This year has already seen the releases of quirky platformer Roll Out, the critically lauded Pix 'n' Love Rush, and, in some parts of the world, smash-hit MMORPG Yslandia bearing the BulkyPix label. And this trend of teaming up with talented indie developers to create groundbreaking iPhone games looks set to continue with a newly announced batch of upcoming titles.
If video games are to believed, our future is gonna be pretty grim. And Blue Shadow Games' App Store debut, Death Cop, which boasts cyber-genetic creatures knocking seven bells out of each other in the dust of decimated cities and against the charming backdrop of post-apocalyptic wastelands, does nothing to dispel the myth.
From the off, Full Fat's latest title addresses a niggling little improbability that has long irked me about most every game set amid a zombie apocalypse - namely, the heroic survivor's easy access to a stockpile of knives, guns, and grenades. Far more realistically, when a horde of flesh-eaters accost Zombie Flick's main protagonist - think a Saturday Night Fever era John Travolta - he must fend them off with anything he can lay his mitts on.
Boasting an intriguing art style, toe-tapping tunes and a wacky premise, The Lonely Bee Games' soon to be released iPhone game Eggs In Space is shaping up nicely. From the press release: HELP!!! The Eggs are invading and the peaceful people of Spoonville have sent you up into the cosmos to defend them in this unique tap'n'crack action game.
Playus Soft's Creatures - The First Blood does exactly what it says on the tin. No more, and no less. A space set dual-stick shooter packed with thrills but minus the frills, this is 100% focused on delivering an intense hit of last-as-long-as-you-can action and Openfeint fuelled high-score hunting.
In Beserker Games' latest, chowing down on three turds in a row transforms your protagonist into an indestructible, muscle-bound killing machine. If that sounds like the best thing ever, you might as well stop reading now, because your new favorite game has just landed in the App Store.
