Resident Evil but not: Zombie Infection (iPhone)

Mar 16 // Dale North
A corrupt South African group is controlling the country's resources, becoming a sort of shady dictatorship. People are starving, riots are starting, and things are going south. Freedom Fighters are hired to restore peace to the country, but they end up killing people. You play as Anderson, a war correspondent camera man. He is looking to find his lost brother in South Africa. Starting out, a helicopter flew me over barren wastelands and shanties and dropped me into the action. I jumped off a corrugated metal rooftop and pulled my gun out its holster to -- you'll never guess -- shoot a zombie. Zombie Infection is a third-person zombie shooter, just like Resident Evil Pick A Number. The control is exactly as you'd expect: virtual d-pad, touch-and-drag to move camera, fire/reload buttons, and so on. You'll manage limited ammo and health restorers while exploring creepy locales where evil is clearly resident. Used to shaking your controller when a zombie gets ahold of you? No worries, as you can also shake your iPhone to push them off. Your guns (rifle, shotgun, grenade launcher) all feature a laser sight to help you get that headshot in.  Just like in the game obviously that inspired it, Zombie Infection has you fending off hordes of infected beings, including humans and animals. Enemies are tied to the locales. The zoo has zombified animals and zookeepers. The hospital? Zombie doctors and nurses, of course. The Lab has zombie scientists. My favorite was a zombie crocodile that popped out of the water, Jaws style. In my demo I worked my way through a village and shot zombies in the head. I carefully inspected a dock area and got my head bit off by an alligator. In the zoo I found myself caught in a pit going up against angry zombie lions. Finally, Iworked my way into a dark mining cave where I had to man a turret to take out a huge wave of moaners. You've seen this before, but you haven't seen it on the iPhone yet. It's not the most original game, but it is pretty fun. Just close your eyes during the title screen and then open them when the game starts, and then you can tell yourself you're playing Resident Evil. Zombie Infection will have 10 levels when it's all said and done. No release date or price point are available yet.

Preview: Tom Clancy's HAWX (iPhone)

Dec 04 // Dale North
Tom Clancy's HAWX (iPhone)Developer: GameloftPublisher: Gameloft You'll fly over real locations in HAWX. Real real, as in real maps with correct geodata, in places like Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Chicago, Washington D.C. and more. When I wasn't shooting down the enemy, I was flying over these cities, low to the ground, trying to see all the landmarks. They're all there. And it wasn't just the ground that looked nice. The planes' models are fantastic for a phone game. They have a nice poly count and even show lighting from the sky. Those with 3GS phones will see extras, like missile trails and white noise static effects. Oh, and I can't forget the lovely orange sunsets. They put you at peace...until you get shot from behind and have to get back to the action. Damn, son! This is a pretty big game for an iPhone title. There's 13 missions to play through, and each is pretty involved. I know of dogfights, bombing missions, and protection missions, and I'm sure there's more. You'll fly in one of 25 licensed planes, coming from makers like MIG, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and others. You know, fancy planes like the F-14 and the Stealth Bomber. I was able to flick around and check out the planes in the selection screen. Nice, slick models. Inside, once your mission starts, you'll see that they have their own cockpits too. There's lots of detail piped into this game. There's two control schemes for HAWX: a thumb pad and the accelerometer. I liked the feeling of tilting the system a bit more, but it didn't feel like my movements were as precise as when I used the virtual controller nub. The throttle is on the left. Swipe for more juice. You'll also swipe left and right to change weapons. The control is really accessible -- I was up and dogfighting in no time. Too bad my test iPhone didn't have the Top Gun score on it, as the game supports the ability to play your own music. I tried my hand at a couple of missions. I was blown away when the game started talking to me, just like a console title. In one mission, I took to the skies, locking on and taking down planes in Rio. The mission progressed and had me taking out in-water targets. I had no problem zipping around the sky and taking down multiple attackers -- the control is spot-on here. Later I took out ground targets in the late evening sun, blinding lens flares and all. I stop and stared at how lovely it was, but snapped out of it as I got a Lock On warning. Looped back around, took 'em out, and gave myself a thumbs up. I didn't get to check out the multiplayer (up to 4 players, WiFi or Bluetooth), but I'm sure the deathmatch action is going to great, especially seeing as how great the game controlled. Big name, high-profile, almost console quality (and definitely PSP or DS quality) release for the iPhone? Thanks, GameLoft. Tom Clancy's HAWX is slated to be released in December.
