Feel the Beat in Jungle Rumble, Swinging Soon to PlayStation Vita

50°
11w ago - Disco Pixel's Trevor Stricker invites PS Vita fans to feel the beat today in Jungle Rumble, which will be swinging soon to PlayStation Vita.

To quote: We are stoked to announce that our rhythm game sensation, Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas is coming to PS Vita very soon! We are adding more monkeys, more beats, and more bedlam. This is bananas!

What's Jungle Rumble? The player drums to control a tribe of monkeys. A rival tribe invades to steal bananas. The player sends monkey minions into the fray by drumming on the screen. It's the world's craziest rhythm game.

Using the PS Vita's touch screen to tap along to the beat of the jungle, players drum on monkeys and then drum on trees to have their simian soldiers swing through the trees. Drum on coconuts and then drum on enemies to throw those coconuts with rhythmic flair.

The player jaunts through the jungle with a rhythmic grammar. Unlike a traditional rhythm game there is no script to follow-in Jungle Rumble drumming controls the game.

As the game evolves, the questions pile up. Why would that tribe invade and shatter the peace in the jungle? What would cause them to risk war?

Jungle Rumble features a dynamic soundtrack - as more and more monkeys team up, the music swells with intensity....
 

Video: Frozen Synapse Prime: Combat Basics on PlayStation Vita

50°
11w ago - Double Eleven's Mark South shared a video today detailing the combat basics in Frozen Synapse Prime on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hey folks. To better help you understand what Frozen Synapse Prime is all about, we've created a video that runs through the basics of combat.

Here's a quick look at how the simultaneous-turn-based combat system works in Prime:

1.) Players on two separate teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. You have the option of simulating the plan before you commit to it.

2.) Both teams then commit their plans for each turn; we call this "Priming" a turn.

3.) Once both players have primed their turns the outcome of both teams' plans is played out and the resulting combat ensues.





Once you wrap your head around that, you'll need to try and predict your opponent's strategies, wipe them out, or complete a set of match objectives – depending on the match type. Reading the environment and working with the strengths and positioning of your squad is key to victory.

You will learn and develop your own strategies. The mind games between players, and inspiring players to anticipate and deceive...

Video: Kick & Fennick on PlayStation Vita: New Details and Trailer

50°
14w ago - Co-Founders Vincent Bonefaas and Laurens Bruins at Jaywalkers Interactive revealed new details and a PS Vita trailer video today showcasing Kick & Fennick on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hi everyone. Laurens and Vincent from Jaywalkers Interactive, here. Time flies. It's been a year already since we've last shown our game, but we're back and excited to finally share a bit more about Kick & Fennick for PS Vita!

The past year has been a crazy ride for us. We have been working closely with our friends at Abstraction Games to make Kick & Fennick the best it can be on PS Vita.

The guys at Abstraction have conjured up some amazing tech that allows us to continually refine and improve the game on our side, while they make sure everything we do gets translated perfectly. Kick & Fennick has quite a lot going on so building this custom tech has been a challenge, but we think it was worth it.

The audio also had a big overhaul. Our good friend Jonathan van den Wijngaarden, who composed the music and created everything you hear in the game, has re-mastered the entire soundtrack and polished and added lots of new sounds effects.





As for the release of Kick & Fennick, it's a bit too early...
