Oh boy, we’ve got a doozy of a new release week on our hands. LOTS of new games, including some highly-anticipated big-name titles like Baldur’s Gate II, Mega Jump 2, Across Age 2… basically lot’s of games with “two" in their name. I’m also really excited for Shadow Blade, Bardbarian and Arc War, which all look like pretty unique little games. Earlier today, Eli streamed many of these new releases on our Twitch.tv channel, and those videos have been embedded below where applicable. Of course there’s also the obligatory forum links and iTunes descriptions, so be sure to check everything out and have fun!
Across Age 2
‘Across Age’ was the first ever released Japanese Retro Action RPG on the App Store. Its engaging storyline, intense action and eerie dungeons provided a whole new game experience. The sequel improves the formula with over 15 hours of exciting gameplay and beautiful pixel perfect 2D environments- optimized for Retina Display.

Baldur’s Gate II
Kidnapped. Imprisoned. Tortured. The wizard Irenicus holds you captive in his stronghold, attempting to strip you of the powers that are your birthright.
Can you resist the evil within you, forge a legend of heroic proportions, and ultimately destroy the dark essence that haunts your dreams? Or will you embrace your monstrous nature, carve a swath of destruction across the realms, and ascend to godhood as the new Lord of Murder?

Gameplay is a unique hybrid of: arcade, rpg, strategy/tower defense and a shoot-em-up. You play as Brad, who is tired of being a barbarian and always wanted to make music, so one day, when his town is under attack, decides to play music instead of fighting. While playing music, brad inspires the townsfolk to fight for him instead of hiding. The moral of the game is doing what makes you happy instead of what’s expected of you, the irony is that brad could kill most of these enemies with one swing of his weapon, but chooses not to. Dodge enemy projectiles while your followers attack for you. Use power-solos for attack, defense and speed buffs. Killing 5 enemies without being hit will give you a stun power-solo which knocks back and stuns your enemies, as well as destroying all enemy projectiles.

Jump into action with ‘RISE OF WAR’, a new perspective defense game. What’s new? Most defense games are standalone, wave intensive and come with predefined targets. So, we envisioned and built a multi player defense game with strategically designed waves and random targets which vary according to skill of opponents every time you play. To captivate the intensity of war, we opted the historical context of World War 1 as our game’s backdrop.
