In what seems to be a growing population, another Steampunk I-Phone app has appeared on my radar, Backlash 1.0, by Sinecure Industries. I’ve seen a lot of games that assume that shading their game in brown and gold and throwing some gears in the background will make it sufficiently Steampunk to boost sales. I don’t review that garbage, and I don’t waste all of your time with it. This game stands out and seems intriguing because it is heavily based in physics and yet still succeeds at being amusing.
If you want to learn more about the game, you can read about it on Sinecure’s website. I think the music is only meh… it has absolutely no Steampunk aspects to it whatsoever, but thankfully, the music is one thing that is easily enough muted on an iPhone game. But for 40 levels of Physics based gameplay, at 99 cents, it’s not a bad deal.
If this suits your fancy, you can buy the game here via the iTunes Store.
