194w ago - Beatshapers CEO Alexey Menshikov has announced that the PlayStation Minis game NormalTanks is now available on both PSP and PS3 via PSN.
To quote: I'm Founder and CEO of Beatshapers, a Ukraine based video games developer and digital download publishing company.
I've started my career 12 years ago as audio designer, worked on many games like Carnivores series, Vivisector, Cryostasis, EA's Black, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and more.
Recently, me and our key team members were responsible for IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Pray for PSP platform, MelodyBloxx (this year IGF Mobile "Honorable mention" awarded), Rhythm of War PSP (IGF Mobile 2009 finalist) and BreakQuest, another PSP minis game which we've developed and published around the PSPgo launch.
So what is all this about? NormalTanks is a really old school fast-paced multi-directional top-down arcade shooter in a sci-fi tank universe.
Reminiscent of games from the 8-bit era, NormalTanks features a better look and feel but still retains a classic alone-saves-the-universe gameplay.
There are 8 challenging, dynamic and hazardous environments to tackle: inside enemy bases, outdoor jungles and mountains, every level has own end levels boos to defeat.
197w ago - Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has shared a video today showcasing Rocket Racing which will be coming to PSN as a PS3 and PSP Mini game next week.
To quote: Rocket Racing is the next title to hit PSP minis from Halfbrick, and I'm excited to announce that it will be released next Thursday, March 11.
Rocket Racing has been developed from the ground up, combining high-speed futuristic racing with classic top-down gameplay, which is a perfect fit for minis.
Each track has been designed with a unique twist, suspended high in the air above the clouds and cityscapes to give players a light and almost surreal feeling as they drift around the crisp, detailed courses.
Challenge Mode is the main backbone of gameplay, giving players a number of tasks to complete over six different tiers. Completing once challenge with its specific objectives will unlock adjacent challenges along the tier, so players can choose their own path to the final race.
A key part of racing is the ability to grind. Grinding is a new concept which involves positioning your rockets against the outer walls of the tracks. This opposing force will give you a speed boost as well...
