This is the news I have been waiting for.
The first of a new wave of computer games to come to the iPhone and iPod Touch is already available for download on the Apple App Store, and there’s no sign of it stopping any time soon. There is no word on price or any other information, but the app is called allotsego and offers a game called The Game of Allotsego, which is basically the same as the original game except with more cards.
The developers are working on a new game, called The Grown Up, now available for download on the Apple App Store. We have already posted about it in our review.
The game has a lot of similarity to the original game: you will now have to go around collecting cards of different sizes and colours in order to defeat the Visionaries. The main change is that the number of cards you can collect is limited to 100. Also, there is no limit on how many cards you can collect. The graphics are a bit more detailed and colorful, but the game is still very much like the original.
The main difference between this game and the original is the fact that you can play it offline. You only get one save file and the game can only be played online. If you had played the original in a physical format (i.e., on your computer or on a game console) the game would be a lot easier to get past the game’s anti-piracy-filtering because then you could play the game right in front of your eyes.
There are no online restrictions however. It’s still a lot of fun to get a second or third playthrough through the game.
There are a few things that are a little off. The game is still the same as the original, but the graphics aren’t as smooth, the sounds aren’t as high quality, and the gameplay is a lot shorter. The original is over 10 years old and still fun to play. This game, though, is an attempt to update the game to look a bit sharper and better.
The time-looping ’em up Deathloop will be part of our lives, and last night the devs treated us to a new trailer telling us a few tidbits about the game’s story. Of course, like most of the other trailers, it’s also full of sneaking, cool powers, lots of guns, and excellent fashion.
Time-looping stealth games have been around for a long time. I don’t really like games that have this mechanic. If anything, a game like this is better suited to an RPG or other similar style of gameplay. The original Deathloop is definitely a game that I’d recommend anyone who likes to have a lot of action-packed stealth games. It may not be as hardcore as other stealth games, but it’s still a lot of fun.
While it’s true that there are very few stealth games that use time-loops, allotsego does use time-loops. It’s just that the mechanic is not one that I’m really fond of. A lot of people love the stealth part of these types of games because it really feels like you’re sneaking through some very, very dark, secret, and well-guarded building.
