Caster HD iPhone Review

Caster HD is a 3d action shooter for the iPad and the iPhone/iTouch. It is basically a revamped version of “Caster”, the same game from similar developers released a few months back, to make it look better and play better (perhaps?) on the iPad.

The game is now out for $0.99 at your local appstore. Continue reading

The designers and developers of the game are part of those two games I mentioned, therefore they are extremely similar in terms of game concept and design. The brief outline of the game is basically you choosing a character, taking some quests, go into dungeons, kill the monsters, come back out, finish the quest, repeat. Sounds boringly repetitive? Nah, it is totally addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Continue reading
