I have a confession to make: I’ve been addicted to pills for quite some time now. I know, I know, drugs are bad, m’kay? But I didn’t buy these suckers from a shady Armenian in some club bathroom; they were available on Steam. Technology, amiright? I should probably mention that they weren’t real pills, though, because that tidbit is rather pertinent to the news at hand — especially if you’re considering dabbling some yourself.
The pills I’m talking about are the colorful, sparkly, exploding tablets of Intake — The Doctor Mario-ish retro-shooter from CipherPrime. It’s a game that I called “the arcade-shooter to defeat all arcade-shooters” in my review, and the folks responsible have been working day and night on a port that can do its style justice — a port that’s reportedly ready to go.
Cipher has revamped the gameplay to better accommodate the multitouch platform, and the iOS version will contain all the features and content of the original release. Also included will be Game Center achievements and leaderboards, you know, for those interested in throwing away some lifelong friendships. For more information, check out the official site. Also, before jumping head-first into any 80’s drug-scene territory, it’s always best to read the review.
