Industry veteran Anders Hejdenburg, the lead designer behind the genius FPS game Battlefield 2, makes his debut on the iPhone under the name 1337 Game Design, quite an elite name in my personal opinion. Anywho, his game code named Dark Nebula has finally released onto the App Store, and while a little short, it’s only Episode 1.
It seems like there will be some sort of episodic content going on, although it’s very obscure and mostly speculation. The “Episode 1” in the title hints to an “Episode 2” coming in the near future, but we don’t know if it will be a totally new application, DLC, or a free update. With only 11 levels and 30 minutes of your free time, Dark Nebula may or may not be worth your time.
Controls are said to be some of the best in the App Store that were carefully implemented through hours and hours of testing. Check out the trailer for more information on how the game plays out, and Dark Nebula is available for $0.99.
