Gameloft is well known for developing mobile games inspired by others, with N.O.V.A. 2 (aka Halo) and Zombie Infection (aka Resident Evil) being just a couple of examples. Now it appears that they’ve just released a new iOS game called StarFront: Collision, which as you guessed it is inspired by StarCraft.
As Michael over on the iphonedownloadblog.com website recently noted, the gameplay and mechanics in the StarFront: Collision game are similar to that of any other real-time strategy title. Players have the option of three races to choose from: the Consortium, the Myriad and the Warden.
Once players have chosen their preferred race, they will then fight to gain control of the Xenodium crystals. Just like with any other RTS title, players will be tasked with building structures, mining resources, training battle units and defending/swarming their enemy until they complete their objective.
The campaign mode is packed with a total of 17 missions, with players taking a role of each of the three previously mentioned races. Players begin the game as the Consortium, but will soon move on to the Myriad race and then eventually onto the advanced-robotic race of the Warden.
As noted on the itunes.apple.com website, the StarFront: Collision app – which is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch (3rd and 4th generation) and iPad running iOS 3.1.3 or above – also features a 4-player multiplayer mode, which can be played local or online.
