3d_tunnel_vision screenPsychosis Studio has just released 3D Tunnel Vision [App Store] for the iPhone and iPod touch.

A number of "tunnel games" have recently appeared in the App Store and those we've checked out really haven't impressed us.  3D Tunnel Vision, on the other hand, is actually a rather fun, simple game for those with coordination enough to fancy a high speed run down an obstacle-filled tunnel.

3D Tunnel Vision features several game modes to choose from.  Arcade mode is a five life, level-to-level run through 10 progressively harder tunnels filled with narrow passages, rotating obstacles, and slowly opening gates.  Mines mode presents one long tunnel littered with floating mines--how long can you last?  Survival mode gives you only one life to see how far through the levels you can go.  And any tunnels unlocked in Arcade mode can be individually played in Replay mode.

The game features both a tilt and a joystick mode, the latter offering control of your craft by touching any point on the screen and dragging in the desired direction.  I find the latter to be the far superior method of control.

While it's not terribly difficult to make it through all 10 tunnels, making use of available speed boosts which are collected along the way (and refraining from using the collectible slow-downs) adds challenge as your skill increases, and the Mines mode brings a nice variation to the core gameplay.  3D Tunnel Vision is a fairly simple iPhone maze racer, but at its $0.99 limited time introductory price, it might just be worth your while.

See our brief gameplay video to get a feel for the action.

    Completely don't like the font style and the music.
    But the graphics are great. Will find alot of players, I'm sure.

      i dont like the font either, doesn't suit it at all maybe replace it with a futuristic type of font? I like the music though.

    Is it just me? I think this game should have a ship or something to guide?

    • slappy

      I was thinking the same thing. Hoping a small ship would be there to navigate with. Be cool if the tunnel curves too.

      • Rad

        Ok let me re-phrase; this this game would be more interesting if it had a third person view. The first person view just doesn't work for me.

    You're IN the ship. You don't see an exterior view of your car when you're driving, do you? The developer should fix the fact that all the screenshots in the app store need to be rotated 90 degrees, though.

    looks pretty cool, kind of hypnotic even but i think it needs a bit of colour, not too much though and maybe a 'swoosh' sound effect or something when passing objects/doors.

    I actually felt the music was one of the best things about this game. I like the looks - may grab it for .99

    Doesn't seem to be way to play iPod music. Even if I turn off in-game sound in the options menu, it turns back on when the game is restarted. Hopefully there will be an update to fix this. I'm also not a fan of the game's music, which means playing in silence...

    Agreed, the music is just annoying. I also like the idea of adding "swoosh" sounds when you pass "walls".
