Apple Games Features Cold War
12:01 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The latest Apple Games feature examines Mindware Studios' Cold War, a unique stealth based action game. In Cold War players take the role of Matthew Carter, a journalist who uses stealth and trickery to complete his dangerous assignments in Moscow. A key feature of the game is Carter's ability to cobble together useful tools from items he finds during his adventures.

Carter’s basic tools include rubber bullets, ether-soaked rags that will knock out an enemy, ether mines that knock out anyone nearby when they explode, and a “box of tricks” that attracts enemies’ attention. From there, he can build more complex items, such as an expanded gun magazine made from cans or a camera zoom lens constructed of appliance parts.

His gun, which fires regular or rubber bullets, isn’t his only weapon, however. Carter can also assemble a makeshift sling that he uses to launch grenades, tracking devices, and darts that knock an enemy unconscious or cause confusion.

Of course, his greatest asset is his ability to sneak past enemies without alerting them to his presence. Gunshots and explosions will bring nearby guards running, so it’s typically better to slip past an immediate threat, or knock him unconscious. Anyone you knock out will wake up eventually, but you can give them anesthetics that prolong their sleep.

The rest of the feature can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
