3D World

So I downloaded this new game called 3D World cause its only $0.99 (plus sales tax). It a entertainment game and it's built using the Unity game engine. It looks very similar to paper pilot for those that have it. I think what is unique about this game is that it lets you explore an abandoned warehouse with great lighting effects and outstanding visuals. To me this is more of a tech demo of where the iphone unity engine will be taking games and hopefully FPS in 2009.

It runs very smooth and no frame rate hiccups that I can notice and I've been messing around with it for 15 mins

I will say that the touch controls are implemented great with two analog sticks and the ability to tap anywhere on screen.

What "hidden mysteries" are there?

Looks interesting, but is there any substance or longevity to it?

I've only been messing around with it for 20 mins or so, but the entertainment game seems pretty large. I haven't really seen if anything can be picked-up or if you can minipulate(spelled wrong) the environment your in. However, the character is affected if he/she walks into a pillar in rooms it slows the speed down of moving until you clear it (hope that makes sense).

So its just simply exploration? How interesting or detailed is the enviornment, it sounds interesting...

Certainly looks great - would love to see some proper games use that engine.
