PSA: Free Cobra Command Today Only

cc segacd
Like the SegaCD game but w/ more color and less control

On iPhone/iPod Touch:

Data East’s ’80s laserdisc arcade classic Cobra Command, which came to the iPhone late last year, is available as a free download for today only. The game is normally priced at $4.99.

In the game, you play as a pilot in the world’s most advanced helicopter, the LX-3 Super Cobra. Your enemies consist of an elite terrorist group, who also fly around in helicopters (although presumably nowhere near as advanced as yours). Gameplay involves an interactive movie playing behind a cockpit overlay with on-screen controls to move a crosshair around the screen to fire at enemies. There are also points in the game where you will need to follow the audio prompts of your commander and steer your helicopter, this is accomplished by tilting, or using the virtual joystick depending on what method you select in the game’s options.

While it’s no Dragon’s Lair or Road Avenger (greatest gaming song ever!) Cobra Command is still pretty decent if you can tolerate LD games after *cheap shot* Heavy Rain.

    Yoink! Thanks for the heads up. I don’t know if it’ll fit on my already cramped iPod Touch, though.
