Dragon Fire is the prefect example of why buyers cringe when they see the GameSalad logo come up on their screen. The real problem is that Dragon Fire is not a terrible game, but rather a mediocre game marred by some issues that make it not as enjoyable as it should be. It’s also fairly representative of the offerings that come from the aforementioned game authoring tool. If this game were given a bit more TLC it could rise above the ever increasing number of vertical shooters that are making their way into the App Store, but as it stands right now the unique premise of playing a dragon doesn’t help the rest of the game.
There are many articles out there reviewing better known games available on the App Store. However, there are tens of thousands of games available, and these reviews tend to overlook some of the lesser-known treasures. Here are five games that you probably haven't played, but probably should.
Thanks to Apple's elegant hardware design and the hard work of innovative app developers, the iPad is quickly becoming one of the best gaming platforms around. This is especially true for "hot seat" games (multiplayer games during which you pass the iPad around from one player to the next). Unlike the iPhone and many other gaming devices, the iPad has a large touchscreen that is easy on the eyes and invites human interaction. Nothing beats having friends and family huddled around a board game, but the multiplayer gaming experience on the iPad comes very close. This article takes a look at some notable hot seat games available for the iPad.
Zombie Line isn't all that compelling, but I haven't regretted buying it for one second. Its unique visual style sucks you into the game and the interesting array of weapons continues to surprise you and make you wonder what's coming next.
In this game, you must protect a damsel in distress from zombies as she tries to get to the door at the end of each level. Shoot everything that's not the damsel, collect money to buy weapons and health, and get to the exit on each level.
Zombie Flick is one of the more original games I looked at. As with other zombie games, you're the lone survivor fighting off hordes of the undead. But this one lacks guns or any sort of traditional weapon.
Zombies come at you from all directions, and all you have to throw at them are items from the pile of junk you're standing on. You fight off the moldering crew with rolls of toilet paper, old guitars, and an occasional cat. The targeting is also interesting; you simply swipe a line between the object you're holding and the zombie you wish to attack.
