‘Epoch’ Developers Unveil Crazy Dodge ’em Up ‘Danger Dodgers’, Coming Next Week

Following the success of their wonderful Epoch series on iOS, developer Uppercut Games spent a few years creating their 3rd-person adventure game Submerged for consoles and PCs. With the release of that last summer, Uppercut are back doing the iOS thing, and their next title looks like quite a departure from the gritty, sci-fi nature of Epoch. It’s called Danger Dodgers, and the best way I can describe it is it looks like Land Sliders (Free) had a baby with The Incident ($0.99). Maneuver a cast of wacky characters around an arena to avoid the many falling meteors. It’s a simple premise but one that looks quite fun in the trailer.

To be honest, I’m growing kind of tired of these Crossy Road-esque huge-cast-of-characters-highscore-games, but Danger Dodgers looks like it takes things to a new level. The graphics are really really lovely, colorful and cartoony, and I totally dig the ragdoll physics when one of your characters gets smashed by a meteor. It’s especially cool how they come flying towards the screen. What do you think, does the world have room for yet another Crossy-like? We’ll find out on February 25th when Danger Dodgers hits the App Store for free.
