Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is one gorgeous-looking action/adventure game that’s just about ready to storm the App Store.

You’ll be guiding Prometheus through seven different acts and three possible difficulties, hacking up bad guys the whole way. He’ll also be collecting lots of gear, which is all upgradable and usually includes some sort of special ability such as causing poison damage. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I did think it as pretty cool how the armor sets will actually start to look different as you upgrade them.

I’m also curious to see how players take to the leaderboards. Normally I’m not much of a high score buff, but the leaderboards for Godfire are actually split across all versions of the game. So it’ll be interesting to see how the competition pans out – and will no doubt spark more physical vs. virtual control debates. To which I say “Bring it on!”

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus should be releasing on the App Store in the second Quarter of this year, and it’ll be a premium title.

Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering is an RPG with great graphics and Infinity Blade-like combat.

Read The Full Review »

Mail.Ru Games, developers of popular Legend: Legacy of Dragons and Allods Online, have released a new RPG, Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering. The game takes players through the world of Haradan to defeat the evil Sovering.

Mail.Ru Games is describing Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering as “an entirely new breed of RPG.” The combat in the game can be done in one of three different ways including tapping, swiping, and combo-hit controls. Players also occasionally experience in-fight minigames that include a memory game, “collect the mana,” and fighting the “evil eye.” Other mini-games (not in-fight) deal with finding treasure and lockpicking.

The game contains five heroes to choose from. Those champions have over 100 enemies to fight in 15 different locations. Spellcasting includes four different schools of magic with 12 different battle spells. Heroes, of course, can equip themselves with various types of armor and weapons.

Spellcasting looks a bit similar to Infinity Blade, where players draw the spells they’re trying to cast. The shapes the players draw even look similar (why change what works?).

The game is free. Even for those not interested in playing, please download the game and let me know in the comments if the warrior on the title screen looks familiar (Bruce Willis, anyone?)

After a launch plagued with bugs and lag, as well as numerous negative reviews from both the users and the press, EA has chosen to remove Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the App Store. The news was broken by IGN, who obtained the following statement from EA.

“EA Mobile is committed to delivering mobile entertainment experiences that are on par with the content and quality users have come to expect from their favorite EA gaming brands. To this end, we have decided to remove Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the App Store and are currently re-evaluating the app in response to the consumer feedback we’ve received. We thank all the fans who have downloaded the game to date.”

We’re glad to hear that EA has done the responsible thing and pulled the title. Even though the game has done some damage by being available but virtually unplayable for two weeks, we’re hopeful that EA can figure out what went wrong and get the game back up in a timely manner. As yet there is no word if users who already downloaded the game will have their purchases refunded or if they will be compensated in some other manner.

Death Rally Update Hits App Store

death rallyRemedy Entertainment, best known for the Max Payne series of videogames and Alan Wake, recently unleashed Death Rally to the app store. Death Rally is a top-down, combat racing game, and is actually a remake of the company’s first title from 1996. It features a single-player career mode where you can earn money to upgrade vehicles and their accompanying weapons. The core goal is to win races by any means necessary, including wrecking your opponents. There are a few cameo appearances along the way by John Gore of Minigore fame, Barry Wheeler from Alan Wake, and videogame legend Duke Nukem himself, all as boss racers.

From the onset, Remedy released Death Rally as a universal app, and has promised regular, free updates. It has since quickly climbed the app store charts, and the first update has just arrived short of two weeks. Along with bug fixes and other technical enhancements, version 1.1 includes:

New car:
-Unlock the power of the Wraith, a fast and furious NEW SPORTSCAR!

New weapons:
-STRIKER: Dish out massive damage with a weapon that fires multiple rockets!
-LASER SIGHT: Aim and destroy the enemy with more accuracy than ever!

New challenge:
-ALL NITRO CHALLENGE: Do you feel the need for speed?

Remedy has hinted at more updates to come very soon. Besides new tracks and cars, the addition of multiplayer has been promised (both local and online), as well as an appearance by a certain Mighty Eagle. The game originally shipped with 5 vehicle and 5 weapon types, all of which can be upgraded, as well as 5 core track types that are rotated and re-used throughout.

For anyone interested in the original PC game, Remedy has issued a free, re-release of it that has been tailored to run on modern hardware. You can download it from the Remedy Entertainment website.

Gamevil has just released a new teaser for their upcoming game HYBRID: Eternal Whisper, which is set to release in the US App Store this Fall. The product of the same team behind the amazing RPG Zenonia, HYBRID has a lot of promise. Gamevil’s calling HYBRID a “a new breed of stylish action adventure,” and it looks like it’ll focused more on combat and special moves than on a storyline. There will be 150 levels, a complex storyline, and plenty of challenge. If Zenonia’s success and level of polish is anything to go by, HYBIRD should delight the hardcore gaming crowd.

Gamevil doesn’t have a huge App Store presence on this side of the ocean yet (their only games with English localizations are Zenonia and Baseball Superstars) but from what I understand, they’ve got a solid presence in Korea. Like their other two US releases, HYBRID will be a port from a popular Korean title.

F.A.S.T. from SGN is a very different game that this developers usual offerings. They are best known for the MMOs such as Agency Wars (App Info) and Mafia: Respect and Retaliation (App Info) as well as their Wii-like sports games like SGN Golf (App Info) and iBowl (App Info).

F.A.S.T. stands for Fleet Air Superiority Training and is a really killer arcade flight simulator. The game supports both single player and up to 4 players in dogfight mode over wifi.

There are multiple unlockable planes all the way up to the B2 Stealth bomber. As you progress in the missions, and beat them in under the required time, you will unlock planes which will give you more power for successive levels.

Once the app is updated to take advantage of in-app purchasing in OS 3.0, expect many more purchasable missions and equipment.

The game looks impressive, is very responsive, but the controls take a little getting used to. Take a look at the trailer below for a better idea of the furious gameplay.

Priced at the higher end for a game, $9.99, F.A.S.T. is available now. A lite version with only one plane is planned.

FaceFighter

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
FaceFighter reminds me of early versions of Mortal Kombat. I had a lot of fun with that game, especially when friends and beer were involved. I never got great at it because of all the buttons, combos, and fatality moves were hard for me to remember (was it the beer?). Thankfully, FaceFighter solves all of these problems and has simple controls (4 buttons), simple rules (hit & don’t get hit), and fast gameplay.
