Amoebattle 

 

Amoebattle is being billed as the first RTS on the iOS platform. Not sure what an RTS is? That stands for Real Time Strategy. Players take a group of amoebas on a quest of exploration. That exploration involves destroying these other amoebas and analyzing their DNA. When you have killed enough of them off then you can start to use them on your side.

Different levels in Amoebattle allow players to use different microscopic creatures. The violence in Amoebattle is toned down from most other RTS games. In Amoebattle we have the little critters hack and slash at one another. We can replicate them to put the odds solely in our favor. Smart gamers like to go into battle with the odds on their side.

The biggest downer in Amoebattle is the religious indoctrination into evolution. The WMG does not comprehend why that had to be included. It is something a super majority of the families in the United States do not believe in. That is the one real black eye this app has. Even though Amoebattle is on the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad it feels like a Nintendo DS title.

The graphics are bright and cheery in Amoebattle. The creatures hack at one another, and shoot little things as well. Once the life bar is depleted they pop out of existence. Players can re-populate if their creatures are fed well enough. The music in Amoebattle is phenomenal. There are little sound bytes used at the right moments. Players are given written directions on how to progress.

The price on the app store for Amoebattle is currently $4.99. Which is steep for an app. The levels in Amoebattle are long, and very engaging. In some ways this does not feel like a hand held title, but something that could appear on the home consoles. The challenge of Amoebattle will encourage hardcore gamers to replaying levels they failed at.

The controls in Amoebattle are very simple to pick up and learn. Amoebattle offers tutorials but does not force them upon us. This innovation is something Family Friendly Gaming has clamored for - for years now. Amoebattle does so many things right. It also expands our minds on what is possible on the iPhone/iPod Touch platform.
