What's New in Version 1.07
Like Metroid Meets Megaman... Oh, wait...
When I first saw this game, I was annoyed by its title, thinking that it was just a Metroid knockoff. However, the title, while unoriginal, definitely sums up the gameplay: It's basically a cross between Metroid (my favourite game series) and Megaman. And for the iPod, what a hell of a cross it is.
The enemy designs are both diverse and brilliant, and the level designs are completely variable.
Gameplay is both simple and classic - in many ways harkening back to the old NES 2D platform-shooters. The best part is, the control setup is fully customisable, so you can shift the buttons anywhere you prefer!
Also, music is awesome. 'Nuff said.
The one complaint I have is the loading time of the App; that is to say, it takes FOREVER and a day. If something could be done about that, this game would be perfect. Also, I'd like to see an Ice Beam or Plasma Beam equivalent in this.
First, for the benefit of the readers, I'll outline the tech acquisition that I'm aware of so far:
1) Warp gate (can do random stations)
2) S.P.A.K.K. double-shot
3) standard jet pack on all suits
4) 10x stock of jet pack boosters
Now for the review. I like it. The platforming is sound, the controls are tight, the infinite tech development of weapons and armor is ingenious, and the random level design is impressive. Most of the levels are doable without I.A.P.s. If you must make a purchase, get the homing missiles - none of the others are really worth it, although the plasma returning shot comes close.
Some of the most obvious flaws are the inability to aim in any direction other than horizontal and the (ironically) repetitive gameplay. The homing missile I.A.P. partially mitigates that.
Hali gets bonus points for being hot. ;)
It's like Metroid Fusion and Super Metroid and Metroid Other M combined with Mega Man! The same about the metroid games is the suits and the arm cannons. Also Hali is a girl like Samus. The same with Mega Man is the arm cannon's power beams. They look just like mega mans. This is an awesome game! I feel like i'm playing a metroid game straight on my Iphone! The only difference from the Metroid games though is that, normal mode is basically easy mode. After I complete normal/easy I will try out hardcore and i'll write another review and tell you how it went. Other than that this game rocks!
