Cobra Command iPhone port features best animated helicopter explosions we've seen today

When Revolutionary Concepts first unveiled its enhanced iPhone port of Data East's relatively obscure FMV shooter Cobra Command, all we had to stare at were a few proof-of-concept screens and a tentative October release date. That date has been pushed to "early to mid-November" as the developers anticipate submitting the game to Apple this week. For right now, however, we have footage.

After the break, you can see Cobra Command in motion. It's a bit more complicated than the Space Ace or Dragon's Lair–type FMV game, and consequently the iPhone version uses both a virtual joystick (for targeting) and the iPhone's accelerometer (for steering the helicopter).
