There's only so much you can do with a side scrolling shooter,
especially on an iPhone or iPad but developers Digital Reality have
really pushed this genre on the iOS platform.
Even the gameplay has been fined tuned on these devices and to
compliment the beautiful graphics, there's actually a decent storyline
hiding behind this shooter. The characters speaking in Hungarian just
add to the delightful nature of this very entertaining shooter.
these games had their day on the classic 8-bit and 16-bit consoles but
Digital Reality have successfully transported this genre to the iOS and
best of all, the controls work flawlessly on these devices.
ships flies through the air, you have access to a variety of weapons and
some truly epic boss battles that takes the player to a whole new plane
of excitement. The controls have been well mapped on the screen and the
accuracy is quite unparalleled.
I love all
the bonuses and the ability to upgrade your weapons in the game which is
really needed when you fight those gigantic boss battles or when the
enemies come in waves upon waves. Even though you do have limited
ammunition, you fortunately have some shields that prevents iOS rage and
the cloaking ability did come in handy.
highlight is your time ability which assists you in getting through
difficult stages as it slows down time. Both shields and time is however
limited. The only drawback to the game is that it's relatively short but
it does offer a few modes of play that include Story, Arcade, Score
Attack and Boss Training. That's pretty damn impressive for an iOS game.
this is easily the best looking game that I have seen on the iOS,
however I do recommend you play this game on an iPad opposed to the
iPhone. The iPhone screen is just a little too small for this game and
you do lose some of the attention to detail. When you play the game on
an iPad, the game takes on a new meaning and looks spectacular, almost
like a painting come to life and I loved the faux 2.5D atmosphere which
creates this interesting layer system.
equally impressive and even though the game is in Hungarian, the voice
actors should be commended on their realistic tones. Sound effects are
great as is the musical score that is quite pumping. The soundtrack is
actually created by Akira Yamaoka from Silent Hill fame and his style
really lends itself well to this iOS title with the techno score. This
is one game you want to listen to with your headphones.
Sine Mora is
a game that you should go out and buy now and as the translation of Sine
Mora is without delay (it's Greek), it actually suits this title
perfectly from its epic battles, lush graphics and almost flawless
gameplay. Who would have thought that a game inspired by the classic
8-bit side scrolling genre can still find a place in the 21st century of
