88w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has unveiled the sequel to Arcade Essentials dubbed Arcade Essentials Evolution for PSN alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Almost a year ago we released a Minis called Arcade Essentials. The game was very warmly received by the players, so we decided to produce a sequel with 5 new games. So here it is - a Minis called Arcade Essentials Evolution.
As was the case with its predecessor, Arcade Essentials Evolution is a collection of 5 arcade games, remakes of the classic arcade hits of the 80s that we all know. Each game consists of 50 levels, so there is quite a lot of gameplay time here.
We made minimalistic visuals with lots of special effects, so that they would feel like we are in real arcades. To get an idea of how it looks like and plays, please check the trailer:
First game is an enhanced version of a game about asteroids. In the beginning, levels are quite easy, however as you progress further, difficulty increases and new bonuses and asteroids types start to appear.
For example, there is a bonus that allows you to fly through the planets destroying them as you move forward. There are indestructible asteroids that you cannot shoot....
132w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video introduction of Jewel Keepers: Easter Island for Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We are releasing Jewel Keepers: Easter Island, our latest minis title, very soon, and I wanted to tell you a few things about it.
As you might have guessed from the title, Jewel Keepers: Easter Island is a Match-3 game set on the Easter Island. As in all Match-3 games, you are required to swap adjacent jewels to put three jewels of the same colour next to each other in one row or column.
However, we have added a few gameplay elements that make Jewel Keepers different. You can have a look at the trailer to see the differences:
When you start a new level, all cells are grey. When jewels disappear, they turn grey cells into golden cells, and the goal of the game is to turn all cells into golden ones. This sounds pretty straight-forward when you think of an ordinary rectangular level.
However, as you progress further, you will be faced with more sophisticated level shapes, and it will get more and more challenging. And satisfying, once you complete the level.
And a few words about bonuses: we wanted to make bonuses a bit different from other games. We have time...
139w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has introduced 101-in-1 Megamix for PSP on PSN.
To quote: Today, I'm going to talk about our upcoming PSP game, available on PSN only: 101-in-1 Megamix. It will be released on 21st of September in North America and on 22nd of September in Europe.
As many of you have already guessed, 101-in-1 Megamix is a collection of 101 mini-games in different genres, ranging from arcade and puzzles, to space racing and cooking.
The game is structured as a series of humorous TV shows about underwater world, music, cooking and more. There is an unprecedented variety in visuals and game worlds. This is one of the few games that can take you from the Wild West to space and from Paradise Islands to a fancy restaurant.
Some of the games are based on well-known classics, and it will be easy to get an idea of where the inspiration came from.
However most of the games are completely original. We had lots of ideas about fun gameplay and fun visuals that wouldn't work as standalone projects, but would be really fun as a wacky mini-game. Here we were able to choose the best ones and finally do them. Hope you will enjoy them.
There are several game modes in 101-in-1 Megamix. The most important is TV Guide Mode - this is where you...
