Project-G is an exciting fantasy adventure that leaves the fate of the world in your hands as you battle alien spaceships.
Available for free through the iTunes store, this app is a fun spin on retro style games.
Defending planet earth is your main goal in Project G, by Pearl Computing. Gamers are armed with various weapons controlled via touch-screen mechanics, requiring deft hand eye coordination and quick reflexes to annihilate the constantly incoming enemy.
This seemingly simple gaming is easy to learn the concept of, but it definitely takes some practice to get really good at.
When operating smoothly, Project G is a fun, simple, straight-shooting app that is easy enough to learn that you can start feeling competent at it in a relatively short period of time.
Unfortunately, I found that I experienced what seemed to be a slight lag when playing Project G; while I didn’t experience it at all times, it was enough of a lag to make the game a bit more difficult than it should have been. This is a little nit in an otherwise commendable title so hopefully the developers will work this out in the next update.
Appearance and Layout:
“Old school” is a pretty accurate term for describing Project G’s graphics.
The cartoonish drawings remind me of an old arcade game from another decade, and this appearance fits with what appears to be the intended feel for the app.
A clearly laid out home screen keeps navigational options in Project G clean and simple, and the controlling method in the game is really intuitive, so there isn’t really any need for instructional videos or anything of that sort.
While gamers who prefer detailed graphics probably won’t be impressed with what this app has to offer, anyone who is interested in a simple interface with arcade-style artwork will find Project G to be ideal.
As stated previously, Project G is a free app. It’s easy to find yourself engrossed by this relatively simplistic game, and passing time on Project G is not a question; count on it, it will happen.
Still, the occasional lag within the app might make for a bit of a frustrating experience starting out, especially if players aren’t interested enough in the game from the get-go. On the plus side the new release has significantly reduced the file size so the download is much faster than it was previously.
As a whole, however, Project G is a fun flashback to older gaming times and players will be rewarded with many hours of solid action and challenging gameplay.
Project-G requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this article.
