The Lord of Orcs: Online Strategy and Tactics Review

Orcs. You know them. You love (to kill) them. But it's hard to get excited about playing as them in this uninspired RTS.

PAX East 2014 - Get Ready to Feel the Rhythm with Jungle Rumble

Posted by Rob Rich on April 14th, 2014

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.

Shin Megami Tensei Has Been Translated to English and is Due on App Store in March

Posted by Tre Lawrence on February 28th, 2014

Atlus has announced that its cult classic first-person RPG title, Shin Megami Tensei, has been translated into English for the first time, and is due out soon for iOS devices.

The game is a delightfully retro-ish looking title, and involves the collection of demons that can be summoned to fight in battles that make up a good portion of the game. In the end, the future of the world is at stake.

For folks who cut their teeth gaming in the early 90s, Shin Megami Tensei will be an exciting blast from the past; it is due out on the App Store for $7.99 on March 18.

Battlehorn Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Phil Bickle on October 4th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: SPAWN UNITS
Battlehorn tries to ride the line between being simplistic without being a unit spam game. It doesn't quite succeed, but is still fun.

PAX 2013: Free to Play RTS AirMech Coming to iOS and Android

Posted by Jeff Scott on September 4th, 2013

AirMech is a free to play futuristic RTS with a huge online multiplayer following. Over a million players already on desktop. The mobile version is in testing right now and could be available within a couple months. But, like many things, it's all about timing.

The main goal of the mobile version - which Carbon Games Co-Founder James Green isn't really sure they will make money on - is really to give players a choice of where to play. The ability to play on the move and while away from their PCs is a promising idea for many AirMech players.

iPad App - Designed for iPad only

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.
