App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 15th October 2012)

By Dave Flodine, on October 15, 2012

Hey Hey everybody! It's a Monday, my belly is bursting of fullness after eating far too much chinese food, and it's time for another edition of the App Wrap Up! As always, we've got some games to look at that may or may not be interesting and worth your time and money based off of their trailers. What goodies do I have in store for you today? Let's find out!

Uehara Adventure (UeharaLabo)



There's something very intriguing about this game. Perhaps it's playing as a kanji character, perhaps it's it reminding me a little of Syoban Action, perhaps it's the play on mechanics in different stages. This looks like it could be enjoyable for platformer fans, but at a $4.49 price point, it's probably too dear for most.

The Room (Fireproof Studios Ltd)



No no, it's not a game based on the cult movie (although if you're a fan, you must check out the 8-bit game over at Newgrounds). The trailer doesn't give us much, but it looks to be a puzzle game invoking such titles as Myst or The 7th Guest. Taking advantage of gesture based controls, this could be an engaging puzzle experience.

Pocket Climber (Punchbox Studios)



Mechanically this looks pretty basic, climb and dodge. It's the art style that captivates, and as long as those coins being collected go towards resonably priced upgrades that enhance the game experience, this could be a fun time waster.

Red Dart Fighter (PilPil Games)



While the game at the end of the trailer looks fun enough, i kind of wish it had more of the art style shown in the trailer. The whole game seems to be going for a pulp comic vibe, and even without that, shooting aliens in a bi-plane equals good times in my book

Tender Loving Care (Trilobyte Games, LLC)



So it seems that in the mid ninties, the makers of The 7th Guest, made an interactive movie game called Tender Loving Care, that's a drama / thriller that changes based on you perceptions of the characters and their actions. It didn't really do that well as the gaming public didn't know what to make of it, so they're trying their luck rereleasing it on the ios. Personally i feel that the interactive movie was a failed experiment of the 90s, but if the story is engaging enough (or the acting hokey enough), i can see this being enjoyable.
