Ring Blade: TUAW’s Featured Daily App Review

Ring Blade offers a unique spin on the traditional top-down shooter games, often referred to as “bullet hell.” This genre is known for its intense difficulty, but Ring Blade is somewhat more accessible. One common challenge for such games on the iPhone has been the control scheme.

Ring Blade introduces an innovative solution by allowing players to flick their ship across the bottom of the screen instead of dragging it, which often obstructs the view. Players can charge their shots with a simple touch and then flick them towards the walls of the screen, where they ricochet back and forth, damaging enemies in their path.

This novel control mechanism is quite effective on the iPhone.

Additionally, as highlighted above, the game distinguishes itself with its graphics, which are inspired by tribal tattoos. This aesthetic contributes to the unique appearance of enemies and bosses within the game.
