Finally a full features FPS game is available for the iPhone and iPod touch, providing Unreal Tournament like gameplay. Villain announces the release of Archetype, its intense new online multiplayer first-person shooter game developed exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch, is now available in the App Store. Here is more info:

The game delivers players from all around the world an intense, high quality console-style FPS experience scaled to fit in their pockets through the popular iPhone and iPod touch platforms. Up to ten gamers can play a team deathmatch anywhere, anytime and with anyone. The ability to instantly add and challenge buddies makes it easy to start a match in seconds with new friends or old adversaries. Archetype's portable iPwnage offers online FPS gaming on the go over Wi-Fi, 3G and even Edge.

Starting as lowly cadets, players join team-based deathmatches and level up to earn higher ranks as they build a reputation, earn experience points and win medals. With two to five players per team, up to ten players can battle online across Archetype's five large multiplayer maps - from Wrath's vertical combat and Invidia's close quarters firefights to Acdia's sprawling, unsymmetrical layout. The game features six unique weapon types ranging from rapid-fire guns, devastating missile launchers, the brutal melee axe and two distinct grenade types including a "split-strike" grenade that splits in two every time it bounces, dealing wider damage to take out opposing squads. Players wreak havoc using the game's precise dual joystick-style controls, bringing the best aspects of console shooters to iPhone and iPod touch.

The game's robust FPS feature set includes player rank-based team matchmaking to ensure balanced teams, comprehensive buddy lists and radar-based enemy tracking to help players coordinate team-based attacks. For those who want to play on a larger screen, the game is fully iPad-compatible.

The game sells for $2.99 and is available now on the iTunes App Store:
