Ilomilo Gameplay Video | Developers Blog
Well all the RPG fanatics out there can have one more thing to rejoice about because Gamevil is planning to release it’s RPG hit game Zenonia to Android devices in March. If you think Gamevil sounds familiar, it is. That’s because they developed the widely popular games Baseball Superstars 2008 & 2009 as well as developing other popular games across other platforms such as the iPhone and WM.
So I figured while I wait for more Android related announcements during GDC that I would post a collection of the game demo videos released so far at GDC for everyone to enjoy. If I’ve missed one, please feel free to comment and let me know or just comment on what games you like so far.
Having dived into this game for almost a week now I can safely say this is a fun game to play. For a beta version it’s pretty polished and ready to ship onto the Android market. Vacuum by Door-6 is a neat concept as it takes the tunnel style games to another level by having global rankings and cash prizes.
In the spirit of line drawing games where you control an items path with the line you draw such as in Flight Director comes another game similar to it called Flight Frenzy by Big Fun Games. Like Flight Director, you control the fate of airships (and their passengers) by plotting a course for it to land safely while trying not to crash into the other airships you’re controlling.
Even while GDC is going on I can still manage to download and try out new games. One that just got onto the market is called Replica Island by Team Replica which is an open source 2D scrolling shooter game. Sort of like older Mega Man games but with our beloved Android instead of a blue child looking robot.
Even though we are all about Android gaming, there comes a time when we just have to report on the gaming industry in general (considering that if you like gaming on your phone, chances are you own some sort of console system or a computer game or 2.) Well here is where we will ‘quick list’ the more major announcements coming from GDC 2010. If I miss anything, leave a comment and let me know!
Unity Technologies revealed the third generation of its development platform with several new updates, and expanded its list of supported platforms to include PlayStation 3, iPad, and Android.
Even though this isn’t directly related to a particular game, it’s important because it helps every game developer out there developing games for Android. Google announces NDK r3 for Android and the main deal with this revision is about OpenGL ES access for developers.
I don’t know if Stone Jordan got some advice from Aroma Planning on how to make crappy games but it sure seems like it considering the familiarities between the two developers. This week’s review of the worst games currently out are by developer Stone Jordan who has been releasing some sort of picture ‘game’ that displays pictures…and that’s it. These aren’t even games really but since they are posted under the Games section of the market, they get reviewed.
