The grudge match between iPhone users and those poor, misguided souls who believe that their Android handset is soooo superior can now be settled in the theater of war. Finally, the endless arguments over the numbers of apps available, open source versus closed ecosystem will end with the loser failing to the sound of pew-pew-pew-pew.
Yes friends, live multiplayer cross-platform smartphone games have come to the App Store and are also available to--ahem--those Google Android types. Currently, you can race your competition in Raging Thunder 2, or strike them out playing Home Run Battle 3D. Both games are great ways to enjoyably fritter away some spare time, but according to Engadget, there's a new gaming monster on the loose that gets to the roots of what the true fanboy really wants: the ability take a flamewar to the next level by shooting the proponents of another platform down in flames.
Social Gaming Network's Skies of Glory puts players behind the controls of a World War II fighter plane during the Battle of Britain. The game supports combat over 3G or WiFi for up to eight players at a time. You can even put together a custom playlist--you know, something laid back to listen to as you frag the competition and cackle madly as their fire shrouded remains plummet into the English countryside.
So watch your six, because the next time you sign on for a bit of game time, an ace from the other side could be looking to zero you.
