Robot Wars 3D ($0.99)

iTunes Link

It looks pretty good and is a "2 player FPS". It only has split screen 2 player though so there is no online multiplayer.




Quote:
A 2-player FPS on a single device? You guessed it. Challenge a friend to this 2-player robotic battle that runs on a Single iPhone/iTouch device!! No WiFi, 3G, or secondary device required, so you can take your battle with a friend anywhere.

In Robot Wars 3D, you and a friend each command your own robotic gear and screen in 3D first-person view. Reminiscent of a paintball or laser tag match, your mission is to destroy your opponent's machinery before they get to you. Navigate, hide, explore, and battle away in real-time amidst a beautifully rendered realistic 3D environment that will keep you on the edge of your seats.

CONTROLS:
Use the left-analog controller to move your robot in all 8 directions. Move forward, backward, strafe left, strafe-right, or go diagonally. While at it, use the right-analog to turn and explore at your surroundings in full 360 degrees. Watch for your friend's robot as he/she approaches from a distance and examine their moves. Aim and fire to watch things explode, or hide behind the crates and engage them up-close.

INTERACT:
With real-world physics, interact with objects in your surroundings as you would in real-life. Blast down barrels and watch them topple and roll over. Climb up ramps and hop over walls to reach unexplored areas. Collect power-ups and items to enhance your gear. At all cost, keep your friend's gear in check. They could very well be hiding somewhere above or behind.

FEATURES:
- 2-Player split screen action.
- Realistic 3D environment with real-world physics and explosions.
- First-person shooter controls.
- Fire and Jump abilities.
- Health and life meter.
- Collectible power-ups and health packs.

COMING SOON:
- More levels and features
Is it just a tech demo though?

Very tech demo ish. Frame rate is terrible, probably due to the mutiplayer nature. Love the idea though.

Simpler retrographics like lightbike could help things.

I second this. There is potential. But at the moment it's a demo.
