A couple of weeks ago, I sort of stumbled across a trailer in our forums for an upcoming game called Implosion from Rayark Games, and it was the sort of thing that was right up my alley. It featured a mech-like protagonist in fast-action gameplay similar to games like Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden. Basically, beating up a bunch of bad dudes and looking like a bad ass while doing it. Most people seemed to agree that Implosion looked awesome, but lots of questions arose about how the game would control on the touchscreen, a valid concern with action games like this. Well, Rayark has responded to that with this lengthy hands-on demo which shows Implosion being controlled with a pretty standard set of virtual controls. The first half of the video shows the game running on an iPad mini, while the latter half shows it on an iPhone 5.

The original trailer for Implosion looked great, with various snippets from the game along with grand music and dramatic soundbites from the storyline. However, sometimes seeing a game in action directly does more to get me excited than even a well-produced trailer can, and that's the case here. I was sold on Implosion already, but oh boy I'm really sold now. The various offensive attacks, that giant boss enemy, the seemingly flawless framerate and smooth animations even when many enemies are on screen. Implosion just looks great so far.

I'm eager to see more, so hopefully Rayark continues to keep us in the loop as development continues, and be sure to check out what people in our forums are saying as well. Implosion is set for release sometime in 2014.

    Wow, nice'n easy buy 😉

  • Lazer Kat

    I'll pay $5-$10 for this day one - no IAPs please.

  • James Cameron

    Looks good. Shame about the crappy voice acting

    • ImJPaul

      Devil may cry and ninja gaiden have always usually had pretty bad voice acting too. It's the gameplay that matters and the gameplay looks freaking SICKKKK

    • themostunclean

      At this point that's a genre staple. It actually lends a type of atmosphere to the game that I personally find endearing.

  • Gucciipad

    Take my $$$ now.


    The voice acting...ugh. If it's going to be that bad, just give us text boxes. Seriously.

  • Zeillusion

    Yeah same here. 5-10$ up front no iap's please! Looks promising. Cannot wait!

  • Echoen

    You can dodge at will! Yes! Good animation too.

  • SumoSplash

    I can't wait for this. Looks delicious. I like the shifting perspectives, from horizontal to angled birds eye, etc., along with the ability to switch from melee to combat weapons. A little Metroid, a little Minigore 2, a little exploration, a little intensity, badda-bing, badda-boom, throw it in a blender and take my damn money. No IAP please! Thank you.

  • Ollivar Frank

    This looks like it would be fun on any platform

  • HardyRawls

    Hopefully there's an option to turn off that awful, monotonous voice acting.

  • klouud

    I think the voice acting is meant to be campy/cheesy

    • Lazer Kat

      And by 'meant to be campy / cheesy' you mean 'didn't have budget for professionals'.

      • themostunclean

        I'm sure Devil May Cry had a big enough budget and it still had crap voice acting.

  • Cheuk Seto

    this is a game that needs a physical controller

  • defunct32

    Or maybe Jared and Eli should lend their voices? Ear candy!

  • Rivalsan

    This looks AMAZING!

  • Adsinjapan

    The game looks absolutely fantastic!

    But...why does the dialog have to be so wooden??

    I hope the voice acting gets moved up a few notches before the final release. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's poor delivery of storyline by hollow sounding actors.

  • bigjack66

    Looks lovely one of the best looking I've seen look forward to it!

  • Goggles789

    Oh yeah, this game! I totally forgot about it. Glad it's coming out soon, because it looks really fun!
