Gothic Horror Side Scrolling Shooter 'Van Pershing - The Showdown' > Free

iOS App Store Dinosaurus Alarm!!!

A whopping 20+ MB download. System requirements: iOS 3.0!

Well—here you have once more the proof that antique software runs fine even on newest iDevices! Tested on iPad Pro (9.7"+12.9") under the newest iOS version. Don't expect hightech graphics, but it runs smooth and fine and offers a blast of fun. Full premium. When the app was updated the last time there didn't exist "in-app purchases" nor video ads afair. Not too easy (as all of the games in this series). There are even footpaths of the Game-Center-predecessor OpenFeint (simply ignore).

Okay… Highly recommended! Simply because it's a genuine and authentic retro software—a pretty rare thing in these days. Coders may see it even as an educational app.

Now free! For some hours only, according to the previous sale in… wait: 2012 (Anno Domini MMXII). Believe it or not.

Have a look into other games of this series:

Van Pershing HD (iPad). No jumps, and a very small ad banner in the menue screen only (you can even tap it away).


Atomic Galactic Rider – Van Pershing in Space (Universal). Since four weeks "free" sale. Have some entertaining grinding with flappy-style controls and chance/luck elements. Offers "in-app purchases" (for real money), optional shortcuts obviously. Very recommended!
