Heads up! It's later than the rest of the weekly releases, but Activision and Lucid Games' Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions [$9.99] has just hit the App Store. It might not be live for you yet, but it will be at this link. As promised, it's $4.99, without IAP, and available worldwide. It's a faithful adaptation of the game released on console and PC late last year, lacking the Evolved content added in, but potentially coming down the road. Still, it's a bargain over the $14.99 price some people paid for the game. And hey, this supports Metal and MFi controllers!

Check out my impressions from the other day for more on the game. With Geometry Wars: Touch gone from the App Store now, this is the only Geometry Wars game you can play on iOS. It's got all the modes from that and Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 along with the single player campaign a la Geometry Wars: Galaxies, so there's a lot to do here. Check it out, and we'll have a full review of the game soon.

  • amsi

    Yes! I'm getting it!

  • amsi

    First buy

  • josh_hofer

    YESSSS! Purchased.

    But.... ugh, they botched the app name so it looks like "Geometry..." -- so ugly, haaaaaate it when devs make this oversight.

    • Nick Davies

      If only you knew the complexities of making that work across multiple devices!

      • josh_hofer

        haha! Fair enough. Would be nice if it was short and sweet like GW: 3 though! πŸ˜‰

      • Nick Davies

        I'll change it for any future updates

      • josh_hofer

        <3_<3

  • Luciano1084

    What a week

    • Nick Davies

      Tell me about it!

  • amsi

    Played the first level it's pretty awesome and the controls are smooth and the auto fire feature is nice (which you can override anytime to fire where you want)

  • ImJPaul

    Finally!

  • skylined87

    My oh my, gotta love this instabuy! Let the epic iOS Geometry War of 2015 commence!!! πŸ™‚

  • squirpe

    Bought straight away. Looks gorgeous on iPhone 6+ and plays fantastic. Money well spent! I hope this does really well.

    • Nick Davies

      So do we!

  • aeranth

    Bought. Bought. Bought. And... Bought!!!

    Sadly, my TA app is now broken. I hit the 'watch' tab on the post from the other day and now it is a ghosted placeholder with no info, and when I toggle the 'watch' tab off it does so, then goes immediately back to the previous state. Ultra weird.

    • Zendorphin

      Yep same problem, same device

  • MrThickDick

    Just in time for my MFI controller that will be delivered tomorrow πŸ™‚

    • Nick Davies

      Then you're in for a treat!

      • Zendorphin

        Which controllers work besf?

      • Nick Davies

        People seem to like the stratus steel series, but they're all pretty good, am sure some of the guys on here could recommend some

  • Joe Burkett

    dude its straight up the port from console/pc release...with that said... Radian games has the best touch controls around and this comes close, go into the options set it to free sticks autofire off best way to play...i just hit 20 million in passive mode not using a controller so that makes me very happy...they just need gamecenter support but other wise Radian games and this are the best dual stick shooters around...

    • Nick Davies

      Thanks, glad you like it

  • bubby525

    Seems like a developer version to me. Try logging into Facebook. Plus I can't for the life of me find how to upgrade or change the ship.

    • Zendorphin

      Won't let me. Think wrong version has been uploaded.

      • Nick Davies

        Fixed now, we just forgot to flip the switch on the Facebook app

    • Joe Burkett

      you cant change your ship you can buy ai drones to help you but that is only in adventure mode and you dont get the choice to buy a dude for like 3 levels in or so if i call recall...

  • Zendorphin

    Facebook/Leaderboards not working for me (6 Plus). Anyone else having that problem?

    Game absolutely awesome and gorgeous though. No regrets! πŸ™‚ A total steal for the price!

    • Nick Davies

      That should be fixed up now

  • bigrand1

    Android version?

    • Nick Davies

      Other mobile versions will be coming soon..

      • Mozaik

        Why but android is much better

      • Mozaik

        Why but android is much better

  • amusing Grace

    Leaderboards on Facebook???? BOOH! What were they thinking, seriously???

    • Nick Davies

      It's the best solution for people who compare scores against friends. It doesn't post anything to your wall just links your friends scores

      • amusing Grace

        And what about comparing scores to Gamecenter friends!? My FB friends aren't really gamers and on GC i got at least lots of TouchArcade members with similar tastes. Other than that, i'm more concerned about letting a business in on my private data. So, are Gamecenter leaderboards coming in an update? A highscore game without that is like Champagner without bubbles, stale.

      • Nick Davies

        No plan for game centre leaderboards at the moment, sorry

      • Joe Burkett

        i am sure it will be added dude... pretty awesome mobile port its like exact gamecenter is on the achievements. supposedly the retro evolved will be patched in later.

      • Nick Davies

        With the friend notifications we have. In the game then we can't use both systems. It's a case of pleasing half the people but not being able to please everyone. Personally I'm fine with Facebook log ins, but I appreciate some aren't

  • ShinHadoukin

    It wont come up in the App Store?

    • Nick Davies

      Which store are you looking in?

  • Joe Burkett

    Nick are they going to be adding Retro evolved patch to it later like the console version?

    • Nick Davies

      We're looking into the evolved content, but nothing confirmed yet

      • Joe Burkett

        great job on the port the controls for touch i was worried cause Radiangames has spoiled me with there awesome controls...once i changed them to free sticks autofire off it was jelly... Hope you look into gamecenter leaderboards later since you are using gamecenter for the achievements...I have much more friends on Gamecenter that play ios games that i met on here that are not on FB

  • amsi

    What's the difference between the double arrow and the single arrow?

    • Nick Davies

      Replied above but it's a quick start button which uses the last drone and super you had used..

      • Joe Burkett

        ah hah i thought so awesome

  • DonnyDJ76

    There are 1000 points of Game Center Achievements which are expensive to add to a game. So glad I made the purchase!

  • Joe Burkett

    Hey Nick on Adventure mode there is a single arrow which takes you to the next screen before you start it, what is the Double arrow to the left of it ? it is not mentioned... it seems to jump right into the game when you hit it, and its RED / disabled till you beat the level...

    • Nick Davies

      It's a quick start button, it will start the level with the last drone and super you used, be more useful later down the line when you've unlocked a few more things..

  • DemoEvolved

    Great game but I prefer it on console

    • schoolhouse spirits

      Get a moga rebel controller. This games plus my rebel is a gamers dream

    • bilboad

      With touch controls I agree, better on console. Playing with my Mad Catz controller on an iPad 4 though, just as good as console as long as you don't care about multiplayer.

  • zachawry

    Not on Japan store!

  • Maegic

    Game is great, but there are 2 big letdowns:

    1. No progress sync between devices
    2. No Gamecenter high scores

    • Nick Davies

      Sync should work through iCloud

      • Maegic

        No it doesn't. Game doesn't even show up in the iCloud Drive options.

      • Nick Davies

        looks like something isn't working, am looking into it

      • Maegic

        Great. Thanks.

      • Nick Davies

        Is anyone having issues with any other games using cloud sync?

  • Jrec15

    Can anyone (maybe with experience with both versions) speak to whether the xbox or mobile version of this is the way to go? Not as concerned about the lack of extra content. With the controls though, does this seem like a good fit for a controller, touch screen, or does it work fine on both?
