Blimp HD is original action platformer where you take role as war veteran Zed Pelin – blimp pilot on a planet Solbot. Working for local merchant company you wanted to finally find peace. Unfortunately the planet was attacked by malevolent aliens. Your blimp is armed with bombs and you’re fighting for freedom once again…

After a year from the release of the original Blimp – The Flying Adventures for iPhone/iPod touch now comes Blimp HD for the iPad!

Control Issue

Blimp HD is a platform game. You are given missions and you navigate a balloon ship around a stage to complete them. The missions include fetch/transport personnel, retrieving cargo, protecting targets, etc. Along the way, you have to avoid dangerous obstacles and take down enemies. Careful navigation is needed to survive because knocking on walls will decrease your life gauge.

The game has solid graphic design. Illustrations are very well done. Those different types of hand-drawn stages are excellent. The soundtrack is good, which suits the game very well. You have 20 stages to play and 3 difficulty levels to select. Overall, it looks like a beautiful game with lasting appeal.

But the major issue lies with the control. There are 2 types - slide or tilt. Using a slider onscreen is very difficult to manipulate your ship, tilting is better. But tilt is more suitable on iPhone, not very practical on a bigger iPad. Still, both options only control left/right movement, you still have to tab a button for up/down, even with tilt. The issue is, neither of the options give you precise navigation. There is no sensitivity adjustment. Since not to knock against anything is the key to survive, lack of precision is a problem.

Blimp HD is not an easy-to-get-into type of game. You must take time to practice until you are used to the separated movement controls. Tweaking the control system may help to get more people to enjoy this game.

Great game..needs better controls

This is a very well made game..playwise and graphically.. the controls need to be made "customizable" so you can slide it in the position comfortable for your fingers. Also..I think left and right arrows are better than a slider. Hope you will implment these suggestions in your next patch. Thanks :)
