‘Archetype’ Released for iPhone, 5v5 Online First-Person Shooter

Archetype is a newly-released first person shooter that was first released on the Czech App Store, then months later, was finally revealed to the United States.  It promises smooth, 5v5 online multiplayer with a variety of weapons and maps; 6 and 5 respectively.  Along with that, Archetype serves up dual-stick controls, similar to that of Minigore and Meteor Blitz.

It’ll be interesting to see how this shapes up against games such as Eliminate, although the features seem to be much more extensive.  Archetype also includes the ability to melee with any weapon, something we haven’t seen in any FPS so far, and it also features radar to track enemies and such.

Piling more into the feature list is the fact that you can add enemies and friends and challenge them to a deathmatch at anytime.  Of course, they’ll have to be online and accept, and I’m sure there will be some sort of button to show if they’re offline or online.

Archetype is available on the App Store now for $2.99.

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.
