Released Jan 9, 2009
Seller: Xen Games Ltd
Price: $4.99 [Buy]

In addition to some 2D space shooters which have made news, a 3D space shooter has finally hit the App Store.

A stunning space shooter set over a wide range of environments, Rebel Onslaught features advanced 3D graphics, a variety of enemies and weapons, and exhilarating fast paced combat.

The game – as usual – is controlled with the accelerometer, and also has an option for touch controls. Using the accelerometer, you dodge incoming fire and destroy enemies in a wide range of environments. By default, you continuously shoot blue laser blasts, and can optionally use Rebel Onslaughtlimited-ammo homing missiles and bombs in the middle of a level.

The game has not met expectations and has a few significant drawbacks which lower the value of the game. First of all, the game is as hard as hell! And it’s hard in frustrating, not challenging (like Space Ninja). And, after getting past a few levels, if you lose all your lives, you have to start all over again! Secondly, even though each level features a different environment, each level is itself very long and you get bored with the same environment before you finish half of the level.

The game is an utter failure. Its another attempt to establish a good 3D game for the iPhone. But, till now, there has been no completely superb 3D game for the iPhone yet. I totally recommend against this game.

Controls: 7/10
Graphics: 8/10
Sound: 6/10
Gameplay: 3/10
Value for money: 3/10
