assassinscreed3 150x150 App Review: Assassins Creed   Altairs Chronicles by GameloftAssassin’s Creed – Altair’s Chronicles by Gameloft is one of the best titles for the iPhone. You are Altair, the master assassin, and must search and find The Chalice to end the crusade. Along your journey you will kill Templars, climb buildings, swing around with your grappling hook, and even perform tortures to get your questions answered. This game takes place in 1191 AD.  So, rather than shooting enemies with advanced weapons, you get to use direct combat with swords, daggers, and even bombs.

As you begin the game, you have a sword and not many skills to work with. You are given brief instructions, and then you are on your way. On the bottom of the screen are the controls. On the left side of the screen is your joystick, and on the right is your sword, jumping, and shield abilities. At the top of your screen, your health and number of orbs you have collected is displayed. As you approach an enemy, simply start using your sword to kill him. As you progress through the game, you will learn combo attacks to help you eliminate the enemies quicker. Throughout the game are blue orbs and red orbs. The blue orbs are used to upgrade your sword and health.  The red orbs are used to heal you. As you continue, instructions are given to inform you on the next task you must accomplish. At the top of the screen is a green arrow to help lead you in the right direction.

Every so often you’ll need to get some information or a key to help you. To pickpocket a person, walk quietly up to them and press the yellow button that appears. The view will then change to the inside of the person’s bag. Swipe your finger all across the screen to light up the bag, and safely guide the object you want through the bag to the exit without touching the sides or any other items. To perform an interrogation, approach the victim and press the yellow button that appears. Press the numbers in the correct numerical order when the red circles become green. You will then get the information and be on your way. At any point during the game, you can exit to the main menu and choose a memory to play. Any level that you have completed will become playable.

Assassin’s Creed is an amazing game that has finally graced the app store with its presence. It works very well with the iPhone and is fun to play. The game is very long and detailed.  It is definitely worth the money and is a great title to show off to your friends.

Assassin’s Creed – Altair’s Chronicles is $5.99 in the iTunes App Store.

    It’s a great game but I am stuck in an area where there are 15 squares. When you step on the green it jumps to the left, and the tile you are on turns to red. A door in the center that has the blue arrow point to. How do I get the door to open…Thanks
