Kemco experiments with 3D in new RPG Alphadia Genesis

Kemco experiments with 3D in new RPG Alphadia Genesis

It can be easy to laugh at JRPG factory Kemco. It is easy to imagine teams of designers and writers gathered around a conveyor belt assembling an endless stream of cookie-cutter RPGs. However, with its latest release, Alphadia Genesis, the developer has stepped outside of its comfort zone by experimenting with 3D visuals. Given the JRPG genre's focus on menu-based combat, 3D visuals have never been a priority. However, while the over-world map and story play out in 2D, Alphadia Genesis's combat takes place in the third dimension. This adds a little drama to the turn-based battles, as bosses now tower over your fleshed out team of tiny fighters. The new visual effects are joined by a twist…


RoboCop Review

Review MGM Studios By Alex Beech, 3 months ago
RoboCop Review

Everything has gotten smaller since the eighties. Mobile phones don't need their own suitcases. You can fit a whole arcade in your pocket, and cyber policeman RoboCop has been transformed from a lumbering tank into a sleek, ninja-style killing machine. Developer Glu has taken advantage of all of these facts in its latest movie tie-in, RoboCop. In terms of gameplay RoboCop owes more than a little to the arcade classic Time Crisis. Though the camera perspective has shifted to third…


Fluxx Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Fluxx Review

To understand Fluxx by Playdek and Looney Labs you have to understand 'madness' itself. If you reach back to the days of your youth, there are undoubtedly examples of play time with friends where 'playing' was all that mattered - rules existed in a basic sense, but they were ever-changing and evolving, almost at random. Fluxx embodies this free-spirited insanity to create a card game that is never the same game each time you play it; in fact it's entirely different from round to round,…

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Square Enix certainly have rhythm game’s on their mind of late, but for a company that boasts so many classic songs, very few (if any) were exploited to drive droves of gamers to their welcoming bosom. Other titles may have featured composers that are now famous amongst the gaming community, but Theatrhythm features the songs that brought them to our attention - notably the large anthology of songs they’ve written for the Final Fantasy series. The core premise and executio…

Sphoxie Review

Review Olivier Archer By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Sphoxie Review

While the iPhone has created a resurgence of 2D platforming titles, the 3D platformer has been kind of neglected. Perhaps it's because the added challenge of creating a camera and a three dimensional space worth exploring is a daunting task, but regardless, it makes it so that when a 3D platformer is released, it's almost a novelty. Sphoxie is such a platformer. You play the titular named character who is a sort of blue sphere who gets sucked into a portal and trapped in a hostile worl…

3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Review ZAKI By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Why is the E in evolution turned around into a 3 for the sake of this title? Well because the whole concept of primordial evolution is apparently aided by three helpers named Nunstuck, Git, and Slotermeyer. 3Volution has you evolving through life forms in what amounts to sort of a high speed soccer game, complete with power-ups and obstacles creating an experience that can be unfair and over before you know it, but set up so that you instantly press retry to give the whole affair anoth…

Wraithborne Review

Review Alpha Dog Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Wraithborne Review

There's something about story doled out through voice-over and still images that makes one not want to pay attention. Wraithborne is a 3D beat em up along the lines of God of War, and really, unlike that game, the exposition about your quests and actions presented here does not aid the gameplay, and it certainly does not add any context, drama, or sense of purpose. Walk around, smash monsters, upgrade your spells to use magic to smash monsters; that's the name of the game here. The ba…

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
SpinCraft Review

Pyp has one more chance to be a successful galactic pizza boy, otherwise he's out of a job and out of luck. Grab your spinny pizza delivery spin thingy, and get ready for some 3D platforming and gem collection. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... Spincraft. Now is the game worthy of such a grand introduction? Is any game really? Not by a long shot! This doesn't mean that Spincraft is a bad game though. Unpolished may be a better turn of phrase. Each level has you picking up thre…

Review UNNYHOG Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
iCube Review

Have you ever spent time in a games shop or visited a bar or diner where they have those puzzles made of wood, metal, or plastic laying around? Maybe you need to disconnect the rings from each either, maybe you need to get an object around the grooves to the other side, or maybe like in the game iCube, you need to rotate a ball around a maze to its final destination. The funny thing is the controls of iCube sort of give the same tactile pleasure of play that holding one of these puzzl…

Zaxxon Escape Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Zaxxon Escape Review

As Arcade games go, Zaxxon by SEGA remains milestone in gaming history thanks to its many firsts - not the least of which was the introduction of 'axonometric projections' to create a sort-of holographic 3D effect. Thankfully it's 2012 now and 3D effects are the least of our worries, so SEGA have dug up their classic title to give it Temple Run-like shake-up. It's here that things start to feel a bit worrying - avoiding hazards has always been a staple in the original isometric shoot'…

Re-Volt Classic Review

Review Big Bit Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Re-Volt Classic Review

Not everything is better the second time around - sure we can point to the many 'Karting' titles of the 90s, including greats like the Micro Machines series, but it's 2012 and you'd hope the formula would have changed by now. Re-Volt was, for its time, a fun and frantic 3D racer with a toy's-eye-view of the world, but with little changed since its release the title feels like it hasn't fared well over time. After picking from the initial set of unlocked vehicles the player is able to…

Lili™ Review

If you’re one of the handful of people who If you’re one of the handful of people who missed out on hearing about Lili by BitMonster, then you’re in for a treat. There was absolutely no question of how beautiful this game was going to be as it not only sports the Unreal Engine, but those who made it are ex-Epic and quite familiar with how to use it. However, what really counts isn’t the presentation, but how it interacts with the gameplay - and on this score the…

VS. Racing 2 Review

Review Northcube AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
VS. Racing 2 Review

While other top-down racers are content to keep pushing the visual boundaries of the iOS platform, VS. Racing 2 sticks with the tried-and-true 2D sprite system (albeit with some 3D elements adding depth), and even more surprisingly, controls that require - at most - two fingers. The overall effect is that of the game feeling very tightly designed - it efficiently throws you amongst a variety of AI opponents on winding and twisting tracks where you vie for pole-position to earn as much…
