At E3 on Tuesday, Vir2l Studios demoed to TouchArcade a few gaming titles they will be releasing in the coming months.
AMF Bowling is a more stylized version of bowling with over-the-top characters each with their signature move after you build up enough Psyche points. The game is played across 12 different environments with 12 different characters. Some of the environments listed for the mobile version of the game include Route 66, Spielgasse, Hong Kong Penthouse Palace, Studio 77, Ten-pin Shrine, Highland Bowling, Deep Space Lanes, and more.
The controls of the game were simple but enjoyable. It starts with a simple two-tap swing -- the first tap to start and the second tap timed to give you the maximum power. Once the ball is released, however, you control the direction of the ball with the accelerometer. A simple mechanic, but one that gives you more a feeling of participation over some of the other App Store bowling games.
AMF Bowling is due for release in June.
Legend of WuKong Warrior
Legend of WuKong Warrior is an interesting take on the side scrolling platformer. The game features an intersting mechanic that we've seen before in games such as Skybound [App Store] and applies it to a side scroller.
The game combines the use of the accelerometer and swipe controls to maneuver your character through the levels. Swipes below the character draw small cloud platforms for him to jump upwards. Ongoing swipes continue to elevate the character while accelerometer controls provide direction. Enemies provide obstacles which must be dealt with using swipe attacks.
The game will include 20 levels and is not due for release until July. We'll be very interested to see how this game turns out.
Now this one hardly seems like a game, but it is... well, sorta. Sexy Lexy is a high quality rendered companion which you interact with using a series of gesture swipes. Each successful swipe on the right locations unlock additional animations, and after you find all the right spots, you move on to the next level.
Each level, of course, is marked by new seductive animations and a bit less clothing. In the end, despite its clearly adult nature, the game itself will fall somewhere in the PG-13 arena. Vir2l reports they are working closely with Apple to ensure the App is suitable for App Store release. We should see this one sometime in July.
