‘Caster’ Third Person Shooter Coming to iPhone

Independent developer Mike Smith let us know that his third person shooter game Caster has been successfully ported to the iPhone. The game should be available next month through the App Store.

The game has been a project of his since college and has taken him just over five years to release. It finally came out in January of this year for PC and Mac and seems to have gotten positive reviews.

Caster involves running, jumping and shooting your way around the environments while collecting energy balls and destroying enemies. The game includes deformable landscapes as well as an upgrade system for movement and weapons.

Smith seems particularly pleased with the control scheme on the iPhone, which is certainly a challenge for a third person shooter. Video of iPhone gameplay:
