Little Big Adventure publishers DotEmu have released an update for the retro classic, adding some enhancements that they hope will improve the experience on mobile and reducing the price to boot.
Alongside some minor bug fixes, pathfinding has been improved and made simpler. A new virtual pad control scheme has been added, as has support for game controllers. In addition to the control schemes, a new manual saving mode centered around area-based checkpoints has been added as well.
Little Big Adventure is available now on the App Store, on sale for $2.99.
DotEmu has announced the imminent arrival of its new game called Little Big Adventure, which is due out later this month.
As with a lot of DotEmu games, this is a port of the iconic retro game of the same name. It chronicles the story of Twinsen, who is locked up for dreaming his way to finding out about future events; escaping lockup is the backdrop story. According to the publisher’s release, there will be plenty of dialogue, puzzles, and characters.
Little Big Adventure will be coming to the App Store on March 27.
DotEmu, the prolific cross-platform development house, is marking it’s seventh anniversary by slashing app prices by up to 80% – all the way down to $0.99 for a limited time.
Apps like Earth Defense Force, Nicky Boom 2, and the three parts of the Double Dragon Trilogy are all on sale for just under a dollar. Also included in the sale are fan favorites like The Last Express, R-Type, and R-Type 2.
DotEmu will soon release R-Type II on iOS, bringing the 1989 shoot’em up classic to the App Store. The story is set two years after the original R-Type as the Bydo Empire returns for more. Players will have access to a new bomb type and weapons, including a search and shotgun laser. Users should get ready to challenge their way up the Game Center leaderboards soon!

Double Dragon Trilogy has arrived on the App Store, bringing all three classic titles to your favorite device. This includes Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. It features an Arcade mode for high score challenging and a Story mode for basic play, and also has three levels of difficulty that includes a new mobile difficulty level that’s been balanced for mobile gamers.
Double Dragon Trilogy is coming to iOS at the end of the year. DotEmu will bring all three installments of the beat-em-up title giving gamers a chance to revisit the series on their favorite iOS device. There are two game modes (arcade and story), customizable controls, and achievements and leaderboard standings for players to work on. Who’s ready for some action?
It’s amazing to think that it’s been almost 20 years since gamers were first tossed into the supremely unfortunate shoes of Lester Knight Chaykin. The brilliant young scientist went and got himself stranded in what might very well be the most hostile alien world ever, and boy was it ever tough to get him to relative safety. Learn from Lester, kids: Don’t mess around with nuclear energy.
For those unfamiliar with the title, Another World (a.k.a Out of the World to US folks) was one heck of a tough adventure game. In fact, it was entirely possible to die (horribly) within seconds of gaining control of the main character. And it didn’t let up much until the credits finally rolled. Poor old Lester seemed to be on everyone and everything’s list.
This month, iOS users will finally be able to experience one of the most beloved (and bemoaned) trial-and-error adventures ever thanks to DotEmu and BulkyPix. However, this isn’t just a straight port. Even long-time fans would do well to check this out once it’s released as there have been a number of interesting additions.
First, there’s the at this point by-the-numbers HD upgrade. Worry not, purists, the visuals can be changed back to their original look at any time. Second, a new “intuitive” touch control system has been developed, but a digital pad option is also available. Third, the music and sound effects have been totally remastered. A bullet point in the press release that admittedly has me a little nervous. Achievements make an appearance as well, naturally. Lastly, and most importantly, there are now three difficulty settings: Normal, Difficult and Hardcore. Difficult is what we old-timers experienced “back in the day,” while Normal is a bit easier and Hardcore is even harder somehow. As someone who has to this day never been able to fight my way to those credits, I’m anxious to try out this so-called Normal mode. Hardcore not so much.
Another World is set to release September 22nd (9/22) for $4.99. That’s $5 I’ll gladly toss into the ether for the chance to play this classic whenever and wherever I want.
