  • Id Software’s Rage Comes to iOS


    Id Software has released Rage, an on-rails first-person shooter for iOS. The game is visually stunning, and is a great demonstration of just how good an iOS game can look. Video games have really come a long way since the iPhone was first introduced three years ago, and game developers like Id continue to push the iOS hardware to its visual limits.

    Id Software’s Doom Resurrection was released back in ’09 and it was quite a visual treat back then. Now that Rage is available in the App Store, the bar has been raised once again. Rage is available in two flavors, a standard version ($.99) and Rage HD ($1.99) with higher resolution textures and graphics. Rage HD is definitely the one to check out, but the game requires at least a third generation iOS device or an iPad.

    Rage is a rather short game, as it only has three levels. If you’ve played Doom Resurrection then you’ll feel right at home playing Rage. The game play is limited, as it is on-rails, but it works quite well on the iPhone. There’s the usual assortment of guns and ammo to pick up along the way and cash to collect also. Mutants come at you from every angle and some even throw bricks at you.



    The game is more of an iPhone preview of Id’s forthcoming console version of Rage, which looks to be another genre defining game by John Carmack. This version of Rage introduces players to a whole new post-apocalyptic wasteland full of new challenges and a wide array of mutants to kill. It should be fun when it comes out in September of next year. For now though, we’ll just have to enjoy the iPhone version in all of its mutant blasting glory.

      Very impressive game. What's better is this IMO will start trend of games coming to iOS first, then XBox/Playstation. It's extra money and free advertising for developer.

      On side not I downloaded the 750MB over 3G. Took about a hour and a half and with other typical day useage was the first time I've drained my iPhone 4 battery.

      Are you serious???? The game isn't worth $2. Its because of people like you who make developers think twice about spending longer hours on a game with awesome graphics and game play, because you cant spare $2. If it was $5 I would still buy it. I dont understand. People complain about the lack of good quality games and yet when one comes out "ohh its $2 that to much is there a lite version" cmon man seriously!!!

      So should I spend money on something I don't care about or even like?
      I don't like FPS's on PC/Consoles so why would I bother trying it on iOS. Even if the game was free I wouldn't download it.
      I certainly do not want to play any game with on screen controls

      If FPS' don't fit your fancy, then that is one thing. But to say the game looks pretty decent but you're not willing to spend $2 on it without trying it out first is entirely different. You aren't blindly handing over your life savings, rather you're spending less than a days bus fare in most places.

      Mortopher, I think you made your point. From one perspective $2 is absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things, but it absolutely adds up.

      That he's a poor college kid that owns an iPhone -- the iPhone itself is a huge investment. Heck, I saved my money for two months to buy an iPod Touch 4, and I'm very picky about what apps I buy for it. The cost of a bus fare here, the cost of a bus fare there, and soon you're at $10, which is the price of a hot meal. At some point you'll have to decide if playing Rage HD is worth that hot meal. There are no barter states anymore - if you're short $1 the person at the counter has no moral, lawful, or professional obligation to feed you.

      Just because he's poor doesn't mean he's undeserving of an iPhone, or that he should ditch his $90 sneakers for Crocs to better pinch pennies -- why the 'ALL OR NOTHING' mentality? I'm sure he made a conscious decision to invest his money in where it mattered to him most. Apps are completely optional.

      I don't think a lot of people here understand what it's like to really be poor.

      Wow. Some of y'all act like you're really rich.

      If $2 means NOTHING to you, can I bum 2 bucks?

      Didn't think so.
