Incline to survive. Do exactly what it says on the tin: tilt to live. Tilt your device to control the arrow. Dodge the red dots and pick up power-ups to help you survive.
Power up. Power-up you can collect as you play include Vortex, Lightning, Spike Shield, and more. Each gives you a special limited-time ability to help you get rid of those pesky dots that are always in your way.
What is it about?
In Tilt to Live, you're in control of a small triangular ship and your gyroscope-equipped iPhone is the steering wheel. Turn left and right by moving your handset through the air, and avoid enemy missiles (while taking out actual enemies) as you go. You'll need to have fast reactions and smart tactics in order to survive in this game.
For those who...
- Love gyroscope-based controls.
- Enjoy outer-space blast-ups.
- Aren't afraid to move their iPhone through the air like a crazy person in public.
Not for those who...
- Prefer on-screen controls.
- Suffer with motion sickness.
Why we love it
Tilt to Live defined a genre in App Store gaming, and it's still going strong today. We love the title: it's fun, fast-paced, and features an awesome control system that never gets old.
Tilt to Live is $2.99 but there are more add-ons
