33w ago - Ringzero Game Studio General Manager Franck Blaevoet has announced today that Burn The Rope will be sizzling onto PlayStation Vita next week.
To quote: Hi everyone, I'm Franck from Ringzero Game Studio and I'm happy to announce the release of Burn the Rope for PS Vita on 10th October.
Burn the Rope is an original game where you must burn as much rope as possible at each level. To start burning the rope you simply tap the touch screen wherever there is rope. Once the rope starts burning you can control the flame by rotating the screen.
The flame always burns up and it will burn out if it runs out of rope. The speed at which the flame travels along the rope is determined by the angle of the rope.
You can also control the flame using the touch screen as well as rotating the Vita. You can even use the rear touch panel (so your fingers won't block the view).
You can also pinch on the rear touch pad to zoom in or zoom out the view. This can help if you have really big fingers or are all thumbs J. Oh, it also helps if you want to be more precise in starting the flame.
As you progress through the levels, you will encounter bugs crawling along the rope. Different bugs react differently to the flame, but we are...

33w ago - XDev Studio Europe Producer Mark O'Connor has announced alongside a launch video trailer that Table Ice Hockey skates onto PlayStation Vita today.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey there everyone. I'm excited to be able to tell you about Table Ice Hockey, the latest 'AR Play' game for PS Vita.
It uses three of the AR Play Cards to transform and freeze your table top to make an ice hockey rink and arena. You start off with the basic frozen lake surface and then unlock bigger and more advanced stadiums the more you progress through the game.
We have designed the game to be really easy to pick up and play, with a great arcade-style look and feel. You take direct control of any one of five players out on the ice, putting together fast flowing moves and end-to-end game action.
The really cool thing about the AR aspect is the fact that you can play the game from any position, so you can move your PS Vita around to get as close to or as far away from the action as you like. Replay mode is another great way to enjoy this aspect, as you are in charge of the camera, viewing from whatever angle looks best.
Don't worry if you are new to the sport or want to brush up your skills, there is a tutorial option available to get you started. This is split up into 'Beginner'...
