Shay Casey of h.grenade games has written in to alert us to his upcoming space shooter Circuit Strike.One for the iPhone and iPod touch.  He describes Circuit Strike.One as the perfect game for the Geometry Wars fan who would enjoy a larger playfield and more Asteroids-like pacing.

The game features a music visualizer and changes in sound effects / music that are tied to the gameplay in a fashion similar to Rez.

Some of the features as listed by the developer:

  • Real-time Music Visualizer Effects Synced to Gameplay (hits change tempo, add fills, trigger visuals, etc. in time with the music)
  • Glowing Retro 3D Graphics Style Environment
  • Pulse Pounding Techno Soundtrack by DJ Vitamin Devo
  • 3D Camera Based Menu System + User Interface
  • High Speed Inertia Based Physics + Gameplay
  • Frenetic action and control in Zero G
  • Bullet-time Slow-Motion Game Mechanic
  • Time + Skill Based Difficulty
  • Multiple Intelligent Enemy Classes

Casey intends to provide us with a gameplay video in the next few days, so stay tuned for a closer look at Circuit Strike.One.

    um.... although both inspired by geometry wars; this upcoming game looks just like dropship

    @dannys95 - I recently purchase and played some of Dropship and I can tell for fact that the two game are nothing alike... short off maybe some "glow" effects and black background. Dropship is played like Asteroids on one screen with limited camera movement. Also, as you can see Circuit Strike's primary camera is top down. ngmoco did a great job with Dropship but it is a very different game coming from similar inspiration.

    Finally a game that

    1) Has a refined and visual style that looks fantastic
    2) Exhibits some good gameplay

    A game that is made for the game, not potential profits and I will certainly keep an eye on this (Especially as it looks like its going to be a Rez type game :D:D:D:D:D:D:D)

    played the internet version

    the controls are so stiff

    your rotation is not smooth

    instead of rotating in small increments, it seems you rotate 15+ degrees at a time

    i'm sure this can easily be fixed

    Hence the "more asteroids-like" gameplay.

    Hey guys - Thanks for the WAY TOO early reviews!! ; ) We had to take down the web demo because that was an early alpha build and does not reflect the final game or control scheme. The game camera has been enhanced, the controls have been refined, reverse thrust added, new enemies classes created, and 3L3TRONIC is currently working on the final music for the game. Right now I am adding the music visualizer vfx. This is where it gets fun : )

    An official beta test is coming up soon, so just email me and we will select a handful of testers when the time comes. Stay tuned and thanks again for your interest in CS.ONE.
