Gameplay Video of Crescent Moon’s Upcoming ‘Gears’

Remember the trailer for the Crescent Moon Games’ upcoming title Gears? No? Well here it is again, and it’s really worth watching a second time just to marvel at how they’ve manage to clip together gameplay footage of a ball rolling game to make it seem this epic:

Sure, Crescent Moon is known for their RPG offerings like Aralon: Sword and Shadow and Ravensword: The Fallen King, but there’s no disputing the fact that ball rolling games have worked great on iOS devices, especially when combined with both adventure and puzzle elements. Dark Nebula Episode 1 [99¢] and Dark Nebula Episode 2 [$1.99] are fantastic examples of this.

Developer Josh Presseisen provided us the following hands-on video today, and while I’m not entirely sure it will live up to everyone’s expectations after that crazy of a trailer, it does look pretty cool:

Gears is scheduled for release as a universal app in early March, and while they’re not discussing final pricing yet, they’ve said it will be comparable with similar games on the App Store. We can’t wait to try a finalized version of the game to see if the Crescent Moon magic that made Ravensword and Aralon is capable of transcending genres or not.
