194w ago - Today SCEA Santa Monica Studio's Associate Producer Mike Graham has revealed more details alongside new videos on Gravity Crash for PS3 and PSP.
To quote: Earlier this year, we unveiled one of the newest additions to the PSN line-up, Gravity Crash for PS3, and were thrilled with all the positive responses it received. So, you can only imagine how excited we were to make the announcement during GamesCom in Cologne that we will be releasing this retro-chic title on the PSP as well!
Please take a look at a brand new Blog post from Stewart from JAW -- developers of Gravity Crash -- for a closer look at how both titles came about and what you can expect to see in both versions of Gravity Crash.

Poison - Ezio will be able to acquire poison to use on his hidden blades. The poison eventually kills the target (after a minute or so), but until such a time, the target goes insane, and will babble with madness, trash around and lash out at people and guards.
Smoke Bombs - These were first seen in a preview the developers of the game created at which time they used them to blind the guards and quickly run away.
The toys can also be combined in various ways. Poison a guard and have a crowd of people gather around to watch the show. Then throw some coins on the ground and watch them scramble to pick them up while crazy-pants beats them to a pulp. This creates a nice little distraction, allowing you to sneak past the guards.
