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."

Live Roundtable with the ngmofos -- GamerTagRadio

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."

I guess the crazy people spending $30 bucks on boxes of energy make up for the people not spending a dime... Its like their picking up the bill, lol let them, its called natural selection. Upgrading is just a gimmick; you still play for free!

Anyone what the hell does TS do? Increase damage? I just got the sniper, but the guy dies so fast its pissing me off.

It's not really aim assist, it shoots automatically for you.

And Ngmoco is brilliant... people can't help but spend money on this stuff. You're just jealous you didn't think of it first.
Yea I'm jealous that my company didn't think of a way to nickel and dime customers with a generic FPS and Dog game.

Oh wait I don't have a game company and I just play games..

Excuse my ignorance, but i just got the game yesterday and still figuring a few things out. How do the power cells work? Do they recharge or do you have to buy more or what? What do they do other than allow you to get more energy? What happens if you run out of power cells?

I finally got my award for being in the top 10! I'll never make 1st place though, so I won't aim for that.
Gotta get that award myself - it isn't going to be easy to make it to the top 10!

Which do you want? Tons of high quality games in different genres with tons of play time, or a few hours of energized Eliminate where you earn a few thousand credits?

I would choose the games. But that's just me. I'm a complete cheapo. I'm fine with the free content of Eliminate. Asphalt 5 and TouchPets pass the time in between charges. (And having a life where I'm not *always* sitting at the computer )

Anyways, which should I get once I have enough credits? Antimatter gun (500 credits) or Rocket Launcher (450)?
Well it's good because I'll get way more than 30 dollars of amusement out of being able to level up for the amount of time that 30 dollars of power cells buys.

Different people assign different value to their leisure time activities. I'm in a good enough position in life that I can afford to spend 30 dollars on a game that I like. I've spent more than before that on games that are not nearly as great as Eliminate without even blinking an eye. For whatever reason, the iPhone has become a platform that people are unwilling to pay prices that would be considered perfectly reasonable on any other system, and as a result, many (in fact most) games lack the type of polish, quality, and feature sets that you find on consoles where developers can spend enough money on development to deliver a superior product.

Ngmoco has managed to create one of the best and most polished games on the iPhone, and they're giving it away completely for free to those who are unwilling or unable to pay for the optional energy packs. I am willing and able to pay for them, and I believe that hard work and a quality product deserves compensation, so I will pay

As for the weapons, I'm not really a fan of either of them. Give me the classic assault rifle any day

I dont get the people flipping out about prices. Honestly, buy the $10 pack, and you will never have to put more money into this game. Non-energized matches are JUST as fun as energized matches, its all in your mind. Use the power cells to upgrade, nothing else. I probably play 3-5 energized matches a day, but tons more that are not energized.

The Anti-Matter Jet is a waste of credits, some people seem to like the Rocket Launcher for cheap kills but its downfall is most of the time you'll be reloading.

It annoys me how some people like to generalize others if they spend some extra $$ on a given feature of a game with comments like "have no life......sit at PC all day....weigh 500lbs......have bacne...etc..."

I had auto-shoot on in the Canadian version, but when I re-downloaded it, it was turned off and I left it like that. I like having to shoot myself.
