The iBomber franchise will be familiar to those of you who enjoy a good tower defence clone, but with this sequel Cobra Mobile has switched things around a bit.

You're no longer playing the passive role and fending off the unwanted attention of enemy bombers. This sequel places you in command of a WW2 tank and lets you loose in the European countryside with only one objective: destroy as much of the German army as possible.

To do this, you have to utilise a pretty standard twin-stick control arrangement. Your tank is surprisingly nippy for a piece of 1940s tech, and can fire in all a full 360-degree range.

Almost every object in the game can be obliterated, and a large portion of the entertainment value comes from turning buildings to rubble and freshly-cut hedgerows into piles of leaves.

For you, the war is over

Of course, the really satisfying targets are the German forces themselves. Infantry can be killed just by driving over them (an act which leaves an unsightly red stain on the ground) but more heavily armoured targets assail you from the opening mission, and these require cannier tactics to overcome.

Along the way you can pick up gold and use it to purchase special support weapons. You also earn points with which you can upgrade the capabilities of your tank, adding additional armour or increasing the punching power of your cannon.

There are 24 missions to tackle, and each has several objectives, offering a surprising degree of replay value. Even when you've finished all the stages and finally defeated Hitler's forces, there's still some enjoyment to be had simply driving through the lush, Retina-display environments and seeing how much carnage you can cause.

Home in time for Christmas

Of course, it goes without saying that iBomber Attack isn't exactly original - there's little here that hasn't already been seen elsewhere on the App Store. Thankfully, it's executed so well, with superb visual and punchy sound, that it overcomes the disadvantage of familiarity with sheer quality.

Twin-stick shooter fans will want to download this as soon as they can. Despite being derivative, iBomber Attack is one of the best examples of the genre currently available.

It's hardly groundbreaking, but iBomber Attack has tight gameplay, excellent graphics and a fair amount of longevity, all of which ensures that it's well worth the asking price.
