Interactive "Comic Gamebook" Light Apprentice Coming to the App Store in March

Posted by Rob Rich on February 12th, 2014

I've been noticing that interactive books are steadily becoming more popular, as are interactive comics. Gamebooks also seem to be making a pretty strong comeback. But "comic gamebooks?" I'd never really imagined it. Amazu, makers of the up and coming Light Apprentice, definitely imagined it though.

Light Apprentice tells the tale of Nate as he attempts to do his part to protect Ethenia from the Yhrosian Empire. The story is told mostly in comic book form, with players able to make key decisions at certain points in their adventure. It also contains light RPG elements and a similar combat system; making it seem almost equal parts comic and game.

The first episode of Light Apprentice will be available in March. In the meantime, you can satisfy your curiosity by checking out the official demo in your web browser.

The Walking Dead: Assault Released

Posted by Jeff Scott on November 30th, 2012

It seems like just last week we got the final episode for the fantastic Walking Dead> The Game from Telltale. Today we see the release of a new Walking Dead game, licensed as the official game of the comic. The Walking Dead: Assault is a top down point and click shooter/strategy game stylized to look very similar to the comics. In the little time I've had with the game it seems really well done. We'll have a full review up soon.

Pocket God Comics Getting Another Issue and a Substantial Facelift

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SHORT BUT SWEET :: Read Review »

No doom and gloom for the pygmies this time around. At least, not on a global scale. The Pocket God Comics app is getting an update (or rather just got one by the time this ends up being readable) including the 16th issue and a fairly major tweaking to the store’s interface.

In this latest episode, the girls need to fix their raft with a laser. Sure, that makes perfect sense. The catch is they can only get one by catching a laser shark. Oddly that makes a little more sense. And, of course, mayhem and hilarity shall ensue as the pygmies attempt to bag a very large, toothy, and heavily armed fish. The app itself (pictured above) should also be much more navigable. New issues, featured releases, Top Titles and more will be right up there on the main page for all to see and access. It’s looking pretty slick all things considered.

By the time people start reading this, the update should be live. Assuming there are some folks out there who don’t own the app yet, it’s also available for the incredibly low (and obnoxiously expected) price of $0.99.


Cut The Rope Launches New Comic Series

Posted by Blake Grundman on December 22nd, 2011

When an iOS game has over 1.6 million unique users every single day, it is pretty safe to say that it might be successful.  One of the very few apps that can boast that kind of statistic would be the run away success Cut The Rope.  Just trying to wrap my brain around the absurdity of that many players in a single day is nigh impossible, so I don't even bother trying to comprehend the game's total download count of over 60 million across the iOS and Android platforms.

So with that many people being invested in the plight of poor little Om Nom, you might have wondered where the little critter came from, what exactly it is, and how it came to love sugary treats.  ZeptoLab decided that the best way to answer this and many more questions was to launch a new comic, explaining his entire origin story.  The series' companion app just launched yesterday on the App Store, with a completely free first issue.

If the first story strikes your fancy, the rest of the episodes will be available for two dollars.  There will also be a full print run of the comic coming next year, so there is a little bit of something for everyone.  Give the first issue a read and let us know if you like it in the comments.

Finally! Strawberry Shortcake Gets Her Own Digital Comic

Posted by Rob Rich on December 14th, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

After over 30 years of being a thing, Strawberry Shortcake (yes, that Strawberry Shortcake) is getting her own digital comic book app. From the folks involved in the super-popular Pocket God digital comic, no less. And it's all thanks to Ape Entertainment.

The app itself is free to download and includes a preview of the first issue. After that, the first three currently available issues (The Pineapple Predicament, The Sour Truth and The Berry Scary Storm) can be purchased for $2.99 each. Every issue contains a grand total of three stories, with a sizable 16-pager and two smaller ones. The app also includes a special feature to assist users with locating the closest comic retailer in their area, so that they can get their hands on some physical copies if they so desire.

The continuing fantasy adventures with lots of wholesome values (but sadly, no scratch-n-sniff) are up on the App Store right now. Anyone who harbors fond memories of the colorful bake-happy franchise should certainly take a look at the Strawberry Shortcake Comics Reader.

Imaginary Range Combines Comics With Gaming

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: UNIQUE :: Read Review »

A new hybrid form of game and comic is set to be released by Square Enix for iOS devices.

Known as Imaginary Range, the app sets out to allow players to flick through comic pages while also playing through a variety of different game sequences. Games look to be mostly mini-game in nature within a full-color comic book and similarly detailed plot.

The project has been overseen by Motomu Toriyama, director of Final Fantasy XIII, with novelist Souki Tsukishima handling the storyline, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series artist Toshiyuki Itahana in charge of the artwork. With pedigree that strong Imaginary Range is looking rather interesting indeed.

The comic/game is set in France during an attack by an evil creature known only as Omega and it's down to Cid (yes, Final Fantasy fans, another character called Cid) and Ciela to stop this menance.

Once you complete the story, you can then unlock further comic commentary as well as the ability to play the game separately from the comicbook. If gameplay is anything like the visuals then Imaginary Range could well be something special.

Even better, it's free to download and an universal app so iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch fans alike can enjoy it.

Comimix for iPad Review

iPad App - Designed for iPad

Comimix is a one-note app that delivers a fixed feed of comics to the user. It lacks any sort of customization or versatility, making it a frustrating reading experience.
