FinalStrike 3D review (iOS / Universal)

November 24, 2011

“Will I be right or wrong
A kick, a punch, a final strike”

10 word description: Helicopter combat, 15 missions, 4 different helicopters, multiple weapons & enemies.

10 word review: Arcade shooter with decent visuals, good controls and tough challenge.

You will like this if you enjoy: The shooting elements of Mega Drive (Genesis) classic Desert Strike.

When you get close enough, the mission targets are highlighted with this reticule thingy

The good news: The 3D graphics are pretty good. Controls work well and there’s a tilt or d-pad option. Blowing stuff up is fun. Nice particle effects on explosions.

The bad news: Might be a bit too simplistic for some. The difficulty, although welcome, could also deter the more casual gamer.

Arcadelife verdict: Pretty good, really. Better than I expected and admittedly a lot of fun flying around blowing stuff up and shooting tanks.

I'm about half a second away from the Game Over screen
