App description: Dark Raider is a remake of the classic Atari/Amiga game, Time Bandit. Explore a fantasy world full of castles, tombs, pyramids, arenas, mazes and forests. Unlike other twin stick shooter games, Dark Raider features fully interactive environments with puzzles, and large levels with secret areas.

Dark Raider (3G)S is a specially enhanced version of Dark Raider which takes advantage of your new iPhone 3GS's and iPhone 4 graphics capabilities.

NOTE: THIS VERSION REQUIRES AN IPHONE 4, IPHONE 3GS OR THE NEW IPOD TOUCH 3RD GEN WITH 32 or 64 GB. For older phones and ipod touches, get the regular version from the App store.

I see a lot of people rating this low because they don't read the requirements!

The game uses high dynamic range, deferred rendering with unlimited number of dynamic lights, and per pixel lighting using normal maps. These are effects normally only found in console and PC games.... but IT'S RUNNING ON YOUR PHONE at over 30 fps!

Dark Raider 3GS has the most detailed and impressive graphics of any iPhone game to date, and is the best way to show off your phone and make your friends drool!

Unlock cheats by finishing the game on different difficulty levels. Cheats include faster shotgun, free weapons, and god mode.

16-20 hours of gameplay
3 difficulty levels
25 minutes of mood setting music
3D immersive sound
Amazing dynamic lighting. Light torches to see better in the dungeons.
360 degree movement and twin stick aiming.
Unlock new areas and level up your hero!
Variety of weapons including pistol, shotguns, grenades, rocket launcher, flame thrower, fireballs, blades.
Avoid fireballs, blades, and spike traps, and crush enemies with sliding blocks.
Nonlinear gameplay lets you pick which locations you want to play first.
Explore a fantasy world full of Castles, Tombs, Pyramids, Arenas, Mazes and Forests.
64 progressively difficult levels spread across 8 unique locations.
Your goal is to collect keys and treasures while defending yourself from the neverending hordes of Ancient keepers. Find the exit and make it out alive to advance.
The more you play, the bigger and badder the world gets!
Combination of environmental puzzles and combat, with emphasis on combat

Pick your style! Each method provides a unique gameplay experience....
Accelerometer - plays like a first person shooter

Are there any new graphics? The update only says:

- New pistol sound
- Changed enemy sprites
- Fixed player warping into never never land when a background process takes too much time
- Changed main sign text on map level for clearer objectives
- Slightly increased enemy speed

I played the original, i didnt like how after you beat a level and go back to it, its the same level rotated with a few extra rooms. It made the whole process feel tedious and long. I liked it in the beginning but after a while it gets old.

I played just one level. The lighting is very impressive. If you want to enjoy the 3GS new features this is the best title so far.
