Firefighters

Any thoughts on this game firefighters (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=299507148&mt=8)

It looks fun, and it's only .99c anyone have it? Give me some reviews. Only 3 reviews on the app, all pretty shallow.

Well not it has 5 reviews and it's getting high marks. Who wants to dive in?

I tried it. I don't recommend.

It's an ok game, and looks like it was a port of a mobile game. But the virtual dpad isn't great and you have to tap on the screen to do things and it's rather small. You run up the building and put out fires and save civillians. There are a lot better games out there.

Have to agree with arn...

The game is small -- and for an old guy like me I had to strain just to read the instructions, which didn't explain a lot anyway. The controls are a bit off so that got frustrating quickly as well.

All in all, he said it best when he said that it seemed like a mobile port. And I'll add that it's not much of one. I must have been in a real impulse mood when I decided to try it out...

Now none of you have too...
