Alien Abuse

So Alien Abuse just came out. It looks sort of Castlevania-ish. Anybody try it out yet?

ALIEN ABUSE

Description:
Alien Abuse is a 2d side-scrolling platform shooter for iPhone and iPod.

You have been falsely incarcerated in a prison where illegal experiments are taking place.

A prison riot occurs and the experiment goes horribly wrong.

The people inside the prison, except you who seems to be immune, get infected with substance called Abuse that transforms them into aliens mutants. You takes a laser gun and goes on to single-handedly destroy all mutants, stop the substance from spreading further, and escape from the prison complex.

Well, I'd love a Castlevania type game on my iPod. This looked like it was along the same style, but obviously with Aliens..

You took the words out of my mouth with the Metroid comparison! These are the same people who gave us Bomber Online, I think.

The video looks promising. I think I'll try it out for $.99. I'll post my thoughts later.

I got it. I like it. The controls aren't the best. Moving and aiming use the same directional arrows so you can't do one without the other. And you may already know how I feel about onscreen buttons.

Ok, I'll admit that I chuckled a bit when I read the name of this game but it looks pretty good. Definitely looks like a pretty cool side-scroller.
