Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Bombardiers Guild. First things first, for those unfamiliar with the term “bombardier,” they are members of the air force (and the like) who are responsible for dropping bombs on the appropriate target.
The game, then, sees you launching bombs from a turret placed at the bottom of the gameplay screen, with you being allowed to adjust the angle and power of your shot. However, as the game takes place in outer space, surrounding various planets and other celestial bodies, you’ll need to take each objects’ gravitational pull into account, as your bomb will curve around objects before finally detonating on target (that is, if you’ve aimed correctly).
Your ultimate goal is to destroy the bombardier at the top of the gameplay screen, which will come from one of three different alien cultures. There are 500 levels to complete, leaderboards to climb and achievements to earn via OpenFeint integration, and even the option to battle your friends in two-player multiplayer across each and every one of the 500 levels.
Bombardiers Guild will be free today and today only, so make sure to download it if the concept sounds interesting to you. You can also check out the gameplay video below to see the game in action.
