Out Tonight: Find the Line, Dragon Quest 2 and not much else08 Oct 2014 0
OK, so there isn't anything earth shattering hitting this week. Sure, next week we have Sentinels of the Multiverse heading our way, but this week we'll have to be strong and settle for an interesting puzzle game and some JRPG action. If none of this is sounding good, you can check out Crystal Reign Pocket which we already talked about. It released earlier today. Another option for you lonely souls is Battlestation First Contact.
Battlestation First Contact is a minigame that hopes to be the start of a larger whole called Battlestation: Humanity's Last Hope. It's a rogue-like space station simulator inspired by Babylon 5 and FTL and is currently Kickstarting a PC/Mac version. So, what is Battlestation First Contact? It's a mobile game set in the same universe and with the same goals, however it's way simplified over it's PC/Mac cousin. You can check it out on the App Store or Google Play for free, though, and see if you want to back Battlestation: Humanity's Last Hope for PC and Mac.
Trailer for Battlestations, and more releases, after the break.
Actual releases that are coming out tonight are slim. The first is a slick looking puzzler that, for the life of me, I can't figure out if it would be remotely challenging. It's called Find the Line and it looks like there's not much there from a puzzle aspect. Swipe and the picture seems to draw itself. I'm guessing there's more, but it's not apparent in the trailer. That said, it's got a great look to it and, if there is any challenge involved, is one of those puzzle games I will probably enjoy. Something about creating or revealing images makes my iPad yearn for it. Find the Line should be available tonight on the App Store and it's free.
Disclaimer: I didn't know there was a Dragon Quest 1 and, apparently, there's a lot more than that. In fact, I find Dragon Quest 1, 4 and 8 on the App Store right now. Apparently, it's a pretty well-known Japanese RPG series and, checking out the screens for DQ2, looks pretty decent. It's a top-down RPG in which your cute little party waddles around a colorful map looking for stuff. Or something. That's really all I could get from the press release. Maybe someone can fill in the details in the comments. I couldn't find a video of this one, so you'll have to deal with some promotional screenshots. Dragon Quest 2 should be out tonight for iOS Universal and cost $5.
