Psychosis 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.
