Battle Fleet 2 In Development

It’s been a few years since we’ve released Battle Fleet for iPad and Mac, and it’s time to update the game with the development of Battle Fleet 2. This time along with gameplay improvements and lots of new features, we’re focusing heavily on the graphics and moving into full 3D for the game. The concept and overall game mechanics will stay the same, so you’ll still build a fleet and play turn-based top down naval battles, but here are a few of the changes: Continue reading

Out There

Yesterday while visiting GameFaqs’ site, I noticed their daily poll was “What’s your favorite science-fiction genre for video games?” That’s like choosing trying to choose your favorite Bruce Campbell line from Army of Darkness. There’s just so many choices! However, one sci-fi genre I think that has been lacking lately is a pure sci-fi (think space travel and aliens). I think I may have the game to fill that niche!

First Strike

First Strike is a tablet real-time strategy game that places you in control of the nuclear arsenal of one of 3 superpowers, USA, Western Europe or… North Korea (really??) with additional superpowers being unlocked as you play. The objective is to destroy the other superpowers before they destroy you. The game is pretty fast paced and exciting as it forces you to make very quick tactical decisions. The graphics and sound are excellent and the interface works really well to allow you to control your territories around a 3D representation of the Earth. The real-time nature can sometimes become counter-intuitive to strategy gameplay as you have to tap through territories as fast as possible to give orders. The replay value is a bit limited as well as there is only 1 map and the same 3 factions for the first few times you play. Continue reading

Total Defense 3D

Most people would reckon that a tower defense game with 3D visuals would be a potent combo of fun and realism. Total Defense 3D tries hard at being that, but unfortunately doesn’t exactly succeed. It’s laggy at times, with poor camera angles and doesn’t have enjoyable gameplay at its core to make it a recommendation. Continue reading
