Get wet in RUNOFF, our new map that features both land and water elements. Gain elevation in this vertically stacked map to snipe at players below – or dive into the water to escape fire and snag powerups. Runoff is great for gravity gunning, jumping, sniping, and swimming.

DUALCANNON PROTOTYPE

The DualCannon packs two powerful blasts dealt in quick succession. More damage per plasma node than its Plasma Cannon cousin, but it takes longer to reload.

Eliminate Community Day

***kmacleod's impressions***

Shooting and aiming are the two most important parts of any FPS, and I'm happy to say that Eliminate handles them flawlessly. All control modes feel natural, and the whole thing is very easy to pick up and play.

"After playing the game for about an hour, I'm absolutely convinced that the game is going to be one of the flagship games for the iPhone, in terms of success and in terms of quality, and I'll be buying it the second it goes on sale."

Gamer Tag Radio Episode #211 -- Eliminate


Thunderbolt Games

"After sitting down and playing Eliminate, I can say without hesitation that these are the best FPS controls seen on this platform yet."

"Perhaps the most impressive thing, beyond the fluid controls, was the graphics engine. There’s nothing like this running on the iPhone/iTouch right now."

Thunderbolt Games

Sarcastic Gamer

"I was astonished by how natural the controls felt. It was my first experience with an iPhone/iPod touch game, but I managed to acclimate without much difficulty."

"The small maps facilitate close-quarters combat, ensuring constant engagement and tense shootouts. Environmental hazards add to the action, forcing players to mind their surroundings, while also fending off enemies. One moment you’re chasing an adversary; the next you’re a red smudge, courtesy of a horizontal wall press."

Sarcastic Gamer

Gearheads of War

"The game overall is something that is fun and very addicting to play with your friends or against the world."

"After playing for about a half hour I was starting to do very well with getting some double kills and using the power ups to my advantage. I was quickly creating enemies and going around trying to hunt down some of the other players that were kicking my butt."

Gearheads of War

Gearlive

"ELIMINATE offers an amazing online FPS mobile experience. Simple controls and interfaces allow you to pick up your device and start playing anywhere, while giving you a satisfactory gaming experience...for a game running on an iPhone or iPod touch over 3G or Wi-Fi, it’s pretty darn solid. "

App.Tapper

Gaming Nexus

"This ambitious new title is an FPS entitled Eliminate, and after getting some serious hands on time with the game I can say that as soon as the game releases I will finally have something other than tower defense games on my iPod Touch. A lot of things can be done with a touch screen, but one genre I could never imagine being well implemented on that type of interface was the first person shooter. Until now. "

"The weapons are one of Eliminate’s strongest features, because they look and feel great to use. There’s a large variety in the weapon selection as well, varying between laser guns, assault rifles, and rocket launchers to the more imaginative plasma cannons and gravity hooks."

Was ranked 3rd in the world at one point, but in the end ngmoco totally butchered this, along with the rest of their games.

Nevertheless there were a lot of good times the first few months this game came out. Lots of drama, clans, and a whole community was formed around this game, and every section of TA was dominated by Eliminate posts. Too bad ngmoco decided to bring out so many "balance" changes that they broke their own game.

RIP my $10 worth of unused power cells.

the fun ends here

First of all, sorry for necroing old game threads, but I'm having a little nostalgia trip.

Anyway, Eliminate pro is sometimes still mentioned in some FPS threads when controls are being discussed as having one of the best, if not the best control schemes in a FPS on a touch device, and rightfully so. This post is for people who haven't played Eliminate, but want to at least have some knowledge when "Eliminate pro controls" are mentioned in other game threads.

I ripped this video from the Eliminate pro install files, because I couldn't find it on youtube and I didn't want it to be lost forever.

Some of the controls aren't demonstrated in the video, so I would just like to describe those as well.

Tap the crosshair to zoom (scope). Tap again to unzoom.
Double tap the reload button to switch to the secondary weapon.
Shake the phone to loot when over a body. This might seem like an odd mechanic, but it was pretty fantastic. You weren't required to loot credits from other players, it was completely optional. You could get a ton of credits from looting, but it was also very, very risky. Before looting you had to make sure nobody else was around you and while shaking the phone all you could do is hope that you wouldn't be dead by the time you stop looting. *Shake* *Quick look* *Shake* *Quick look* *Shake* *Quick look*... This mechanic added a lot of tension to the game, if you decided to make use of it.

As you can see the GUI was very minimal, when idle, it only displayed the crosshair, the reload icon and the directional pad (and even the last one could be hidden in options). But even with that minimal GUI you could walk/look/jump/loot/zoom/reload/switch weapon/burst fire/repeat fire/pause etc.

Information like ammo/health/kills/power-up cooldowns was only displayed when it actually mattered.

GUI comparison:

Idle:


In combat:



I know that you can't really experience the controls just from this post, because you would have to try to play the game yourself. I just think that we can all agree that Eliminate's controls were way ahead of its time.
