French Developer Pated Unveils Seashine

Posted by Ellis Spice on October 30th, 2014

French one-man studio Pated has unveiled Seashine, "a poetic journey into the abyss." Players take on the role of a jellyfish struggling to survive in the harsh deep ocean caves, with the game set to be an experience built around exploration, reflection, and survival.

In a search for light in the deep dark waters, players will have to hunt for rare light sources to last a little longer, avoiding the many natural and supernatural obstacles in their path. Using one-finger tilt-and-touch controls, players will be able to challenge their logic in levels, or their survival and exploration skills in an endless survival mode.

Seashine will swim into the light App Store sometime either later this year or early next year, and will be free to download.

By Rob Rich on May 15th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: FOR VETERANS ONLY
Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy is a solid digitization of a compelling board game marred by an insanely steep learning curve and very little help for new players.

Mail.Ru Launches Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering

Posted by Kevin Stout on May 11th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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?)
