When iFighter Lite came out and I saw the screen shots I thought to myself “I’m buying the full version when it comes out”. The full version came out, I bought it, and even though I had forgone trying the lite version first, I didn’t regret my purchase at all. When I saw the screen shots for Super Laser I thought “I want to get this game”, and the feeling was cemented when I realized it was from the same developers that made iFighter. After spending some time with Super Laser I can only hope that this isn’t the last scrolling shooter we’ll see from EpicForce. Super Laser not only ups the ante from iFighter, but it feels like the game Assault Squadron should have been (minus the horizontal scrolling levels, though).
Some of my favorite action games are scrolling shooters, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t include at least one in this lineup. As with the platform games, scrolling shooters have been somewhat ignored on the iPhone. Like Ignite, iFighter does a decent job of overcoming the lack of physical control buttons and even provides the user with three different control schemes from which to choose.
