much fun. Only thing you need to add is the ability to chose your mech/robot and add crosshairs on the other views, it is very hard to aim in the other views and. I feel restricted to 1 view because of no crosshairs on the other views. Besides those things this app is AWESOME!!!!!
Great app, but....
It really needs an update. Space shuttle and apollo also need updates. I own 8 x- plane apps including this one, and personally either this one or x-plane hi-def is my favorite. I've beaten this game over 100 times once even at 200% difficulty I just would really like an update for a great app.
