19w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan confirmed that Chillingo's iBomber Defense blasts onto PS Mobile this week.
To quote: Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. Action Button Entertainment's Ten By Eight and Chillingo's iBomber Defense released this week, along with updates to 0War and Mononoke Slashdown.
Ten by Eight by Action Button Entertainment ($2.99)
Ten By Eight is a puzzle game strong enough for a brain surgeon and pH-balanced for a rocket scientist. You can clear as few as three tiles, though don't stop there!
Swap tiles into groups of three or more. Chain up the longest match you can. Use wildcard star tiles to link a chain of one color to a chain of another color. Heat the action up in any of three modes. Timed Mode asks you how many points you can make in three minutes.
Zen Mode asks you to hang out and make your own challenges (try clearing all eighty tiles in one action). And Endless Mode never ends – if you're good enough. In Endless Mode stone tiles will appear. Surround them to destroy them; if one touches the bottom, it's game over. Also, the music is great.
25w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra blasts off on PS Vita this July 2nd with details below.
To quote: What can I say? Other than sorry for the delay! We've been somewhat harassed by you folks for a month on Twitter, Email and Facebook, and frankly we deserved it! But now Velocity Ultra for PS Vita is nearly upon us, bug-free and with a high-res coat of paint.
Velocity Ultra has earned some whopping review scores. Still not convinced? Let's look at some of the improvements in this new, definitive version of the game.
Velocity Ultra features online leaderboards and Trophies (including a Platinum!), native res artwork, and flawless 60FPS action. I
t's a piece of perfectly formed interactive art that we're extremely proud to have installed on our PS Vitas. Velocity Ultra also features the same kick-ass soundtrack by Joris de Man (and myself, yay!), which you can now buy separately from all major digital music storefronts!
So what are you waiting for? A sequel? We'll see what we can do, but in the meantime, this is the definitive Velocity experience, and we're sure you'll agree that it rocks!
43w ago - Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has confirmed that Rocketbirds blasts off on PlayStation Vita today with details below.
To quote: The wait is over! We're very proud to announce that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is wiggling its way onto your PS Vita starting with today's PlayStation Store update.
To start things off - an apology to those of you who own the PS3 version of the game, whom we promised a reduced price last week if you also purchase the PS Vita version.
We 'clucked up,' and the planned 20% discount will take a bit longer before this is set up in the US PlayStation Store. We will let you know when the discount goes live.
That said, building upon our 3x IGF Finalist browser game Rocketbirds: Revolution! and Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS3, this new PS Vita version utilizes many of the PS Vita's awesome features.
For those of you who are reading about this title for the first time, in this game, you'll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis!
It's an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled...
46w ago - Managing Director and Co-Founder at Green Hill Maarten de Koning has confirmed today alongside a video that Gun Commando will be blasting onto PlayStation Mobile this Wednesday.
Below are the details, to quote: Do you like old school first person shooters? Do you own a PlayStation Vita or a certified PlayStation Mobile device?
If the answer to both questions is yes, then we at Green Hill have some great news for you! We're very proud to announce the release of Gun Commando, an "old-school, new-cool" first person shooter, developed in collaboration with Abstraction Games & Ripstone Publishing, and coming to your PlayStation Mobile device this week!
Gun Commando is a distinctly classic first person shooter that combines 8-bit graphics with visceral game-play, in the vein of Wolvenstein and Duke Nukem.
You play Jack Bennett, a weapon-loving alien-hating gun-for-hire; who is called in to save the world from invading aliens. Alongside the story - sublimely visualized by comic book legend Romano Molenaar - and the great retro look, it features a unique weaponry upgrade system that rewards players' skill and accuracy, allowing you to upgrade to the big guns faster if you've got what it takes.
72w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach is here with a fresh video announcing that Retro / Grade officially blasts off on PlayStation Network this August 21st with details below.
To quote: Hey everyone, good news: We've finished our award-winning rhythm/shoot'em up, Retro/Grade!
The game will be released on August 21st exclusively on PS3, and will provide hours of mind-bending rhythm-based gameplay as you fight through reverse-timed space battles.
We've gotten many requests to make Retro/Grade's soundtrack available, so I'll go ahead and confirm that we'll be selling it on PSN. If you want the game and the soundtrack, there will be a discounted bundle - we'll have more details on pricing soon.
For those who aren't familiar with Retro/Grade, it's similar to a classic Shoot 'Em Up... in reverse! At the beginning of the game you stop a massive alien invasion, but all the destruction damages the space/time continuum, causing the flow of time itself to reverse.
What would have been the final boss is actually the beginning of your backwards journey. You must help Rick Rocket restore the continuity of space/time, before the temporal anomaly rips the universe a new time-hole!
