If you’re in the mood for some Tilt To Live [$2.99 / Lite, HD], now is a better time than most to boot up the title. Developer One Man Left Studios has pushed out a new update to the game, adding in a new mode and a new weapon via an in-game $.99 purchase.
The update, which is available on the game’s main menu, has been lovingly dubbed “Viva la Turret," and as it implies, it gives you access to a mounted chaingun-like weapon. The weapon, “The Perforator," is exclusive to this new mode, which is also called “Viva la Turret."
The point of Viva la Turret is to grab points, of course, and the easiest way to do so is by collecting “The Perforator" power-ups that spawn on the map. Whenever you get access, you’ll be assault by a stream of projectiles from all angles. The key here is to use it without getting smacked, and then to snag all the sweet blue leftovers from victims for crazy points multipliers. Here’s a video of it in action:
Viva la Turret seems cool and should provide a nice change of pace opportunity. That’s not to say Tilt To Live every really gets old, but hey, something new to do with a game you love, right? I’ll note here that this update is currently only available for the iPhone and iPod Touch versions of the shooter. An HD version of the update is in the works, however.
Tilt to Live, if you didn’t catch my drift earlier, is a fantastic game. I don’t know if there’s anyone out who doesn’t own it already, but if you don’t, you’ll probably love it. Here’s some literature if you’re curious.
