WiFi Warfare - (Now $.99)

Figured I'd make a new thread because others may not visit the main one to hear about the sale.
[iTunes] - $2.99 -> Free

Quote:
Due to huge response and limited servers - WiFi Warfare is FREE for today only. A demo version will be released within the next few weeks.

----------------------------------
NOW FEATURING INTERNET PLAY
----------------------------------

WiFi Warfare is a 2D multiplayer game for the iPhone & iPod Touch, allowing 2 or more devices to engage in combat over local wifi and internet. The current version equips players with 5 types of weapon, 2 types of grenade, and 3 rotating maps. Player control includes left, right, jump, crouch, hover, and independent aim using the accelerometer (with vertical calibration).

Additional game modes are in development as well as new maps and dedicated internet servers. Keep an eye on wifiwar.com for updates and send-in your feature requests. It is a goal to keep this game evolving with user feedback.

REMINDER: This is a multiplayer game! It takes two or more devices to play, either on the same home network or over the internet.


GAMEPLAY MODES:
---------------
- Deathmatch
- Zones


CONTROLS:
---------
- Tilt device to move crosshair, use screen buttons to move player

What's new

Crosshair Offset

---------------
Flip the Y axis if desired

Player Names
----------
The server will use the device's name as the player name. This name will be displayed on the scoreboard.

Adding 3 additional servers for internet multiplayer.

Additional game mode - (Zones)

A flashing zone around the map every 45 seconds. First player to stay within the zone for 2 minutes wins.

------------
Sniper rifle displays a complete bullet trail when fired. Bullet moves instantly across screen.

---------------------
Grenade launcher power and speed increased.

Map Items & Limited Ammo
---------------------

I hate the controls in this game, accelerometer aim = fail.

Just downloaded it. It i actually pretty good. It's a bit like counter strike in 2D - the closest the idevice will get to it for a while. The gameplay is smooth even with lots of players playing at once. The controls take a bit of getting used to though. It would be nice if there were some different control schemes. I would definately say it is worth it for the price - free!

That's true, but I still don't like tilting it every which way to aim. Maybe I'll get used to it though.

Does anyone know how to change weapons? I keep on picking up loads of good weapons, but I don't know how to use them, lol. I am 'Luke's iPhone', so look out for me. It is actually quite strange as the name you have on multiplayer is the name you called your iDevice. I though I was strange in calling my iPhone 'Luke's iPhone' but know I see other people do it and I don't feel so strange. Some people have really random names though, lol.

This needs better graphics. I don't like the looks at all.
