As good as the console Devil May Cry games are, I was really hoping for a small screen rock star. Needless to say, Refrain didn't quite make it to 11.

We’ve got a new champion, Street Fighter IV!

By way of a price drop to $0.99, Capcom has taken over the much coveted number one overall app spot. Last I heard, this could mean $60,000 in sales per day or more. Angry Birds has fallen to number 2 currently. The first time in a while it’s been out of the top spot.

How long can Street Fighter IV hold on to the number one spot? What do you think, will Angry Birds attack and get it back? Will Tetris slide its way past both to number 1? We’ll keep an eye on it.

I don’t know why, but adding “zombies” to any genre of app seems to instantly make it cooler. So I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised to see that yet another zombie game is making its debut—though Capcom’s Zombie Cafe adds a unique twist. Instead of killing zombies…you’re employing them! The app’s description lays out the basic premise nicely:

It’s hard to find good help, which is why you’ve partnered with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build your café empire.

Makes perfect sense to me! Anyway, as the manager of your new Zombie Cafe, you’re responsible for catering to your customers’ every whim and milking them for their money. It seems to be based on restaurant sims like Diner Dash, but with zombie-themed additions. Zombie-themed fare has replaced normal diner dishes, so for example, you’ll be getting a “handburger and flies” instead of a normal burger. And if you’re short on staff, you can even inject your customers with a toxin to turn them into more zombie minions. (What was that about evil corporations again?) However, by the same token, if you work a zombie too hard it may decide to munch on your customers, which is hardly good for business. Additionally, you can send your zombie minions to attack your competition, stealing toxin and recipes from other cafes.

These combined undead twists add up to a humorous almost-parody of a rather repetitive genre. If Diner Dash and its clones feel just too vanilla for you, a helping of brainy humor might be just what you need. Plus, it’s nice to see a zombie game that adds more than just a “skin.” Too often zombies replace humans just because they look more menacing, but these undead waiters actually do change the gameplay.

While Capcom hasn’t released a gameplay trailer, check out the video below for a revolting teaser clip:



Should you wish to try your hand at zombie-restaurant-management, Zombie Cafe is lurking in the App Store for the low, low price of free.

Dante and Nero have spent a long time slaying demons and battling evil on consoles, but now the ghoul-hunting duo is poised to make their grand debut on the iPhone. Capcom has confirmed that iOS will be getting its very own edition of Devil May Cry 4, subtitled Refrain.

The smartphone edition of the game will follow the same plot as the console edition, with players taking control of newcomer Nero rather than series stalwart Dante. Don’t sweat it, playing as Nero feels very familiar to anyone who’s tried out the franchise previously, and he acquits himself quite well. Nero’s arsenal consists of a gigantic sword, dual pistols and a wicked demon hand that can dish out some serious punishment. Players who vary their combos between weapons and rack up big hit streaks will be rewarded with a flood of red orbs which can be used to upgrade each piece of Nero’s arsenal.

The game will consist of 10 levels and Nero’s movement and attacks are controlled via an onscreen virtual joystick and three attack buttons on the lower right hand side of the screen.While this opens the door to a number of quick and hopefully effortless combos we’ll have to reserve judgment until we play the game ourselves to see how well it works. The DMC series has long been predicated on careful timing and fluid combos, so we hope the same precision and attention to detail has been built into this version.

In addition to the story mode Capcom has confirmed that later updates will include Dante as a playable character as well as new challenge levels for the truly hardcore. Hopefully these extra stages will satisfy fans who thrive on DMC’s sometimes insane difficulty level where one wrong move means certain death. Hopefully the story mode will be a bit more forgiving for the rest of us. At any rate the game goes on sale later this month for $6.99 with updates to follow soon thereafter. Good luck out there everyone and happy hunting!

Capcom has today announced their new game Li’l Pirates, scheduled to plunder iOS devices later this month. The game is billed as a sort of action/exploration/RPG hybrid which will allow players to take control of a ship and crew, and their plunder and pillage their way to bigger and better ships as well as earning a name as the biggest scalawag on the Seven Seas. Capcom is promising over 100 ship and character upgrades to be available at launch as DLC, and that number is sure to swell while the game is on the market.

“The release of these titles marks a new direction for the company as we complement our traditional premium pricing model with freemium social games for our customers,” said Midori Yuasa, President and COO, Capcom Interactive, Inc. “By creating a line of casual freemium games we can appeal to consumers not serviced by our more ‘hardcore’ IP and cast a much wider net over the burgeoning smartphone app marketplace.”

At first glance the game sounds a lot like Sid Meier’s Pirates, so we’ll have to wait until we get our hands on the final build to see if the title can live up to that lofty standard. If nothing else, pirate games are basically always instantly appealing just because pirates are pretty great.

Capcom also mentioned plans to launch Zombie Cafe in November as well as an as-yet-unnamed children’s entertainment property in November. According to the description:

“In Zombie Café the player partners with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build their café empire. To thrive, players must prepare food, direct their zombie staff and manage supplies. If the competition gets too fierce they can always direct their zombie workers to attack a neighboring café and steal their secret recipes”

Both Li’l Pirates and Zombie Cafe will be free to play but will offer paid extra content to make the game easier or more “complete.” Publishers have been flirting with the idea of free base games with paid DLC for a while now, so we’ll have to wait and see what Capcom’s take on the idea looks like.

Five For Friday: Week of September 24, 2010

Dark Void Zero:
Dark Void on the consoles may have bombed on the review charts, but the iPhone version is an utterly different story. 8-bit visuals, achievements, online leaderboards, and so much more make this side scrolling shooter a highly addictive game. Capcom, being the devilishly nice company they are, is even feeling a bit generous and letting you get it for a lousy $0.99 this weekend.

Enjoy all 14 levels and 8 bosses in this side scrolling shooter. Even better, this game is rocking a sweet sale right now. Capcom, we thank you for giving us a reason to skip out on chores this weekend.

Ghosts’N Goblins Gold Knights II Review

Ghosts’N Goblins Gold Knights II Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
25 years later, Ghosts'N Goblins is still going strong. Now if they could just move those virtual controls out of the way of the game.....

Read The Full Review »

Capcom is a company that is notorious for churning out difficult yet entertaining arcade games. Though it may be hard to believe, they may have reached their pinnacle back in 1985, when they released the original Ghosts’N Goblins in arcades worldwide. To say the game was difficult would be like saying that Poltergeist wasn’t a family film. In fact, some have gone as far as to call it the most difficult arcade game of all time.

So when it was announced that the game was getting a newly revamped sequel on the iPhone, I was understandably skeptical about whether it would even be approachable by the casual gaming masses. However, a press release for the game hopes to set you mind at ease over those concerns.

Capcom Mobile's 1942: First Strike doesn't quite do their arcade classic justice, especially with dodgy controls that are hard to calibrate. There are better top-down shooters out there.

Phoenix Wright is a good port of a fantastic lawyer-sim/point-and-click adventure/logic puzzle DS game, complete with all the content, humor, and fun. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney feels like a natural fit for the iPhone, and its humor is undiminished by age. If only it didn't drain my battery so quickly!

Street Fighter IV

Street Fighter IV

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
At a fraction of the price of its console version, CAPCOM’S iPhone port of Street Fighter IV features beautiful graphics and visceral game play. The iPhone version is very impressive and remains loyal to the franchise, but its game play, while solid, does slightly suffer from the virtual-control scheme, but not enough to negatively affect overall game play/value.

Read The Full Review »

street_fighter_iv_logoYup, you read that headline right. Capcom has announced that Street Fighter IV is coming to the iPhone, and better yet, this won’t be some buggy port: IGN says that Capcom has spent months working on the iPhone version’s control scheme alone, and multiple configurations are said to be included. Also expect to see some familiar graphics, because visual assets will be drawn directly from current-generation games. While the characters will be scaled down, loss of detail should be minimal. This is the real deal, folks!

As for the fighters themselves, Capcom has yet to announce the entire roster. So far we know that Ryu and Ken will be present, as well as new fighters from Street Fighter IV and old favorites from past installments. Each character’s move set will also be complete, including their Ultra moves and all animations.

Good news comes as far as modes go, too: in addition to a training (“Dojo”) mode and tournament mode, Bluetooth-enabled multiplayer will also be included. Heck yes! Half the fun of Street Fighter has always come from pulverizing your friends, and it’s great to see it included here as well.

It definitely looks like Capcom is taking this release seriously, as they should. Street Fighter IV is much-loved and critically acclaimed, and Capcom can make the transition to the App Store successfully it’ll be a great showcase of the iPhone platform as well as the fighting series itself. Street Fighter IV is currently slated for a March release, and we’ll keep you updated in the coming weeks. Be sure to check out IGN’s gallery!

I want to like Mega Man on the iPhone, I really do, but I just can't. While the core of the game is the same, the experience is tainted by its broken controls and its lack of difficulty. You definitely won't be kicking yourself (too hard) for buying this one, but the game may end up being the 148th app on your iPhone.
