Halloween now be a distant memory, but the folks at iD Software are ready to tickle your fear fancy with the release of RAGE for iOS, available in two universal app versions, one of which ups the ante on high resolution textures for newer devices.
iD Software LLC have unleashed their RAGE onto the App Store -- and by that we mean RAGE the game, available in a 99-cent “standard definition” version as well as a $1.99 “HD” version with higher resolution textures. RAGE HD is targeted at newer iOS devices such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, fourth-generation iPod touch and iPad, while the SD version works on the same devices and adds support for the older iPhone 3G and second/third gen iPod touch as well.
“RAGE comes to your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch with the hit of the wastelands, Mutant Bash TV!” shouts the app description. “This intense first-person shooter casts you in the starring role of a post-apocalyptic game show where you’ll be stalked by hungry mutants while you scour pulse-pounding levels for ammo and cash pick-ups. Make a deal with J.K Stiles, the show’s menacing host, and see if you have what it takes to survive this carnage-filled carnival of death!”
The apps have just stormed into the App Store on Thursday, created specifically for Apple’s iOS mobile devices. Arm yourself with a pistol, shotgun or machine gun, and battle your way through three levels: the mutant-infested Tenements, the lunatic-ridden Asylum and the not so-abandoned Bunker.
Both versions of RAGE also let you perform hit-streaks and pick up “Bash Bux” to increase your performance as you make your way through the action-packed levels, each with four degrees of difficulty; complete Mutant Bash TV challenges and replay levels to beat your top score.
The best news is that both apps are universal, giving you the best gaming experience on small-screen iOS devices as well as the iPad. You’ll need to be rockin’ iOS 3.1 or later for the SD version and iOS 3.2 or later for the HD version on the iPad only. You’ll also need some patience -- the HD version is a 743MB download (537MB for the SD version), so you might want to hit your desktop iTunes and then sync to your device, just in case.
