Topia Game Review

topia4

Topia is a new game from Crescent Moon Games released on iOS in early October. This is the first release of the game, which Crescent Moon calls the “Sandbox Release.” Topia is exactly that, a world sandbox where you can create and take away land and add different species of animals. While a sandbox world is fun, I am eagerly awaiting an update to see what else will come of this game.

Even with its few faults, Pantazis Deligiannis Games seems to be on top of it and listening to what the gamers want in Dungeon Story.

MGS

Shigeru Miyamoto may have come up with an iconic Italian plumber named Mario, but Hideo Kojima is the mastermind behind a crazy kook named SNAAAAAAAAKE. Some people thought that the series was done, but not Kojima. Metal Gear Solid is coming back.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand is a fighting game iPhone app in the vein of their Soul Calibur series. You play as Spartacus in story mode or select from other gladiators and go head to head in a battle to the death. Story mode attempts to follow the plot of the first few episodes, and faithfully shares in the gore. Little clips from the show are also spliced into cut scenes to tell the story but there are no voices, just subtitles.

iPhone App Store fires up with Street Fighter IV

ST

Hadouken! Sonic Boom! I’ve been big into fighting games ever since I first played Street Fighter II in a smelly old arcade, so this news hits really close to home. If you’re ready to take Ken and Ryu with you on the road, you’ll be glad to hear that Street Fighter IV is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch via the App Store.

Not surprisingly, there are several things missing from the iPhone version of the game compared to its console counterpart. For starters, you don’t get all 19 characters. Instead, you are restricted to just eight world warriors: Ryu, Ken, Guile, Blanka, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, M. Bison, and Abel. I would have liked to see Akuma and Gouken in there, but no such luck.
