App Review: Siberian Strike by Gameloft
Siberian Strike by Gameloft is one of the best airplane games on the App Store. The game is set in the 1940’s. You are playing as Elliott Freeman. Your mission is to destroy the Soviet Cyborg that has been threatening to invade Europe. To do this you need to go through levels destroying enemies and super bosses. There is always a huge boss at the end of each of the 12 levels. There are 4 different difficulties that you can choose from. You can also choose from one of 3 planes and change their color. Each of these 3 planes will have its strengths and weaknesses, so choose wisely.
You can steer your plane using either the accelerometer or the touch controls. In touch mode you just drag your plane to the desired location using your finger. In accelerometer mode, tilt your device to move your plane. Your plane will fire automatically. You can also fire your special shot by holding your finger on the screen and then releasing. After using this weapon, you will need to let it recharge. The recharge bar is located in the bottom right corner of the screen. To fire a bomb, all you need to do is tap one of the bomb buttons in the bottom left corner of the screen.
To gain power-ups that give you a better equipment, you must defeat an entire squadron of planes. Once you have done this, a power-up will appear so you can collect it. These power-ups will give you better weapons, more life, reinforcement ships, or even more bombs. Some ships will leave behind a medal when you kill them. By collecting these, you can earn more points as well as extra continues. Every time you lose all 3 of your lives, you will need to use a continue to get 3 more lives and keep playing. For every 100 medals you collect, you will get another continue.
My favorite feature of Siberian Strike is the Multiplayer Mode. This mode allows you to play a Multiplayer campaign. You and one of your friends on the same WiFi Network can help each other through campaigns. The levels that you play Multiplayer on will be the same except that there will be a lot more enemy planes to defeat, as well as harder enemies.
The last game play mode is called Free Mission. This mode allows you to go back and play any of the levels that you have already completed. The levels will be the same in this mode as they are in the original story mode.
Siberian Strike is an awesome game for anyone who likes fast paced airplane games. This game has a great story as well as many cool features. Siberian Strike is definitely a must have game.
Siberian Strike is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
