What's New in Version 1.3
Improved stability and multiplayer performance
Challenging & Exciting! (Helpful hints)
Someone said the controls are hard to use - I disagree, the game just has some hard spots that require a little skill and a bit of luck perhaps. We found you can really do well by ignoring the time to complete a tomb the first time through and just focus on finding everything.
Try not to pass up a doorway with red eyed skulls (bonus puzzle room) sometimes you can't go back to them!
Use your inventory often to set the best artifact bonuses - the bonuses only take effect when the red meter is full (and the red meter goes to zero if you are touched by anything harmful!)
Never underestimate how powerful the spear can be both against enemies and to throw into a wall to stand on (sometimes two tiers high!)
To set different guns to the buttons, hold down the select and drag your finger to the slot. Try to find then Ammo and Health regen artifacts - when the red gauge is full you can stand back and hose everything down with buckets of lead if you like (cause they auto refill)
I think that is all we noted that is not clear. ** Below Is One Spoiler ** Don't look if you want to figure it out!!
* The spiked roller coming at you can be blown up high enough to run under (it is very picky about where though) 'nuf said!
I originally played this on PS3, I payed $15 for it and it was worth that. I like this game, it is very immersive. From what I can tell, it is pretty much the same game and I like having it on the iPad. It easier to get into then the PS3. I only just recently started playing it, some of the controls are bit more challenging then on the PS3 but it only makes the game more interesting, I guess. I am curious to see how the game progresses considering on the console version the controls get more involved.
An amazing game on the iPad. Unfortunate for those experiencing crashes but I have not had a single one. Graphics are simply amazing, control scheme is very good and there is tons of gameplay. Considered docking the game one star due to the frustrating difficulty of some areas but then again I am not the best at these sort of games so maybe it is just me. In any event a must buy.
