Players will complete quests, fight battles, and collect powerful cards and upgrades as they progress through the galaxy. Also, players actions will determine if they fight for good and join the light side, or use their powers for evil and fall to the dark side.

Frogger Decades Leapfrogs Onto iOS Devices

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: OVER THE HILL :: Read Review »

As a gamer of 20 odd years, it excites me to see the release of a reimagining of a timeless classic. That's one of the reasons why my iPhone houses Arkanoid and Space Invaders: Infinity Gene - some titles just don't get old.

While Frogger is quite a classic, it has aged just a bit in recent years. So the prospect of it being revitalised is very cool indeed, which is fortunate as this is exactly what's happened with Frogger Decades.

Graphics and animations have been brought up to date in time for Frogger's 30th birthday and there's even a hint of a storyline. Frogger comes back home to find a map to his birthday party pinned on his front door, and thus starts a wild and wacky adventure to make it to the party on time. Five different environments are available with the memorable frog having to jump, hop, swing and dodge his way around obstacles.

It's the same classic gameplay that made players fall in love with Frogger the first time, just spruced up with a modern paintbrush to enthral once more.

Frogger Decades is out now priced at $1.99. Oh and it's an universal app which will keep iPhone and iPad owners happy!

Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night Announced for iPhone

Posted by Bonnie Eisenman on May 17th, 2010

Konami's dabbled in the App Store before, with made-for-iPhone releases from well-known franchises such as Dance Dance Revolution S and Metal Gear Solid Touch. Now they've announced another major game, this time from another fabled franchise...the Castlevania series.

The Castlevania games are typically platformers whose plots revolve around Dracula and the vampire-slaying Belmont family. The game announced for the iPhone, however, takes a slightly different turn. Titled Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night, the upcoming game will be a puzzle-RPG in which you play Alucard, Dracula's son. You'll also be able to play as (or against!) characters from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The screenshots make the game look somewhat similar to Puzzle Quest. So far we can tell that you'll have weapons and armor to equip and spells to cast. As for the battles themselves, they look like a hybrid of Bejeweled-style match-3 and falling-blocks (aka Tetris).

While this puzzle game looks like more of a spin-off than a regular series game, we're certainly intrigued. Release date and pricing info are still uncertain, but Konami rarely announces a game long before its actual release. Castlevania fans, stay vigilant—once Encore of the Night hits the App Store we'll be working on a review!
