Currently on sale for the grand price of nothing is third-person shooter, EPOCH.2.
The game has you trekking across a post-apocalyptic landscape as you battle robot against robot. Using an intuitive finger swiping control method you’ll be able to select targets, dodge incoming fire, make split-second tactical decisions, take cover, and launch various special abilities. Wave upon wave of enemy robots are against you in arena-style combat, so it should be a pretty frantic but satisfying affair.
EPOCH.2 is on sale in honor of it being Apple’s pick for App of the Week this week, so expect it to be a pretty limited offer.
EPOCH.2 is on its way, and coming really soon as it’s set to release tomorrow, November 14. Yes! Tomorrow! So get ready to enjoy some third-person shooting action to destroy all enemy robots who dare stand in your way! For now, though, check out the new trailer!
Of course we had to start with the video. Notice anything…familiar? It should be fairly obvious that this features the same gameplay and engine as the incredibly popular Gears of War series, coming right to iOS. In addition, Uppercut Games is a new game studio that is headed up by none other than Andrew James and Ed Ormon – both coming from Irrational Games, the makers of Bioshock, according to the CultOfMac Blog and PocketGamer.biz.
This is big news. While Epic brought us their own innovative use of the engine in Infinity Blade, this is the first time we’ve seen such a direct “console-style” gameplay using the engine. In addition, the pedigree of the development studio shows just how serious iOS gaming is becoming across the board.
