Bearded Man Studios, the three-person development house, has announced the upcoming release of its second iOS game, named Warp 5 Overdrive.
According to Lead Artist and Co-founder Andrew Briare, the game is "a super hard endless runner type game with nods to 80s arcade shooters that takes place in a contained 3D environment. A player controls an auto-firing ship (made of cubes) that rotates around a cylinder all while dodging various obstacles and enemies in a one hit kill environment."
"The goal of the game is to travel as many lightyears as possible," Briare goes on to say, "After a player’s ship is destroyed, a global leaderboard is shown that tracks the top “voyagers” of Warp 5 Overdrive and the player’s overall rank. Players can use the default ship or create their own ship with our Ship Creator."
Warp 5 Overdrive is due on the App Store March 18.
DotEmu has announced the imminent arrival of its new game called Little Big Adventure, which is due out later this month.
As with a lot of DotEmu games, this is a port of the iconic retro game of the same name. It chronicles the story of Twinsen, who is locked up for dreaming his way to finding out about future events; escaping lockup is the backdrop story. According to the publisher's release, there will be plenty of dialogue, puzzles, and characters.
Little Big Adventure will be coming to the App Store on March 27.
