Wrath is a great BlackBerry game that has been around for a long time. It was Lone Dwarf Games’ first crack at an app and was originally developed exclusively for the Storm in 2009.
Wrath now works with most devices and the price has been permanently reduced from the original price of $4.99 to $0.99. Keep reading to find out how you could score a free copy!
I started playing Wrath a few days ago and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. It has a space invaders/galaga feel to it. Wave after wave of enemies relentlessly attack in an attempt to destroy your lone ship. You can collect powerups along the way to increase health and firepower. If you destroy all or most of the enemies in a wave, you are awarded health and super bombs. Super bombs (which can also be collected during the game) destroy all enemies on the screen, with the exception of bosses. A super bomb will, however, damage a boss.
These are the control options for the non-touch version. I would highly recommend Trackball option 2 as it allows for much faster navigation.
A cool features of all of Lone Dwarf’s games is the ability to use your own music during the game. You can pick a playlist and have it shuffle through your own songs, including or excluding the Wrath soundtrack. I’m not a fan of the sound effects or shoot sound so its nice that those can be disabled.
Here’s a screen capture of one of the bosses. Another great feature of Wrath is the ability to quit a game and close the app completely then come back and resume exactly where you left off. It is tough to put down and trust that your precious score will be saved, but don’t worry. It works…as long as you don’t pull the battery. Yes, I did test this. Not on purpose though.
Which brings me to my favourite feature: the online leaderboard.
When you’re beloved ship is finally overtaken and destroyed by those dastardly aliens (and it WILL be destroyed), you have the option to post your score to the online leaderboard. I’m thinking there must be a separate leaderboard for each version of the game (touch and non-touch) because it seems to me the non-touch version would be easier to navigate. I’m not sure if not many people play the game and actually submit to the leaderboard, or if I’m actually good at the game. I’m gonna go with the former for sure.
