It’s been a long time coming, but Disco Pixel’s Jungle Rumble is almost upon us!

Jungle Rumble is very much a rhythm game. It’s also kind of a real time strategy game. It’s being described as “Patapon meets Advance Wars” and I have to say it doesn’t seem too far from the truth. Controlling your monkey (or squads of monkeys) is simply a matter of tapping your commands in time with the beat. Move, run, toss coconuts, that sort of thing. The goal was to make an iOS rhythm game that allows the player to make decisions rather than simply trying to stick to a specific script or pattern.

I have to admit Jungle Rumble feels pretty good. It doesn’t necessarily look like it from the screen shots but it really does call to mind games like Patapon in a very pleasant way. I had a little trouble keeping the rhythm at times but I’m fairly certain that had more to do with a noisy show floor than anything. Still, I’m interested in seeing how it plays in a much quieter setting.

Jungle Rumble should be releasing within the next couple of weeks (probably). I didn’t get a set number for the price, but it’s definitely going to be a premium game because the folks at Disco Pixel “don’t want to monkey around with micro-transactions.” Yeah.

New App: Autodesk Starforce Battlement

iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Autodesk is known for computer assisted drawing apps from the way back, but this is a real-time strategy game that shows off their new Autodesk Scaleform Mobile SDK, which features hardware accelerated graphics and streamlined mobile deployment, so there.

The year is 3072 and humanity is at war. Galactic colonization brought about a golden age for humanity, filled with abundant resources and a new way of life. But greed is never far when wealth is at stake. Humanity has broken into two factions: the United Earth Alliance (UEA) and the Outlier Forces, a rebel group who will stop at nothing to steal wealth and resources from the UEA.

You are a general in the UEA and it’s your job to defend colony outposts throughout the galaxy. You have a full arsenal at your disposal: UEA mechs, tanks, infantry, and the ability to call in orbital strikes.
