The first mobile entry in the Borderlands series arrives on iOS devices today with a twist.
Fans of the popular shooter series might be just a little bit put off at first glance with Borderlands Legends. And basically, that’s because it’s a strategy title.
Instead of a simplified FPS that fans are used to, the iOS version of the game features a real-time-strategy play style. Players control all four characters from the first Borderlands at the same time across randomized levels that are different every time you play and feature a pretty heavy cover mechanic.
It actually looks pretty interesting and definitely is a new look at the universe Gearbox Software created. You can grab it now on the App Store in both iPad and iPhone flavors for $4.99 each- which also makes me wonder: why not a universal App?
semi-interested, although I need to upgrade my iPod to play it. Ever since support for Gen2 was cut there are less and less things I can play which don't crash randomly :/ Does it still have the loot system from the PC Borderlands games?
Meh, yes and no as I understand it. There are still loads of guns, but the emphasis isn't on collecting them.
Time to grab an iPad Mini, perhaps? 😉
Better hurry too. They only got a handful of Minis at the store I visited this morning!
Every thing has an app now days, and now ever app has a board game.
