Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is 2360: Battle for Cydonia, an action adventure game from Brisk Mobile.
The title is, as the title suggests, set in the far future, where a battle has ensued over the right to colonize Mars, and you’re placed in the role of pilot, taking control of the Datalus-5, an advanced weapon used by the Resistance. Gameplay is spread through 21 levels that see you tapping and dragging your finger across the screen to aim and fire on your enemies.
Long sweeping motions will lay down cover fire, multi-touch capabilities will let you fire on more than one enemy at once, and you can even draw a path with your finger and watch your projectiles follow suit. Your main weapon, the Datalus-5, is upgradable in terms of its armor, weapon type and so on, and there are three levels of difficulty to choose from depending on your gaming skill level.
You can either take on the game’s career mode, or tackle endless gameplay in survival mode, and can add your own music as a soundtrack to the game. As you play, you’ll be able to track your scores on the game’s leaderboards and earn achievements via OpenFeint integration.
2360: Battle for Cydonia will be available for free today and today only, so be sure to download it if you’d like to give the game a chance, or check out the gameplay video below to see the game in action.
