BlazBlue Trades in Swords for Decks this Fall

Posted by Blake Grundman on June 23rd, 2014

There are very few contenders left in the 2D fighting game arena. One of the last standing combatants are the beautifully hand-drawn sprites of the BlazBlue franchise. Recently it was announced that the series is going to be making its iOS debut this fall, in a form that you may not quite expect.

BlazBlue: Battle Cards aims to blur the lines between fast-paced combat and deliberate strategic card games, all the while revisiting characters that fans have come to know and love on their home consoles. Look for more information as the game nears launch in a few months. In the meantime, be sure to enjoy the little sneak peak, below.

SOULCALIBUR Unbreakable Soul Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Jennifer Allen on May 12th, 2014
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: AWKWARD BATTLING
Fight it out with cards and puzzle elements rather than the usual SOULCALIBUR format in this awkwardly unexciting title.

PAX East 2014 - Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is Almost Ready to Hack and Slash its Way to the App Store

Posted by Rob Rich on April 15th, 2014

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.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: ONE MAN ARMY
Despite an over-reliance on in-app purchases, Fightback is easily one of the coolest and most intense side-scrolling fighters on iOS.

By Lee Hamlet on October 28th, 2013
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: IRON WILL NEEDED
Iron Dragon lacks the variety, multiplayer support and therefore the replay value of the the old-school beat-em-ups it takes influence from.

It might be weird and wacky one-touch kung fu, but it all works surprisingly well.

Cool Clash Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Lee Hamlet on August 28th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: STYLISH CLASHING
More 'Cool' than 'Clash', this is a stylish beat-em-up that is too light on content to make it worth the asking price.

By Lee Hamlet on August 13th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: FLYING KICKS
Kungfu Jumpu is an innovative fighting game that uses slingshot mechanics rather than awkward on-screen buttons, and it works extremely well.

By Lee Hamlet on August 9th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: CUSTOMIZABLE COMBOS
KungFu Quest - The Jade Tower brings some new ideas to the side-scrolling-fighter table, but not enough to stop the gameplay from becoming repetitive pretty quickly.
