Aha, I think I've cracked the recipe OrangePixel used for creating "Stardash." It goes something like this. Step 1: start with "Super Mario Bros." Step 2: take away everything that helped Mario survive, and see how the player does. Needless to say, you'll want to go into this platformer with a tough-as-nails attitude!
Hot on the heels of FatCow Games' "Idyllic," XperimentalZ Games is sprinting toward the finish line of yet another project that injects some depth into the side-scrolling genre. Oh, did we mention this one has lightsabers? Naturally we sought a hands-on preview when we found out that little detail!
In our latest hands-on preview we get a sneak peek at Retromite's upcoming iOS debut, "Robotriot." If you're a side-scrolling platformer fan, this one is aiming straight at your heart, as it hearkens back to an era that many would agree was the genre's golden age.
We love it when devs throw tradition out the window and try something completely new! Now, if Studio Yomi could just come up with a replacement for traditional level design principles to go with their brand spankin' new platforming interface, they'd have a real classic on their hands.
When the netherworld messes up their plan to become human, a Bear and a Tiger go on a rampage to kick some demonic tail. "CLAW" may not have all the depth needed to compete with classic side-scrolling beat 'em ups, but it proves that the genre is workable on iOS, and it sure is pretty to look at!
Like the eyeball-equipped flora that populate it, Mystic Forest is an eccentric creature indeed. It's certainly not without its flaws at present, but worth a look if you could go for a puzzle-adventure and don't mind putting on some platforming shoes.
Lakoo, perhaps best known for the MMORPG "Empire Online," is trying its hand at an iOS exclusive, single-player Action RPG with the upcoming "Brave Code." Lakoo was generous enough to let our grubby little hands near a preview build, and take it from us: this is one to watch if you're looking for an Action RPG that completely shakes up the traditional genre formula!
