RIght after I installed 2079, I was kind of surprised that the gameplay looks different and, well, unique in my taste. The game shows you some sort of a grid, but oddly, it rotates side by side while your ship passes through each of them in an infinite loop, until you get hit by the enemy or an inanimate object. The game is good for some, but for me, not yet, since I am the nervous type of player who as much as possible do not want any damage on my ship, which is an impossibility, especially if you are a newbie because you would have to get used to the navigation controls on the right, tapping the up, right, left, down and diagonal arrows to guide your ship’s lasers where to aim and shoot and using the accelerometer for movement.
The graphics are fairly good and you can even play your favorite iTunes stuff to be played in the background while you are playing the game. 2079 is still new and is in its first version. Expect more new features in its next succeeding versions like probably new enemy types and game modes. For now, I have to get used to the shooting navigation UI so that I can shoot properly before my ship gets disintegrated haha. The game can be pretty confusing and frustrating at first. But once you get used to the gameplay, this can probably be one addicting game to you.
