Strike Force Trio
$1.99 who will TOFTT? Graphics look slick.
I already have my Galaga. I am going to sit this one out.
I'd love to hear some initial impressions on this one as well. With games like Skyforce Reloaded and Hotfield at my disposal, I'm not sure I see anything different enough about this one to make the purchase.
Oh sheesh, I have too many SHMUPs on my iTouch as it is.
Going to wait for a review..
My intial impression of Strike Force Trio is that the developer was mindful to create a game with substance in terms of a story and unique characters. I commend the game makers for not just going with eye candy like so many other game makers do.
However, the graphics leave a little to be desired. They're not the worst I've seen, but I've seen better on almost all of the other iPhone top-down shooter games. They're sorta amatuerish with a cheap comic book quality. And while flying your ship the animations can be choppy at times, which was a little distracting. I believe there is no game music. What it does has are beeps, zaps and 8-bit explosion sounds and they're on the cheap side. Unfortunatley, there's major lag with the touch controls. I haven't tried the accelerometer controls yet.
There's a campaign mode where you have the option of choosing one of three ships each with its own pilot. The fact that you can choose ships is some way connected to the bigger story. There's plenty of power ups that keep you busy. But again, the controls and the lag was a major turn off for me. With the right updates this game could be that game that you were hoping for.
Thanks for the insight. Is there any noticeable difference in the 3 ships besides looks and possibly storyline? Often this type of "choice" is really more of a gimmick and doesn't benefit game play any.
Wow that's like the fourth vertical shooter in a week.
I'll wait for Tyrian.
Sorry, I deleated it. It was too much of a dissapointment. But I'll check it periodically for updates.
