2079 Review

Eric Tong’s 2079 is a clever interpretation of Geometry Wars for the iPhone. True to the two-stick shooter genre, your enemies spawn in waves, and then come after you in patterns; you have to dodge and strafe around them while hosing them down with your guns. Tilt controls move the ship, while your right thumb controls the omni-directional cannon. 2079 isn’t anything we haven’t seen before, but it is definitely one of the better shooters on the App Store right now, even though we wish we could play it entirely by touch. It’ll get your blood pumping, and we appreciate the smooth graphics, power-ups, and online scoring. We give it a 3.
