Worms, Resident Evil, Brothers In Arms or something else?

Going away on holiday tomorrow and need something to keep me entertained during the flight.

Worms - Been a fan of Worms but with the mixed reviews I'm still on the fence

Resident Evil - Same as above, and also concerned about the length of it, I've heard it's quite short.

Brothers In Arms - Good reviews but very short campaign


I'm also semi-new to the app store but I'm looking for action/adventure games, y'know, like BiA. If you guys know of any otehr worthwhile, polished apps like that, let me know

Thanks

Well I enjoyed BIA ALOT. I got it when the appstore first opened and im still playing it. Resident Evil is also another great and it's one of the best games in the store. I like Worms games but I heard that it was kind of a crappy port and it didn't have any multiplayer as of now. I definetly suggest going with BIA or Resident Evil. A few other purchases worth the money:

tna Wrestling - Best turn based RPG game in the appstore. Kind of like the flash game Sonny where you battle then talk then battle.

Zenonia - tons of gameplay for a decent price. Good gameplay too. I don't think I need to say any more.

Terminator Salvation - A good shooter running on the same engine as Brothers in Arms, just it seems to have a few less features as far as I've played. i didn't see any way to change the weapon or reload manually, but still a load of fun.

Wolfenstein 3d (Not to be confused with Wolfenstein RPG. Stupid EA) - Awesome old school shooter with updated graphics, sound, and great controls. Surprisingly addicting.

Puzzle Quest - Best match 3 in the store. Combines Match 3 and RPG elements to make a really addicting game. If you're unsure there's a lite version.

Zombieville - Addicting side scrolling survival shooter. Loads of fun and really addicting.

Mecho Wars - Best turn based strategy on the iPhone hands-down. Almost exactly like Advance Wars but with a little less depth.

Iron Sight - Worms/iShoot in 3d. I dont think I need say much more.

And if you have jailbroken it get snes4iphone and ScummVm. Snes had the best RPG's and ScummVM games are extremely addicting. If you dont have a jailbroken device you can get Flight of the Amazon Queen in the appstore which uses ScummVM. It's not as good as games like Monkey Island but its still alot of fun.

Hi! You copy my name jkjk Anyways BIA you can't go wrong with it. I bought it and it's fun but the only thing wrong with it is that it's really short but it's quite entertaining so get that. Also before you buy Worms try Starhog lite. If you like it then I suggest you buy starhog instead of worms.

Lol dude I didn't know you even had that name. I got on the forums the day after I signed up or so and I see your name and i'm like "CRAP!"

But either way I completely agree that BIA was awesome but the thing that I disagree with is it isn't short to me at least. I got it when it first came out and I'm still stuck in the second campaign.

Oh yeah good purchases with Zenonia and Wolf3d

Yeah, I've heard BiA is really short so I'll only get it if it drops to 99c/59p

Like I said I don't find it to be that short. I'm still stuck in it so it's definetly going to keep you going back. Plus there's 3 difficulties and plenty of achievements to get so there's always reason to go back.

Resident Evil sucks.
Wait for Resident Evil 4.
BTW BiA is fairly long and when you finish the game you get a new weapon that you can play with.
BIA isnt gonna become a dollar.
Brain Challenge is still 5 dollars so ya
