MUTANT STORM is an explosive shooter game that will probably make you a bit claustrophobic as the teleporting enemies close in on you. To win missions you must kill all enemies before time runs out and stay alive through the 89 levels. Successful completion of the 89 levels (once) will earn you your White Belt — you only need to do this 9 more times to get the coveted MUTANT STORM Black Belt. This game draws it’s inspiration from the classic arcade game “Robotron: 2084,” which is a dual-stick shooter that I immensely enjoyed as a young gamer. MUTANT STORM brings that same dual-stick shooting action seamlessly to the iPad — and in a really cool way.
Integrating a martial arts “belt” system for difficulty really adds a sense of discipline and expected difficulty to the overall game experience. Each level, or “room” (really waves) features a variety of non-shooting, shooting, and in cases indestructible enemies that continuously teleport into the room. Rooms are of different dimensions, colors, appear to pulsate, and your view may change depending on your movement. There are also some added nuances in difficulty such as the elusive power-ups that come from your dead enemies and the bonus “blocks” as I like to call them. The power-ups come fast and move away from you quickly disappearing if you don’t grab them. The bonus “blocks” are part of each room (when available) that you do not want to destroy, because if left in tact they’ll provide you some very nice bonus points to help your score.
The game has 2 distinct game modes: Adventure — which is basically a campaign mode, and Tally — which is level or room based where you need to complete each room in order. The cool thing about both game modes is that you can play levels in any belt in Tally mode and in selective belts in Adventure mode based on how far you have gotten. In other words, levels can be played in a up to 10 difficulty levels or belts in Tally as well as Adventure, but in Adventure you must prove yourself worthy before you can access all belt difficulties. The other huge difference between the game modes is that in Adventure you get 3 ships and 3 smart bombs, but in Tally it 1 ship and no smart bombs. You may also customize your ship, selecting from 4 current designs and a variety of color palettes.
I really enjoyed this game and found myself playing easily for a couple of hours. I challenge you to compare the 2 game modes, as well as the difficulty levels of the same level in Tally — big difference. Oh, yeah, the game is time-based, so besides the massive enemies you have to deal with, there is a time factor for every room no matter which game mode you are in. MUTANT STORM should be a huge hit because it plays stellar on the iPad and is currently selling for only $2.99 (launch special), but after this limited time it will return to its regular price of $4.99 — so grab it while you can at the reduced price.
