Yesterday we took a first look at two particularly promising Gameloft games Real Tennis 2009 and Castle of Magic. While we posted the developer’s trailer videos, without seeing them played in hand they never quite capture the feel of the game. So, here are a couple of hands on videos we recorded.
This first video is of Gameloft’s upcoming side-scroller Castle of Magic which looks and feels like a console-quality platformer on the iPhone. This video shows a Gameloft representative playing through one of the levels. The beautiful graphics, variety in level design and extra little flourishes really impressed us:
Now this next video is where I try my hand at Real Tennis 2009. Now, I do manage to lose every point, but to be fair, it was one of my first times playing and I was just getting used to the controls. That said, I did spend a little more time and found the game to be fun and controls pretty solid. Note that swipes can be used to produce different strokes such as lobs, slices, drop shots and more.
Both games will be priced at $5.99 and are expected this month.
