TipCat Mobile puts us at the helm of a nano machine in Cell World, as we set forth to combat dreadful viruses. The human race depends on us as we are responsible for saving it from this impending doom.
The machine moves in a in a side-scroller motion, and we can control its movements through the phone’s accelerometer. There is an option in the settings to keep it at a neutral position by calibrating it.
We are equipped with a weapon to battle the enemies with, and it gets upgraded as the game play progresses. We can also touch enemies to fire missiles at them, or release a shock wave to destroy them and generate protection for ourselves. There are tabs at both bottom corners of the screen to trigger the shockwave.
Cell War has nine stages with different themes in an arcade styled-approach. We can choose to play at a difficulty mode of our choice; Easy, Normal or Hard. There is a tutorial to help us out initially if we need some help with getting into the groove of the game. But once we get playing, the game gets interesting with the viruses of all sorts coming our way.
The game comes with a price tag of $2.99, and I think it is pretty much worth it, but you can always try out the Lite version to test the waters first. Scores can be submitted online to check our rankings on a global level.
The graphics are striking and it looks like the developers have put in a lot of work, especially while creating the viruses. The sound and music also give the game an extra edge.
I would recommend this game for the simple reason that it uses the iPhone’s control abilities really well. That coupled with the graphics and game play make it a fine one.
