Command and Conquer: Red Alert for iPhone now in App Store


Multiplayer will be killer, let's hope this sells well and proves that full RTS games can thrive on the iPhone!

Its really good fun. The campaigns are short, but fun. But the skirmish mode is wicked. It only comes with 2 maps for skirmish, but 6 more are available as DLC for 59p. When this gets multiplayer it will be astounding. The controls are great, much closer to a true PC experience than any console port I've seen.
A lot of folks in the TA forums seem to be having crashing issues, but this seems to be people who aren't on the latest software and/or are running jailbroken iPhones. I personally have been playing for about 5-6 hours now and its only crashed once reloading after a phonecall.
at £5.99 i'd say its a little light. But £6.58 for the DLC as well and i'd say its a winner.

YES! Love the C&C series, but not a huge fan of the $9.99 price. I guess if I paid that for Madden 10 then I can stop my whining and get this awesome game. Multiplayer will be awesome!

Back in middle school, we played the original C&C and RA to death. I'm loving this, I hope it works alright on the 3G.

RockBand went down to £3.99 in a sale a week after release. I'm goad I waited , and I will be waiting here as well.

Ridlaw, its been in the UK app store since just after midnight monday morning. If you cant find it, try searching for Command & conquer red alert, or just doing a search for Electronic Arts

Thanks Maniacfive, I found it after! I just clicked the itunes link in the article and paniced :)

Between ourselves my current guild is loving starcraft 2 and looking forward to the new expansion heart of the swarm, thanks for the post
