So, I tried playing My Brute yesterday evening. It got to the title screen, but the button wouldn’t respond, so I couldn’t progress. I tried a few times, rebooted my iPhone, finally got it working, only to find that I hadn’t quite left it twenty-four hours since I last played, so I couldn’t do anything.
Later that evening my iPhone informed me that there was an update, to version 1.7. It adds a new arena and, um, some other stuff I don’t remember, but which didn’t sound especially interesting. By this point I was actually able to play, so I finally got to see my dog in action.
I actually won a few of my fights last night. The dog doesn’t do much damage, but it does add up – and he’s good at taking a hit or two for you.
It’s worth noting, too, that I’m only using one character, when I could have three, so I could actually be playing more if I felt like it. (The game lets you have nine in total, but only if you recruit people to unlock the extra slots.

Here’s a picture of me defeating someone in a fight. Enjoy it, it doesn’t happen often. I’m actually quite excited about this game, even though the way it encourages you to spam codes around means it’s a big festering pile of crap. Why? Well, since I started playing the web version I’ve been wanting a
Action shot! Shame the action is me running away. Of course, I’m just running back to my side of the screen after attempting an attack, rather than running away from the fight. Although, given how many fights I’m losing, I’m beginning to wish there was a way to retreat from fights before they’re over. Maybe
I play web version of My Brute every day, so was interested in the iPhone version. There were two problems, though. 1) The iPhone version locks a lot of its content unless you recruit pupils – i.e. persuade other people with the game to type in your code, rather than anyone else’s. As I wasn’t
Terminator Salvation Lite – A good effort, with the best use of a virtual d-pad I’ve found, but slightly over-ambitious. Thought has been put into providing a lot of different control options, but none of them quite feel comfortable. Metal Gear Solid Touch Lite – Very much enjoyed this.
