Archetype: promising FPS coming to iPhone – Macitynet.it
If N.O.V.A. are excluded and very few other exponents of the genre, of quality FPS if you see very few on iPhone and iPod Touch. In an attempt to make up for such a shortcoming, the MunkyFun development team is preparing to launch on the App Store Archetype, a multiplayer shooter featuring an excellent graphic sector. The plot, it must be said, far from original, having the sole purpose of giving context to the unbridled online battles; following an alien invasion, in fact, human soldiers will divide into groups and fight each other to train, in view of the final battle. Fortunately, the developers are not new to the science fiction genre, having previously worked on LucasArts.
In Archetype it will be possible to face match 5 against 5, through five different scenarios and using six original weapons, divided between firearms and melee weapons. The winners will be rewarded with experience points and value medals, while their results will be shared via Facebook Connect. Unfortunately there is no single-player mode, but the developers have ensured the presence of an offline tutorial to be able to familiarize themselves before launching into the challenges via WiFi or 3G. Archetype is expected to arrive on the App Store by the first half of July, at a cost of ? 2.39.
