    Overview
    This game developed by Pangea Software ( the same people from Enigmo ), is probably the most crazy adventure game in the App Store. I'm happy to report that this game is fun as well as intuitive, a fun adventure for just about anybody. With up to seven different save files you can let your friend play without destroying your game. I'm going to be honest it took me about 15 minutes of play to get to liking it, so don't be disappointed when you first play it. Also, this game is NOT for everybody, be advised you might not like it so I recommend you read my review BEFORE buying the game.



    Game: Billy Frontier
    Company: Pangea Software
    Size: 29.4
    Price: $2.99 first week, then $5.99 after that

    Gameplay
    Here is the official story from iTunes:

    Billy Frontier is a space cowboy who's mission is to rid the galaxy of alien outlaws.

    Not much. Just that, You're a space cowboy ( as odd as it sounds ) and you have to eliminate the alien outlaws form your galaxy. there are different types of aliens including: green aliens, some aliens that look like bears and .... well,.... well,.... yeah that's pretty much it...

    Gameplay
    To help you better understand I've divided the "Gameplay" category into several sub-categories.


    Graphics
    Not much to say... Terrible. The game is 3D, but it looks like a Nintendo DS game. Pixelated and cheap, the graphics are NOT AT ALL surprising. I wish I could say that the graphics will improve in the next release, but usually games don't update their graphics, rather bugs.

    Some Graphics Examples


    WOW! Look the "realistic" house!

    Fun?
    Sort of. Not really what I expected, but it definetly keeps me entertained, at least for 30 minutes. Then I pass the game.. Doesn't last long because it doesn't have a lot of missions, but since it only has about 10 ( ten ) missions just about anybody can pass the game in an hour.

    Bugs
    Surprisingly the game does not have too many lags, other than the immense lagging. No joke. The game lags a lot, though it does not crash.


    Rating
    6.8/10. Because the game is incredibly easy, laggy, and pixelated. Take a look, but I don't recommend it.



    Other Info

    - I would say you should be it this week because it's $2.99, but it's not worth it.


    - Here is my other review, Asphalt 4 Elite Racing.

    - Much time went into this so say "thanks" if I helped.

    The graphics are the best on the iphone/touch currently. You can't say that they are terrible when they are the most superior. It's not very pixelated either. And when I play the game, there is 0 lag. Not even a tiny bit. Maybe something is wrong with your iphone/touch.

    lol, I was thinking the same thing, and the point about there being no crashing ?
    All this game has really done for me is crash, I go to change the settings, it crashes, I'm shooting some aliens, it crashes, I'm running from cow things, it crashes......

    Yes I do own the game. It has never crashed, not even once. The game has actually pretty good graphics as most people will agree, but even if some don't they will definitely say they are not terrible. For 2.99 this game is pretty cheap. The only thing you can say I guess is that it's to quick to beat and doesnt offer long playtime.

    I think it's a great game with fine graphics and almost no lag.

    Bad review.
    Seems to me like someone hates Pangea.


    And when you compare the graphics to DS graphics and say that's a bad thing..
    Well that's just plain stupid.

    DS was MADE for purely playing games on. iPod Touch was just an iPod and Apple didn't even intend people to play games on it at the beginning.
    People have to remember that this is an mp3 player, not a PS3.
