Danmaku Unlimited 3 – coming to iOS

June 30, 2017

I’m not even going out on a limb here, because this is guaranteed – Danmaku Unlimited 3 is going to completely rule on iOS. August is looking great so far – Boyka: Undisputed on the 1st, DU3 on the 10th. I might even review DU3, even though all my free time these days is devoted to writing and spectacularly failing to market my novels.

Secret Files Tunguska – coming to iOS on July 17th

June 30, 2014

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.

For more info on the title and the people behind it, visit the official websites of Secret Files Tunguska (http://secretfiles.deepsilver.com/en/index.php and Deep Silver (http://www.deepsilver.com/).

Dragonfly Fleet preview – iOS multi-mode shooter

April 7, 2014

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.

Air Supply – SOS … Believe the lack of hype

March 14, 2014

as sos 3

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.

March 4, 2014

It’s hard not to get excited about this one…

Godfire_Prometheus

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.

Devious Dungeon (iOS) coming this week

March 3, 2014

game_devious

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.

Toki Tori 2+ (PC / Steam) on sale

February 13, 2014

The original Toki Tori is a classic puzzle platformer, released on multiple platforms and it’s one of my favourite genre games. The sequel is currently on sale on Steam (PC). Here’s a link to the game on the Steam store: http://store.steampowered.com/app/201420/?snr=1_7_15__13

tokitori2sale

The game has a whopping 75% price reduction, dropping it to just under 3 quid. At the time of writing, you still have almost two whole days to take advantage of this sale.

It’s gorgeous looking, has great controls and a very cute style that takes everything that was cool and fun about the original and expands or improves on it. The individual levels are gone, replaced with a huge map with large zones linked by portals.

It’s a whole load of fun and it’s currently very cheap. These days, those are good things. I can’t do anything else; I’ve told you about it, now it’s up to you. Here’s the official description and another picture…

Toki Tori 2+ is a Metroidvania style puzzle adventure. There are no tutorials, there’s no hand-holding, no-one tells you what to do in Toki Tori 2+. The fun is in exploring and overcoming the obstacles of the lush forest island on your own merit.
