Gameloft Update: Rainbow Six and Zelda-inspired original

January 19, 2011 Leave a comment

Gameloft has announced another franchise will find its way onto our mobile devices – Rainbow Six. The game is titled Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard, and the trailer they recently released has no gameplay footage. At all. Instead, Gameloft has decided to use a highly realistic live action teaser structured as an exclusive update on a news channel.

The second bit of news coming out of Gameloft for this week includes a trailer as well, but this time its a new addition to their already large gallery of “originals” inspired by popular titles. This one has been dubbed Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden and it looks to be a reincarnation of the Zelda series. Not the 9-bit Zelda of days’ passed, but the newer, more intense Zelda, and it works. Check out the trailer that does use gameplay footage below.

Sacred Odyssey will be coming to an App Store near you sometime in February, while the due date for Shadow Vanguard has yet to be announced.

Zombie Infection 2 (Gameloft) coming to iOS soon?

January 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Zombie Infection, Gameloft’s Resident Evil/Left 4 Dead clone, might have a sequel coming soon to the App Store. Gameloft’s Mobile Game of the Week on their Website is none other than Zombie Infection 2. The description is as follows:

There’s no end in sight as the Zombie Infection continues its destructive path across continents. Now, three brave souls must work together as they venture deep into the Brazilian jungle, mines, a secret lab and more to root out the source of the disease. Survive zombie attacks on a scale never seen before, including infected bats, sharks and other abominations. Use stealth and cunning or utilize new weapons including a flamethrower, grenades or melee weapons to keep the dead at bay, and even jump inside a speedboat for dramatic escapes.

There is no product page for ZI 2 on the website, but considering porting from mobile to iOS is not incredibly hard, and that the original was received so well by the handheld gamers (4/5 stars on the App Store, 9.7 reader score on IGN) I’m sure that we will see the sequel arrive soon enough.

Gameloft, iOS's game fuel

December 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Gameloft is known for one thing: its uncanny cloning ability. Several titles have fallen victim to the crafty coding of the French developer based out of Paris – Final Fantasy, Uncharted, Grand Theft Auto, Halo, Call of Duty, God of War, Soul Calibur and Resident Evil with plans to create a StarCraft iPad clone. Their online multiplayer service is called Gameloft LIVE and you can obtain trophies (sound familiar?) as well as gaming points for completing certain tasks. Everything about the company wreaks of rip-off… yet I am in love with the company. Gameloft is single handily fueling the iOS gaming platform. They are providing iPhone/iPod/iPad owners with quality console titles despite their blatant inspiration from popular franchises.

The screenshots above are reminiscent of many games I spend my time playing on my Xbox or Wii or my friend’s PS3, yet I commend Gameloft for being able to produce the likes of which they have. I actually collect Gameloft games. It is my guilty pleasure. But mind you, in addition to the wonderful clones that they produce, they have several “official” titles as well: Asphalt, Asssassin’s Creed, Spider-Man, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, James Cameron’s Avatar, Brothers in Arms, Driver, Oregon Trail, UNO, Rayman, Earthworm Jim, Tom Clancy’s HAWX and more. Tell me that you do not begin to drool at that list.

Gameloft’s biggest competitor currently is EA Mobile with the leading sports titles Madden, NBA Elite, NCAA Football and FIFA as well as Battlefield, Need for Speed, Sims and classic board games such as Monopoly, Life and Battleship. They are running the biggest holiday sale with 70 titles tagged at only $.99, thus propelling them up the charts, but Gameloft has initiated their own $.99 sale on their older titles (N.O.V.A 2, Shadown Guardian and Eternal Legacy can’t enter the market at that price, they are worth much more than that!) as a counter-attack.

So all in all, this is my ode to Gameloft. I thank you for all of your December releases, and keep them coming. You have made my trip to my grandmother’s house for Christmas a tad more exciting 🙂

Modern Combat: Domination will hit PSN in January

Yesterday Jen Kye, Social Media Editor at Gameloft, stopped by the Playstation blog and revealed details about their latest project, Modern Combat: Domination:

Boiled down, it’s immersion in a modern war experience with one of the most complete FPS multiplayer games on PSN. Throw in PlayStation Move compatibility and you can look forward to a comprehensive shooter experience. FPS fans can expect maps featuring Middle Eastern and Western metropolitan cities, as well as high-resolution graphics and an extensive use of physics creating impressive game environments.

The Modern Combat series on the iOS platform is known for its depth and immersion in the modern warfare-type scenarios but for this title, the team working on MC:D focused solely on the multiplayer experience. Pouring all of their effort into creating tactful maps, new and engaging game modes and a Call of Duty-esque unlocks and ranking system, among other things. You can read the full interview here.
