iOS Shooter Epoch Pits Killbots Against Each Other in a Ruined, Human-Free Future

Getting a sharp, polished shooter experience on iOS still remains something of a holy grail for both developers and device owners. There've been a few valiant efforts over the last year, with ShadowGun and Rage: Mutant Bash TV probably foremost amongst them. Now, you'll be able to add one more to your apps list today with the launch of Epoch.


Built by Uppercut Games, Epoch finds one de-activated robot soldier coming back to awareness in an era where humanity's apparently disappeared. The heroic automaton fights his way through warring factions of droids to learn the fate of the human he was assigned to protect. The gorgeous graphics tip you off that the game was built on Unreal and, if the controls match the visuals, Epoch might just be this year's shooter equivalent to Infinity Blade. It's out now on Apple's App Store.

iOS gaming elite here. Yeah, you heard me. iOS is obviously the best platform, and for many reasons. The controller is the best: What're buttons? Oh, those circular things? Yeah, I can have thousands. Games? I've got so many games to choose from that I don't know what to do with myself. Not to mention they're all as cheap as dirt. Lastly, my superior iPad 2 has so many different functions and uses that all you peasant PC, Mac, and console users would quiver in fear of its unlock screen.

Go home.

I'm out of your league.
