First Look at Inkvaders

We reported of Inkvaders coming to iPhone not too long ago, and the game promised to bring gameplay similar to that of Zombieville USA.  Now don’t get me wrong, but Zombieville is one of the most balanced side scrollers on the App Store and will be hard to beat.  Inkvaders seems to offer some similar gameplay with a different artwork and a different theme; let’s see if this is a real “Zombieville” killer.

My first impressions of this game have been positive, and while I don’t exactly feel that the game is better than Zombieville, it’s definitely on par or right behind it.  If you’re just a casual gamer, you won’t be able to tell the difference, and you will receive equal amounts of fun from each game.

One of the major things that Inkvaders nailed right on the dot was the gameplay balancing and the controls.  While the controls are very similar to that of Sparta, Inkvaders’s controls seem to work a little better and seem to be a little bit more responsive.  The gameplay balancing for Inkvaders is absolutely phenomenal, and I really commend the developers for that very reason.  Perfect gameplay balancing is a must in side scrollers, and most fail to accomplish a perfect balance.

All in all, Inkvaders is definitely something you should look out for if you’re a Zombieville USA fan, and it’s definitely better than most side-scrollers in the App Store.  While I didn’t enjoy Sparta or Mummy’s Revenge very much, Inkvaders was actually fun to play and kept me interested.  Please check for a full review on the game very soon.

Inkvaders was developed by The Games Faction and published by Chillingo, and I played through version 1.o on my 1st generation iPhone.  The price is $0.99.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
