Usually, games with spaceships feature fantastic weapons that you use to blast away obstacles and enemies. In a fast-paced, minimalistic alternative to this genre, Instincts challenges you to avoid what you can’t just smash through, making some tricky decisions along the way.
Vibrant, but minimalistic, graphics
Instincts is very much a retro-styled game, with minimalistic graphics that hail back to the eight-bit days of gaming. Still, the vibrant colors and fast-paced action will keep you coming back for more. The game features 15 different characters to unlock, along with endless gameplay. Well, as endless as your instincts and reactions allow for, that is.
Tricky obstacles and tough decisions
The true difficulty in the game lies in making the right decisions. Swipe your spaceship down one path, and you’ll find the going easy. If your instincts lead you wrong, though, you’ll be blasting down a hallway fraught with dangerous obstacles that will smash your craft to smithereens.
Simple one-touch controls
All you have to do is swipe left or right to control your spacecraft. That sounds easy enough, except that you’re moving lightning fast and can quickly find yourself smashing into a wall or one of the obstacles in your path. Instincts also features GameCenter leaderboards, so you can keep track of how you stack up against others.
Trust your Instincts
Instincts is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 7 or later. The game is a free download on the App Store, but it does include both ads and in-app purchases. Check out the action in the trailer below, or click here if it fails to load.
