+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Tons of guns, wacky mecha-machines, and hordes of Zombies to splatter? What’s not to like? Gamevil announced its latest, Zombie Gunner, today. It’s free and in the App Store now. The game itself was funded via Gamevil’s Partner Fund, which sees the larger company supporting indie developers to publish their games across the globe.

Zombie Gunner is an action arcade game in which users must protect civilians while in search for the protagonist’s daughter amidst a zombie apocalypse. The cause of the imminent chaos is not revealed as the hero finds himself surrounded by zombies and a broken town. Users are able to equip the hero with various weapons ranging in size and type. Though out the journey, the hero runs into other characters who help him along the way while revealing clues as to his daughter’s whereabouts. With a multitude of stage challenges and boss battles, Zombie Gunner brings blood splattering joy to the side-scrolling action genre.

The Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) recently ran a competition in South Korea to help find some of the most intriguing upcoming titles from local developers, in order to help promote their gaming industry. Sixteen games were selected by the agency, and they will be released over the next 12 months, with titles being published by Gamevil and Com2us.

The first of these titles are Plants War, published by Gamevil, a strategy-RPG hybrid, and Cheese Please, a mousey puzzle game where players must try to eat the cheese in each maze, without dying from the many hazards present. The rest of the titles will range from arcade action titles like Dead City and KaTaNa. There’s Fruit Rush, a colorful puzzler with daily missions, and Sir Real, a 3D action RPG that will use the Unreal Engine. Even a selection of MMO titles will be involved: Astro Wars, King of Pirates, and Fantasy War, along with some social games like Golden Menu, Little Wizard, and Aqua Story. These games were all selected to show off the talent of the Korean game industry, trying to turn the country into a top worldwide content creator.

It may not be a huge trend, but it appears that a growing number of companies are offering funds to assist developers to create and/or promote their apps in the Apple and Android markets. These companies foresee that the number of mobile phones and tablets purchased is only going to keep on rising for the foreseeable future along with the number of apps for these users. It’s a good time to get into the marketplace. Case in point: Gamevil recently announced a $10 million partnership fund for external developers who have smartphone gaming ideas.

    GAMEVIL has announced that Kami Retro, the 8-bit inspired puzzle platformer released back in March for the iPhone and iPod touch and given a four-star rating by 148Apps has been made available in a version optimized for the iPad, with Kami Retro HD. According to the head of GAMEVIL USA, Kyu Lee, “The unique style of KAMI RETRO HD looks, sounds and plays great on the iPad. Developer Paw Print Games perfected a top-notch experience for the device and we’re thrilled that more new fans can enjoy the game in HD.”

    And the iPad version of the game should promise to be more friendly to the gameplay than the smaller iPhone/iPod touch screen was. The puzzle platformer does not give players direct control over their retro-inspired men to get to the exit; instead, players must do swiping actions to control the characters’ movement and jumping. Having more room on screen to perform these swipes should theoretically lead to improved results, especially when multiple characters are on the screen at the same time. More accurate controls should hypothetically mean improved gameplay for iPad owners over the original game.

    The game also comes with the updated content that the iPhone/iPod touch version has received, including the new bear, cat, bunny, and robot skins. The game comes with the same 60 levels of the original version, including the bonus levels where the player must guide just one of the retro troops through a single room, trying to collect all the items in it before time expires. Kami Retro HD, named Apple’s iPad Game of the Week on May 26th, is available now for $2.99. Sadly, the game is not a universal app like other releases are starting to do, so multiple device owners will have to choose between which version of the game they want, although the iPhone/iPod touch version is currently available for only $0.99 as well.
