Video: Table Top Tanks Bringing Explosive AR to PS Vita May 22nd

250°
127w ago - Devil's Details Director Steve Oldacre has announced today that Table Top Tanks will be bringing explosive AR to PS Vita on May 22, 2012 with a video trailer below!

To quote: I'm Steve and I'd love to tell you about the latest great PS Vita Augmented Reality game Table Top Tanks, which we developed at Devil's Details in Sheffield, UK.

When we were asked if we'd like to develop Table Top Tanks by our friends at SCEE we couldn't believe our luck: Who doesn't like blowing stuff up with Tanks? And we got to play with and help develop PlayStation's AR technology too. So, we said "Yes please!" and got down to work.

So, what's in Table Top Tanks? Firstly, there are the tanks: They're quite quick, nimble and fun to drive and you can choose from 10 different colors.

Their main cannon is pretty powerful and you can upgrade its shell type by running over pickups; my favorite is the bouncing missile - they're great fun to spray into the edge of the arena and watch them cause carnage and confusion as they bounce around.

To get you started playing the game we've included a single player campaign, which will teach you how to play and challenge your tank skills.

But the real fun comes making your own maps using the simple editor. You...

Neo Tanks v0.2 PS3 Homebrew Game is Now Available

700°
150w ago - Following up on the initial release, today PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has released a Windows port of the PS3 homebrew game entitled Neo Tanks version 0.2.

To quote: Here is a update/port/remake/whatever of Neo Tanks. It was originally made over 9000 years ago for Windows, eventually remade for PS3 with the leaked SDK, later ported as my first 3D Wii release and is now back on PS3 via PSL1GHT.

It's still pretty much a glorified screen saver and it actually performs worse then it's first PS3 version made with the leaked SDK and it's Wii counterpart (rendering polygons on screen seems to be rather slow with PSL1GHT).

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Turn camera
  • R1 = Shoot





 

LBP Turbo! Pack Development Diary 9 and 10: Tanks A Lot

231w ago - SCEE Senior Producer Mark Green has posted up LittleBigPlanet Turbo! Pack development diary 9 and 10 updates today, dubbed Tanks A Lot, as follows:

'Turbo! Pack' Development Diary 9: 'Tanks A Lot'
Sam Dickinson, Designer

The Bridge Builder was a tricky proposition, because it had to be able to move around easily, but also create a bridge that the tank could cross (and the tank is a pretty weighty engine of destruction).

Also, the gaps had to be big enough that the tank couldn't just roll across them, and so the actual bridge emitting bit was getting a bit big and unwieldy. So we made bridge sections that cleverly expanded immediately after emitting. Not only is it useful, but it looks cool too!

We found that you can have fun emitting bridge sections while swinging the bridge emitting arm around. We also found that the bridge sections can get in the way, and that you can just emit lots on one gap to easily bridge it, so we limited number of bridge sections that can be emitted to one at a time.





The tank was good fun, but we decided that what we also wanted something that actually fires missiles. Technically (here comes the science bit), the tank fires projectiles,...

234w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov has shared a video announcement today that NormalTanks for both PS3 and PSP will be coming to PSN this week.

So, [Register or Login to view links]! This game is an old school-looking, fast-paced, multi-directional, top-down arcade shooter set in a sci-fi universe.





There are eight challenging, dynamic, and hazardous environments to tackle: inside enemy bases, outdoor jungles, mountains and more. Every level has its own end-level boss to defeat. Generally, the game features more than 30 different enemy types including tanks, heavy machines, helicopters, robots and bio mechanical creatures, SSM missile sites, and heavy cannons.

To destroy enemies more effectively,...
