iPod freebie: Geofighter – Light Wars
There are scores of would-be Geometry Wars imitators on the App Store, most of them flawed in various ways, but this is just about the best effort I've found at the twin-stick vector-graphics arena shooter on iPod.
Geofighter – Light Wars is as basic as they come, with Wave modes and a Survival mode that picks up the difficulty quickly after a gentle start, but it's smooth and enjoyable, has a clever auto-centering system that minimises the problem of enemies hiding behind your thumbs, and it's going free.
Be quick, though, you've only got a few hours to snag this one.
Remember, if you don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch yet with which to enjoy the now-est gaming of the modern zeitgeist, you can still grab the games anyway with iTunes while they’re free, and upload them to your iPod when you get one.
And if you’re ready to join in the fun, you can do it at a giveaway price by subscribing to WoS, where subscribers learn how to pick up a brand-new 32GB 3rd-gen iPod Touch for just £6 – no strings, no contracts, no referrals, no getting other people do do anything, just a fun bit of exploiting capitalism for half-an-hour’s effort.
