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.
