The best quickplay shooter out there.
Although H1N1 Buster seems to be surfing on the pandemia wave, it is a 2D shooter to consider, for 0.99$.
Basically, it's kind of a mix between Asteroid and Syberian Strike. Viruses come down the screen and you try to shoot them down, or avoid them, as they fly towards you.
The big viruses seperate in 2-4 medium ones.
The medium viruses also split into smaller viruses.
As you get to level 4, it's already quite difficult, if you're not careful. But fortunately, you have power-ups! They don't have names, so I'll try to make some up.
- Slow-Down : Bullet-time effect, for a few seconds
- Double-Speed: Double firepower
- Red-attacks: Piercing bullets that clear the screen in no time
- Shield: You're invincible when you have this. Almost.
- Lightning: Blast the whole screen
- Life: 1up !
As you progress through the levels, the music evolves into something more stressful, and the viruses get frantic. If you keep your calm, you can navigate around the viruses, and stay in control. If you panic and kill all the big viruses, you will soon be surrounded by smaller viruses, and thingd will get out of hand... unless you get the right power-ups!
Originally, I bought H1N1 Buster as a joke to show to my friends, as we always make H1N1 jokes, but after we all played it one by one, we all wanted to play it a few more times. In fact, now I'm very happy that I got it, because I get to keep it, and take it out whenever I have 5 minutes to spend on my ipod.
All in all, I really like this game, and I recommend it to anyone who likes tetris, shooters and funky music.
But beware, you might end-up spending more time then you expected when you got this game.
An as they say, although H1N1 Buster will not cure actual diseases, it's a definite shot of fun.
Try it, rate it!
