App Store – Assassin’s Creed
While the iPhone/Touch have the ability to run ports of mainstream console games, simple and cheap games like Bejeweled still seem to be the most popular and fun to play.
Assassin’s Creed Altair’s Chronicles aims to change that.
With a free trial and a full version price of $4.99, the title is appropriately priced for the App Store.
The graphics are sharp and the gameplay is smooth. The cutscenes look awesome on the iPhone (pictured) and the gameplay utilizes the touch interface well.
Assassin’s Creed has some of the Prince of Persia gameplay that requires precise control to keep your character from falling off of beams, etc. While I still prefer the tactile feedback of a hardware controller, the touch controls on this game are very well done.
If you haven’t plaid a third person action game on the iPhone or want a game that’s a little more in depth, this free demo is worth checking out.
