iFighter Lite is a fun, free, one-level preview of the upcoming game iFighter, a vertical-scrolling arcade shooter in which you pilot a WWII fighter plane against wave after wave of Nazi tanks, planes, bosses, and other ground and air targets. iFighter's interface lets you control your plane in one of three ways: with a touch directional pad, swiping touch controls, or simply by tilting your iPhone or iPod Touch.
The accelerometer-based controls are by far the best--and they're arguably an improvement over even the controls of iFighter's stand-up arcade predecessors, allowing for quick and precise movements as you dodge incoming enemy fire and swoop around collecting stars and medals from fallen foes for points. Your machine gun fires continuously as you progress through the level (and you can tap the screen to shoot even faster), and destroying certain enemies provides power-ups that give you fighter escorts, machine-gun upgrades, bonus health, and more screen-clearing bombs. Three levels of difficulty offer some replay value, but this short preview will mostly just leave you eagerly awaiting the full version of iFighter.
