Rage HD is an iOS game and RAGE spin-off developed and published by id Software for iPhone / iPod Touch and iPad. The game was launched on November 18, 2010. In 2011 update to version 1.11 was issued, bringing bug fixes and new features including Game Center support. Soon the version 2.0 has appeared, the game's major upgrade, and in response to 100,000 likes on the id Software's Facebook page, the developers had decided to give the game for free for one week. It is not updated for 64 Bit so it can't be played on iOS 11.

The game's plot is based on the idea of Mutant Bash show that Nicholas Raine has to star in RAGE to acquire the sponsorship letter from J.K. Stiles, but aside from the Mutant Bash TV studio, the action takes place in a number of different locations. And while some locations might as well be the part of the Wasted Garage or Authority Prison interiors, the other remind of the Shrouded Bunker and Blue Line Station. With the Episode Pack 1 (version 2.0), a few new locations were added.

Unlike RAGE that utilizes JPEG XR compression, Rage HD comes uncompressed and takes about 1.2 GB of space (0.7 for the SD version of the game), and the amount of system resources it uses due to the beautiful graphics is considerable for the portable devices.

DescriptionEdit

Rage HD is a typical first person shooter but has an added bonus. A super story line where you are the star in a post apocalyptic TV show called "Mutant Bash TV" having to battle your way through episodes with host of the show J.K. Stiles commenting on your performance throughout.

An interesting story mixed with superior graphics makes this game a hit with hundreds of users. The game comes with three episodes to make your way through with four different difficulty levels from Easy to Nightmare and each episode is graded by J.K. Stiles making the need to get a better rating at a higher level the focus of the game.

Armed with a pistol, machine gun and a shotgun, the aim is to get through all three episodes killing as many mutants, collecting as many Bash Bux and staying as alive as possible. There are a number of different types of mutants, up close and personal mutants who try to scratch your eyes out, ones that try to bash you with large weapons and ones that throw debris and bricks at you from a distance.

Due to its extreme graphics, the game uses a massive amount of memory. A huge file size of 747 MB makes this an app that is difficult to keep on your device long term.[1]
