Grokion Is a Great Platformer for iPhone

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Metroid series, both the 2D and 3D incarnations. I’ve wanted something Metroid-like for the iPhone for some time now, and it looks like I’ve gotten my wish. Grokion is a platformer with a very familiar feel. You unlock abilities, find energy expansion packs, and navigate in a technology filled world. Still, it’s a game all of its own, remaining different enough to provide a new experience for the player. And that experience is an enjoyable one. The graphics are colorful and detailed; look great on my 1st generation iPod Touch, and are apparently also optimized for the iPhone 4’s Retina display. The story slowly reveals itself, and it quite intriguing.
And here’s some great news: it’s just 99ยข. I’d pay more than a buck for this game, but you’ll want to grab it now while it’s on sale.
Download it here (iTunes link).
