Darkside (iOS) – Asteroids for the Massive 3D Retina generation … coming soonMay 3, 2012
How much do I love Asteroids? Too much. And now this is coming to iOS…
I’ve been playing the PC demo of Darkside but I’m trying to restrain myself until I can experience it on my iPad. Expect to see a review of the iOS version of the game on Arcadelife very near the release date. Essentially, you’re flying a small spacecraft around a massive asteroid, blowing stuff up and generally crying with joy at the sheer beauty of the pyrotechnic destruction. There’s a lot more to it than that, of course, but the core game is what counts and this one feels close to perfect. As long as the iOS dual-stick controls are good, and there’s no reason to doubt that at this point, you’re looking at a ton of fun, particularly if you’re already a fan of Asteroids type games.
