Developer C2Matrix posted in our Forums about HotField, the company’s new top-down space shooter for the iPhone. It looks pretty rippin’!
HotField seems like a blend of five or six popular top-down shooters; there’s a little bit of Raiden in there, definitely some Ikaruga, and maybe even a touch of the iPhone’s own Space Ninja. The game’s got “bullet time,” a shield-charging mechanic, multiple control schemes, and gameplay recording, to name just a few features. Here’s the full list:
# 3 type of ships with 4 level major fire.
# 6 stages, 6 mega bosses, 5 game modes.
# “bullet-time”, “Fury state”, amazing and addictive gameplay system.
# Boss mode for fight with bosses.
# Load/Save game.
# Online top 10, one click to sync your scores to global server.
# Record your playing for replay later.
# Textured and huge 3d live elements, 3D layers.
# Plenty of blended sprites.
# Vibration support.
# Original background music and sound effect, volumn adjustable.
# Support portrait and landscape display mode.
