Description

Ever play a slot machine that played back?

In OneArm Battle, you and your iPhone (or iPod Touch) compete to win money by spinning a six-reel slot machine in a contest of luck and courage. Each time you spin, you lock any reels you want that score money. Then you can spin the remaining reels. If you lock them all (called a SWEEP), they unlock for even more money; but if you don’t add to your score each spin, you FAIL - and lose everything you made that turn.

You alternate turns with your machine, which narrates the battle in a matter-of-fact but competitive voice. And the game is made even more interesting by the Goal Door - a revolving parade of special rules that change each turn. Most Goals offer a money bonus that tempt you to push for the Sweep - but some FORCE you to keep rolling. You may get a chance to BOP TILL YOU DROP, guaranteeing you’ll win money that turn; the machine may go OUT OF ORDER, costing you your turn... and that’s just the beginning.

There are nine varieties of machines in OneArm Battle - and each one is infinitely replayable. Come on, your iPhone or iPod Touch is waiting to play - are you up for it?

Rated 12+ solely because of simulated gambling. The graphics and sounds are all completely family-friendly, unless you are offended by the machine saying "DANG IT!" when it Fails.

OneArm Battle is a remake of a highly successful shareware game written by this same author for the Apple ][gs in 1989, published by ReliefWare Central. It takes the principles of many classic dice games like Ten Thousand, Zilch, and Oh Shoot. If you like Cosmic Wimpout, Dungeon Dice, Fill or Bust, Risk & Roll 2000, Farkle, or Farkel, you'll be right at home here.

Specifications:

•Requires iPhone OS 3.1 for iPhone (any model) or iPod Touch (any model).

•Offers 9 different selectable slot machines with 12 different Goals and four different reel types (including a Wild Card and other surprises).

•Volume controls available through onscreen slider and thumb switches.

•Five selectable speeds for reel spinning.

•Two independent sound controls for Goal and Scoring sound effects.

•Winning score can be set anywhere from $2500 - $15000.

•Three separate AI personalities: Timid, Cagey, and Daring.

Good, nostalgic fun

:
As someone who played One Arm Battle on the Apple IIgs as a kid, I found this app to be some good, nostalgic fun. A few things have changed, of course, but the core of the game is still the same. It's still a fun slot game where you play against the computer (multiplayer, either on the same phone, via BT/wifi, or even through an online server would be awesome) with various themes, powerups, etc. Lock in 50s or 100s, triples of various fruits, or other combos. Still trying to get a supersweep, but I'm sure I'll land one eventually. The "bop 'til ya drop" audio is even the same as the old IIgs version.

Don't let that deter you if you never played the old one, though. This one is still good for passing the time with some decent entertainment, and there's enough playability here to say that it's worth a whopping $.99, so go ahead and give this app a whirl!

BONUS: If you remember some of Ken's other games from the IIgs era, such as Plunder, then purchasing this one might help exhume such titles and others that Ken has written from the tombs and crypts of ages past and onto your iPhone. I can't wait to find the Brunswick Pearl!

Scifry

:
Fun,simple, but strategic...a great game to fill in some spare time in the day with a bit of leisure! With a few touches, I can set this game up to be the level I want. Found a cool Easter egg as well. Worth the small charge.

5/5 stars

OneArm Battle is awesome

:
This is one of those games that just rocks because of how easy it is to play. Need to kill a little time? Just start playing this game and see how fast time flies while you try to win against your phone. The graphics aren't anything mind blowing but they really are fun and the over all game play is addicting.

I love playing this game!
