Annihilator now free!

If you like Star Warfare, you will love this game. I actually think it's funner than Star Warfare cause the monsters are bigger and more diverse. I don't have any idea how the multiplayer is, but I recommend this title. Today, I am putting up 5 threads, and all the games are first rate. A good day for free and sale apps for sure.

So if you like first person shooters, give this game a try!

If someone could link this for me, I would appreciate it.

Thanks to the kind ninjackid for linking it!

I'll try anything so I gave this a shot. Sorry, but I wouldn't bother DLing this. Permanent ad banner; looks like a 1990's open source shooter with nothing but you, a vast empty space, and some generic baddies, no GC or multiplayer as far as I could see.

Star Warfare this ain't.

If wifi and cellular are off, then there are no ads. I have a policy to not post games with ads unless they are totally awesome, so sorry about that. I didn't realize it because I usually set my wifi to off on my ipad to get longer battery life.

Also, I am not really a fan of first person shooters, so I can understand why you might not like this game especially cause it does not have multiplayer. I'm almost the other kind of player cause I suck at multiplayer and get killed every 2 seconds, so I usually play Fps, single player only.

This game has fewer monsters than star warfare, but to me is kind of fun.

But one thing I noticed is that, after trying to load it on my iphone, on my iphone it isn't that good of a game.

But on my new ipad it looks much better, and is fun.

Anyway, take this game for what it is worth. But for ipad owners, I do think it is fun for a short time.

Quick impressions:

I played through like 3 waves, so really quick thoughts. This actually isn't as bad as I expected from the screenshots. Graphics are meh, so is sound, but it controls pretty well (surprisingly). There' two modes, defense and survival where you face endless onslaughts of baddies and upgrades your weapons and such.

Like I said, definitely not a bad freebie. I'm really curious to see how the Bluetooth multiplayer works out. I told my friend to download it, so when I get a chance to play a game with him, I'll come back with my thoughts.

EDIT: Oh yeah, ads. I played with my wifi off, so I didn't see the ads... lol.
