I’m sure plenty of people were a bit dubious when Hitman GO was announced for iOS. I’ll even admit that I had my doubts. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised when I managed to see it in action.

Hitman GO is certainly not your typical Hitman game. It’s also not the kind of Hitman game I think most of us were expecting. It’s actually a puzzle game in which players must figure out how to move Agent 47 so that he can avoid guards and either exit the level or take out his targets. The entire game has this spectacular diorama/board game aesthetic, too.

The really interesting thing is how Square Enix Montréal has managed to incorporate so many of the series’ most notable mechanics (stealth, disguises, dual pistols, etc) into such a drastically different setting. And it all looks like it works surprisingly well. If that weren’t enough, there’s also going to be a special unlockable level designed around one of Bloody Money’s most memorable missions: Curtains Down.

Hitman GO will be releasing on the App Store this Thursday, April 17, for $4.99.

Now Available: R.B.I. Baseball is a New Mobile Take on the Classic Baseball Game Formula

Posted by on April 9th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

R.B.I. Baseball, known as the most popular Baseball game to ever be released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, has received a reboot via the modern smartphone. The original game licensed players from the MLB, and the same is true for R.B.I. Baseball 14, which features 480 of the current lineup of players. You can play the game, with visuals just slightly better than its predecessor, in a variety of modes including season, postseason, and exhibition.

The game features all 30 MLB teams, and you can play an entire 9-inning game in just 20 minutes. It also features easy-to-use “classic” controls, allowing you to control the game with what is basically just two buttons. The game is also very realistic, featuring players whose appearance and abilities are based on real stats. Finally, there is unlockable in-game content such as legacy jerseys that you can unlock by playing season mode.

You can get R.B.I. Baseball 14 on the App Store for $4.99.

Cocologics has updated its ProCamera 7 app with several enhancements. From the update note:

One of our most feature packed updates to date with new TIFF file saving, Open-in functionality, high-res Instagram support and Shadows and Highlights correction tools.

With the new TIFF file format you can now save and edit maximum quality, truly lossless photographs in ProCamera. There are two TIFF formats available, uncompressed TIFF or TIFF LZW for smaller file sizes. You can change the file format in Settings > More > File Format.

Our new sharing functions make it even easier to get your photos online and in print. The Instagram SquarePrepare function now supports high-res exports – making your #ProCamera7 photos sharper than ever. The new Open In option lets you easily transfer photos between supporting editing and sharing apps. Open In supports TIFF functionality. We’ve also improved our DropBox compatibility and added Vimeo sharing. The new print option makes it possible for users to wirelessly print their photos at home or with print services that support the function.

We had an opportunity to review the app late last year; ProCamera 7 is available on the App Store for $4.99.

I know Jen Allen just reviewed Perils of Man: Chapter 1, but that was just the first chapter. I was able to sit down and learn quite a bit more about what’s planned for the iPad adventure game, and I have to say it’s looking pretty intriguing.

As was pretty obvious at the end of the first chapter, this story is far from over. In fact, it’s really just the beginning. Perils of Man will have a total of seven chapters before all is said and done, but unlike many other episodic games they won’t be released every few weeks. Instead, all of the chapters will be available at once for a flat fee of $4.99.

The glimpse I was given of the second chapter also revealed an interesting new gameplay mechanic (Spoiler Alert – you have been warned): risk. Long story short, you’ll be able to shift into a first-person perspective and see what objects in the world are inherently dangerous. Then do tuff to make these objects less of a threat, of course. Basically it’s a system that visually quantifies risk.

The remaining chapters of Perils of Man should be available in early April for a grand total of $4.99.

Granted it’s only been a day, but I’ve already found myself surprised. On the surface Ninja Pizza Girl seems like it might end up being a fairly typical endless runner, but in reality it’s something altogether different.

There’s no “endlessness” to it, but rather a series of 24 levels with branching paths and secret areas. What really stuck out to me, though, is Disparity Games’ different approach to a health bar. Rather than taking damage, Gemma (the main character) will lose some of her self esteem as rival ninjas push her down and laugh at her. Seriously, they actually do that. The more Gemma’s feelings get hurt, the more washed-out the screen will start to look, and if she gets too upset she’ll simply give up.

There’s still a lot of work to be done on Ninja Pizza Girl when it eventually releases at the end of the year – with separate iPhone (estimated at $2.99) and iPad (estimated at $4.99) versions available – but what’s there is looking pretty good. If nothing else, it’s certainly refreshing to see a game that’s willing to explore less typical themes and take a new approach to player “health.”
