Enemy Dawn for iOS takes you back to the beginning of World War II as a Polish soldier who must fight off an invasion of stuka aircraft, panzer tanks and even warships by commanding a mobile rocket launcher with a combination of tilt controls and touch gestures to aim and fire rockets.
Graphically, Enemy Dawn has a distinctive 2D style with some nicely illustrated backdrops and detailed vehicles to fire upon, but don't be fooled by appearances - this game is hard to beat, particularly on later levels that will require strategy and quick reactions to destroy the enemy.
You need to score 5,000 points to progress to the next level, and each type of enemy is worth a certain number of points, but to succeed, you'll have to keep an eye on your limited resources, such as fuel for your truck and rockets which can be replenished with air-drops.
The controls can take some getting used to, but the game provides 2 control modes; by default, tilting the device moves your rocket launcher left and right, while swiping the right-side of the screen aims your rocket-launcher. Alternatively, a 'joystick' type control is available, allowing a control-method to suit all tastes.
- Call in artillery strikes
- Fire Katyusha rockets
- Fight off attacking aircraft
- Fight off infantry and tanks
- Attack warships
Enemy Dawn is a fun and very challenging action/strategy game that's definitely worth a look - especially for fans of historical shooters.
