‘Grokion’ Shoots its way into the App Store

Well that was a quiet release.  Grokion, the Metroid-inspired platformer, has finally been released on the App Store.  While chances are slim for an official Metroid game to be ported, Grokion looks to be one of the closest things to people dying for that sort of experience.

You are LDU-1 – a Lunar Defense Unit designed by Dr. Savain and the very last unit standing in a fleet of security bots. Your mission is to find Dr. Savain and restore order to the biosphere before the exiled arrive, enabling them to land safely.

The developer(s) did a terrific job with the graphics and overall look of the game, and it’s one game that I’m awaiting to try out.  For now, you can check out some screenshots and their launch video.  Grokion is available for $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.

  1. No worries, no worries. I’ve already purchased the game, it’s just a matter of finding time to play 😉

  2. Thank you very much for the article. I really hope you enjoy the game. We’ve been getting great feedback on the game everywhere and we’ve already got a patch in the works which will address the initial gameplay issues that people are having. The patch will be submitted within a few days after some play-testing.

    Thanks again,

    Best regards,
