Our 2011 Game of the Year, League of Evil, was released at the beginning of last year. Said company, Ravenous Games, is set to debut the sequel to their acclaimed pixel platformer after teaming up with Bulletproof Outlaws to produce a new graphical style, later this month, and they’ve posted
Trailers are one of the best marketing tactics for a game’s overall sales. A developer certainly doesn’t want to put out a trailer that bores the potential buyers, but instead maybe humors them or entices with some cliffhangers and intense gameplay. What makes this trailer, that I’m about to show
I’ve been hearing about popular games being turned into movies, particularly with the number one series on the app store, Angry Birds. Recently, a comical trailer was released by YouTube user, Rooster Teeth, which showcases some storyline added to the game’s goal of killing pigs. Check it out below! I’m
When I first got my iPod Touch 2G a little bit over 2 years ago, I remember the wonders of the app store were the two astonishing, Payback and Car Jack Streets. They were so amazing given that the iDevices were still relatively new at that point, and those two
Though I haven’t posted anything on it yet, I’ve been following the development of Ravenous Games’ (previously Cave Run, Ravenous Trivia/HD) newest work, League of Evil. I couldn’t get much off of their occasional tweets about new additions to the game, but with their steady release of screenshots every Saturday,
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is an enhanced port of the PSP version, which was a port of the DS title released last year. This version plays like a combination of both games, keeping the aspect ratio and graphics of the PSP version with the touch events from the original DS title. You play as the son of a recently murdered gang lord sent to deliver a sword, a treasured family heirloom, to your uncle in Liberty City. You are ambushed at the airport, robbed of the sword, and left for dead. Its up to you to seek revenge upon the ones who shot you and the people who murdered your father.
Doom Resurrection is based on id Software's popular first person shooter Doom 3. You are a marine stationed on a martian base when a portal to hell is accidentally opened and demons and zombies invade the base, leaving you and a handful of people as the lone survivors. The functions like a normal first person shooter, only on rails. Your character moves on a set path while you dispatch enemies and collect items.
Blades of Fury is a surprisingly good fighting game quite similar to Soul Calibur. Created by Gameloft, Blades oozes quality in every category, from the sweet visuals to online play. It even features a decent storyline! After being defeated 20 years ago, the evil Faust has risen again to reclaim the holy suit of armor. You start the game by choosing one of 6 characters (more are unlockable), both good and bad, each with unique moves and interesting motivations for wanting the armor.
Sneezies is a puzzle game that I definitely feel falls in the "absolutely must have" category. The charming and colorful characters combined with an unbelievably simple idea make for dozens of hours of addicting fun. The fact that it's so simple, yet it can still be quite challenging make it, quite literally, a game for all ages.
Ramp Champ is a extremely addicting and interesting take on the classic arcade concept of skee ball. There have been several versions of this style game to hit the App Store, but this is by far my favorite. It's surprising that such a simple idea could be so entertaining, but trust me. Ramp Champ will steal hours and hours of your life away.
