If you’re looking for a challenging game that features fast-paced action and historical elements, Enemy Dawn might be just what you’re searching for. Developed by Simplus Technologies Group, LLC, this World War II game for iPhone and iPad transports players to the battlefield where they must do their best to fight for freedom.
Enemy Dawn puts players in the shoes of a Polish soldier who is faced with the challenge of defending his country against an onslaught of attacks from both land and air. Players have the opportunity to control a mobile rocket launcher that requires constant attention to fuel and health.
To control your rocket launcher in Enemy Dawn, you have to tilt your device in order to move it across the screen. Tapping on the left side of your screen fires a rocket, while sliding your right finger left to right on the right side of the screen lets you aim your rocket launcher. Players can also call in artillery strikes against enemy tanks.
One of the things I noticed about Enemy Dawn is that it takes a bit of time to get used to controls, but it’s slightly easier once you get the hang of things. As you’re playing, various power ups such as health, ammo, and fuel will drop from the sky. You can also collect enemy gold by rolling over it with your vehicle.
Enemy Dawn is a level-based game, which means you have to complete a level before you can move onto the next one. The game is pretty difficult to play because so many things are going on, and new players might get a bit frustrated at first. There are a total of five levels for players to unlock.
One feature I wish Enemy Dawn included is the ability to change the difficulty level of the game. This is primarily because it’s pretty easy to get killed quickly if you’re not paying attention or if you’re still trying to figure out how to play the game. Different difficulty levels would help new players develop strategies while avoiding the frustration of constantly getting killed.
Enemy Dawn allows users to customize controls via the settings menu. Players can choose between sliding their finger left to right in order to aim the rocket launcher barrel or use an on-screen joystick. Personally I prefer the first setting, as it allows players to aim the rocket launcher quickly.
Lastly, Enemy Dawn feature support for five different languages: English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese.
When it comes down to it, Enemy Dawn is a challenging World War II game for iPhone and iPad. In terms of price, I definitely think that $0.99 is incredibly reasonable given the fact that players don’t have to purchase additional things in-game.
There’s also a free version of the game if you’re not prepared to take the plunge just yet.
Enemy Dawn requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
