    New game on the app store for $2.99, looks interesting.

    No link as I am on my iPod Touch.

    Looks pretty good, kind of like iShoot in 3D? Anyone going to TOFTT?

    There is an official Scorched3D version coming. This is more casual I guess.

    One thing makes me wondering: it doesn't seem to have a wind alike factor.
     
  9. Meh, looks okay, if a little bit amateurish. Doesn't seem to be any ground deformations under explosions, which was a big part of Scorched's strategy, and is present in iShoot. (Both destroying the ground and buring someone in it.)

    Scorched 3D is awesome, all the more so because it's free, and if it's coming to the iPhone I'll definitely wait for that.

    LD50 ---quite a dumb name for a game ---this usually stands for leathal dose 50. It is a term to describe the quantity of a drug that at a certain concentration will kill 50% of test subjects...yeah I did learn something in pharmacology class!

    I hope there's more the game than what was in the video. It looked like a 3D version of iShoot except on Mars. That and I almost bought a t-shirt from their site.

    Fun title! I'm not usually much for artillery games, but LD50's particularly polished. There are three grades of "plain" missile, laser (tricky to aim accurately, but potentially capable of taking out your opponent in one shot, if you're spot on), guided missile (very tricky), three grades of nuclear missile (let's say they're relatively tolerant of near misses), earthquake (create chasms under your guidance!), warp, jump, and a couple more.

    Hit the opposing city nearby with a nuclear weapon, and watch them scoot up the mountainside, leaving the new crater behind, or propel them off the edge of the world.

    I'm mostly one for the "quick challenge" mode, where you're simply given a random assortment of weaponry, and it's just a "last city standing" affair, but for longer games, you can go with "campaign" mode instead, with varying costs for the different weapons, carried over across levels.

    About the worst I can say about it is it unfortunately doesn't play well with OS 3.0 (beta 1 or 2), crashing frequently; it's rock solid under 2.2.1.
