Space Samurai Abound in Battlefortress

"Is your space-jiutsu up to the challenge?"

A very good question. I suppose it would have to be in order to face-off against the evil Shogun Youhatsu and avenge my master. Problem is, the crafty son-of-a-gun has positioned an entire armada of battle fortresses along the way. On the one hand it means a lot of work in order to reach the badguy. On the other, it means a string of boss battles. And who doesn't love a good boss battle?

Battlefortress uses an interesting arcade-inspired freemium model, allowing users to purchase Continues with real money. Of course, they can also be earned in-game through achievements and high scores. So skilled space samurai fighter pilots can take down the nasty Shogun without paying a cent, whereas anyone lacking reflexes (but not the drive to win) can even the scales with cash. Yup, sounds about right.

Battlefortress is out now and it's free. What's the harm in giving it a look-see?

iDodge: Space Ninja

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Jeff Scott on January 19th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
An accelerometer based space game that takes the shooting out of shooter and still delivers solid, difficult, and amazingly fun arcade action. An example for how to get the controls just right in a game.
