035197_2Inspired by Dante's Inferno, The Inferno is a top down-puzzle game which will have players adventuring through all five circles of hell collecting souls, avoiding obstacles, and hopefully reaching the exit of each level before running out of lives and/or time. The story is told through a text-based character conversations before levels, and the only real fault I can find in the game is the somewhat confusing default control scheme. Instead of a normal D-Pad, you control your movement east and west with your left thumb, and north and south with your right. It's a little disorienting, but a quick trip to the game's option can turn this in to a much more comfortable standard D-Pad.

What is interesting about The Inferno is how Xpressed is selling it on the App Store. There is a full version of The Inferno [$2.99] with all 121 levels, The Inferno [99¢] that comes loaded with 50 levels, and The Inferno [Free] with the first 23 levels. Regardless of whether or not you download the 99¢ or free version, both can be upgraded to the full version from within the game via DLC.

While Xpressed has also released a trailer for the game, here is our own gameplay video showing the first few levels:

To celebrate the release of The Inferno, UniWar [Free] will be available for free for the next 24 hours. UniWar is a turn-based strategy game with online multiplayer that is a ton of fun. If you somehow need more reason to download this game while it's free, check out our review.

    All those different ways seem useless. Who would buy the 50 level one? Just get the free or full one, then buy the DLC?

    Uniwar by itself is incredible, anybody that loves strategy should have it.

    Great little game. To get all levels a little cheaper just download the free version then sign up for the bonus content. Once you have registered and activated your account, go back to the game and the second 59p pack will now be free in game so you just have to download the 3 remaining single packs which will cost a total of £1.77 instead of £2.39 if you were to download the all levels pack:)

    Uniwar has been the best game on my iphone since it came out and I've downloaded MANY. I've played it hundreds of times and it just gets better. It has online multiplayer with push notification. The interface is perfect, the three races are very well balanced. No other turn based strategy game (and I've tried them all) comes close. If you want strategy on a phone, Uniwar is King.
