Here’s something kind of crazy. Crescent Moon Games is teaming up with Tasty Poison Games to publish a new cyberpunk themed first-person shooter called Neon Shadow. That’s not the crazy part though, as Crescent Moon and Tasty Poison have worked together previously on the truly excellent Pocket RPG ($4.99). No, the crazy thing is that Neon Shadow will feature a same-device co-op multiplayer mode on the iPad, and to my knowledge that’s the first time an FPS has done such a thing on iOS. Seriously, check out how it works in this new video of Neon Shadow.
Intriguing same-device multiplayer aside, Neon Shadow just plain looks like an awesome shooter. I’m digging the moody visuals which draw influence from games like Deus Ex and Mass Effect, and the gameplay is inspired from classics like Quake and Doom, so it should be very fast-paced and action oriented. I love me some modern first-person shooters, but sometimes there’s nothing that can match the pure fun of an all out blast-a-thon in a game like Quake. Neon Shadow is expected by the end of the summer, so hit up our forums and keep an eye out for more information soon.
