Kicking things off is GlitchSoft’s much anticipated release of Star Marine: Infinite Ammo, an action-packed Contra-esque bullet-ridden ‘classic’ arcade game. Who needs “↑↑↓↓←→←→BA” when you can equip yourself from a selection of seven high power weapons with infinite ammo and let the bullets fly as you mow down the enemy forces.
Next up is Smash Cops from newcomer Hutch Games. Its a unique, fun (and beautiful) looking racing game where you are a cop in a high speed chase. Using your finger you “steer, weave, defend and attack runaway felons with full control of your vehicle”.
Scribblenauts Remix developer 5th Cell is back with Run Roo Run, a cute looking level-based platformer that will have you (Roo), a mother kangaroo, traveling across Australia from Perth to Sydney in search of her kidnapped Joey. With over 400 levels and 100 extreme levels the game features simple one-touch gameplay and unique abilities like “double jump, ride-able clouds, gravity-defying umbrellas, invisibility, tire swings, and more”.
Also in the ‘cute’ category is Atari’s port of the popular PC title for kids, Freddi Fish and the Stolen Shell. My daughter Emily has really been enjoying this title a lot (expect a full review soon).
Finally, we have some new titles from the usual suspects, Chillingo and Gameloft. Chillingo is offering up
Last but not least is Urban Crime, a free 3D crime simulation game from Gameloft in which players try to take over territories controlled by rival gangs in their bid to conquer the city. “Free-roaming gameplay merged with an endless variety of missions: Lose the Tail, Steal Cars, Kill the Enemy, Save Your Gang Member and more.” Weapons include grenades, flame throwers & more.
