Get wet in RUNOFF, our new map that features both land and water elements. Gain elevation in this vertically stacked map to snipe at players below – or dive into the water to escape fire and snag powerups. Runoff is great for gravity gunning, jumping, sniping, and swimming.

DUALCANNON PROTOTYPE

The DualCannon packs two powerful blasts dealt in quick succession. More damage per plasma node than its Plasma Cannon cousin, but it takes longer to reload.

Eliminate Community Day

***kmacleod's impressions***

Shooting and aiming are the two most important parts of any FPS, and I'm happy to say that Eliminate handles them flawlessly. All control modes feel natural, and the whole thing is very easy to pick up and play.

"After playing the game for about an hour, I'm absolutely convinced that the game is going to be one of the flagship games for the iPhone, in terms of success and in terms of quality, and I'll be buying it the second it goes on sale."

Gamer Tag Radio Episode #211 -- Eliminate


Thunderbolt Games

"After sitting down and playing Eliminate, I can say without hesitation that these are the best FPS controls seen on this platform yet."

"Perhaps the most impressive thing, beyond the fluid controls, was the graphics engine. There’s nothing like this running on the iPhone/iTouch right now."

Thunderbolt Games

Sarcastic Gamer

"I was astonished by how natural the controls felt. It was my first experience with an iPhone/iPod touch game, but I managed to acclimate without much difficulty."

"The small maps facilitate close-quarters combat, ensuring constant engagement and tense shootouts. Environmental hazards add to the action, forcing players to mind their surroundings, while also fending off enemies. One moment you’re chasing an adversary; the next you’re a red smudge, courtesy of a horizontal wall press."

Sarcastic Gamer

Gearheads of War

"The game overall is something that is fun and very addicting to play with your friends or against the world."

"After playing for about a half hour I was starting to do very well with getting some double kills and using the power ups to my advantage. I was quickly creating enemies and going around trying to hunt down some of the other players that were kicking my butt."

Gearheads of War

Gearlive

"ELIMINATE offers an amazing online FPS mobile experience. Simple controls and interfaces allow you to pick up your device and start playing anywhere, while giving you a satisfactory gaming experience...for a game running on an iPhone or iPod touch over 3G or Wi-Fi, it’s pretty darn solid. "

App.Tapper

Gaming Nexus

"This ambitious new title is an FPS entitled Eliminate, and after getting some serious hands on time with the game I can say that as soon as the game releases I will finally have something other than tower defense games on my iPod Touch. A lot of things can be done with a touch screen, but one genre I could never imagine being well implemented on that type of interface was the first person shooter. Until now. "

"The weapons are one of Eliminate’s strongest features, because they look and feel great to use. There’s a large variety in the weapon selection as well, varying between laser guns, assault rifles, and rocket launchers to the more imaginative plasma cannons and gravity hooks."

I can still remember the day this came out... All the hype... All the fun and now it will be lost forever. RIP Eliminate. You took up our time well.

This is the game that made me stop liking ngmoco. I just find it funny that people actually spent money on this and what will they have to prove for it?

If anyone in toucharcade follows my forums post, you would know that I loved Eliminate. I wanted it from the initial announcement, I waited up to download it and I played the hell out of it. I kicked a$$ in this game and I loved the controls. They were perfect and to this day... The best fps control scheme on iOS.

ngmoco lead the way in taking the iPhone seriously as a gaming console.

After all the praise, I'm truly disappointed at ngmoco as a company. The founders really took the money and ran. True entrepreneurs. I feel as if their intent wasn't bringing console quality games for iOS, it was just making money period and they saw an opportunity. I'm not hating, just disappointed.

I issue a challenge, or a call to game developers. iOS is the next generation console. Give gamers high quality games, gamers will pay you. No gimics, no get rich quick schemes, no angry birds clones. Give us console quality story based games. Give us memorable characters like we experienced as kids such as Mario, Sonic and Bonk. Give us music that stirs emotion. Graphics that make us wonder how this is possible on a phone.

Apple provided the tools and hardware for a gaming revolution. Make art, make games, make history. The next gen console was introduced in 2006 with the original iPhone. It flipped the cellphone market on its head. It made industry giants like Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo rethink there strategy because they are losing market share.

Looking back at this post, I could have ended it after the first sentence.
I guess I just want to say, take the iOS seriously. It's the gaming console of the future. Make your games universal. Innovate or get left behind.

It's sad to see this go. I wish that I had gotten in to it earlier (I got it around October of 2010), because then I would've been able to enjoy it more, I guess. Be with the hype and all that... goodbye, Eliminate.

All the fun memories lost forever. We had a good run people, although most of us left when the glitches starting coming out the woodwork, all in all it was money well spent. I will forever hold a place in my heart for eliminate. Btw PVP, if your still alive, Alucard, Terrorist, Ccperr, and the rest of us would love to hear from you. Hit me up for details.

I can remember when it came out. Nice game during that time. However it was the first title which got me an undestanding of freemium and why I hated - this specific - model. Notbeeing ableto earn XP after playing for five minutes... Deleted it after 3 days. Still, it's the first game / server going down. "Good Bye".

I got this game at one point, but I did not really like it. It's too bad that it has to go still.

Favorite games:

League of Evil 2, Rocket Bits, Super Crate Box, Retro Racing, INC, Choco Run, Swordigo.

I still remember being at university watching the announcement trailers on youtube, wow.

A shame to see it go but it's had a good run, just a shame it's going because the devs are fecked basically.
