Tag: Jurassic Park »
I think this will be my Weird Week. I have no idea why, but most of the games I’ve picked out ended up being somewhat unconventional to say the least. Of course I tend to like offbeat stuff so it’s fine. And if you don’t, well this is as much your list as it is mine, so feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below!
Jurassic Park™ Builder I played the crap out of Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis back in The Day. Despite being a derivative theme-park building game in a genre that, at the time, was full to bursting it was actually really cool. I know this isn’t exactly a mobile port of the same game, but it’s darned close what with all the park maintenance and dinosaur escape potential. Plus it’s totally free, so there’s that.
Lunik Swings The slightly children’s book illustration style is what first caught my attention. Then it was the absolutely crazy levels that defy any sense of logic or physics. At the very least this is bound to be the most beautiful looking iOS game about a kid on a swing ever. And since checking it out doesn’t actually cost anything there’s no reason not to satisfy that curiosity.
Bubble Witch Saga Okay, yes, total Puzzle Bobble/Bust a Moove knock off, but it’s also pretty. It also allows players to buy special power-ups. There are even social elements (i.e. compare scores to friends) thrown into the mix. And with over 150 levels and more added weekly, this is one free puzzlegame that should be relevant for quite some time.
Eye Drops from Upstairs It looks retro and it’s completely ridiculous. I’d say I’m sold if this game actually cost anything. I mean if nothing else the idea of trying to get eye drops into a man’s eyes from several stories up by way of some kind of elastic arm is pretty unique. It also seems crazy enough to be fun in short bursts.
Epic Raiders A line-dragging RPG with loads of loot, plenty of character classes, full customization options for every single character in the party, some pretty darned impressive visuals, and a cost of zero. Yup, it’s got my attention. Oh, wait, it also has online multiplayer (PvP). Why are you reading this and not downloading it already?
Dédale Free Every now and then it’s nice to play a game that isn’t exciting. Or rather, sometimes playing a relaxing game can be just what a person needs. And while a game about guiding a music-loving butterfly through 100 handcrafted levels (and an infinite number of procedurally generated ones) might seem weird, it’s also relaxing. Simple, intuitive, mellow, and free. I like the sound of that.
Feeling a bit of deja vu? That’s because it was less than a week ago that Jennifer Allen posted that Telltale Games had released episode four of its Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space series, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space Ep 4. Now the fifth installment of the popular series has been released, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space Ep 5. These guys are just rapid-firing releasing games about Sam and Max.
This episode is hot and dangerous because Sam and Max are dealing with none other than Hell and Satan himself. The dynamic duo try to bargain for Bosco’s soul and try to escape from the corporate wasteland known as Hell.
The game, of course, features popular mini-game “Whack da Ratz” where users can compete for top scores in the Freelance Police Hall of Fame.
It's been a month since Episode 2 of Jurassic Park was released. I have good news for fans of the previous two episodes. The third instalment has just hit the App Store!
Episode 3, otherwise known as The Depths, brings players one step nearer to the conclusion of the series and it's certainly upping the ante when it comes to action.
The player will find themselves making their escape, from Isla Nublar, through dark maintenance tunnels that connect the park with plenty of carnivorous dinosaurs in their path to freedom. Worst of all, the stress is becoming too much for the survivors as they begin to turn on each other.
As has been the case with earlier episodes, iPad 2 owners can opt to use AirPlay mirroring as they play to ensure fun for everyone watching.
Jurassic Park: Episode 3 - The Depths is out now priced at $6.99.
Let us know how you're finding the season so far.
Telltale Games are back at it again, bringing more of their point and click goodness to the iOS. Mirroring the cinematic Jurassic Park experience already available on the PC, the iPad 2 exclusive second episode will continue the quest embarked upon in the series' freshman effort.
"The Cavalry," as this newest installment is christened, will actually follow two separate plotlines. In one branch Nima, Gerry and Jess will continue searching for a shortcut, pushing the trio through a never-completed roller coaster. The other side of the story will focus on a rescue team desperately in search of survivors. If nothing else, this certainly sounds like a compelling direction to resume the action.
Also, iPad 2 owners shouldn't forget that all of the current as well as upcoming Jurassic Park episodes will take advantage of iOS's unique AirPlay functionality when combined with an Apple TV. Why just play something on a tablet when you can experience it on the big screen, right? This should be a mission jam packed with exciting dinosaur encounters that players will not soon forget.
Exciting times dinosaur fans! Jurassic Park has hit iPad 2s! Not literally obviously as no one would like a T-Rex to crush their beloved gadget. No, I'm talking about Jurassic Park: The Game, hotly anticipated since Telltale Games announced it earlier in the year.
Maximizing the processing power of the iPad 2, Jurassic Park: The Game promises breath-taking cinematic scenes and some darn impressive graphics. Players will be taken back to Isla Nublar during the events of the first Jurassic Park film and be able to interact with the storyline in a brand new way. While many locations will be familiar to fans, there will also be plenty of new areas to explore as we discussed earlier this week.
Jurassic Park: The Game also comes with AirPlay functionality so that players can see the action on their Apple TVs for even more impressive visuals.
Jurassic Park: The Game is out now for the iPad 2 priced at $6.99.
In just a few short days, Telltale Games' second "adventure game that's practically a sequel for the movie it's based on" will be unleashed. On less mobile devices, anyway. The iPad 2 version is set to follow soon after the November 15th release date, but nothing specific has been stated as of yet. That's okay though, because we have these new morsels of information to tide us over.
Jurassic Park: The Game takes us back to Isla Nublar shortly after the events of the first film, following a new cast of characters simply trying to escape the island with their lives intact. However, it's not just about the new faces: this time around we're going to be seeing more of the park itself. Sure there will be familiar areas (i.e. Dennis Nedry's "ditched" vehicle), but we've also learned of some new locations players will get to explore that weren't covered in the movie.
Locations such as the still under-construction Bone Shaker Roller Coaster, the Geothermal Power Plant, Dr. Laura Sorkin's Field Lab used for observational studies (as well as some unsanctioned and dangerous experiments, the North Docks which are a stone's throw away from the iconic Visitor's Center, and finally the Marine Facility (video featured below), which I'm personally terrified to experience. Wait until the end of the clip to see what I mean.
iPad 2 owners, keep an eye on that App Store after the 15th. There might not be an official release date for the iOS version, but I'd imagine it might only be a week or two longer. Heck, since the 15th is a Tuesday it's also not out of the question to consider it might be available on the 17th (Thursday). So... Anyone have an iPad 2 they don't want anymore..?
