Quarriors! Releases Quarmageddon Expansion, Drops Price to Free for a Limited Time

iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Quarriors! is adding in a new expansion pack called “Quarmageddon” to the game, and to mark the release of this expansion the app is going free for a limited time. The expansion pack costs $1.99, so this means the game and new expansion are available for a total of $1.99 for a short while.

Quarrors! is the mobile version of the board-based dice-building game of the same name. It is a faithful rendition, as our review late last year noted.

The game is available on the App Sore; it returns to regular price ($3.99) next week on March 20.

Quarriors Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Quarriors is a faithful adaptation of the table-top game, but doesn’t *quite* hit all the right notes.

E3 Wrap Up: Dexter

I want to preface this by saying that I love the show ‘Dexter’. Its blend of drama, suspense, and comedy make it one of those gems that grip you and never lets go until the end of the season. It’s so good that I unraveled the whole mystery of the Ice Truck Killer (season 1) in a single marathon weekend.

dexter_iphone_screen_e3_2Sadly, my love for TV shows, and movies for that matter, rarely translates into good video gaming. Off the top of my head, I can think of very few adaptations that have worked. It’s just hard to capture the essence of a show in a game. Between clunky controls, bad stories, and odd graphics, there is always something wrong with media adaptations. Knowing this, it seemed to me that Mark Ecko Entertainment and Icarus Studios had their work cut out for them.

Tucked away in a small corner of the convention center, I met with the Dexter team to see how the game was turning out. To my surprise and delight, the game looks really good. The game is your basic stealth game where you, as Dexter, sneak around finding clues to legitimize your serial killing ways. Feeding Dexter’s “dark passenger” is the main point of the game, but there is an overarching Ice Truck Killer story line, complete with the characters involved. To make things more realistic, Icarus Studios built all of the sets from plans from the show (the police station looks amazing!), and got actors from the show, including Michael C. Hall, to do the voices.

Video after the jump.
