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.
The game is just plain fun, and its style hearkens to “1942” and other classic scrolling shooters. It does a great job of making the action challenging without filling the screen with bullets and explosions. The graphics can be a bit small, but they are full of detail. The music sounds like it comes straight from the sound track of a blockbuster war epic.
