iPhone game developer Meridian is about to follow up their top 10 hit Alive 4-Ever [$0.99] with a followup title that seems to share a lot of the same attributes. Against the Fire! is another dual-stick shooter but set in the city of Waterfront where strange fire ball monsters are causing havoc.
Your character Andrew, a firefighter trainee without any experience, is ordered to stay behind at the headquarters. However, the siren goes off while he is at the station alone and it turns out the alarm is coming from the hotel right next to the headquarters! A huge number of hotel guests are trapped inside the hotel as the fire ball monsters loom outside attacking. Not wanting to stand aside, Andrew has no choice but to rescue them from the fire scene!
Meridian provides the following details about the game:
- 50 challenging levels
- Upgradeable items such as fire hose, HP recovery and speed
- Variety of fire monsters
- Hidden character to unlock
- Best time achievement
- Ranking system for most points
There was a whole lot to like about Alive 4-Ever, so we're anxious to see what improvements have been made in their next title. Fans of Alive 4-Ever shouldn't worry, however, Meridian has already detailed a number of new features coming to their Zombie shooter including a survival mode, new maps and new weapons.
Against the Fire! is scheduled for release in September.
