180w ago - FuturLab's Managing Director James Marsden has announced today alongside a video that Coconut Dodge for PS3 and PSP Minis is getting a free update soon.
To quote: I didn't think I would be back here so soon, but we've been hard at work creating a free update to Coconut Dodge!
It's essentially a Director's cut, as we've had a bit more time on our hands to add extra polish and extra features! We've also listened to all the feedback you've given us so far, and implemented a bunch of your suggestions
Here's a list of the updates:
1) 3 Lives - This has been the most requested feature. The game is still a great challenge with three lives, and to reward you for playing the game without being hit, you'll get 20,000 bonus points on levels 10, 20 and 30 if you manage to do it without being hit at all. So, the hardest of the hardcore will have the highest score
2) Quit and Restart from Pause menu. This is something we wanted to do initially, but didn't have the time. It's now in all modes of the game (gave something away there!) and works as expected!
3) A different SuperTurbo run animation. It's faster, with bigger plumes of sand, so that you can tell easier when you've activated SuperTurbo speed.
183w ago - Laughing Jackal Senior Producer Al Evans has shared a video trailer today of Cubixx, which is coming soon to the PSN Store for PSP and PS3 Minis at $3.99 each.
To quote: Laughing Jackal is pleased to announce that our first PlayStation minis title, Cubixx, is coming to the US PSN Store on June 8th, 2010 for the great price of $3.99!
Cubixx has been very well received in our native EU PSN Store, and now we're sharing the cuboid love with our friends across the Atlantic. We hope you'll take this opportunity to check out this super-addictive retro title. Be there, or be, um... cube-shaped, I guess.
Cubixx takes inspiration from a couple of older games of the same type and tasks the player with using their laser to cut away the surfaces of a mysterious cube and free the energy within. Cutting longer lines and crossing multiple cube surfaces will reward you with larger combos, but at far greater risk.
The game features 20 levels of increasingly lunatic difficulty, we really do challenge anyone sane to try and beat Cubixx's 20th level. Many...
183w ago - Laughing Jackal Senior Producer Al Evans has announced today alongside a video trailer that Vibes for both PSP and PS3 Minis is coming soon to PSN for $5.49.
To quote: Just another quick announcement to let you all know about our exciting third PlayStation minis title for PSP and PS3, Vibes, which will release on the PlayStation Store on June 8th at the price of $5.49.
Vibes is an action-packed rhythm game that includes a lucky 13 music tracks, covering everything from Classical to J-Pop, to Psychobilly, to Punk. With three levels of difficulty your finger will be well and truly wrecked.
The game is squarely aimed at fans of the rhythm-based genre and has a steep learning curve, so if you think you have conquered Guitar Hero then give this a try. Starting off on the Easy difficulty allows the player to get used to the control mechanism – the difficulty then builds and builds, and will push players to the limit on the harder difficulty settings.
One feature we're particularly proud of is the music-video inspired background sequences during gameplay. These not only look awesome, but they're also hilarious (if I do say so myself), and feature things such as pulsating ducks, throbbing buildings and flexing sumo wrestlers....
183w ago - Today Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has revealed that 5-In-1 Arcade Hits is coming to PSP and PS3 Minis on PSN at the end of June.
To quote: I would like to introduce you to Grip Games and our first upcoming minis game that will be released for PSP and PlayStation 3.
Most of our team came from mobile games development houses, including Disney Mobile Studios. We wanted to switch from iPhones and PDAs to a real gaming platform. That is why we are here now.
The game I would like to tell you about is "5-in-1 Arcade Hits". We couldn't agree on what kind of game our first PSP project should be, so we made a little bit of everything
5-in-1 Arcade Hits contains five games:
Pairs (AKA Concentration) is a memory game. 8ball Pool is, surprise, a favorite Pool game. 15Puzzle is a logical game where you have to slide 15 tiles into a right order.
Next one is Solitaire, a number one time-killer game in the world and finally, Tetroid, is a hectic action Arkanoid/Pong mix.
It definitely seems like a ragtag compilation of games, but we really wanted to have a game for anyone there. It does not matter whether you like all of the games or just one - there's always something for you that you can play.
183w ago - StormBASIC Games Marketing Head Pilar Pino has revealed that Tehra: Dark Warrior is hitting PSN for both PSP and PS3 Minis, with the PSP Minis version arriving today!
To quote: Tehra: Dark Warrior PSP Minis is out! TDW is a fantasy-based RPG slasher set in the times of knights and dragons.
As you navigate through each level you encounter numerous enemies or varying size and strength. Using the power of your large sword you battle through grabbing and slashing everything in your path.
The game is set in the land of Sistar, a city laid to waste due to endless war between the humans and a tribe of vicious mythical demons called the Urka'h.
As the main player in the game, you move through realistic 3D environments aiming to grow stronger and gain more skill to ultimately defeat stronger enemies.
Throughout the game you're likely to meet a number of creatures, including the likes of Orcs, the undead, Mages, enormous Trolls and some of which will be unknown to man. Tehra was created as a hybrid human-devil to mediate the conflict and maintain peace.
With the help of demon blood, Tehra can switch from human to demon, wherein her attacks are stronger and deadlier but require more energy.
