Here’s a news item that’s rather cool, although I’m just a little bit too lazy to do much more than paste some info from the press release and link a recent gameplay trailer video.
“Germany-based publisher Deep Silver FISHLABS and developer Animation Arts will launch the successful point-and-click adventure Secret Files Tunguska on the App Store on July 17th, 2014. The mobile version of the multi-award-winning mystery title will run on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and turn the player’s smartphone or tablet into the setting of a global conspiracy of epic proportions.”
“The initial purchase of Secret Files Tunguska for the set price of 4.99 US-$ / 4.49 EUR / 2.99 GBP / 169 RUR grants full access to the game’s entire narrative, including all content and features. Consequently, players do not have to unlock additional episodes or story angles via in-app purchase.”
Ok, fair enough, I’ll add a bit of opinion here… I remember playing this game on PC about 7 years ago and it was a fairly decent point-n-click style adventure. It was also released later on Wii and DS.
I’m planning on reviewing the iOS version; I’ll let you know how this game ends up playing on a tablet and iPod screen. Hopefully some of the “hunt the pixel” type puzzles won’t be as tricky as I’m thinking they might be.
If you have ever wanted to go head-to-head in a shoot-em-up game on your iPad (or iPhone) against a friend (or your 6 year old son), I’d like to introduce you to Dragonfly Fleet, the upcoming iOS shooter from Ramble Interactive. There are four modes, two each of solo and 2-player. Dragonfly Fleet’s Solo Flight mode plays like a traditional vertically scrolling shooter, complete with delightful relative touch control and a dynamic choice of left or right side fire button.
In Team Flight mode, there are two playable dragonflies with touch control limited to a small area around the player insect. Although this is co-op mode, care must be taken as your dragonflies can be damaged by player shots and collisions.
Gridshock is a variation of the shooter theme, with a grid of destructible blocks covering most of the screen in addition to the randomly spawning enemies. The 2-player version of this mode is called Faceoff, with your opponent facing you across the grid.
Although I don’t have a release date to share, Dragonfly Fleet is looking very finished and should be on the app store soon. I’ll be posting a review of this game as soon as it is released.
First of all, you need to know that SOS in the title could mean Sheep On Skateboards. But it probably won’t, and that’s what makes the limited available information about this game just so fascinating.
The only real clue anyone has at the moment is that it looks a bit like Jetpac.
And Jetpac totally ruled.
When you’re down the pub later, nudge the person standing next to you at the bar and ask them, “What do you know about Air Supply – SOS?” I bet you a fiver they know less than I do. Forget Titanfall, start believing the hype for AS-SOS.
It’s hard not to get excited about this one…
Hailed as “a next-gen for action-adventure games for mobile”, Godfire is currently in development with a fairly loose “later this year” launch being promised. The official website is still very much in teaser mode but there is enough media available to hint that this one could be something special.
This looks like it should be fun, or annoying, depending on how significant the IAPs are going to be.
“Devious Dungeon is a medieval action platformer with randomized dungeons. Fight your way through each level locating the key to open the portal. Slay enemies, earn experience, level up, and collect loot!”
The game should be on the app store Wednesday 6th or Thursday 7th, depending on where you live. I’ll be reviewing it here soon.
