Games for iOS: Issue 3

Angry Birds Space

Series Angry Birds mdash; one of the most successful lines of projects for Android and iOS-devices. Simplicity of the concept, the qualitative study of physics, a moderately high complexity mdash; games is the perfect recipe for a smartphone or tablet. Sales are direct proof of that mdash; three days have been downloaded ten million AGS for Mac, PC, Android and iOS. This is, to say the least, very much.

Space mdash; already the fourth part of the AB. The point, of course, remains the same. There are several species of birds, which must be run from a slingshot them to destroy the object of their carcass and crushed green pigs. Changes in the mechanics than with previous releases practically no. But the thing is, this time in space, facilities for demolition are located either in microgravity or on the planets themselves. Last surrounded by a gravitational field mdash; if a bird gets into it, it will change the flight path, birds will begin to tighten until it imprinted in the ground.

Levels are designed so that it is necessary to calculate in detail where and when our feathered projectile enters the zone of gravity and whether out of it. This is, perhaps, the only significant innovation, because before the birds flew only a parabola. However, for a long time to get used to the new environment is not necessary. Angry Birds Space instantly addictive, and at first do not care about the fact that we offer all the same, just in a different wrapper.

Game took place relatively quickly mdash; less than a half hour. Of course, you can prolong the pleasure, trying to go through all the levels of the three stars, but it is not for the faint of heart. Angry Birds Space leaves a pleasant experience, but from a series of secondary begins to blow. Developers came up with a great concept that could properly implement it. However, how much can be produced virtually the same?

The problem is that this game is one idea. If you change something, would not it. And if you are here to continue to rivet Space, then the meaning of purchase will dissipate over time: from time to time almost no change. Yes, there are chips with gravity, which is a bit refreshed gameplay. But this is not enough. However, to pay such a ridiculous amount for a pack of new levels is still possible. This is still a great, uvlekatelnyynbsp, a project that did not feel sorry for killing time.

Pros:

  • low price;
  • the action takes place in outer space;
  • gravity and weightlessness refresh familiar gameplay.

Disadvantages:

  • secondary;
  • too little innovation.

Rating:

  • 9/10

      Hunters 2

      Quality turn-based strategy are dying. This applies to all platforms, but on their iOS and so virtually no. However Rodeo Games has decided to show that mobile devices can exist TBS genre and still sell well. The second part of the Hunters is made on the basis of the classic sequel: to improve everything that was good about the original. This pravilnyynbsp, approach, and as a result the project has turned out excellent representative of his species.

      Distant future, space war, the battle for the planet with hostile races mdash; pall it so that induce vomiting only one mention. But in Hunters 2 all surprisingly competently, without much pathos. There is a force, there is order, there are enemies mdash; everything, nothing more is needed. The gameplay is a classic TBS. Good or bad, to solve each for himself. Gameplay is now, in 2012, it may seem a little old fashioned, but those who remember the heyday of the genre, certainly whisk avaricious tear.

      Touch screen is the best suited for such games. Control units are very easy and simple, which is largely due to a really good interface: no nonsense, all the buttons are the perfect size. In between missions available to store new types of weapons and upgrades, the goods which mdash; as in the horn of plenty. Not be difficult to make a character completely unique features yet so flexible that offer limitless possibilities for settings. Also allowed to do their weapons mdash; too with any parameters, just to have enough credits.

      Graphics Hunters 2 mdash; one of the best on iOS. This did not expect from a turn-based strategy for mobile devices, because usually the greatest attention is paid to the visual part of the shooters and racing. Texture perfectly detailed, you can see all the little blades of grass and stones. Special effects also turned to the glory mdash; shooting beautifully decorate outbursts bursts and explosions. But the animation is, unfortunately, pumped mdash; movement fighters look unnatural.

      Hunters 2 started relatively well, the series could be a great future. Reviews are mostly positive, with praise equally as excellent visual component and the true spirit of the classic turn-based strategy. Here would have an original plot mdash; prices would project was not. We hope in the development of the third part in the Rodeo Games will consider it.

      Pros:

      • TBS-classical mechanics;
      • easy control and interface;
      • excellent graphics.

      Disadvantages:

      • not the lowest price;
      • cliched plot.

          Light the Flower

          Logic games as Android, iOS and at just a dime a dozen. However, most are quite good mdash; this genre on mobile platformah feels most confident that it is easy to explain. The ease of gameplay and the ability to move a little convolutions on the way to work or school, during a break mdash; more of such projects is not required.

          Chillingo Ltd long puzzled over the concept. Developers have the basis familiar to any student law laquo; angle of incidence equals the angle otrazheniyaraquo;, wrapped him in a colorful palette and stuck a price tag of 99 cents. And it really well!

          Sense Light the Flower is extremely simple. There are stunted flower with a sad expression. That it bloomed and smiled, you need to let the flow of sunlight directly on the plant. Make it available with a mirror, sometimes several. Skillfully avoiding obstacles that block the light, the player turns the reflector so that the beam fell right on ficus. It’s a bit like one level of Uncharted 2 in the ancient temple, but here, of course, all over the budget and not so beautiful. To make the most of the levels are star-bonuses mdash; to get extra points, the stream should be directed through them.

          Despite its simplicity, the project delays. In addition, he has a good capacity to continue. Developers can create new levels almost indefinitely, although in this case will quickly lose uniqueness. As unobtrusive spring game to match the weather mdash; at the time.

          Pros:

          • interesting gameplay;
          • low price;
          • growing complexity.

          Disadvantages:

          • mediocre graphics.
