G.O.D. (God of Defence): Written iPhone App Review
There are games that allow you to defend cities and civilizations, but imagine if you are the sole defender of humankind against all of hell’s fury? You would be doing just that in G.O.D. (God of Defence) from developer MGAME Corp.. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 3.0 or later.
When initially G.O.D. (God of Defence) loads, the user is asked to register for an account. The user will need to complete this step prior to accessing actual game play. Once they decide on an ID event and Nickname, they will receive special in game rewards in their “gift box” function such as “HP” and “MP”.
The basic premise of the game is that the user is posing as a “god” and they are defending the human world from the weakening gates of hell where enemy demons are breaking out. The user can build their “defense” by using special elements such as fire, plasma, and ice. These elements can also upgrade and help the user master certain attack skills. There is a help tutorial available through the main page, so the user can get a basic idea of the game works prior to actually playing it. It resembles more of a point and shoot game, where the user will angle the direction towards the hordes of demons and demolish them.
There are 26 enemy demons to conquer, and each of them has their own unique counterattacking features. The sure will need to identify these features and figure out away to attack back. The user can obtain up to 12 total achievement awards and they can also fare how their game play is doing success-wise by checking out other players’ track records worldwide.
Please note that this game app has been rated “9+” due to its “infrequent/mild cartoon or fantasy violence” present in the apps thematic elements or graphic images.
Appearance and Layout:
The graphics of G.O.D. (God of Defence) are okay but in a way, a little bit over the top and cheesy. For example, right when the user loads the game app, they are immediately prompted with a typical target audience generic of a fantastically and unnecessarily enhanced character in various menu functions. The introduction character doesn’t have really anything to do with the game or even the actual play characters themselves, but it’s just there for show and attraction. The rest of the game’s graphics and animations are a bit flat and fall short to truly impress. The overall function layout is decent and self-explanatory, all though some of there are a few grammatical and spelling errors visible.
The sounds effects are good and complement with the game play and app actions.
The fact that G.O.D. (God of Defence) is offered for free makes up for its lackluster in the features and appearance departments. It is definitely not a game geared toward younger audiences due to its exaggerated graphics and somewhat violent game play, but for young adult and older gamers, this game is worth a try. Since it is free, you won’t really lose out on anything, except for time.
