Stone Wars for iPhone

As I've mentioned previously, I enjoy finding new apps for the iPhone/
iPod Touch.

Last week I came across this game, Stone Wars. I've spent a lot of
time playing it since. Sure, that's partly to do with the fact that
I'm not very good at it, but mostly due to it being fun.

As of right now, June 27, 2010, it is still FREE in the app store.

It's a turn based game where you, as a caveman, attempt to defeat your
enemies with primitive weapons.

So far I have only played the Arcade mode, but you also have the
option to play against others on the Internet, locally via wi-fi or
Bluetooth, or vs the game itself.

In the Arcade mode completing a level adds another weapon/tool to your
arsenal. Some levels grant you more than one.

The levels are not designed for fast play. Many are complex and quite
time consuming. You have to be able to figure out how to stay alive
and kill all your enemies. Many levels have a "teammate" that you can
rescue, or even one that you start with. As long as one is alive, the
level continues.

Survival often requires the purchase if food. To afford the food you
have to demolish rocks to find gold and gems. Unfortunately these do
not carry to the next level. The gens are also needed to pay for the
use of some items later on as well. If you don't have the money,
you'll need to do some more blasting.

The controls are quite simple. Just drag to aim, or to change the
viewing area. Pinch to zoom in and out just as you do in the Safari
browser you've been using. Use the left and right arrows to walk, and
the up arrow to jump. For most weapons the fire button is also a "hold
to charge" button, allowing you to control the force of your attack.

What are you waiting for? Go get it now while it's still available for
FREE. You can't beat the price and you are sure to get your moneys
