Uncover alien mysteries in cross-genre side-scroller Deliria

Posted by Jessica Famularo on November 22nd, 2017

If the Alien franchise taught us anything, it’s that landing on a strange planet at the behest of a faceless corporation is probably asking for trouble. And Eldritch Game’s Deliria doesn’t prove otherwise.

In 2107, Dimension LG7 is rich with Delirium, a powerful element which scientists are keen to exploit. You’re tasked with establishing a mining camp, but upon waking from stasis, discover most of your crew has disappeared and interdimensional creatures are crawling your way.

Deliria is a mix of base-building and side-scrolling adventure. Using the limited resources at your disposal, you’ve got to build and upgrade the defences of your base so it can withstand attack. Meanwhile, track down your missing crewmembers (because it would be mean not to) and hire mercenaries to repel the hostile inhabitants. Along the way, you can collect information about Deliria’s history and the fate that befell the previous miners on Dimension LG7. You can also harness some of the dimension’s power to use against the enemy and ensure the survival of your crew.

Deliria is a short side-scroller with base-building and exploration at its heart. Its hand-drawn graphics and 2D animation add a certain retro charm and comes with a great price tag. For a little slice of indie sci-fi, download it from Google Play and the App Store.

Swing skilfully in new physics-based platformer OCMO

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 16th, 2017

Sometimes it’s the most difficult of obstacles that can be the most rewarding. One game hoping to prove this is OCMO, the new tough but fair platformer from developers Team Ocmo. Primed to set every speedrunner’s pulse racing, as an otherworldly black octopus with a hunger for bunnies you’re tasked to swing your way to success.

Launching globally for iOS devices following a successful limited release in other territories, OCMO is aiming to redefine what the hardcore platformer on mobile can be by way of intuitive touch controls. With a setup that gives you great grasp of the titular creature’s tendons, you’ll touch, tap, and swipe your way through many a misty cavern and wobbly woodland in a bid to be the best and claim your prize.

With 80 jam-packed levels full of dangers to dodge and obstacles to overcome, OCMO will take time and dedication to learn, but working your way through the levels is intended to be a reward in itself. An instant respawn mechanic makes light work of letting you replay stages generously quickly, so it’s easy to undertake another run to maintain any established momentum.

OCMO aims to be all about immersing yourself in the movement of the creature, making mastering the game’s mechanics not necessary, but fulfilling. Consider the physics around you, then pull and reach with your tentacles to complete the stages in time and you’ll unlock many hidden secrets and boss fights.

Swing your way to success in physics-based platforming fun. OCMO is available to download for iOS platforms.
