Default Commander Cool - ipod/iphone



This came out last night. Been looking forward to it, thought it would be a cross between Metal Slug and Mario Land, if anything its a bit more 'mario land' but from what i've seen so far (done about 7 levels) theres a fair bit of variety. Standard levels are horizontal affairs, theres the odd bonus round where its vertical and other levels where the side of the screen is moving so you cant hang about

Well worth the money, another great platformer for iOS

Sprites look like re-color and re-traced metal slug. Does this dev have no artist? there are original artwork available for some minor fees that they can ind online. Meh.

The controls are way, way too stiff and you can't shoot while moving. Resident Evil controls in sidescroller? That's a first. Can't recommend this one just yet. :/

Dont take this the wrong way, but how come you've still got a 2nd gen ? I'm glad youre not some spoilt kid who gets a new gadget every 6 months and perhaps you dont work, but with second hand prices of an ipod touch 3 or even 4 quite low i'm surprised you havent tried to get one for birthday or xmas or save up some money. Just well worth it

Well, my dear friend, I will gladly answer your inquiry!

Actually, I have indeed been saving up money, but I've been waiting on Apple to release a real 5th gen. Don't wanna buy a 4th gen only for a 5th gen to be released soon after. However! If there is no real upgrade this year, I'm just gonna buy whatever comes out.

Looks great I just hope it's not a boring speedrunner... Too many out there, LoE2 was so boring that I removed it...

Fair enough, sorry wasnt being nosey just wondered ! I love my ipod, when i got into iOS gaming i thought i'm going to fill up my 16 gig ipod so i sold that to my sister and went for the 64 gig ! Hope Apple doesnt ignore the ipod touch brigade though, theres new ipads/iphones but no new ipod touch.

Anyway back to the game. I know you cant 'run and shoot' but it works fine the way it works in the game where you automatically stop and shoot. Might be too easy if you could constantly run and fire.

Boring speedrunners are only boring speedrunners if you make them ! I 'completed' League of Evil 2 and in my own good time, i didnt care if i took ages on some levels, my aim was to get to the end of every level regardless of time. Didnt bother with the briefcase either. Thats the good thing with that game (and this one with the gems), various ways to play it, speedrunning (yawn), try and get every item there is or try to just reach the end.
