App Review: Alien Abuse by Eurocenter
Alien Abuse by Eurocenter is a very fun platform game. You have been imprisoned in a prison where terrible experiments are being performed. During a prison riot, something goes wrong and everyone in the prison except for you is infected by a substance called Abuse that turns them into aliens. Your job is to fight your way out of the prison by destroying the aliens and prevent further spread of Abuse.
When you first start playing the game, the controls are a little bit difficult to get use to. After a minute or two these controls come naturally. To move your person from left to right, press the far edges of the joystick on the screen. There is a fire button and a jump button on the right of the screen. To aim your gun, use the innermost area of the joystick.
There are four difficulties levels in this game: easy, normal, hard, and extreme. There is also an Extras category to let you play quick games. The quick games are named Leon, Frags, and Acid. To help you complete a level, there are teleporters, transporters, and lots of different automatic weapons that you activate by pressing down. There are also power-ups that you can get to help you in your quest. These power-ups can refill your life, help you move faster, and even make you partially invisible. Every once and a while there are check points which you must secure before they are activated. These are also activated by pressing down.
This game is very addicting and fun. One suggestion for this game is a pause button that gives you the option to exit to the main menu. It would be very useful and eliminate the need to exit the app to access the main menu.
Alien Abuse is available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99
