i-warrior- Africa’s first ever i-phone game
For a minute imagine you are the only warrior in your African village who can save it from the attacks of mighty rhinos, thunderous elephants and crafty hyenas. Your task is to defend your helpless village by feeding and driving away the animals before they crash and feed on your livestock and garden!! What a challenge?
This is the virtual situation Leti Game’s newest i-phone game puts you in. i-warrior is an attractive game that utilizes the i-Phone’s inbuilt accelerometer to control movement and shooting actions. For those not to familiar with the i-phone accelerometer, you can use your finger to slide and tap, this controls movement and shooting. I have played this game you can move and shoot.
What captivates me the most is the African theme, this game is built on as well as the stunning natural effects that come with the rain and thunder. Users have the luxury of playing their own music in the background and they save their village and livestock. The i-warrior is currently on the Apple app store and sells at $2.99.
The icing on the cake is the fact that this wonderful African game has been ported for most j2me midp2.0 devices. The j2me version of this game is called Kijiji. So for those without i-phone can still enjoy it on their Nokia or Sony Ericson mobiles. Simple keys on the phone are used to control this version of the i-phone.
I have played this game a couple of times. I was part of the first stock of testers when the game was still in Beta. As a game addict, I must say I found the game very exciting. i-warrior has been tried by other gamers like White African who gave his comments on his technology blog. Gameli Adjaho a fellow software entrepreneur evaluated the i-warrior on Gamelian World. You can download the game from here .
