A new video for Swords & Soldiers, a much anticipated title from Chllingo, has just been released.
Developed by Ronimo Games, Swords & Soldiers has previously been a great indie hit on the Nintendo Wii, Sony Playstation 3 and both Windows and Mac platforms. It’s now set to be released on the App Store this Summer. The game involves three factions – Aztecs, Vikings and the Imperial Chinese – fighting it out in order to gain the powers of the gods. It’s a quirky yet cutesy tale promising a compelling single player campaign with the ability to unlock bonus games also.
The iPad version is also set to offer a local multiplayer mode to accompany the three campaign modes and Skirmish mode that the iPhone version will already provide.
A release date hasn’t been announced yet but we’ll be sure to keep on top of this news as and when we find out.
For now, check out the video below to get a taste of what’s to come.
Gaming app behemoth Chillingo has just released details on their Spring lineup and it’s looking pretty strong for pretty much all tastes comprising of a mixture of casual and more complex concepts.
There’s Spider Jack, a game that looks guaranteed to enthrall fans of Cut the Rope. You have to help Jack the hungry spider collect up all the flies in each level. The trailer looks like the perfect combination of cute cartoon graphics with pretty simple yet compelling gameplay.
Continuing the simple yet fun theme, there’s Spoing that has a great looking indie style to it. This time round you have to guide little Spoing, a rather cute little black ball thing, levels while collecting gems and avoiding monsters. It’s looking rather simple in the trailer suggesting you direct the ball around by flinging him up trampolines, hopefully it’ll get a bit harder as the levels progress. The ability to create your own trampolines certainly has a lot of potential.
D.A.R.K promises a mixture of science fiction horror survival RPG elements alongside 3D two stick shooting action. The trailer doesn’t appear to offer any in game footage but the premise certainly sounds intriguing. Screenshots certainly look atmospheric. A possible rival to Dead Space?
Another cryptic title is that of Swords & Soldiers – an iOS conversion of the Wiiware and PC game of the same name. Only one image has been released so far and it makes the game look rather ‘busty’ offering some buxom blonde women in, er, knitted form. Chillingo promises 2D side scrolling strategy action so it’ll be interesting to see how Swords & Soldiers turns out.
Vampire Rush looks a bit more obvious with Torchlight/Gauntlet style gameplay. As the trailer suggests, there’ll be plenty of hack n slashing fun to be had as well as some elements of tower defense too. Hopefully there’ll be plenty of looting to do too.
Dream Track Nation offers slightly mental looking 2D racing action. Physics will play an important role here in order to leap through the numerous obstacles ahead and frantic racing seems to be the order of the day here. It’s also going to include a level designer which should promise some great creations amongst you and your friends.
As always, check back here for the latest on all of these titles as we hear about them. While you wait though, take a look at the selection of screenshots below.
