Multiplayer

I had noticed that the upcoming PS Mobile game NeoSnake from Liquid Games had multiplayer, but I had assumed it was simply two people on one device, like Sony’s Feel for Two line of Minis.

But a comment today from them implies it will be on different devices, communicating with each other. While not possible today, thus the delay, presumably it is coming eventually, which could be a big deal.

This is the second week in a row Sony has released a trailer for a just-released PS Mobile game, in this case Hermit Crab in Space, which we’ve been following for a while.

Gameplay looks a little slow, but fun enough.

SpaceQuest2000Title

This is a few days late, but the action RPG from TACS Games, Shuttle Quest 2000, has been finished and submitted for release. So presumably either next week or the week after that, it will be out.

While I can’t honestly say I’ve enjoyed their past titles, this at least looks different and more fleshed out than their previous titles I’ve played (which were somewhat half-finished in my view, and rather unpolished).

* Play the first chapter for free!
* Battle in 30 story missions over six chapters
* Fight 6 giant Megaship bosses
* Collect or buy resources and use them to craft new items
* Equip weapons and drones in one of 4.2 million combinations
* Meet all sorts of characters on ‘Shuttle Station 8?
* Play unlimited random missions with ‘Custom Flight Plans’

Horizon

Beyond the Horizon is our weekly look at games coming out sometime in the future. Perhaps this week? Perhaps next month? We don’t really know when they are due out (in many cases, neither does the developer), but we do know they are in the works.

iBomber Defense was supposed to come out last week, but doesn’t seem to be on the Store. Pickbox (Picbox?) seems to have left the Store.

This week, the award-winning Hermit Crab in Space from Golden Ruby Games should come out. It was the overall winner of a development contest (AKA game jam) that Sony held, so it should be pretty decent.

If we are missing any titles or information, let us know!

Nostatic Software is one of the PlayStation Mobile developers which seem to have a steady rate of game releases. These games are not incomplete, beta-like games; instead, they are polished, and are good games, too. In addition to those traits, Nostatic retains its trademark pixel art and brand of humor in this particular title as well.

The developer’s games are of a variety of genres, with Quiet, Please! being a point-and-click adventure, and Ascent of Kings being a platformer. Kung Fu FIGHT! is a runner, in the vein of Canabalt. This is way better than Canabalt, though. You read that right, better than Canabalt.
