Sure, we’ve sort of compared everything to Doodle Jump since it was released in 2009, but that’s because it’s so good everyone wants to be it. Now, Hedgehog Launch isn’t exactly what you might consider a Doodle Jump clone, but its similarities are undeniable. With Hedgehog Launch you shoot a cutesy little hedgehog into the sky, and bounce off of platforms to get higher and higher. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
Gun Bros is a non-stop 3D top-down dual-stick freemium shooter (say that ten times fast). You try to survive wave after wave of TOOL enemies until you die, earning Xplodium that can be refined into money. You then take that money and buy new weapons and armor that will make it easier to clear more waves (and earn more Xplodium – to buy more weapons and armor).
Age of Zombies is a loveably inappropriate top-down shooter (think Gun Bros but with sprites). Similar to Gun Bros, you gotta shoot wave after wave of bad guys. But in Age of Zombies, you must protect the universe from Zombies. The premise is awesome – the evil Dr. Brains has infected the entire world with Zombies by dropping them off in every time period, so it’s your job, as Barry Steakfries, to go to those time periods and save the world.
Capcom’s expeditions into the App Store thus far have often been port overs or re-releases of past console hits, like Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 4. The creators of Mega Man are taking that trend one step further with the newly unveiled Capcom Arcade, a free-to-download, officially licensed emulator for retro Capcom games. For now, the only games available to play are Street Fighter II, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, 1942, and Commando, but Capcom has promised to update the arcade with new releases each month.
After seeing it in action months ago at an Apple press conference, more than a million people downloaded “Epic Citadel,” the skeleton of an app that, until recently, has had no name and no release date. Since the announcement we’ve seen demos, pictures, and even heard an ambiguous release day (Holiday 2010). But now, the cherry on top of our App flavored double scoop: ChAIR Entertainment has just released a trailer. The verdict? You tell us.
Forget Farmville--in Restaurant Story, you get to see what happens to all those cutesy cows at the end of their journeys. Remember Betty, the little calf you named and watched wean in your little farm?
