Best on-rails shooter on iOS?

I'm probably one of the few people that actually liked Rage, except for its short length. But it made me want to get another on-rails shooter for my iPod Touch.

I've been considering Doom Resurrection, but it's currently $6.99 and seems to go on sale fairly often so I'm gonna wait on that one. I've also played Time Crisis.

Are there any other good on-rails shooters on the iOS? As reference, I loved House of the Dead: Overkill on Wii.

Zombie Crisis 3D and Doom Resurrection are definitely the best for me. Zombie Crisis for the arcade style, straight up action and Doom Res for a more complete package, more along the lines of games like the Resident Evil Chronicles games on the Wii, while Zombie Crisis feels more like House of the Dead.

I haven't played the second one yet, but I can also recommend Time Crisis Strike to any fan of the series. It's certainly not the same as using a light gun to take down virtual enemies, but it's still plenty of fun for a portable rail shooter.

I will second Doom Resurrection and Zombie Crisis. Both are fun rail shooters.

I like on-rail shooters, too -- sunk many quarters into HoD 1 and 2. Doom Resurrection is good, and quite a bit longer than Rage. The closest thing to House of the Dead on iOS is Zombie Crisis, which is by no means perfect, but definitely fun.

Thanks for the feedback. Played the lite version of Zombie Crisis. It's fun, but think I've been spoiled by Rage. Still might pick it up while it's $.99 and will look out for a sale on Doom Resurrection.

Rage is essential a redo of Doom in a different setting, so you should be happy with Doom for $6.99. It's quite a bit longer too.

Time Crisis 2Nd Strike

Time Crisis 2ND Strike! Best Rail shooter on the app store. I played Time Crisis 4 at the arcade for the first time yesterday and Time Crisis 2nd Strike is the best port to the idevices. I know the $7 dollar price tag is a turn off to many. But the gameplay is awesome and much better than the first one. Controls are great.

Anyone know of any similar rail shooters that are on the app store like this? Any new and upcoming rail shooter games on the horizon?
