Rebellion Games Unveiled as a Partner Developer on Metal Technology

Posted by Ellis Spice on September 11th, 2014

Rebellion Games, developers of the Sniper Elite series and iOS titles like Joust Legend and Harmony Isle, have announced that they are now a partner developer on Apple's Metal technology.

Metal was announced back at WWDC, and Rebellion Co-founder and CTO Chris Kingsley has stated that he saw its potential as soon as it was announced:

"We’re excited to be working so closely with Apple’s technology in our Asura Engine as it will empower us to code to Metal, remove some of the main rendering bottlenecks, and bring even better looking, more immersive games to iOS devices. Metal is leading the way in the next generation of mobile rendering technologies. It could be a real turning point for mobile gaming."

Whilst no games were mentioned, it's very likely that we can look forward to some Rebellion games coming out and using the new 3D API sometime in the future.

Big Zombie Mole of the Demon Empires edition? Sure, let’s go with that.

Big Win Baseball - Now I’m not a huge sports fan, but I do love me some card games. So combining sports with something akin to a CCG is bound to get even my attention. Cards can be acquired through random card packs, bestowing new players or game-changing special cards. Some can even be used to upgrade a player’s existing stats. You know this sounds cool.

Zombie HQ - I’ve been chomping at the bit to take this one for a spin after reading our own Monica Stevens’ review. Loads of action, zombie killing, outfits for character customization, lots of weapons, survivors to rescue, and a base to decorate is more than enough to pique my interest. Being able to do all that for free makes it a no-brainer. No zombie pun intended.

MOLEHEART - I enjoy a good defense game, especially if it’s free. However, when said defense game involves evil undead moles I find it incredibly hard to ignore. The extensive variety of unit types, special controllable heroes, epic battles, varied skills, strategic unit combinations, and 60+ stages are pretty much just icing on the cake.

Rise of the Warriors - Why hello there, free iOS MMO, how are you? You doing good? Plenty of fighting styles for players to choose from when they make their character? Several different factions to join? Lots of skills to unlock? A good deal of rare weapons and armor sets to find and equip, as well as show off? PvP options to keep bloodthirsty players happy? Yeah? That’s good to hear. We should meet up for lunch sometime and catch up.

Demon Busters - Yes, fine, so it’s another iOS card game. I’ve got a sickness, deal with it. This particular one is like a combination of CCG and Pokemon, where some monsters need to be captured rather than earned through card packs. It’s also more about cooperation rather than opposition as players will work together to take down more powerful demons. Card game or not, I still think it sounds pretty cool.

Star Empires - I’ve yet to come across anyone who plays video games who’s openly opposed to the idea of galactic domination. As such it stands to reason that there are bound to be plenty of people interested in taking a look at this space-themed strategy game. What with the being able to form alliances, building special structures to give an edge in battle, exploring new planets, commanding fleets of ships, and stuff.
