Craft. That's a good word for what MachineWorks Northwest practices here -- a real craftsmanship that just has no equal in the space right now. Even if a first-person shooter against aliens isn't your bag, you simply cannot deny the quality of Prey Mobile. I know so many hardcore gamers will turn their noses up to this game just because it's on mobile, but if you're somebody with an open mind or the desire to try out a first-person shooter without investing $400 into a video game console, this is a great choice. It's only available on high-end 3D handsets (look at the top tier phones on Verizon Wireless), but I think after you see this -- and some of the other great things MachineWorks has in the hopper but cannot talk about just yet -- you'll be tempted to upgrade your phone.
At just $2.99, Prey Invasion is a steal -- it really is a great value. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results of Machineworks' hard work here. As I said, the control bar solution is not the most attractive way to handle movement, but the tap-to-shoot mechanic is excellent. It's one thing to just touch a button. It's another to shoot an alien to death by mashing on its face. The game is not terribly long. An experienced player should get through it in just a couple hours. But that brings me right back to the price. This is cheap alien-killing fun. No, make that, this is good-looking, cheap alien-killing fun.
There is even some voice work that surprisingly seems in-place. Tommy talks to himself and compliments his abilities throughout the game, there is some repetition, but nothing that becomes annoying or overused. Weapons' fire and monster noises are clearly restrained and underpowered. It reminded me of the original Doom when viewed with current expectations. Yes, it misses the mark.

Prey Invasion possesses the potential for visceral gameplay, yet ends up far more pedestrian than its looks would have you assume. Stunning graphics and an array of control options are enough to attract your attention, but it won't hold it for as long as it should.
Then again, we don't expect much for $2.99. If anything, Prey Invasion is proof that the iPhone can handle more advanced first person shooters, but there's still a long way to go. For less than three bucks, we suggest giving it a spin. At least you'll have something pretty to show your friends.

As the quality of iPhone games ramps up, shiny graphics can only carry a game so far, and even for $2.99, we've come to expect more. A more expensive and fleshed out game is what we need, not one that feels rushed in an attempt to cash in on name brand value alone.
Prey is a step forward, and I hope to see more of this in the future (with a frame rate we can stomach). But unless game developers can push cell phone manufacturers into producing better devices, they won’t have a prayer in advancing mobile-game content.
As with it’s console brethren, Prey Invasion looks great, but the gameplay is average at best… but mainly poor. The story is bland, the game is ridiculously short and what is there is ultimately let down by poor controls. While some may point to it’s relatively low price point, I would still avoid and save up for better first person shooters on the horizon.
Prey Invasion är en skymf mot Human Heads briljanta original och ett av de sämsta Iphone-spel jag hittills testat. Undvik!
