Default Earth Day - Chillingo Action Arcade Game

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=305987638&mt=8

This looks like it could be a fun little game. Really digging the nice bright colors on this one. Only a $1 and there is no ending. This might be a good one for High Score competitions.

Anyone have any thoughts on the game?

Yep, Dungeon & Hero is a really good RPG. I am really enjoying it so far.

BTW, I can't find this earth day game in the itunes store. That's the title right? Earth Day? I don't see it under the developer's name even.

This is a port of a game from eSoft Interactive. I'll post some thoughts on the iPhone version here in a bit (it just got done syncing), but the Pocket PC version is probably my favorite eSoft game. As far as other Chillingo published iPhone games, Sneezies is awesome, The Quest rocks, Totem is pretty decent, a lot of people speak highly of Orions (though I haven't gotten into the iPhone version yet), Vector Tanks is interesting, and as far as games I've tried on other platforms but haven't had the chance on iPhone yet, Plumber Pete, Pocket Mini Golf 2 and Krypton Egg are all good games.

My initial impression is that I'm not sure I like it quite as well as the Pocket PC version. The main reason for that, I think, is the controls. You can either play with tilt control or by using the left and right halves of the screen to rotate the earth. The tilt control as too imprecise in my opinion, especially when it came to trying to hit the power ups. However, for as much as I've been able to get used to the controls so far, it is pretty fun. It definitely gets more intense as you progress, even potentially to iDracula levels if you last long enough. If I recall correctly I made it somewhere between 15 to 20 minutes on the Pocket PC version one time. The graphics are decent, but what's really cool is that as time passes your earth changes from an organic wonderland to a cool techno looking planet. Other than the control issue, I think my biggest gripe is something that carries over from the Pocket PC version, and that's the fact that the power ups are very difficult to hit. Overall, though, you're not going to go wrong with this one for 99 cents.

I really liked Earth Day on the PocketPC, and I enjoyed porting it to the PalmOS. Seeing it on the iPhone is great! I hope the team porting eSoft's games to the iPhone keep the quality high.

Nice to see you here PointOfLight! I remember you from the eSoft forums.

Will be keeping this one on my watch list. Looks solid, but I'm worried about the controls.
